    wow, not the best night in ladies skating. Mirai should have been in third..... I think Mirai deserved to win the FP personally, she was the only one who didn't fall or double most of her jumps. This is almost sad. I think Laura beat Mirai just because she's pretty....same reason Kiira Korpi got silver in China. This is NOT a beauty pageant people!

    Zhang has a lot of work to do, She gained quite some weight and height too, that certainly causes her a lot of trouble on the jumps.

    That would be just the FS alone.

    Jjoannie seemed more expressive in this performance. Shame she was not on the jumps tonight but her presentation was wonderful. Hope she skates better at olympics when she won't be the clear favourite. I missed the first group of skaters. Shame Cynthia fell apart , heartbreaking for her. She will have to be better if she hopes to make the olympic team. Love her when she is on.

    Mirai is skating to Carmen and she looks as though any music could be playing in the background. She has alot more musicality then this program shows.

    Mirai never really let go in this program. As an audience member, I got the feeling that she was only thinking about the technical stuff. She never really smiled the whole program; she didn't look into the music at all.

    Weight and height is the least of Zhang's problems. It certainly highlighted her poor skating skills and URs. If she had the skills down cold first, getting through her growth spurt was be less troublesome.

    sometimes blank triples are atleast equal to expressive doubles. More CoP unreliabilty.
    boo

    Heh. Her combined score is the season's third highest. And the top two are both Kim. Maybe they should just not award silver and bronze?

    Yeah, I think after this we can say Caroline is out. Mirai and Ashley have a shot, but I think it will be Rachael and Alissa. Also I think it's a blessing in disguise that Alissa didn't win here and go to the GPF, all that pressure before the Olympics will not help here peak at nationals, plus if she went and placed near the bottom that would not help her confidence. We'll see how Ashley does at GPF, but I think at this point Rachael and Alissa have the edge over her

    Yeah, I think so. Ladies figure skating is on its way down the toilet. I don't know if the CoP is specifically to blame, but we can't go on like this.

    The CoP does seem to be working OK for the men, though. Mainly because they are capable of fully rotating their jumps.
