Also, the changes in the skater’s athletic abilities for the worse or better in between the years that are not reflected in the PB score.
True, if we are looking for a Body-of-Work champion. But in competition, only each competition ounts for a podium finish.

Agree w/you on 2 main reasons for judging inconsistencies being:

1) Judges are human
2) Outside politics
Absolutely. That rationale carries much more of a picture than "There are other things to consider."
