I hate the new system for scoring Ice Skating. Obviously the need to change something after the last Olympics was great. But, I'm just not sure they got it right. Watching the men it seemed it was all about who could do the most jumps instead of who could do the best program.

I have nothing against the men who can jump and who jump well. I just don't think it's right that you can do a <insert name of jump here> and fall, but still get points for the jump since you did the rotations. If you don't land it, you don't land it. It's like Ice Hockey, if the puck doesn't go into the net you don't get the points.

Thoughts?

=) Megan
