T/B . De-e-ep trouble.I don't think the judges at their nationals would now give them anything extra on rep, and D/W's programs are superior, I think. So unless the T/B camp have really just been slogging away at the drawing board, it doesn't look good for them. The good part is that D/W can probably count on being given credit for what they do .
It may be rude to make reference to Linichuk's machinations, but she has that reputation for a reason. And while I think the CoP has made an improvement , it hasn't made off ice influence impossible.
Look at last year's world's ...3&4 should have been 1&2 ( in some order - 'Salome' being a work of genius for D/W and beautifully skated)..1&2 should probably have been 3&4, certainly not better. It wasn't V/M who robbed D/W.... Yes, Virginia , there are flukes, but that podium wasn't one of them.
