    They can do that, but isn't that what the program is designed to prevent...unhealthy weight cutting? It is well within the rules in most states to do that, but it is also a way to skirt the regulations.

    Obviously enough people aren't doing that or there wouldn't be as many forfeits at the lowest weight classes as there are right now.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

I know I'm skipping over the details, but it's not like the "old days" where you had until Jan 15th to make that certification weight once, then you got your 2 lbs allowance for the rest of the season.
    The certification he is referring to is when your minimum weight is established with your body fat and hydration test at the beginning of the season.
