For me, the worst part would be that the more casual fans of the sport, who are not fully conversant on the IJS, might be mislead about the scoring. I think it was mentioned on another forum that there are Japanese journalists who offered more balanced views, not only explaining GOEs properly (and why Yu-Na gets so many high GOEs) but also why Mao's mistakes with the flip and popped jump cost her. Can someone more familiar with Japanese print/broadcast media enlighten us to these more balanced opinions? I would really rather pretend that this (the video-taping) is more like the actions of the few, more like an isolated incident.
