You have no clue what you are talking about. Don''t know how you can make that judgement when you are 7 states away.
I have no skin in the game but there were no games being played at this auction. I was standing right there and I thought too Jeff was in, but the auctioneer had taken someone else"s bid and then said sold. Mostly Jeff's fault. He should have made sure he was in before it was declared sold. Friend of mine who is an auctioneer in Indiana, who also was there, said technically it is against the law to re-open up the bidding up again between two people after an item is declared sold, even if both bidders thought they were in. Item can only be sold to the person the auctioneer recognized.
Its easy to blame someone else if you are the one who f***ed up.
