Did I leave out that one was mine. One guy insisted that his dog wasn't mean and the other 2 dogs only had to be scratched. Handler of the fourth dog said they fought and somebody had to be scratched. I ruled that if we scratched 1 then we had to scratch all 3. So they all questioned it. A real MOH said they were all 3 scratched.
I have been in observation of that "real MOH" table many times and cast like yours pose a "real headache" to the point if all who have these questions dogs aren't scratched sometimes all the handlers are - in other words sometimes it's easier to just say you know what no one can agree on what happened and your all questioning this and your all scratched, wahala problem solved.
But also remember that none of these guys are infallible there have been times they have truly made the wrong ruling. I know of a time that one apologized Saturday morning for doing so and his was rightly overturned. I also know of one that there was no recourse for at the world when a ruling was wrong. Point, they are all human and just because it happened at AO does not set precedence for all future events.
And for the record Tar does a great job at being a MOH in decades I don't know of any of his rulings that have been overturned by UKC.
