I totally get what you’re saying and I think it’s a good idea in theory. However in F1 there is a bigger disparity in results because the car is so important. Skiing doesn’t have quite the difference between skis. Also, everyone gets front and center attention. Whereas, F1 drivers can maybe be overlooked in the middle of the pack with a car with a slower pace.
I like the idea, I just don’t know how it would be implemented without idiots voting on something they don’t understand
Isak_lonnI get what your saying and I’m kinda young so didn’t even know there had been this system. What you saying is true and I think the fact that he won is kinda whack. I absolutely agree that we as viewers should have nothing to do with whom actually wins but I think it would be fun with a community voting. Kinda as they do with real ski but not as big with big air and just as a fun side thing or whatever.
but yeah I do believe it’s kinda hard cuz in f1 the driver who won does not necessarily mean he did the best race. While in freesking the one who performs the best is always the one that wins or at least should. This system could also lead to wrong results since the more popular skiers would get more of the votes leading to the same persons wining the viewer vote and that would likely influence the judges.
so I guess this system might not be a good idea. My thoughts come from the fact that I think that the results quite often are, in my mind, wrong. Does anyone even know who the judges are and how they decide the score. I think we almost should have some sort of explanations to why they give the score that they do but this would destroy the fast pace we are used to.
Instead of working on a “easier” trick and making a perfect version of that trick with as much style as possible it feels like for a lot of skiers like for example some of the Swiss skiers The trend has become to just try to make as “hard” trick as possible. I just feel like it has become way to much of a spin to win comp and that we should try to work for the game to change. Style should score higher than spins!
