Do you know why I care much less about GOE than the achieved BV? Because of the way Yuna was scored at CoR 2007
in comparison to how she was scored in Vancouver
. The niggardly judging in 2007-08 meant that Yuna scored 6 points less
in TES for a 7 triple program than she did for her Vancouver FS when the only "mistakes" she made in the former were a scratchy 3Lz and an omitted -2Lo. Don't try and tell me that Yuna's technical elements in Vancouver were so superior to how they were in her 2007 state, because they weren't. While certain bullets in GOE such as entry/exit, air position, etc. are part of difficulty, counting GOE as difficulty is silly (absurd, in fact) as it is obviously easier to get +GOE when one does 3 double Axels and GOE fluctuates so much between competitions. Just look at the difference in the GOE for Yuna's solo 3Salchow at 2011 (+0.8) and 2013 (+1.4) Worlds.
Therefore, I say that BV is
a better measure of difficulty than BV+GOE. BV does not account for difficult entry/exit, unusual air position, etc. but it is still much more objective than GOE.
