How can I show my support for my favorite players?
Check out the players in the Global Gallery. Each player has an Intensity Meter. You can like or share your favorite videos on one of the social networks linked to via our site. Likes and shares increase a player’s Intensity Meter. The judges have the final say; however, the Intensity Meter can get the coaches' attention. Can YOU help raise a player’s intensity meter enough to sway the judges?
