If Ashley can nail her SP, she'll be another to watch out for in the LP...hope I didn't just jinx her!!
    No, Ash can come back STRONG in the LP!

    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.
    Riiiight. You know she did have the third highest technical score tonight, behind Mirai and Rachael. Can you honestly tell me that Rachael's Spin and spiral positions are superior to Sasha's? Mirai is leading, and rightfully so. Sasha is second, and I have no objection to that! Yes she had some (minor) issues but her spins and spirals and superior presentation made up for it. No one will mock you, just admit that she had a decent comeback. Your comments that she is the only one not dinged by the judges is outrageous and is certainly not credible. Proof? Oh wait, the protocol isn't even out yet. I think we have a case of an obsessed skating fan who makes outrageous statements to protect his/her fans.

    Sounds like the judging was absolutely fair.
    Geez, her posture and positions are 10 points better than Rachael.

    Have her marks been posted already? I havent seen them
    US Skating needs to concentrate on the future and fix the competitors they have. Not grab onto Sasha for some publicity for a year before she goes back to retirement because she got what she wanted. The Olympics.

    I would be fine with her getting these scores if she was clean but she wasn't. All I care about is fair judging and I am not seeing it.

    Her marks are posted NOT the total score thing.

    Feel sorry for Mirai when tomorrow's headline is Cohen in second.

    That's OK, let Sasha have all the press: less attention means less pressure on Mirai!

    Not if she has a repeat of last year's short...If she's close, she can definitely make a huge comeback, but if she's 10 points behind, will be very tough.

    Courageous effort from Em but I don't think she will contend with the top group.

    You gave me a good idea..I'll think of the worst possible scenario in these last minutes so I won't jinx her.
