    Nice to hear you thought it was good attempt! Maybe he'll win you over yet!

    So did Alissa do a free skate? I'm guessing not, since I can't find any information about it anywhere. Loved the short, but not perfection.

    and two demensional URs They are in the eye of the beholder. Whatever the Caller says is the last word.

    One should also remember that these comps are all tests for the coming season.

    Check on SylviaUnSeen@twitter.com

    You have to sort through a bunch of posts about random competitions, but it is likely in there. Or join twitter and tweet to Sylvia and see whether she replies. If this sort of info is public, Sylvia usually has it.

    i wasn't there so i wouldn't know, however, what i seen on you tube was a very bad attempt. only 2 twice did he go around maybe 3, but definitly not four.
    like i said before and you are stating now, people, and judges are seeing what they want to see (on paper) not really paying attention to what the skater is Excatly doing.

    how can one tell anything on an amatuer video, though? no offense to those that took and shared these vids with us, I appreciate and love seeing them! but still??? it's not like we can slow mo it and zoom in and get a good quality looksee.

    to whoever stated that i couldn't see on youtube--
    the ur's is .. That is can --why I specifically look at their feet and ignore the movement on top--it isn't hard. probably at the rink you notice the movement on top more than the feet.
    i didn't slow-mo it or anything --i watch the feet-not the top. it is hard--but you would be suprised at what you really can see -.

    thank you for your opinion. i strongly disagree.

    Sorry, I'm behind the curve. Who is Fedor skating for this season? I know Skate Canada wouldn't release him for Worlds but don't know the current status.

    Kinda hard to tell in the vids- but looked like he landed a couple of solid 3 axels. Good start to season.

    He represented Azerbaijan at Skate Detroit, so I assume this means his break-up with Skate Canada is final.

    How do you "know" this for certain? In the spring, I tried to determine why Andreev couldn't compete in LA, but I received contradicting answers (even from within the same organization!) from different official sources. The more I investigated the matter, the more confusing it got!

    Yes, he did indeed land at least one clean 3-Axel in each program (although the second one in his LP may have been doubled---I'm not 100% sure). He'd be hard-pressed to earn a score close to 210 without that jump.

    Thank you for the video!!

    so did she do the LP? or did she withdraw?

    I look forward to watching Taylor's & Castille & Okolski's programs as well

    Czisny's 3flip looked UR to me as well, but the Lutz appeared fully rotated to my eyes. Then again, it's not the best quality video and there was no slow motion replay as there will be in later, more important competitions. I thought her score was VERY generous. I would have scored it about a 55.60. Then again, this is a practice fluff competition and Alissa was the only semi-big name skater present in her group . . . inflation is to be expected under such circumstances.

    There wasn't any footwork going into the flip, so that should have been a deduction. Alissa was also agonizingly slow.

    I agree that Alissa was scored 8-10 points more than she should have been. IMO she got extra points because she is the reigning National Champion, and is the 'star' local skater (she is from neighboring state Ohio, and in the past has been the star skater at Mids Sectionals).

    siberia82, actually I don't "know" for sure that Skate Canada wouldn't release him- that was just the rumor at Worlds. Apparently since then, SC and the ISU have both denied accountability.

    Whatever the reason, still unfortunate that he wasn't allowed to skate. I did see him a few times at Staples so he did seem to have stay around all week.

    Hope the issues are resolved and he can compete this season. I assume AZE doesn't rate any GP assignments, so perhaps he'll do some of the early competitions (like Finlandia)--- he certainly seems ready. Otherwise Europeans might be his first competition?
