We're not a fan of scoring the best run as opposed to scoring the last run. Dave, do you remember ETS' "No guts, no glory" award in 2007?
Teams where given the opportunity to express their opionion on the subject. All but one liked the change.
I do remember the award. However, that type of enthusiasm doesn't come often, and most teams are (rightly) conservative. It was felt that teams would try more and try often if they were given the opportunity to score their best run, and it would make the finals better to watch.
We'll see how it goes.
