There's a third possibility: you can be good in both.

Thanks for posting the video, Feraina. That was actually a pretty good program overall. Just by looking at the protocols I thought it must have been a disaster. Alissa is a classy skater -- I can see why she gets such high program component scores even as she loses points for technical errors on jumps.

Thanks Ferina! It indeed is a pretty decent LP. Sometimes I hope the UR punishment is too harsh, you get UR, and negative GOE, double punishment

i agree that alissa didn't skate with fire-it almost looks to me like she was dragging and willing herself to skate.
most of the time (to me ) that is how alissa skates--her spins are good fast and she does more than the requirement--to me how good a person spins (is also how long they can hold that position and be center /like alissa--because of the cop the do what 1 1/2 or 2 revolutions and than change to the next postion till they get level 3-4 without going over the revolutions and so you can see how the spin is centered with that position etc. alissa does a great job on her spins-but her nemesis has been her jumps. early in season -unless she can speed up her program/get height in her jumps -i don't see her or most of the us girls doing much.

Re Alissa- She really needed passion in the SP. The step sequence felt like it just dragged. Hopefully as the season progresses, she'll put more passion into it. I think this program has potential. I can't get into her LP. Dr. Zhivago doesn't do it for me.
Re Davis/White- hearted, hearted, hearted that LP. The lifts were amazing and I loved the speed and flow. My only criticism is that Charlie's costume is utterly unmemorable.

Isn't an unmemorable costume half the point? This is skating, not a fashion show unlike some russian and french skaters would have us believe.

Then why is she wearing a sexy red dress and not a black skirt with a simple beige T-shirt? Her outfit looks very much like fashion, like theatre.

They want to make a statement - fine, do it like Virtue / Moir who both wore the simplest costumes to their freedance last year.
