Under the old system each judge would have to decide for him/herself. Now this determination is left to the caller and tech specialist.

    I see where you come from. Seems by seperating the judgers (give EOG) and caller (decide what element), the bad executed element could be DOUBLE punished. I, too, can't decide if this is the right way of judging.

    I see two scenario here:
    1) Cheated triple with RIGHT entry/land edges.
    2) Cheated triple with Rwong entry/land edges.

    Though I'm not sure if the first scenario is possible. I have no problem with double punish in the score with the second scenario.

    The question is when a 1/2 cheated triple considered as an overrotated double, it is very possible the skater also get EOG deduction on that double, since the landing will be in diff direction/edge? Now since the caller and judgers are diff persons, will judge still give the low EOG had they knew the item is identified as double? I believe in old system from judge's view you only got one deduction for an bad executed triple.

    Whoa!

    I think the new judging system seems really weird, and confusing! Lol!

    ITA! Though the jumps are important, I believe the artistry and presentation are what judges should also take very seriously.
