    Agreed, Rachael is a pretty consistent LP skater and let's not forget, beat Yuna recently at SA in that segment. Mirai is next and Sasha could be terrific...or otherwise.

    I know people hate Rachael but I think she deserved 1st or 2nd tonight and I feel bad defending her because I am usually not doing that at all.lol
    I dont hate Rachael. I like her and think she is a swell girl. I am not wild about aspects of her skating is all. I admire what a poised skater she can be

    Who's fault is it that it was her first competition in 4 years? Wasn't mine.

    She wasn't perfect and I am sorry if I am sick of her being held by the judges because she can wrap her leg around her head. Sasha makes mistakes and is the only one not dinged by the judges. It was old 4 years ago. Now it is just downright insulting to the sport.

    Yes, Ashley- bring it!! The pressure is on her though because if she's not within striking distance of our three musketeers, she's out :(

    P.S. Tara is really annoying, from the very beginning, and in every competition that she has commented on thus far for IN. I hope they fire her. Seriously.

    Her voice is the worst of every single commentator, I hate commentators in general, as I like silence (except for the skater's music) when I watch.

    ICENETWORK, HIRE TONIA KWIATKOWSKI FOR EVERY COMMENTATING JOB, PLEASE!!!!

    Let's see what the protocols say when they come out. I tend to agree with you that in the past, Sasha has received more benefits-of-doubt from the judges than a lot of skaters.

    I appreciate Rachael more in the LP where her strengths really come through-consistency is a big deal and she does have great jumps-so rare to see 7 triples these days, especially with a difficult 3f/3t combo included. I just wish she had some more speed, I can overlook her not very flexy positions, not such big deal for me. If Ashley can nail her SP, she'll be another to watch out for in the LP...hope I didn't just jinx her!!

    Agreed. Who knows what Sasha will do, but I don't love Mirai's LP.

    Is it Sasha's fault US Skating is desperate for a star?

    Have her marks been posted already? I havent seen them

    Like it or not, Sasha is a special skater. She has qualities that are so far above the other skaters. If she had skated perfectly, she should probably be at least 7 or 8 points above any of the other girls. She's that good.

    Sounds like the judging was absolutely fair.

    How do you know this, have you seen the protocols? Sasha racks up points on her non-jumping elements, which is why she scores so high.

    Mirai is an SP skater. She must rotate those jumps in the FS though, or she's easily toast. But if she can get past that? She could win this competition.
