    Wow, now I can see a quadless ODA going for OGM! What an amazing start of the season! That's by far my favorite men's LP of the season.
    Nice try from Tomas too. I didn't even expect he could make the podium considering his typical rusty performance early in the season. Fantastic 1st half, too bad he didn't hold it up till the end. But his day will come, and that program has great potential!
    Adam is a pleasant surprise! Who would expect he can beat Brian Joubert?! The only thing I don't like is his crossover, still looks too laboured. He used to remind me of Weir a lot, but not any more, the new Adam Rippon has surpassed Weir in many aspects.
    Poor Brian, the home rink advantage just isn't applicable to him. I hope he'll get his jumps back, as well as his confidence and have a strong comeback at NHK.
    Incredible first competition of the Olympic season, hopefully the coming up GP events will get more and more exciting.

    Schiele, cloudkicker, thank you for clearing this up - I can't wait to see Odas program! And Rippon and Verner as well!

    (Off topic: Schiele, if your nickname is for the painter - I adore him!)

    Between Takahashi 2008 4CC, Buttle 2008 Worlds , Evan 2009 Worlds, Oda performance at TEB is right up there; short and long were just amazing; good for Tomas; and fantastic for Adam; US mens Nationals is getting crowded; Old School Weir, Evan, Johnny vs New School Adam, Mroz, and Stephen Carrier(if he gets himself together) but only three spots

    Wow!!! Oda is just so amazing.
    I wonder what will happen when he hits his quad-triple combo!
    This will be a great season for him.

    How reasonable is that???

    i dont think its very reasobable either. and the thing is ( judging by the rest of the program apart from the quad attempts) he doesnt really need it. Tomas' layout is much more reasonable and Im sure Brian can pull it of. i simply dont understand why he pressures himself so much.
    I didnt like Oda yesterday but today he was really great. I think Morozov creates much better programmes for men than women. :D

    ps: Viv, yes its for Egon. He's my fav painter.

    That's a 3 quads LP. Happened 2 seasons ago at CoR, I believe. And never again since then? Besides, when was the last time Brian had a clean free?

    The new Joubert LP is actually interesting. Too bad about those mistakes. I personally do not see him medalling in Vancouver.

    Like Schiele said, the pressure he subjects himself to is way to high. I can understand him wanting to be in absolute control and maybe he wants to prove he can pull it off but.

    He could aim at an easier layout of elements that would score almost as good if properly constructed. 4S gives him so much trouble and the risks outweigh the benefits by far.

    I think we should pool some money and buy him a calculator since I honestly believe there is noone on his team who does the math.
    if joubert skates clean all he need is his quad triple in the short and a quad in the long; but I believe joubert does feel the need to be in absolute control and have a safety net because he tend to make lot of mistakes but maybe if he lower his difficulty he wouldn't make these mistakes. Maybe he should try one competitions with just on quad and see how it feels

    Good idea, since Nobu appears to have received his own calculator this season.
