It does make the Olympics a little more intense to watch. I'll tell you though, even with the new rules, I really believe the Japanese deserved to win last night. Those routines on the high bar were incredible. I didn't know some of those things were even possible.

A lot of other positions might have been switched around if they had been able to drop a score, but I don't think it was a terrible rule. I've heard the gymnasts sure don't like it. I think it might have played in favor of the U.S.A. since silver is about as high as they were prepared to win and they managed to get it.
