With Shuttle vs Royal, while it wouldn't have been auto-win for Shuttle if the crowd didn't interfere, I feel like it would be silly to say the interference didn't (significantly) decrease Shuttle's chance. Unlike Flash, Shuttle didn't win. It's commendable Shuttle put out any potential fires.
I mentioned booth in an earlier post, because I imagine it's better than nothing at all. I believe it's something ASL could invest in given we're on the 16th edition already.
