harry potter and the hypocritical bloodsport

I haven’t read the books, so this might be addressed in them. We saw the latest potter film last wednesday. It was good, an enjoyable adventure. But one thing struck me as either dumb or hypocritical.
It’s accepted that the tri-wizard cup is potentially fatal, and practically everyone cheers this fact. Yet, when someone is killed they’re all shocked. Why would it be okay for young diggery, or any of the other contestants or bystanders, to be killed or injured so long as it’s the ministry of wizards doing it? (bear in mind that when the body turns up at the grandstand noone knows that lord vol au vent is to blame. As far as they know it’s a sporting injury.)
