    There is no doubt that the contract has been fulfilled. I think what some fans and especially me wonder whether Oppegard, Danny, Her sister, will do anything to change it. I think TT must have given her many moves in the field and connecting steps into jumps which she isn't totally used to doing. If she is not comfortable with MIF into an element, she may just leave it out for comfortable crossovers - not good!

    IMO, it is not enough to scatter elements around the ice interspersed with nothing more than forward and backward crossovers. This scenario is just not choreography. It is what divers do to show off their elements when they walk up the stairs to the platform. The difference is divers are judged soley on their elements whereas in figure skating we have these PCS to contend with.

    Michelle will indeed have musicality and beautiful arms and fingers and the best line in skating but imo it is no longer enough.

    I'm hoping I see TT's original choregraphy for her at Campbells, and then what the family starts doing to it for the GPs, Nats, and Olys. I'm hoping TT gets back to California for a tweaking before the Olys.
