    Dunno about Sissy Krick, but I do know that the entire technical panel for the ladies is basically the same as the one from the GPF (you know, the one that downgraded Kim's 3-3 combo). I have a feeling that this isn't gonna be pretty folks.

    What? The messageboards or the Olympics?

    That downgrade was ridiculous. If they try the same crap at the Olympics, I won't begrudge the fans for going crazy on the panel.

    She voted for the Canadians Sale and Pelletiere over Berezhnaya and Sikharudlisze in 2002, so she will probably favor Patrick Chan over Evgeni Plushenko this time around.

    They are using the same tech from the GP for the ladies? I can just see the controversy now~~~~~

    But Kim's 3-3 WAS underrotated. I'm a huge Kim fan and think she will/deserves to win the OGM, but the techs have been kind to her re: rotation calls. I was happy to see that call at the GPF.

    If claiming you're a huge fan of hers validates your technical call, then let me say I'm not a huge Kim fan, and that 3/3 was not under-rotated.

    If Kim was attempting a Quadruple Toeloop as the second jump of her 3-3 then, yes, it was underrotated.

    I'm pretty sure she was just going for a Triple Toe, though. In which case it was excellent and one of the worst calls EVER by a tech specialist.

    Her 2Axel-3Toe in the LP was actually underrotated (likely because of nerves after the way she was robbed in the SP).

    Or maybe Plushy will send her a kiss while Tango and she will change her mind
