We're not taking sides here, but there are definitely two camps when it comes to the Alabama rig.

The Alabama rig is certainly controversial, and it's definitely illegal in some states, but as of this post it's permitted on the major tournament circuits, much to the chagrin of some detractors. If you oppose the Alabama rig, you can sign this petition and maybe someone somewhere will take a look. If you support the Alabama rig, just keep throwing it!
