When I first watched the 2002 Olympics I thought that S&P deserved the gold BY FAR and were robbed. However, now after seeing the programs in not such an emotional state a few years later, I still think S&P were a bit better than B&S, but B&S were not as inferior as I'd previously thought.
The problem with all this is that the die-hard fans of B/S find it very difficult to accept that there was a conspiracy admited to by one of the parties involved, but that is fact. Unfortunately, the other conspirator did not come forward as did the first, and the ISU ceased the investigation with a plea to the OIC for an unheard of awarding two gold medals. it was given by the OIC with a stern warning for the ISU to clean up their Act. Hence Secret Judging and the CoP.
