CONTROVERSEY IN FIGURE SKATING
Jim Caple outlines last night's conrtroversey.

I think this why a lot of "real sports" fans look down on judeged sports like figure skating. If a football or hockey player complains about a call, you can always say that they should have converted on some other plays so it didn't come down to an official's call. But what can you tell Pelletier and Sale? The sport neccesarily puts the result in the official's hands. I think Pelletier saus it best, "If I didn't want this to happen to me, I would go down the hill on skis."

And if we want to see real competition, maybe we should watch people for down the hill on skis rather than this subjective stuff that puts the results in the judges' hands rather than the athletes'.
