I happened to be watching some of the figure skating stuff (don't ask me why because I don't know other than I'm a heterosexual man that has an excuse of a girlfriend who wants to watch) but the judges seemed to be giving out low scores for everybody. According to the announcers, anyway. I wouldn't know what a good score is.

I will say...that 18 year old from Canada had the most magnificent ass that I've seen in a long time and the way she twirled it around had me mesmerized from start to finish.

That's rather amusing.  Maybe not quite as amusing as what you could lip read coming out of US figure skater Debi Thomas's mouth after Elizabeth Manley's skate at the 1988 Calgary Olympics though.

As has been noted millions of times before, if winning and losing in an event is based entirely on some asshole's subjective opinion, it doesn't belong in the Olympics. It's an art, not a sport.

I liked the part where her score was lower than the girl who fell on her ass. That made sense.

This. So much this. If you fall, I'm sorry, but no soup for you.

Those aren't based "entirely on...subjective opinion."  The job of the refs is to determine what happened, which is objective.  Although their view of reality is inherently subjective, the reality which they are supposed to be measuring is objective.  Basically, if a computer can do it in principle, it's objective.

Another way to express that same point: if 'artistic' points are involved, it is not a sport.

Of course, it may possible for a computer to judge many of the points in figure skating, but not artistry.

Yup. I've played backyard baseball, football, hockey with friends. There's no such thing as a pickup figure skating event, where everyone playing can tell as soon as someone makes a move whether they scored or not.

Figure skating judging changed years ago, they now use what's called the ISU Judging System. It's become much more technical and artistic content is much lower than it used to be. After each skate, they can look at a replay to determine if a skater completed a jump or landed on two feet, among other things. (Yes, figure skating had instant replay long before that other "sport", baseball)  A skater's scores now looks like a spreadsheet, each jump has a base value and a grade of execution.

For the record, I'm glad baseball remains so subjective. Stopping the game after every pitch to determine if it really was a ball or a strike would take way too long.

Gawdzila: mikaloyd: She farked up her double jump. It was the right score.

Either her score was the wrong score, or the chick who fell down had the wrong score.
And she didn't fark up her double jump very badly at all, the deduction should be minimal.


The second jump in her triple-triple combination was downgraded because she didn't rotate it fully - that was fair. The negative GOEs she got across the board for that combo didn't help.

Her program components scores were bullshiat, however. No way should she have been a few points behind Lipnitskaia on those marks. If her components scores had been more in line with the top three, which they should've been, she would've been ahead of Asada overall.

I thought it was interesting that the commentators thought Lipnitskaia might have deserved an edge deduction on her combination, but one of them noted that the panel wasn't bothering to review any of her jumps. Skating while Russian, especially in Russia...

You'd have a point if happened in EVERY GODDAMNED GAME!!!

Bad calls happen, and while it's fun to speculate that the refs/umps who make them are on the take, the bribing of Olympic figure skating judges is documented fact.

No it wouldn't.  A computer can figure out a ball or strike before the ball is even in the catchers mitt.
