They could start by cleaning house bigtime and canning a whole batch of incompetent judges. The judging in these Games was utter BS. I'd have given Nemov a 9.85, and I could have stomached a 9.8, but no lower than that, because the deductions were not there to support anything lower. And how in the flaming bloody hell those doofuses who scored the women's floor tonight could give Mohini Bhardwaj a 9.312, even out of a 9.7 start value, is utterly beyond rationality. There were maybe 2 tenths of deductions in that routine at a max, and that's only if you're being chickencrap about it. They need to fly in a planeload of pink slips and start handing them out to those judges one right after another. There'll probably be other big changes in the system, but what the FIG really needs to do is get rid of the bad judges, because if they don't, NO system will work for long.
