FSM damned ginger. He touched the wall with his hands for a split second. Not a 100! Damn sellout.
Come on Kill, he barely touched it. I mean, I'm not defending white. His run was not a 100 in my eyes, but it's not because of the hand drag. It's because he did the same tricks as last year, except cleaner this time around.Seems to me that ESPN are the sell outs. Unless of course SW bought the judges. I don't doubt that he won the event. How can it be a perfect 100 if his hand touched the wall? That is bs and undermines the event.
100 = Subjective Perfection.100 = Perfect.
Hand drag = NOT Perfect.
So without a hand drag, what are the judges gonna do then? Give him a score of 101, 102???
FINALLY! Someone gets my point. I don't think he deserved the 100 for that exact reason. It was a rehashed run that he has been throwing down for the past two seasons, just higher and cleaner. People keep talking about the hand drag like that was the big deal.IMO a 100 score should be reserved for a "game changer" run, something we've never seen. Not the same run as last year, but cleaner.
it was the snowmobile best trick competition, so it's only 1 trick per run.I heard about the snowmobile trick, but how was his other tricks? If Shaun White threw in a game changer with the current run, 100 MIGHT have been deserved.
I agree, the hand drag should have had deductions, but that is a minor issue in this whole judging thing. People are making the hand drag to be the MAIN reason why he didn't deserve the 100. That is crazy nitpicking ignoring everything else that's wrong with competitive judging these days.
