It may not change a lot, but if it takes away just a third of the shitty robberies or splits we've seen it's worth it. There is no way monitors can make it worse.

In actuality, not Joe but if you could get guys in their ear that were completely neutral it could work. Obviously I think it would be better if guys had to go to some kind of judging school run by someone who knows the ground game, Herb Dean, Eddie Bravo a Gracie Greg Jackson really a mix of all these guys. Because if just one runs it the judges will only see those techniques.

Think. It Ain't Illegal Yet
