    There are two ignore buttons seniorita. One for annoying people - and another special one that automatically blocks all Plushy comments.
    Which one did you want to use

    Hmm. Really good. But posture-wise - this is also great.

    Yes, Laura is a lovely skater. Dorothy had the best posture in her era. For me Sasha has lovely posture too.

    "Ballooned". Joannie is just, um, built. My issue with Rochette's arms is that they're...stiff. She has good posture, as do Michelle and Laura, but her arms don't move as fluidly and naturally as Michelle's. Laura has this problem, too. It's like they're holding a big beach ball.

    That's exactly it - you've hit the nail on the head for me about Joannie, it's her arms that are stiff, if she jsut softened them slightly she'd look much better. The stiffness in her arms gives her skating a look as if she's concentrating really hard ont eh chreography rather than just losing herself in it.

    Keep this quiet - but Dorothy won US Natls, OGM and WC in 1976 skating to "film music." She skated to excerpts from several scores written by legendary film score composer Max Steiner.
    BTW, as a young boy growing up in Vienna Max Steiner took piano lessons with Brahms. Later he studied composition and theory with Mahler. Imagine their disappointment if they could have seen what became of him.

    You are right, both Rochette and Lepistö have relatively stiff arms. But I still prefer Lepistö, she is charming and Rochette isn't (just my opinion of course).

    Just read that Real Madrid offers 94 Million Euros (130 Million $) for C. Ronaldo? Holy moly!

    No offence taken. I just thought "ballooned" was a hilarious way of saying that Joannie's got arms that make Johnny's look like a nymph's.

    During Worlds Button commented that "Joannie has no idea how good she really is." I think he meant she needs to relax, and offer more of herself to the audience. I like her alot - but she is not one of my favorites.

    I remember Sandra saying the same thing about her back in 2006. I didn't know what Sadra meant, but your interpretation makes sense. Her potential really materialized this past season, so maybe she will be able to relax.

    Now, in her all-time best performance (over 200 points at the 2009 World team trophy) she did 3A, 3A+2T, 3F+2Lo+2Lo, 3Lo, 3F+2Lo, 3T, 2A. No Slachow and no Lutz. (She tried a Lutz in the SP at Worlds but popped it.) Her SP at WTT was 3A+2T, 3F, 2A.

    So out of ten jumping passes she did 5 Axels and 3 flips. Who can blame her? That's how to score 200 points in the CoP.
    With layouts like that, how am I supposed to know which jumps she has and which ones she doesn't? As far as I am concerned, if she is tinkering around with her jump layouts rather than sticking in one of each jump, she is working around a weakness and does NOT have all of the jumps.

    IMO Mao lands the triple axel enough that she can say that she "has" the jump. Of course, I have seen numerous scary falls from her on that jump- including that waxel from a few years ago where she landed on her back.
