Mayhem again in a judged sport. It wouldn’t bother me if the IOC got rid of all judged sports. Either judge it from slow-mo instant reply or dump it. Take diving for an example, if you’ve watched it, how many times do you hear while watching the reply, the TV guys say “ there’s a mistake, but I don’t think the judges could see it from their angle” if they think this would take to long, then cut the competition down to 1 round. Why do they need 6?

In a sport like Tae Kwon Do it is easy to declare a winner...the last one standing.. but I guess that would be too hard on the job prospects of Olympic judges

Either way, considering on who is right or wrong.

It's not cool to kick a referee.

as for the whole diving thing the judges should be placed in a different places... a few on the side and a few that will look straight on to see the form breaks cause i agree its annoying as hell to her them say that its wrong but the judges cant see...
