    I'm referring to the UR flutz that should have been downgraded to a double flutz by the panel.

    Grr. At least the nationals judges aren't out to get Mirai like the ones at Skate Canada were! Cohen will probably get held up, but if Flatt and Nagasu do better, I think the scores will show that. I feel bad for Ashley though, if Sasha had been dinged for her mistakes in the SP and they don't ignore her problems tonight, Ashley would have a better shot at the team then it appears she has now. Still really excited though!!

    Go Mirai!

    Well everyone said Sasha needed to return to "save" US Skating

    Where are you from that the judging is so superior?

    I take it Cohen will get no favors in the LP. The judges wanted to make it close among those contenders who could do their SP clean.

    How is it Sasha's fault that Ashley fell?
    Wake up to reality for once.

    don't know why you brought her up, I've NEVER thought Kwan's emotion was anything but choreographed in a program. very one dimentional at that. very dull. Rachel gave me that same vibe... spiral and footwork good... presentation was just meh. :sheesh:

    Haha good point. I more meant that if Sasha's score had been lower like it should have been, she and Ashley would be about even instead of her being even with Rachael and Mirai. Ashley's score was pretty high too though so it doesn't really matter. Let the best lady win tonight!

    But many think Sasha should have had higher pcs - and that Rachael, Ashley and Mirai all could have been dinged a little too.

    Ashley is a very good skater and she has a chance tonight. I will be rooting for her. That doesn't mean I want other girls to mess up.

    So yes, let the Ladies show us what they have tonight.

    I think it will be a great night of skating

    Question: If a skater flutzes what is otherwise a perfect jump, they usually get - GOE. If a skater does the same flutz but falls on that jump, GOE are all -3 and a 1 point deduction is taken. If a skater does a perfect lutz takeoff, then falls, -3 GOE and 1 point deduction for the fall. So in other words, we only care if you flutz and land the jump, not flutz and fall? I thought of this from Ashely's program..she did not lose all that many points with the fall, considering she would have gotten and big "e" anyway.

    I actually agree with you, but there are a few times (mainly at Nationals) where she just came alive. Nationals was always the Kwan Love Fest after all, she had to please her customers

    Probably you should have tried to get on the judging panel for Nationals and every thing would turn out the way you would have wanted it.to turn out. From what I can gather that you want Nagasu 1st, Flatt 2nd and Ashley 3rd and Sasha should never have never entered this competition in the first place. In my opinion, Sasha is where she should be at the present time. No matter what happens in the end tonight, I hope that Sasha goes out there and gives the performance of her life. She already proved that after 4 years away from competition, that she can compete with the other girls. I wish the other skaters all the best. No matter who wins tonight and who get to go to the Olympics, doesn't mean that they are guaranteed a spot on the podium.

    Right on! But now that's Sasha is here it's fine, she is a beautiful skater. If she makes the team fair and square it'll be fine. Really wish there were 3 spots though!

    I guess... though I wasn't any more impressed with her LIVE in 2005 than I was watching her on TV... 'twas quite disappointing... so many other skaters changed my mind at that nationals... not Kwan.

    Did Sasha really just say that she's 2 pounds overweight?
