    apparently the annoucers did.

    I missed kevin pearce's run, but sean white's last run was pretty damn good.

    if shaun white weren't shaun white, he would'vd gotten silver.
    he got an inflated score because of he's shaun white.

    they both had really good runs, the fact that shaun skipped out on his last cab 12 and put in a mctwist wasnt too cool.

    but dont forget, im pretty sure that in pearces 90pt run, he completely skipped out on his last trick, so shuan had that on him.

    Whites run from a technical perspective was better. KP did a strait air on his first hit and SW did a rodeo. Plus KP skipped the last hit. that's what won it for white. I would have scored it that way too (i've been judging local halfpipe comps since 1990).

    eve though shaun white had an awesome run too, he wasnt like himself he usually goes huge and blows everyone away he was very conservative last night and KP just went way bigger, even if his first hit was a straight air it was still 20 ft out

    yeah white wasn't as impressive as he normally is. I remember the announcers saying that the judges judge riders based on what they know they can do. Shaun whites run was pretty standard for him and i dont think he deserved the 91 or whatever he got.

    the judges were giving guys 82s for runs similar to shaun whites
