It is always nice to see beautiful skating from a lady or a gentleman, but there was always the dispute between the difficulty of the technical versus the elegant grace of figure skating.
The Technical lovers have won with the CoP. The bigger the tricks the more points and subliminely, it affects the PCS scores. So be it for now, but someday they will get around to Mathman's suggestion of having two sets of judges - one for the tech and one for the performance. It makes sense.
And not less weird to address the coach "Krasavitza" ("Beauty").Originally Posted by gracefulswan

Though it seems to me it's the 3A that causes most falls. I don't have enough statictics at hand but it looks like that those few guys who have quads are rather consistent with them (except for the latest Worlds but it's a different story LOL).
But overall, I would definitely prefer a quadless but a clean and beautifully choreographed program.
I've heard lots of pet people call their pets "kids" or "son" or names like that.Originally Posted by gracefulswan

Another point about the quad. Now that the ISU has clarified the point that a quad counts as a different jump from the corresponding triple, if you can do a quad then you can do extra triples later in the program without a Zayak violation.
For instance, if I am reading the rules correctly, you can do a quad toe - triple toe combo [/i]and[/i] a solo triple toe, whereas if you only do a triple toe - triple toe then you can't do another triple toe.
That has always been the case. Jumps that can't be repeated (that is, can only be performed twice, one of them being in combination) are the jumps of the same type, with the same amount of revolutions. This only applies to triples or quads, there's no limit for doubles.
Agreed ... and I think he might have to branch out from the unitards at some point. I actually really liked his 2004 short program costume, though I liked last year's too.Originally Posted by mmscfdcsu
How in the world did I miss THIS the first time around in this thread???? Maybe it's time to start a Doggy Lover thred in the Cafe so we can all update each other with new dog pics, or even re-hash some old dog pics (for those of us who never tire of looking at dog pics!)Originally Posted by emma
