    http://www.insidegymnastics.com/news...code_of_points

    This is similar to skating after the scandal in 2002 Olympics except alot of people are against this new scoring system

    There seem to be a lot of parallels with figure skating.

    "Do we think the audience not knowing or understanding our basic scoring would better serve us? Would it allow the judges to hide their mistakes and ineptness? It is very difficult to complain about a score if you do not understand the system.”

    "If judges want to cheat, they are going to cheat...If anyone thinks that he or she can make the Code of Points cheater proof, they’re delusional. The cheaters of the world can outsmart any Code."

    ITA Mathman - But if they're going to cheat and get caught let the punishment fit the crime (and it is a crime).. No sweeping any collusions under the rug.
