    Who will be the sacrificial lamb for the ladies

    Johnny was it for the men, Belbin and Agosto seem to be it in Ice Dancing.

    I'm confused, how is Johnny the sacrificial lamb for the men and not Joubert?

    Because Joubert went down on his own, rather than because of politicks.

    Ah, I see. My money's on Suzuki or Flatt, they always skate really well but don't always get the best scores to reflect that.

    Hopefully nobody.. but IMO, B&A should be third right now.

    Suzuki is the most vulnerable

    If it happens it'll be anyone who isn't considered the top skater from a given country as per the usual method.

    Yeah ... I really hope she does well though. But yeah, she might suffer from '3rd Japanese girl' thing that Johnny suffered from as '3rd US Man'... I would love to see that girl podium, though, even if that would be an upset. She's just so charming on the ice. Lovely to watch.

    ^^You probably mean Alena... Yeah, maybe. Mao maybe too; especially if Miki podiums. Sarah: yeah, I almost forgot her, the judges always forget her.. And yet she's such a beautiful skater.

    Oops. No ice arena. Yes, Alena from Russia.

    Is it true that two from the same country cannot be on the podium??? I heard that in Johnny's threads. But there are so many possible explanations for his scores that I can't tell.

    Sarah: yeah, I almost forgot her, the judges always forget her.. And yet she's such a beautiful skater.
    Yeah, she is beautiful. If the Finnish beauty theory is correct, she should score higher. Actually, I was gonna ask if Sarah will be competing.

    I'm very sad to say this, but I'm afraid the Ladies' sacrificial lamb will be Joannie. I know that she is going to reach deep down and pull out of herself a visually beautiful performance, but the strength required to meet the athletiic challenges for a medal will, I think, not be there for her. Still, she will get a tremendous response from her home audience, that is certain. All my heartfelt wishes and condolences go to her as she skates in tribute to her mother.

    This is just one more opinion thread. No one was sacrifised and no one will be. Just my opinion.

    How is Mao considered a probable sacrificial lamb? She has more support from JSF than Miki. If she doesn't medal, it will because she faltered not because of politics right?

    Weir was, that was clear.

    I have no idea, probably Suzuki as per the usual 3rd nonsense. We'll see.
