    Maybe Kristi should consider a comeback.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah. Skating under CoP is soooo easy, crowning champions with only 3-4 clean triples in the LP! First it's too technically exacting and demanding on the underrotation calls, but now it's all the fault of the poor ladies who just aren't as good as the 6.0 era skaters. That 6.0 sure was magical at cultivating technical and artistic talent!

    With all the hints you gave us, I have finally been able to decrypt your anagram nick name Janetfan, or should I rather say Ejan F. Tan a clear reference to your real favourite skater Evan Frank "Tan" Lysacek.

    You thought the j/v thing would confuse me, didn't you, vanetfan?


    But straight 9's across the board?

    You should know 6.0's are my idea of perfection

    Two clean programs from Tomas

    guess what--they don't follow their own rules only for the skaters they don't want up there - skate america --rachel inshort still got full levels even with the fall,
    zhang what hardly any levels.
    yes-the judges, callers pick and choose who gets what level--not accordingto the rules or is it only in ice dance that they go down a level with mistakes.
    Hmmm..... Rachel Flatt made a mistake with her spin at Skate America and as a result, it was disqualified, right? I'm not making that up. Pang and Tong, Dube and Davison also have had spins disqualifed because of mistakes. Generally, I think it matters where the mistake is.

    Absolutely. Because COP hasn't done in six years what 6.0 accomplished over a sixty year time span, and because we can name more programs in said time span that we love and love and love, COP is simply a flat out failure. Things that COP rewards (good technique on jumps, complex footwork and spins) pale in comparison to what 6.0 rewarded.

    Yeah, a medal contender that can't seem to crack 115 in the FS this year (aside from that one cheesefest in Japan).

    The Olys are in CANADA- I need not say more.

    EDIT: Scroll down below for explanation- too many folks seem to be misconstruing this statement!

    Yes, I think V/M are great, and definite medal contenders.

    ETA: Joannie is too good to remain in a funk. She will be ready for Vancouver.

    Ahh yes this should be added to the list:

    If a Canadian skater wins a medal it is ONLY because they are from Canada and the judges have all gotten together and decided that the Canadian skaters should win medals - solely based on their nationality. They never deserve their marks. ALL Canadian skaters are held up. Canada is BAD. It's all Canada's fault.

    Anything else need to be added to that??

    Yes, you have very good fishing and scenery in Canada!

    And Patrick will be ready and skating on fresh legs to go with his fresh mouth in Vancouver

    ok. try again- The Olys are in Canada. The Hometown favorite will either Rise To The Occasion or Crumble Under The Pressure.

    Sarah Hughes did the former in SLC. Kwan did the latter, and Kostner also did the latter in 2006.

    Rochette will do ??? in 2010.
