    Tracey says scores are inflated because of Canadian judges, I believe she said by about 10% was her guess.

    lift- beautiful, covered lots of ice, effortless
    sbs sal- jessica-severely under rotated and a fall
    pair combo spin- very well done
    throw triple loop- perfect
    death spiral- slow at end
    slss- great interpretation of music, love the music

    What?

    Shame about the fall from Jess. The rest of the program was so beautiful! She seemed mighty pissed off in the interview so I hope she gets angry at herself and lands it tomorrow!

    I don't get it. Why were Langois and Hay so great? Love them, but if Megean and Craig were as good as it sounds from the pbp, I would have put them ahead. Sorry, but Dube and Davidson don't deserve to beat them with a fall. I think the judges/ tech callers messed up this one.

    Not too good points then if she is right. The best worlds 5-6 pairs have pb around 70 or more.

    Thanks again for pbp

    i thought that megan and craig were messy at some spots...in the end, they must have been too excited. for example, the last spin, craigs leg hit megans head (not a big problem, but was visible) so little things like that really made a difference. They also only have a double twist which already puts them about 3 points behind and overall quality, dube and davison were way better except for the fall.

    Megan and Craig are rough! She touched down with her foot on the landing of the throw and it was very scratchy, they also took off at different times for their sbs jump, and she almost lost the lift - it was wild. If you watch D/D program compared with there's, there is absolutely no comparison. D/D execution of everything else made up for the fall.

    It doesn't appear to be a consistent 10% overall. L/H are about 2 points higher that at SC. D/D are 2 lower. 3 thru 7 scored a fair bit higher than there previous season bests. The rest were mostly around their seasons best. The range I had for SB's are 43.24-64.54 the range at Nats is 42.35-65.47 so I would say there is much inflation at all.

    Since some of that middle group only had scores from earlier in the season it is conceivable that they really have made improvements.
