This would only make any kind of sense with the lutz, specifically. Otherwise, it's a essentially a big reward for a bad mistake. A blatant lip would get called as a lutz- and be worth more points than a clean flip.

Reason: Put "blatant flip" instead of "lip"
I'm sorry but Michelle ALWAYS flutzed. There was a discussion about this issue some time ago and now I see again that somebody compares Michelle's flutz with a true lutz of Yu-Na's. I know that now plenty of users will claim that I don't know what i'm talking about etc., after all Michelle is the greatest skater ever etc. People, remember this: every skater has some flaws. Although Michelle had manifold wonderful qualities, the lutz jump is not one of them. She flutzed EVERY single time she performed the jump and the video you've provided us with shows very clearly that she did not stay on the outside edge. Instead, she took off from slight inside edge. The fact that Dick said something else does not mean it was the case either. Again, the video clearly shows the change of the edge.
