You Make the Call
« on: August 29, 2016, 08:32:50 PM »
Anyone remember this from football in the 70-80's? I think it was actually Howard Cosell who used to do it (yes I'm getting old). They would replay a play and you guessed how it was called, only we do it in Powerlifting. My friend Meghie in GTA did this squat over the weekend, what's your call? If you leave the sound off you won't hear how the judges scored it.

I'm guessing it was red lighted for invisibility?

I can't see the video either  ;D

Because none of us are friends with Meghie, we can't see the videos.

Ahhh... the intricacies of posting Facebook videos....

That was clearly good. She was below parallel, didn't even have to pause the vid to see that.

Huh, that's odd!  I don't see any problems at all on that squat.

Looks good, but you see squats that look good get red lights and squats that look high get white.  It's the shitty part of the game we play.  Could be the camera angle, or they could be dinks.  Same goes with the other two big lifts.

I'd be on the fence.  Proper depth is the hip crease has to drop below the Knee.  Which, in the split second you have on this video, the crease looks like it's right there.  If the judges were looking for "Below Parallel without Question", I can see them giving Red lights. In this situation, where it's a very tight call, and I think you hit parallel, I'd have given whites. Again, she hit parallel, but I don't think she broke parallel.  And depending on what instructions the judges have "Must be parallel, or Must break Parallel, or Must Break Parallel without question", that's three different depths right there.

Sucks that she got reads, on such a close call, though.
