    Most ridiculously overscored program so far in Turino?

    I am sure we all know who have been getting the most inflated scores so far. I thought it would be fun to have a poll which of those performances has been the most overscored of all so far though. Choices down below.....

    We are running neck and neck so far. Plushy and Evan are both very worthy of their votes so far.

    I would say it's a virtual tie between Zhang/Zhang, Lysacek, and now, Fusar-Poli/Margaglio.............unbelievable really, the judging that is, not the skates unfortuately...........:frown2: My vote went to Lysacek though!

    So far I would say it's been Fusar-Poli/Margaglio's compulsory dance.

    I had to go with Obertas and Slavnov's long in the pairs event. While I thought Plushenko was indeed overmarked, I felt he was more egregiously overmarked in the long than the short, but at least he ended up in the right place in the standings. Obertas and Slavnov got a huge gift for a sloppy, ugly, mistake-filled program. I don't think they did a single element clean in their long and they still ended in the top 10 ahead of other much more deserving teams. It was appalling.
    Zhang/Zhang were also overmarked - bravery points that put them in silver, which they did not deserve. I didn't think Lysecek was overmarked at all. I'll now have to add dancers F-P and M to the list.

    OK, I'll try to be objective
    1. FP/M CD
    2. Zhan/Zhang LP (as much as I admire her courage)
    3. Buttle's (as much as I loved it )
    4. Plushenko's LP

    And I really don't think Lysacek's LP was overscored at all ...

    Uhhh, there were so many! But nothing can top this one:
    F/P-M 1st place in the Compulsory Dance!!! What were the judges thinking? (Or were they afraid of Bab's Killer look, like she demonstrated it after the OD towards Margaglio )

    After that honourable mentions to Zhangs, Obertas/Slavnov, Buttle and Lysacek.

    Why has this board attracted such a spate of ill-tempered posts all of a sudden?
