He could have just done a 2Axel instead and won the Bronze anyway. The judges had him way ahead. But, yes, it's annoying the amount of points people get for doing a quad splat. The problem has only gotten worse with updated CoP rules (6.3 points for a fall on a Quad Toe these days...sigh), which is a big reason for why Patrick Chan's competitive results are seen as undeserved.

Matt Savoie deserved that Bronze medal, to me. In terms of PCS he had the best LP of the competition and his jumps were good enough. Sublime choreography and interpretation, with by FAR the most difficult transitions. Really unfair scores there.
