Maybe now people will finally realize how dumb the decision was for the IOC to award two gold medals in the figure scating controversy in the Salt Lake Olympics. It opened up a can of worms that is unlikely to go away. But it is ironic; the decision in Salt Lake was "corrected" as a North American couple had been hurt. Now, in Athens, there is no outcry from NBC or the North American public for justice. After all, an American has not been hurt this time. I don't like the inconsistency.

The difference is that in Salt Lake, there were evidence of a corrupt judge. No such allegations have been made in this case. Only that the judges made a mistake. There is an appeals process to correct that mistake, the injured party did not utilize that process. He now wants the rules to be re-written.
