I have seen the LP several times and agree with Carroll. The urs were bogus.
I only see one not three. In fact, it is easy to see Mirai had the cleaner jumps.
It is only a matter of watching as opposed to be being a blind follower of Speedy's "expert" tech caller.
Earlier this season Jenny Kirk said the same thing, and I take her word over most posters at GS. Listening to Scott call the program he only mentioned one possible ur - the last jump. Scott also said Flatt had a messy jump too. So they each had a less than stellar jump. For the rest of the jumps Mirai's were better.
Despite the fact that their pcs were a virtual tie I found Mirai superior in most of the pcs. I did not think it was a tie or even close. Far from close actually.
This is just a major and total difference of opinion. I feel OK knowing many other fans here feel the same way.
Chuck is right, it is time to get over it. I will support both Ladies in Vancouver but will naturally enjoy Mirai's skating more.
I do hope they both can skate well and enjoy their Olympic experience. I suspect Mirai will have another one in 2014 but doubt that Flatt will so I particularly hopes she enjoys it.
I admire Rachael, think she is a terrific and accomplished young lady. I am just not a fan of her skating.
