really difficult to say because each year i think it’s been a different reason. so i’ll make this really long and break it down year by year for you
2010: absolute robbery. they hit perfect and lost to a routine with a stunt fall and tumbling omission. i don’t have anything to say about that
2011: this year i felt like it could’ve gone to f5 or stars and the odds just were in f5s favor i guess
2012: stunt fall and a bobble. can’t be surprised they lost. shame because it was such a fun routine
2013: finals was the best performance i’ve seen out of stars since their last worlds win. but their building difficulty just wasn’t up to par with their competitors. i think that routine deserved at least second place
2014: execution. they finally had the difficulty they had been lacking but were out-executed by orange. stars were definitely sloppy in comparison and it hurts me to say that. 2nd place was earned
wcss For 2010 you are lying to yourself bc even YOU know that SE deserves that GOLD,not to hate on them but Stars has their 3peats in 2009 they were real great but it was SE year, the 360 ball up was phenomenal, they had a AMAZING pyramid, their routine was simply FLAWLESS and if SE had stunt fall and tumbling omission and still take that gold, it was probably bc they had a higher score.
