Team 548 contacted me recently and asked if I would be willing to publish a statement from them regarding the events on Einstein on the FRC Blog. You can find their statement here. This statement represents, in part, their Steering Committee’s understanding of events that took place during the Einstein matches. To be clear, there are some differences between this understanding of events and the events as presented in the Einstein Report. FIRST continues to stand by its report. However, rather than dwelling on the differences, I want to thank Team 548 for coming forward, acknowledging their former mentor’s involvement, and apologizing to you, the FRC community. I’m sure that making this decision to come forward was very difficult, but it seems to me the right thing to do.
