ozzywrongMagnus should have gotten 3rd place at best...
The way I see it skiing devided into three parts on this.
There's the young kids/gaper's who see what lj did and are absolutely amazed and love it and they love line and lj cause every youngin/gaper does and we all went through that stage, for the most part.
Then you have the older guys/dudes that love the gnarliest shit and going big, so they obviously love lj's cause he went fucking huge and hit/did some insane shit. Also the "older guys"(I use that term lightly) love lj's for the classic/basic tricks that have been around forever but did go and take them to crazy features.
Then you have the rest of the people who fall somewhere in between, these people appreciate the innovation and creativity of Magnus and the bunch and these people love how just about every trick in Magnus part has never been done before or never been done like the way he did, and that he did it with mad style. Style obviously that is his own and unique and not the same shit we've been watching for years.
Now I'm guessing you fall into #2, but that wasn't very hard to guess after seeing what you had to say in your own thread on this matter. That's why you loved lj's and there's obviously nothing wrong with that, and based off the fan vote many people agreed with you.
But the thing is we all know skiing follows boarding which follows skating, now obviously you don't watch much of the 2 others, or maybe you do and I'm wrong. But I've watched the trendy filmed, unique and doing your own thing style transfer from skating to snowboarding to now skiing with the bunch. I hate to tell you but it's one of the partial ways skiing is going in a huge manner. Made even more obvious with the way the judges awarded the medals, innovation and style were obviously huge parts.
Magnus got first for so many nbd's and his own unique take on skiing and style, henrik got second for lots of creativity and mad style as we expect from him, lj got third because Although he did some pretty stock tricks in today's crazy level of skiing and didn't add his own flavour or flare to them but because he fucking sent it. In my honest opinion though stept still has sent it bigger with more style.
This may just anger you more on this subject, but I'm just trying to have a discussion and hopefully help you understand the results. But like I said earlier and i truly hate to inform you since your view on the bunch has been made obvious but this is the way a part of skiing is going so you can either start to appreciate and enjoy the little and insainly tech things they add or just continually get more frustrated. Maybe trying some of the little things like a legit peanut butter(not a nose butter) will open your mind to their level of skiing.
