The story of Figure Skating went from snippets on Wide World of Sports to the Olympics and then to World Championships for many years. It brought in sponsors for TV showings of these events. In my opinion, no casual fan is going to look into the rules and regulations of the CoP. After so many years of watching 6.0 when Falls cost skaters medals, they are not about to accept these errors with a wrist slap.
Most avid fans will check it out. Skaters and Coaches need to know it. Choreographers can do more without it.
What is needs is a new method of scoring somewhere between the good points of the 6.0 sstem and the CoP.
