With all this chatter about score inflation, I've been pleasantly surprised that we didn't see that at this Nationals.
Jeremy Abbott certainly got a really high score, but I would expect so after he did 8 triples and a quad. Patrick Chan didn't do nearly that much technically and he got a similar score for his FS.
And it looks like PCS has only been a minor factor here. I think Lysacek and Weir got some reputation PCS during the FS, but it's not much higher than what Ryan Bradley or Adam Rippon got.
Any thoughts on why the U.S. judges aren't inflating scores so far?
