Good points. I can't disagree.
In that case, why couldn't they just enclose the whole thing like a tube at a water park? Make the top half clear so they'd still be visible. It seems like common sense to me, but I admittedly know nothing at all about this sport.
Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.
