My opinion on the new rule
Posted By: Kevin D Stewart

I took the anti trust law from another forum.
according to The Clayton Antitrust Act (1914)
It shall be unlawful for any person engaged in commerce,
in the course of such commerce, either directly or indirectly,
to discriminate…… where the effect of such discrimination may be substantially
to lessen competition or tend to create a monopoly in any line of commerce.”
The IPF doesn't fall under this U.S. law.
They can keep you from competeing in the world games, IPF worlds or anything associated with the IPF.
Though this rule cannot be enfoced by the usapl,if the IPF suspends you ,then you cannot lift in the usapl meets.
The amendment is a cover all basis this time.
If the rule is enforced across the board ,it's going to hurt the lifters who want to stay in the IPF/USAPL but want to compete in other meets.WPO,ARNOLD CLASSIC,
BENCH AMERICA,MOUNTAINEER CUP.
Usapl has a lot of lifters that compete in those meets.
It's going to be interesting to see what happens.
