I wouldn't mind it so much if Yuna does a 3l instead of 2axel-2toe loop-2loop. I would just like the jump scores to reflect the difficulty of the jumps more.
I wouldn't mind it if GOEs didn't seem so subjectively given. Regarding GOEs, if comparing Yuna and Mao's short, I don't see such a huge problem, but if you compare how some of the other short programs, e.g., Elena's, were scored, GOEs are clearly subjective.

Trying to get rid of 2/2 combos, then maybe my counter sugestion would be to ban 3/2s and only allow 3/3s or 2/3s where would that leave Mao?
It is stupid, i repeat STUPID to keep trying to pretend that you are making serious rule change proposals when you are arbitrarily proposing rules changes just because you want Mao to be winning.
The whole thing is nearly as STUPID as I am for bothering with this thread...why oh why don't i learn.
I've set my own homework - writing lines "I must update my ignore list, I must update my ignore list, i must..."
I don't like the triple-double-double (or 2A-double-double) combinations very much either, but for a different reason. By the time the skater gets to the third jump she has typically come to a complete standstill on the ice, then tries to muscle the last double up somehow or other. It does not work very well within the flow of the choreography.
Almost any kind of combo is "allowed" in the free skate. You can do a single toe/single toe combo, if that is all you can do. You will get the base values for the jumps that you do.Double-double combos should not be allowed.
We have to remember that the IJS must serve for competitions at every level, starting with beginner.
Conversely, no skater is "required" to do any particular jump. Each skater does what she can and earns the points for what she does.

Wow. This is a total catfight in here. Anyways, I think those who oppose rule changes saying that those who favor rule changes simply want their favorite skaters to win is just being hypocritical because obviously for some posters who oppose it they think rule changes will negatively affect their favorite skater. It's the exact same intention. :sheesh:
