Editor’s note: We make every effort to vet the standings, compare notes on rodeo count and cross-reference probabilities to get the standings right and to keep team roping fans engaged and informed. We take our job seriously, but we cannot guarantee that things do not change as ProCom updates information on rodeo counts and payouts. We were almost wrong once—back in 2014 when Chad Masters and Kinney Harrell challenged Tom Richards and Cesar de la Cruz’s rodeo count—and that experience was traumatic enough.
