ASP just admitted to an error in there ranking system so Kelly is no longer world champion... http://www.aspworldtour.com/2011/11/...orld-champion/
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
Results 1 to 10 of 21

KELLY SLATER: Ke11y back to KS10
Man that's insane. Somewhat complicated sounding, but there really is no excuse for botching something like this haha.

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.

That is absurd. How do you mess that up? If all he has to do is win one heat, he shouldn't have a problem seeing as how he's not human.
that's ridiculous. If I were the ASP I would have just kept it quiet and let Kelly win another heat to make it official. To answer the question above. No, someone else will not be crowned.
3 things have to happen for Owen to get it:
1. Kelly doesn't win another heat
2. Owen has to win in San Fran and @ pipe
3. Owen beats Slates in a surf off
Otherwise Slater is the champ... again.

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!
Wow, everyone makes mistakes, but this is definitely an embarrassing one for ASP.
Everyone knows surfers don't go to school and aren't very good at math. This just proves it!!!!

Ridiculousness...but I'd say Kelly will be fired up about it and make it point to win. Not that anyone else has a chance anyhow (IMO).

Especially embarrassing because of all the recent hoopla regarding how complicated the scoring is. Now they can't even figure it out. I find that hysterical.
