    I hope you are right - when I checked out the draw I thought NOOOO!!!

    Medusa, a big hug for you from Europe - here the SP will be televised live what means in the mid of the night. So you can imagine me sitting in front of my TV and biting my nails. I'll stay away from the chocolate at this time of the day, though.

    I am not the judge. Obviously I cannot answer your question regarding to "why". I only know what I have seen but don't know what the judges were thinking. Do you?

    3a
    3f-3t
    3lz
    1a-2t waxel..
    3s
    3lo
    3lz-2t-2lo
    2a

    With this content in LP at 4CC, he got 160.29.

    In SP in the same competition:

    3a
    3f-3t
    3lz

    He got 88.90.

    That's what I called inflated scores.

He has only done 1 clean quad all season long and that was in the LP at 4CC, and even then he finished behind a quad-less Chan. Plus, how do you know Evan won't screw up the 3Axel?, a very shaky jump for him that has a nasty tendency of getting downgraded in international competitions. As for Joubert, he is known to struggle with the 3Lutz many times, particularly at Worlds, as he has faltered on that particular element in his last 2 Worlds SP performances. All of these guys have to skate well . . . I'm not sure what makes you think these 2 have some "considerable cushion" over everyone else.
    The judges can only do what was in their power to do. If these skaters, or any skaters for that matter, majorly screwed up their skating, no matter how much the judges want to hold them up, it's still not enough. They have to skate then been judged, haven't they? The judges cannot give them markes than they skate.

    Chan did not physically rob anyone, and he certainly isn't the one to blame IF there was faulty judging. He skates his program, bows, skates off the ice, sits in the kiss and cry and leaves it up to the judges and he either accepts the score or he doesn't just like the audience.

    No one has gone "gee, I don't think I deserve that so I'll tell them to switch my score with another skater's" because it's not their job to judge, it's their job to skate.

    Can you imagine the storm that would hit if some skater DID say that!

    Thanks for the smile.

    Good luck guys!

    I'm not in the mood to check Facebook right now. I've been too depressed over the drama surrounding our beloved Fedor. He could've been out there today, melting the ice with that sexy SP of his, but instead, he's a victim of bureaucracy. :banging:

    I'll be praying to the Skate Gods day and night for that.

    Mikael Redin (SUI)

    black t-shirt and such, requiem for a dream

    3t-3t with a turn out
    3f ouch
    camel to sit to catch foot to change catch foot to upright
    tries for some choreo, but looks awkward
    circle steps
    2a hand down (or sth like that)
    straight line steps slow
    flying sit spin

    42.29 for Redin (which i found quite generous)

    Puerto Rico time!

    Andrew Huertas in red and latin-like music

    spread eagle to 2a
    3l double footed (and no second jump)
    3z and something like a half jump in the end
    step time, not something special but with some speed
    camel to nice change to sit
    circle steps, maybe a little tired?
    sit spin to change sit to catch foot
    voidy finish!

    At least he was entertaining!
