This logic or whatever the logic chopped in order to say nothing was affected, there's still no way the judges could possibly have known what was affected. All they really did is go by what they thought most likely, and what was most convenient for gameplay. It's their game at the end of the day, so sure, they can do that. Most people seem to think it was the right call. I think it was unfair, particularly of the show to frame it like nothing Casey might've done would've mattered, when, again, who knows either way. Deigning to change his prize level would just be admitting in a small way that they screwed up in a material way, so I wouldn't expect the show to do that or to invite Casey back. But if I were him, I know how I'd feel and what I'd want.
