Good analysis. Nobi went for one and FELL. Had he landed it, would it have made him the Winner? I don't know how much he got as 'partial credit'. This is fine for fans who understand the scoring, but for entertainment fans, it's perplexing.

It was vdPerren who made the Quad and it was nice to see he finally got decent scores, but he's never had a reputation. It was Mahbanoozadeh who skated a clean routine with flair but he too, does not have a reputation - maybe this comp he'll begin to have one.
There is still a valid MOD SQUAD with several members, but there is also a good case for using strategy especially for REPUTATION skaters.
