Frankly, because in any competitive venture, there are some folks who are 
"hyper competitive" and will do what it takes "to win" - it starts with small 
rule bending, and then when other folks start bending the same rule they bend a 
little more, etc.  It IS part of human nature (which some contest people, and 
other folks in other walks of life often forget - which is why some great 
ideas, in theory ("This works if we all go along") often don't work in real 
life (We'll pretend to work as long as they pretend to pay us)
