Thank you for the link. It was an interesting read.
What I found most interesting was that out of the nine couples evaluated, the author ("Ballroom Judge" Stevens, who I guess writes a blog) didn't agree with the DWTS judges scoring on any of them. Not one.
In fact he was quite emphatic ("highway robbery," "way overscored for such a sad performance," etc.) that the judges blew it on every call. He criticized Len as much as the other two.
This tells me two things:
1. Judging ballroom dance is not an exact science, if reasonable minds can so markedly disagree. Another way to put it is that it's not just about the dancing. It's about who or what the person likes.
2. I find it very hard to believe that the DWTS judges were 100% wrong and the blogger is 100% right, which suggests to me that Phillip Stevens is just another guy with an opinion about the show, and a pretty high opinion of himself.
