Re: Crossfit Open 2016

I am confused by the 15 percent penalty that JB got on 16.4. So 100 bad reps are worth 85 good reps? I'd think the just thing to do is to count the number of good DLs that JB did instead and have that, up to 55, as his score, and if that came to 55, then plus the number of reps done (wall-balls + rowing) after the 55 *good* deadlifts. As he didn't do 55 good deadlifts in the 1st round JB's score would be at most 55 plus however many wall-balls and rowing calories he did in the *second* round. Sends a message that movement standards are important.

This sort of thing that was done does give ammunition to the people who say CF is not a sport.
