The highest scoring playoff match is fishy

Officially https://www.thebluealliance.com/ has a 199 point match listed as the playoff high score of the season. I am a little suspicious of this match for a few reasons.

  1. The robots appear to be higher than the 4 foot 4 starting height
  2. During the match, the robots are collecting cargo directly from the upper hub. In violation of G405
  3. I count 7 robots on the field during most of the match
  4. The robots continue playing even after the match ends. (maybe broken FMS?)
  5. No bumpers? at all?

I am not calling out FIRST or any of the teams involved, however many strange occurrences happen in this match and I would like to get to the bottom of it. Anyway here is the match if you wanted to watch.
