    UR jumps GOEs

    When a jump is overall good, but UR, I don't think that the GOE should be negative. A few examples:
    Cesario's 3Lo and 3S: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmWjic85sUs
    Liza's 3Lo (3:47): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wta2ifZiMcA
    Dai's 3F (4:06): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64QdXaZsUxs
    They're excellent jumps, with good height, landing position, flow and speed, steps before (and sometimes after) them, that fit the musical structure... But they're <. I think that, in cases like these, the BV should be lower because of the <, but the GOEs should be positive (+1 and +2), if there are no evident mistakes in the jump... Obviously, when a jumps is << (or <) and there's an evident and visible cheat in the landing, the GOE should be negative.
    What do you think?

    I don't believe in positive GOE's unless something "special" is done (like a lutz with both hands in the air, or something like that). But, you are correct. It's either a perfectly done double/triple or a poorly done triple/quad. It can't be made into a poorly done lesser jump, or it shouldn't, anyway, if it's landed cleanly and there are no other problems.

    no, all of those jumps in the linked videos should have minus goe.

    As I understand it, the Judges should only be rating the quality of "what was performed". However, I have seen cases where a skater had positive GOE from most judges, with negatives from a couple judges (I can't recall if it was doubling a jump, or an edge call). I had wondered if perhaps those negative judges had recognized the technical mistakes, and penalized the skater for it with the GOE. If so, aren't they over-stepping their authority and doing the Tech panels job ie. adding more punishment besides the lower BV?

    Yes, the rules say that a < jump should receive negative GOE, what I'm saying is exactly that this rule (in my opinion) is wrong...

    What the rules now say is that a jump with a << call (downgrade, at least 180 degrees short of rotation) should have the GOE reduced by 2-3 points and the GOE must be negative.

    For the < call (underrotation, 91-180 degrees short), the GOE should be reduced by 1-2 points, but the GOE does not need to be negative.

    So suppose a judge sees a jump or jump combination that looks great to her in real time and gives it +2. After the end of the program when the tech panel adds the < call, the judge should go back and reduce her GOE. But she's perfectly free to reduce it to 0 or -1 -- no need to go negative.

    If the tech panel's call was <<, then the judge would need to change the mark to -1 or lower. And wonder why it didn't even look suspicious to her in real time.

    Well, if there was no "70%" rule, I would agree. Otherwise, I think it's just another way of encouraging URed jumps.

    For example, URed 3Lz with +2(=1.4) GOE would equal 5.6. That is even higher than 3F's BV. URed 3A with +1 GOE would equal 7.0, and that is about high as well-executed 3Lz. If judges aren't forced to give negative GOEs to URed jumps, they're probably going to use GOE as an another way to give certain skater higher score than he/she deserves.

    Of course, there are always exceptions. If the jump isn't obviously URed and could've passed for a fully rotated jump, then I don't think negative GOE should be necessary.

    I agree. When the jump is clearly URed even to the naked eye, I agree with the negative GOE or at least 0 if the jump is cleanly landed. But there are examples of Ured jumps who really looked good in real life, the UR is only slightly evident in the slow motion and in this situation I think a single penalty (reducing the base value to 70%) is enough.

    And the rules do allow for that now.

    but shouldn't UR'ed 3axel be worth as much as well executed 3Lz? It's still more rotations to do and it's a far harder jump, even UR'ed.
    So yes, I generally agree that if the underrotation is not visible to the naked eye, in real time, not slow-motion and especially if the jump is preceeded with difficult steps or has a creative exit, in my opinion it should receive a positive GOE. However, with the rule that gkelly cited, it rarely happens, because how often do you see a jump worth +3? After applying the -2 GOE deduction the jump is almost always left with 0 or even more usually with -1 or -2.
    Is there a solution? Maybe change the rules so that an underrotation should equal a -1 deduction in GOE, so if a jump is worth +2, it'll get +1 with underrotation instead of 0. Not showing underrotation calls to the judges may be another solution, though it could lead to the situation where visibly underrotated jumps get as much as +2 GOE and it would be easy to manipulate. A judge could always say - well, I didn't see the UR in the real time.

    There was a season when the judges didn't see the "<" which I think it was great because if the jump was very well executed, the GOE could be 1 and even +2. However back then a "<" was penalized as a downgrade so even with the +1 and +2, the points for the jump would not be too high. If the same rule would apply today, we may see situations in which a fully rotated jump with moderate or negative GOE would get less than a well executed UR jump. I have no problem with that but I am sure it would infuriate some people.

    UR is a UR, a flaw. Why should it be rewarded?

    How is it reworded? It is penalized: by reducing the base value. Why should it be penalized twice if the jump is cleanly landed?

    No. UR doesn't get BV reduced, only << do (please correct me if I'm wrong). The only way it gets penalized is via reduction in GOE. If GOE is positive, then there's no penalty for UR.

    BV is different for URed jumps-for example, URed 3Lz gets 4.2(70% of 6.0, original BV) as its BV.
