    It’s a time filler for me... anyone like or need the tension graphs?

    @APB thetensoin graph is not doing a lot for me, maybe a training aid, but for spectators another distraction from the sport, in my opinion.

    Great to see something different. I think the data and the overhead shots are a refreshing change to the coverage we are used to.

    @Gar Martin Malarczuk, Argentinian skier beat out Travers and Freddie for strongest pull.

    Anyone know the Women's top five?

    @andjules thanks was hoping he did!

    Great webcast! Congrats to all!
    The tension meter was interesting
  • andjulesandjules Posts: 742 Crazy Baller
    @jcamp the women's finals (top 4) were:
    Regina (1)
    Whitney (2T)
    Manon (2T)
    Jamie Bull (4)

    I think 5th in scoring would have been Brooke Baldwin

    Can someone help with the rules for scoring?
    I was watching the cast and noticed that Jason McClintock scored 1.5 buoys on one of his passes. I believe the announcer confirmed his score with the judges at the time.
    To me it looked like only a 1.25 buoy count, but I'm just not clear on how the rule book judges scoring on how the skier rounds the ball.
    Thanks.

    @hemloc the thing to keep in mind is that none of the event judges were sitting where that picture was taken (I believe). The only views relevant for the call are from the boat and the towers where the judges are located.

    But based on that photo alone, does look like 1.25. Looks close though. Like if he skied a few more feet with his hand on the handle it would be 1.5 because he would cross back inside the buoy line.

    Ya, could be 1 not 1.25 or 1.5. Be interesting to see the boat judge view.

    And @Horton go back to your vacation.

    That was a rad event. Love the webcast, love the spot. Anyone else surprised that the women’s 1st place is only 2/3 of the Mens? Great scores on both sides... so easy to do 2500/2500. My opinion.

    probably based on number of entries

    I agree with @horton - score is 1. Rope left the hand before the ski made to to the line running through the boat guides and the turn buoy. Just remember, the judges are human looking at it one time in real time. No need to nit-pick the calls. The sport is too small and there isn't enough money riding on it to justify video review of every buoy.

  • LeonLLeonL Posts: 2,229 Crazy Baller
    We have the advantage of a stop action shot, but it's pretty clear that the front binding didn't cross the extended buoy line prior to loss of handle. So, 1.

    I thought it was a great webcast. Thoroughly enjoyed watching it. Great conditions and high quality skiing.

    How many pro events have we had in the last few years where there has been a photo taken on the bank that would suggest the official score is incorrect? Happens all the time now.

    Think we need something like the "Lexi Rule" that Golf adopted . . .

    Also, just three weeks after Thompson was hit with the four-shot penalty, the USGA and R&A released a new Rules of Golf decision decision (34-3/10) limiting video evidence in two ways:

    1. If an infraction can’t be seen with the naked eye, there’s no penalty, even if video shows otherwise.

    2. If a tournament committee determines that a player does “all that can be reasonably expected to make an accurate estimation or measurement” in determining a line or position to play from or to spot a ball, then there will be no penalty even if video replay later shows that to be wrong.

    Success is failure that just hasn't happened yet
  • lpskierlpskier Posts: 2,158 Mega Baller
    The tournament score was in an R, no? If so, there was boat video and a video review judge watching the screen. If he/she disagreed with the tower judges, it’s his job to bring to the CJ’s attention for further review. If he didn’t, and there were no protests, my guess is the skier got the score he deserved.
