I'm a bit disapointed that many of these "professional" overclockers had so much trouble w/ CF...really concerns me as a consumer that if these guys were couldn't get CF to work, how would I (small time consumer/newbian) figure it out

Personally I wouldn't be worried. You need to bear in mind that these guys had a really limited amount of time to prep their boards for subzero cooling, decide between two processors and generally get to grips with hardware they may have never used before.

Most of the guys managed to get it running without issue, just some were unlucky.

I think you must also realise that these guys were pushing their components to the absolute limits, Some teams were struggling with Crossfire, but what you must also remember is the fact that the three winning teams did manage to get results while utilising Crossfire.
