He attempted to step up against high rank authorities in the ski industry. Now he's baisicly fucked for life. Not going into more details since its classified info not meant to be known publicly anyway.

the only thing I can think of is the fact that he was the first competitor of the day. Judges aren't warmed up and don't want to throw out a banger score if someone else does better then shit gets outta hand. He fucking killed it. Should have at least got top 3

Not clean landings, not enough dubs. I think henrik has gotta know this, as it happens every single time he competes. I thought we had gotten over this. Henrik doesn't seem to give a shit, so neither should we.
Ever since about 3 years ago, judges in major competitions have finally started paying attention to the difficulty of rail tricks, and i think thats why Russ's run wasn't scored well. His rail tricks weren't really that technical compared to the those who were on the podium. I'm not saying they weren't difficult or impressive on an everyday standard, but i agree with the judges(Inb4 Geopper did the same 360 sw up... but Geopper hit the rail not the box).
This is just speculation, but i also think it has to do with his grabs. Judges have been paying much more attention to style (hence Taylor seatons and Duncan adams pipe runs) and, even though Russ' double grabs are difficult, they don't look good. There are plenty of grabs and tricks in the ski industry that are difficult, but we dont do them because they aren't stylish.
lacked amplitude, he landed around the first painted line while others landed down at the second. probably should've gotten a higher score, but that run wasn't podium worthy compared to the top 3 runs IMO.

Your wording there really bugs me. The actual act of skiing (and the tricks you do) aren't part of the "industry". The industry is everything around skiing, not the skiing itself. Skiing is a sport, the ski industry is a business. The difficulty of different grabs has nothing to do with any industry.
Sorry about that. Continue with the bitching about judging. I wonder if there's ever been a pro comp where everyone came out happy about the results.
