I think that's the point, though, isn't it? I mean, when there's a robbery, everyone knows it but the refs & it's a matter (seemingly) of firing those judges. In these close fights, though, there's too much room for interpretation & therefore a lot of wiggle room. We want to lock it down so the judges have to point to something concrete as opposed to "he was more aggressive".
