    Winter MARSHALL's LIVE TV

    Winter MARSHALL's in BOSTON 12/11/05, will be on live TV, check out the page on the usfsa website

    tickets available at

    www.ticketmaster.com


    www.agganisarena.com

    $50, $75, $150

    Each skater will perform one exhibition, then fans will call a 1-900 number to vote
    Then the top two ladies, and top two men will skate a second exhibition LIVE followed by a second call in vote

    Michelle Kwan
    Sasha Cohen
    Alissa Czisny
    Emily Hughes

    Johnny Weir
    Timothy Goebel
    Evan Lysacek
    Micheal Weiss


    I don't know what to make of this, but the voting will probably just be a popularity contest, and not in the least objective. I think we could have a judging scandal at a cheesefest, and we'll be the judges, LOL

    So does that mean that to vote you need to pay? (this is irrelevant to me anyways because I like in Canada) But it seems like they're not going to get many votes from your casual channel-surfer if it's going to cost them money. Anyways, I'm sure we can give the money to Michelle now And, despite my wishes, and Alissa's recent success, Sasha will most likely be the other skater in the top two. Emily, is pretty much out of the question I think.

    Are these skaters going to be doing their competitive programs or exhibition numbers? Do you think they will do any high level jumps or will it just be a whole bunch of triple sals and toes?

    I'm skeptical (sp?) of the format, but I'm sure I'll watch anyway, and I'm sure it will be of some entertainment value. Whether or not it will accomplish their goal of getting the casual channel-surfer interested in figure skating, I'm not sure, but I know we will all have a guilty-pleasure Sunday afternoon watching some fluffy "competition"

    So when/what network is this being televised?

    ETA: And of course the one FS event we get live is the cheesefest of all cheesefests

    It will have entertainment value for the fans of fs but I think it puts down the competitive ideal of fs.

    How many times can I vote for Alissa?

    Since it's just going to be a popularity/name recognition contest, no matter how anyone does, let's just book Sasha, Michelle, Johnny and Evan, and let the rest of the skaters stay at home training....

    Kurt Browing to host and....

    ...may skate an exhibition number. Now, that possibility will certainly increase the viewing numbers

    Why make anyone travel, practice and skate?? Set up a poll and be done with it, I say. Mid season in an Oly year?? I'd love to be a fly on the wall privately to know what the top tier US skaters REALLY think about this.

    Oh but then they couldn't have the equally classy Zamboni Demolition Derby for the Finale. Can't you just picture Johnny on one Zamboni..................Evan on another....... :sheesh:

    Let's hope the USFSA isn't reading this. If they are that desperate for ratings, they might go for it. Or, design a Survivor on Ice show. You get voted off of the ice. Challenges such as landing a triple axel with dull blades

    This is truly a big low for figure skating. The sports writers could have a field day on this one.

    Well, *I'm* not that desperate, but maybe the USFSA is.
