Does it bother anyone else that media talks so much about "the quad", wording it that way. I really think they way they talk about it does great disservice to the sport and to spectators who are only casual fans.
When you hear Max Aaron fell on "the quad" and Adam Rippon put his hand down on "the quad"- doesn't it sound like they were doing the exact same thing? And yet, a quad lutz is way harder than a quad toe, so Adam's hand down seems like less of a mistake.
What if I said they both landed "the quad"? Wouldn't most casual fans think they got the same amount of points? Did the same thing? But what kind of quad did they do? A toe, a sal, a lutz?
There is not one single jump called "the quad", and it just makes me angry that broadcasters and sports writers act like there is. (Then again, a lot of what broadcasters/writers do makes me angry.)
