Should it not be know as Danny LaRue sit start?
A new name for an existing problem is not fair play and is demeaning to the FA of the original problem.
Think the news team should change this......
Have to agreed its a bit disrespectful to over-dub the name of the original problem. All that work cleaning/developing a problem just for someone to add a move and stamp their name over yours makes all that hardwork pointless. (well, not entirely but you know what i'm trying to say.)
Either name it Danny LaRue SS, or list it as a new problem alongside the existing ones on that crag.
