And that's how it should be done. UKC's rules are such that the judge is in charge and responsible for making all calls, except for the well-documented "big three" that automatically go to a cast vote. 1) Scoring a tree plus, circle, or minus, 2) calling time out, and 3) whether or not it's a previously scored tree.
It's always been said that a strong judge stands up and makes the calls they are responsible to make. A weak judge turns to the cast for a vote on all situations. If we had everything to go to an automatic cast vote, there wouldn't be a need to assign a judge to any cast. Worse yet, we'd open ourselves up for a potential pile of problems. BTW- this was said long before my time and was proven to carry a lot of merit then and still does.
Well I guess I'm a weak judge,.. but you left out "scratched for fighting" or is that up to a vote now....
