    I can't believe I got up this early to watch GPF.... ugh.

    Anyway.... I think her 3T was downgraded........... sigh.
    First, her perfect 3F that used to get +2 GOE got edge calls, and
    now they are attacking her 3T.

    I don't know... if Kim's 3T should be downgraded, then show me a better 3T.

    Her triple toe looks UR'ed in opening combo - I guess she get close enough on it.

    Well, Yuna made a mistake and she was left with two triple jumps in the programme. How much did you want her to score? Objectively speaking, 65 points is a very good score. Had she scored something about 70, it would be not fair.
    Triple jump after steps is one of required elements in the short programme and judges had to punish her for poping her flip.
    I think that is an answer to anyone who thinks Yuna is overscored. When she is perfect she is being deservedly rewarded, when she makes a mistake she is being scored accordingly to that mistake, too.

    I am so happy for Alena. I hope she is not too excited about being in the third, so she can skate well tomorrow and hang on to the bronze. She would be so happy to get bronze!

    I agree that it looked a bit short, not sure if enough to get downgraded.
    I also think she lacked the spark that she had earlier this year. I thought Miki was better on the day.

    Jane, I am really honestly curious. Is there anyone out there
    who can do better 3-3- than Yuna? Serious watching this depresses me
    because some skaters don't even get edge/UR calls when
    it is SO apparent, and then there's Yuna......

    I can't really comment on how others did because I watched GPF over the internet and the connection just SUCKED. ugh!!! I watched 20 sec of Akiko, and 10 sec of Miki.

    Yep, I also think it was the 2A for Ashley.. The slow mo showed obvious UR...
    Wow, Yuna got a DG on 3t? I guess it looked a bit tight but still.. I want to see more risk takers, which is now virtually impossible with these URs all over the place.. Joannie must have gotten some call too to score so low on TS..
    Well, it all worked in favour of Alena!

    Ok...

    Rochette was def not on tonight...squeaked through that program..but still there is alot of quality there..

    Kim was good other than the pop on her 3 flip.

    Ando was good and was fast...but choreographically not very good.

    Leonova???? i cant believe she got 61! She was a mess. Yes i agree i love her smile and she has loads of charming energy...but does that really mean high pcs marks? almost as high as rochette? And she did have a slipout of her 3 jump.

    Wagner...loads of potential but strange jump tech.

    And Suzuki was charming...too bad about her ur.

    Ah, so happy for Leonova!!!!
    Yes, she could have better lines and stretch, be more polished, etc...
    I'll still take her over the vast majority of the "elegant" skaters anyday. She has that IT factor.
    (I am tasteless and I am not afraid to admit it!)

    Yuna has best 3x3 but that doesn't mean she gets full credit automatically.
    I could see how much her blade rotated on the ice to finish the jump.

    If they call the other girls they have to call Yuna too.

    I thought her score was fair. It is a good score and she did not skate her best

    Saying that Yu-Na's 3T looked underrotated would rank up there as one of the most inane things I have ever heard (no offense....).

    It was a gorgeous, perfect 3Lutz-3Toe combination.

    BETTER than Lysacek's, Weir's, and Oda's. None of whom were downgraded.

    Today's tech specialist was the one who gave Yuna the one and only wrong edge call on 3F last season. Nuf said.
    IMO the edge call was BS and today's DG is the same BS.

    I just hope media leave her alone between now and her LP.

    Watching a Live stream is tough. Waking up and being sleepy doen't' help
    Did she get a call on the 3T or not?
