    The only debate is due to the sell-side trying to spackle some more make-up their story to push this stock. Revenue missed despite lower input costs and growth slowed, it's a simple as that. Yet a quick search will show you stories everywhere that only tout a 3 cent EPS beat. I warned last night that the AH rise was likely manipulation that wasn't likely to hold up this morning. Honestly, a 20% drop wouldn't have surprised me for this one. I mean, really, a restaurant chain at 30x FORWARD earnings?! Do people think they have a copyright on hot wings and are going to be able to be able to start charging license fees or something?

    So I assume you and I are shorting the stock or are we the only ones bearish on this resturant chain?
