Exactly, a sport as popular as soccer is haunted with countless number of controversial decisions by referess. Still it's popularity seems unaffected by it and people don't question it as a sport everytime there's a problem with judging. Therefore Figure Skating must not be disconsidered as a sport. Yes, in soccer there are complains sometimes but do the decisions about results get changed? No.

This is not a real sport, there's no real consequences.
