Howard Wasserman

I frame this as the difference between sport and non-sport.


As a former gymnast, I have to disagree with both David and Howard. To competitors, it's quite obvious who is the better athlete. They might disagree with their own score, think judges are biased against them, but ultimately, the best do win. A new scoring system can mess things up, but it often gets adjusted over time to better reflect who's the best.


"It is often said in football and basketball that referees should not decide the outcome of the game. "

And it's often said that referees who are enforcing the rules are 'deciding the outcome of the game'.
