I am discouraged to see that skaters are not credited to try more difficult things. I think the new judging system should change their rules in the downgrade jump.
For example, here is Alissa Czisny triple lutz/triple toe
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=baXsIoWx9EM (at 0:34). I think that the system should yes credit a downgrade triple toe but why the GOE should be negative, like we see, this was not a so bad jump. The combo look great and I think that the judge should give a GOE normal like if it was clean considering the good ending of the jump.
So, this combo jump should merits a GOE of 0 or +1.
An other example, here is Crystal Kiang
Her triple lutz at 0:50 yes should be downgrade and considering that she two foot her landing. She should receive a GOE of -2.
Her triple loop at 1:18 yes should be downgrade but I think that she should have received a GOE of 0 because the jump in our eyes look not bad.
Basically, I'm just trying to say that yes the jumps should be judged and downgrade if necessary. But why must a downgrade jump should given a negative GOE. I think if a jump downgrade would be considered like a clean jump, it would help the sport and the skaters would be less afraid to try.
Do you think, it will be a good idea to change this rule ?
