Some of the officiating has been odd anyway. Just look at some of the decisions in the velodrome...

In a lot of events - for instance gymnastics and the diving - the commentators also repeat that desicions and scores in some events are made in real time without recourse to video and diferent camera angles. Seems odd not to use the technology that's available.

Shows discipline not to smack the officials in the face with the hammer to see if they missed it that time!

Yeah that boxing ref was unbelieveably blatant in his refusing to follow the rules. At least these wrongs were righted and credit was given where it was due.
