I don't get why....

    So, I was checking out Brit Cox's current WC standing and noticed that all freestyle events are clumped together in the standings. Sure you can sort by discipline. But moguls is different to aerial is different to skier-x.
    So, Brit Cox is currently standing at #2 moguls but #7 overall.
    So, I don't get why FIS clumps them together. Or am I missing something?

    As an aside....it seems that grass skiing is a FIS discipline!

    yes, but why include them all together in the rankings. Surely, while under the banner of freestyle, they should have separate rankings. Makes no sense to me

    I don't get why the judges don't use video and only see the skiers from head on.
