Thanks Nao, great detail. Yes it was definitely clear the landing was sketchy; he was way off-center on the runway and quite tilted as his first wheels touched down. I would have thought a go-round would be appropriate in such conditions, and the expert confirmed it.

Anyway, for anyone still trying to "get" the whole conveyor belt thing, ask yourself what keeps your plane going 500 mph at 30,000 feet. It ain't momentum it gathered by speeding down the runway.
