no, i do think that; i think what you've said is accurate. and perhaps if there were fewer really tech tricks in joss, there would seem to be more variation in the edits.
but i think the real reason why some people don't find joss to be captivating is something that's more endemic in super-pro skiing (or maybe just its representation) as a whole. two of the main criticisms levied against aerials are that the tricks are at such a high level and the jumps themselves are so specialized that first off, it's hard to differentiate individual expression in the maneuvers, and second, most skiers don't have access to or can't relate to those types of features. i think that freeskiing at the highest level might soon face a similar problem of accessibility to its fanbase.
that's not to say that i don't notice when someone grabs a gangster blunt in a dubcork, or when jossi does the realest carves into the hardest tricks; freeskiing, fortunately, is still too free to ever become as regimented as aerials. however, i will say that i think those guys at the highest level are a whole hell of a lot more fun for me to watch in hood edits or any other setting where they hit features that the general public can relate to; it forces the sort of differentiation in style and trick selection that makes edits really exciting.
joss definitely has its place, as it showcases the progression of the sport at its absolute highest level. i just wish this particular event (and pro freeskiing coverage in general) wasn't so skewed towards showcasing these tricks at the expense of covering the unique stuff that really sets these guys apart in the first place. with a bit more room for style in the mix, the joss edits wouldn't have felt so much like contest coverage with really expensive cameras and i would've been probably more excited to watch them.
and i'm not trying to fight anyone... if you absolutely loved joss, that's sickk! i'm probably just getting older and don't have the right mindset anymore in the first place.
