    Found my banner. Will go pouting now.

    I agree with you. He is young ? So is Patrick Chan and he gets rewarded... I am tired of protocol judging, there should be no such a thing , if someone is good, reward him.

    It bothers me a lot!!! But... that's what usually happens to No3's, does it not. They are scapegoats. Takahiko can beat both Daisuke and Nobunari in Dec in Japan Nationals though, he'll have his chance.

    Yay for Evgeny and Taka!! I want these two to go 1-2 tomorrow also in any order. I agree Kozuka's PC score is a bit low and Plushy overall a bit higher compared to Verner last week but we can't really compare scores from one competition to another, is unfair since there are different judges plus a difference of 81-82 falls between personal impression range. If we were talking about a +10 points difference then there would be a problem.

    PC's should be reduced to just 2 categories : S. Skills and Overall Artistic Impression, why bother with TR and CH when we know they are never used properly?? that way people wont get so bitter at boards complaining about them Oh and perhaps a third "Reputation" category,

    Happy for Tretiakov and Schultheiss making the final group. Personal faves of mine. Borodulin is good but too Plushy-lite for my taste, specially when he's competing with the real thing.

    Sad for Mroz..

    I think Plushenko and Kozuka has 1 and 2 locked up. Weir might be off the podium depending on how Artem skates in the free. /kozuka actually beat oda's teb pcs in the short

    I think Armodio ; Sawyer: and Mroz really need to step it up in the long program if they want a chance at Olympic birth because feds are going to be really paying attention to gps

    Watching Plushy's SP with more attention is the footwork that has let me down a bit. Its still difficult and agressive but not as passionate plus the SL sequence hardly goes with the music. All the rest is impressive for a 3 year absence.. good for him.

    Good news - Plushenko was offered Skate America. That surprises me actually, since the roster for the men at Skate America looked more like: "Let's give Evan Lysacek a huge and nearly unmissable chance to win this for the first time in his career." Plushenko is thinking about it.

    Also, it would make the GPF look a little less than a cheesefest, because till now it looks like that: no Chan, no Lambiel, no Joubert...

    Based on SP performance, Rippon also has Weir beat as for right now.
