it's also laughable that people would just blindly believe that at the very last minute this whole thing was pulled. they had to have had at least a few hours notice, and it's not THAT hard to update a dang website/schedule. (it's also hard to believe some posts when it's known that they are one of the street crew types... I'm just saying)
and considering other weird ideas the USFSA has had with the people it supposedly wants to keep in the seats it would not surprise me.

Bobrova/Soloviev hold second place behind the Kerrs and ahead of Crone/Poirier. I'm glad- I think they usually have beautiful CDs with their long leg lines and clean movement.
Crone/Poirier while fresh and young and very athletic don't have nearly enough polish yet.

Kerrs move into first place. Go D/W!!!!!
As rightly pointed out by another poster, the fact that the Japanese did this last year should have been ample warning to the IN schedulers to check their facts BEFORE posted a schedule to customers. In addition, they should have made their caveats about schedule changes clearer to give increased warning of this type of situation.
The middle man bears as much responsibility for the quality of service as the supplier, perhaps more given that we are paying them and not the Japanese broadcasters.
1 Meryl DAVIS / Charlie WHITE USA 38.09
It may not be that they lied per se, it could be that they were just too lazy to take steps to notify their subscribers of the change. Either way, it's no excuse for providing a service at such low quality, when they're charging users!
Being successful in business means providing customers with the quality they paid for!
Meryl DAVIS / Charlie WHITE USA
Great start for Meryl and Charlie. I only wish we had been able to watch them skate!!
IN had better get their ducks in a row so that this does not happen next year!
Meryl and Charlie scored higher than in Russia: 38.09 to 37.87
so if I did the math right pairs should be on in 5 minutes? or did they get chacked at the last minute, too?

yeah it popped up for me right after I posted... good thing too
