400- wins over zero (rules questions)

It has been a long time since i was able to compete and make several hunts in a row. I just attended a (30) hunt this weekend and had a great time seeing and huting with all the folks at the hunt. I am sending this post for PKC officials, because I feel that the rules centered around the cast winner is not ideal. I have read the rules and fully understand the rules as they are written today, but it is my opinion that the struture of the rules are not condusive to selecting the best performance of the cast.
Strike Tree Final Score
Dog A - 100-
25 circle 100 circle
75 deleted (end of hunt) 100- 100- 100- 400-


Dog B - 50-
100 deleted (end of hunt) 50-

Dog C - 50 deleted (came into tree)
50 deleted (end of hunt) 0

The rules as they are today makes Dog A the cast winner. Keep in mind all dogs were hunting and competing. Never was there a hound not competing or in woods.

Rules state that circle points count a zero!
If circle points count as zero, how does 400- win?? isn't zero better than 400-

Jerry please explain the logic behind this rule.
