What are your thoughts?I think this is pathetic and that ASP should never encounter an error like this. They should be embarresed, although everyone makes mistakes even computers... but still they should always run background checks before they announce something like this!
And kelly will pull another win somehow and take the title
that's some serious bs...what happens if kelly doesn't win another heat this season (exceedingly unlikely) & owen doesn't win either or both events? is someone else crowned? is that the "surf off" scenario?
i think this is going to get kelly fired up & he'll end up going on a tear for the rest of the year, just to make a point.
haha yea i just saw this on surfline. What a bunch of dunces. Even though it's exceedingly unlikely, y'all gotta admit that "Surf Off" between Ke10y and Owen at Pipe would be sick! Especially if it's firing!
C'mon now. All surfers are great at math from all the years of selling grams, eight's, quarters & Halves. It's the english grammar that is sub par, for example this forum.
But yes, the ASP is dumb!
The problem, from how I see it, is they assumed the computer program that processed all the rankings and claimed Kelly is the world champion was correct. However, there was a small error in the algorithm... Fortunately, there was some folks that properly challenged the claim.
