    I am sorry that I offended you sooo much. I just thought what you said sounded a bit strange - that ISU should adjust to the USFSA schedule. MY guess is that it should be other way around, it is just my opinion, that I have a right to convey. Thank you for crucifing me for that and judging me as arrogant basing on one sentence that was an opinion and a guess/question. And why so much unjustified anger towards Europeans? Sorry, but If anyone came off arrogant here, it was you..

    Why on earth was Gao passed over (5th place)? I'm guessing she declined this spot.

    Same goes for N/B...

    I think it's 'cause she's going to Jr. Worlds.

    So you're saying that the person isn't allowed to disagree with the USFSA because of the continent he/she is from? To attribute a personality attribute to someone merely by virtue of their continent origin (there was NOTHING in that post that was directly and obviously arrogant) amounts to nothing but xenophobia, making you the arrogant one for calling him/her out on a harmless comment.

    As an American, I actually have to agree that the USFSA could be better at scheduling the event. Yes, Nationals have been there for a while. Yes, 4CC is newer than US Nationals, Yes, 4CC is an awkward event during the Olympic Season. All this said, in a rapidly globalizing world, we can't ignore the world just because we've done so in the past. What the original post suggests is that US ladies skaters and ice dancers would have benefited immensely from their respective competitions being even a few days earlier, which would not interfere with this notion of traditionalism that you're striving for.

    The real problem is that NBC insisted that US nats be held over 2 weekends, so the skaters basically have to go from one competition to another with no rest at all in between. And this applies to the top men and pairs, since they had to stay in Spokane for the gala.
