6 points! 6 for falling but this system rewards execution? Please.
I love Yu-na. I only bitched when she won the long program at Worlds for a poor skate.. And I thought her PCS at Skate America for that awful Yu-na bomb were too high as well (if you want to be fair). And if you want to complain about Rachael Flatt being awful and not deserving to win Skate America. And I won't say that Yu-na didn't deserve to win because her huge lead from the short was fair. And yes I agree that Rachael is boring as heck skater. But in the end the way I look it is if Yu-na skates like crap well than she deserves to get low scores. Would have had that one closer.No offence, but weren't you the person who bitched the most last season when Yuna won everything by accumulating huge GOEs for her gorgeous jumps? and when Plushenko didn't beat Lysacek with a 4/3?
As for my complaints about GOE. My real issue is that its clear the judges use GOE to pad scores. And so I'm all for positive GOE being curtailed a bit.
What I want, and what I've wanted a long time, is for errors, messy programs to be penalized more. So you don't see any ridiculousness like Kostner's silver medal at 2008 Worlds.
In the end its not about "one jump" that I take issue with. I would have been seriously fine with giving Daisuke the win over Plushenko and Evan at the Olympics because I thought both were dire. Although I certainly wouldn't wuz robb Daisuke. I'm not one who thinks one mistake should take someone out, and I'm for the whole program being looked at. But when I see skaters falling multiple times etc, and then I see them getting huge scores, it drives me bananas. And I don't care who you are or if your my most favorite skater in the whole world.
