N/S play that a double of 2C would be Stayman and all other systems are on.

2C went down two, +100 for North/South, and a tie for bottom.  1NT contracts made eight tricks; heart contracts made nine tricks.

Wherein likes the blame for this contract?

This is not an attempt to blame either North or South, but to pinpoint where in the North/South system the weakness lies.  So don't take the fact that there are three different ways to blame North for the result as a way of trying to weight the poll in South's favor.

North should not open 1NT
South should double 2C
North should reopen with a double
North should reopen with 2H
No blame; this is the price you pay for playing the double of 2C as Stayman
Your system is bad; let me tell you about my pet treatment below.
