Guessing something to do with the total number of possible scores and actual scores.

Except that the lost card formula averages down the scores because of the lowest score being included in the average.

So you really had 2 tables of teams get screwed or about 29% of the entire field. Seems to me that if 29% of the teams have the wrong score, it is hard to say that it wouldnt have impacted the final results and that the contest was not statistical impacted by the decision of the reps.
