From Baron Malcolm Alberic:

This event was an example of why the tourney prize should not be too valuable. Yes a great prize can be a good draw however, after this event there was a lot of talk about Rhino Hiding and unchivalrous behavior on the field. It seemed that too many fighters wanted the prize too badly. I will not go in to details or name names but this problem was noted in the Second Quarter marshals report as “A major dispute” the matter was discussed with marshal in charge, principles involved and the knights in attendance, no consensus was reached. Two knights withdrew from the lists. I would also like to point out that none of these accusations or complaints were made against the winner of the tournament. Sir Armand de Sevigny
