Word on the street is this is just the beginning, so let's get this party started:

1) Dwayne doctored the tapes to look like MAME.
2) The direct capture board redigitized things in a different order making it look MAME-like
3) Image burn-in on the monitor caused the direct feed to look wrong
4) I have a lot of unused polaroid film from the 80's that I regretfully didn't use to capture my 5.51s, and when I take a photo of my phone playing Billy's video off of Facebook, I don't get an image that looks exactly like one posted in the dispute thread.
5) Todd Rogers witnessed it live, and that should be enough to convince anybody since video evidence wasn't even required.  So stop looking at it.

Join in the fun and fill in the rest!  Team Billy needs some inspiration from the experts!

6) VHS artifacting causes the drawing frames to look like MAME. Kappa

Number 3 has some merit, and I am sticking to it. We need some experts to really delve into that and see what is going on there.

7) Billy Mitchell is not how he's portrayed in the movies.  He's a nice guy.  So it can't be MAME

8 )  Doesn't look at all like MAME, it's simply a mass hallucination that is somehow transmitted through the video itself, a bit like the Ring but way stupider

9) "Why would any player, nearly eight years ago, desire to put a MAME computer in the back of a Nintendo cabinet and connect the output to a Sanyo monitor?"

10) A family man who successfully runs both a restaurant and a hot-sauce business, who managed to negotiate pretty favourable terms for himself in the movie industry, and who has a host of associates and contacts in the video game industry, would not have the technical expertise to press F7 on a computer keyboard.

11) The people disputing Billy Mitchell are just doing it because they are jealous of Mitchell and his popularity.

13) Because there is a sudden spike in demand for my one-of-a-kind "Free Billy Mitchell" t-shirts, and I want to cash in.

14) The people who supplied the cabinets he played on were all jealous of him and intentionally set him up for this.  They then somehow leaked it to the DK community to trigger a deeper investigation.

15) Because a mid-90s Sega pinball tech said that doing a MAME would be way harder.

16) Because an analog video chip digitally manipulated a video signal to drop frames.
