To be honest that shouldn’t be, While FIRST is using an Automated Scoring system as in previous years they have also been using a fail safe manual scoring system that Ref’s are manning each match. Esp. when it comes to the trackball being counted. The system should be checked for accuracy upon setup to see how off the score could be. Thats what we did in Jersey :).
Mistakes are still made, in one match two of our hurdles weren’t counted and we were all joking that we were hurdling the balls too fast to count. But in all fairness I would never want to be a ref, here’s a high-five to those brave few who put on the zebra stripes.
