    I chose Ryan

    but to be honest the skaters all pretty much robbed themselves of the chance to make the team... or place higher or whatever...

    except for Mirai who skated well, just didn't get the rotations

    I don't think anyone was robbed.

    But...I liked Navarro and Bommentre' free dance a lot. However, Susie Wynn (or was it tracey Wilson) did a good job of explaining why I should have liked Samuelson and Bates better.

    Bebe Liang was scored fairly, but I was so happy for her for her free skate!

    I voted for Ryan Bradley - he easily had the best mens free skate and deserved a spot on the Olympic team.
    I think Belbin and Agosto are close behind, but not as much.
    As for Sasha Cohen, this is a difficult one for me - I've been a fan of Sasha's since her 2000 short program in my hometown of Cleveland, but at this point, I feel like she's had her chance and it's time for the new blood to step up.

    I don't believe anyone was robbed, but I did prefer B&A over D&W... it was a more modern and technical program - and it screamed OGM. D & W were awesome, but I felt like I'd seen that program a thousand times before. And to Phantom of the Opera! Seriously? Please.

    But I hate that music and don't really understand Ice Dance and its technical elements outside of twizzles...

    Personally I wouldn't consider Nagasu robbed since she still gets to go to Vancouver, but I could see why some would say that.

    Inoue and Baldwin not going is a travesty.. I watched Evora and Ladwig again, and I can't believe they came second over I&B... I know I&B skated pretty slowly, but still, E&L botched one of the SBS jumps and she fell on the 3L!!

    ...

    Oh yeah, and while I LIKED Navarro and Bommentre's FS better than Samuelson and Bates', I have to admit S&Bs was technically better.

    In any case, no way was Sasha robbed. Her LP was just ....

    But at least we have her SP to remember. And yes, her 2000 SP was divine.

    I voted for Mirai Nagasu. I've watched her LP three times and admittedly don't see where the jumps were under-rotated.Her program was wonderful and by the results of the poll I just utilized, the majority feel she didn't get the marks she deserved. At any rate, they will all have their hands full with Mao Asada and Yu-Na Kim. What a spectacular ladies event that will be at the Olympics and Worlds. I can't wait!

    I didn't vote because I felt that the judging was pretty much spot on.

    I didn't expect to see this poll be bumped in May!! I feel Sasha was great in the short-first place worthy.

    Yes, Sasha has always been a wonderful sp skater. If only she had managed to perform faultlessly in her freeskates.... Anyway, I have always enjoyed watching her performances and feel really fortunate for having seen her competing in 2001 Finlandia Trophy. The audience did not know her, but after her sp the arena was full of enthusiastic people.

    Can't believe I'm saying this, but I/B if I had to choose.
