Did You Know...... that the omission issue was addressed from two ends at the same time?
Poll option in the NSL Forum
The NSL News story compared the official score for this jump with the meet video and offered two different interpretations of the critical situation. The first interpretation explained how the official score (5 points) of this jump at the SSL Valentine's Meet could be reached and understood.
Judges Judy Celaya and Klaus Wellens at the Malevsky World Cup 2004
The NSL News story included a new topic in the NSL Forum, which came along with a poll option for the visitors. It happened by pure coincidence that the forum's moderator, Elsinore GT member Steve Miller, resumed a different discussion in the forum of the World News at the same time.
This topic was brought up on December 23, 2004, long before the IPC Meeting decided over the rule changes. The NSL News had posted the IPC agenda for the meeting and had asked the NSL audience to provide feedback. The discussion of this topic continued even after the new rules were already posted.
Equinox' infringement situation in round four, see video

FAI Chief Judge Klaus Wellens at the World Meet in Croatia 2004
Wellens provided clarification for the Equinox case after reviewing the video. However, it was not great news for the defenders of the official score at the SSL Valentine's Meet in Eloy. Wellens interpreted the critical situation as an omission and would have posted the official score of 2 points:
Thanks for the clarification from the highest ranks - whether it is a popular one or not. Wellens seems to indicate that it is probably not a great idea to completely skip any formation of the required sequence in any case. Next logical question would probably be: what to do if the inter goes bad? The NSL News will follow up with more information.comments / feedback
