Thanks! Unfortunate draw for ISR....They are just never gonna get a chance to skate their LP! Especially now that they are only taking the top 16 after the short...Why not 20 like the other disciplines? Argh! So frustrating!
This new rule is soooo horrible! After this draw, I think the ISR team has no chance to skate the FP :(

Well, in their defense, Euros was their second competition ever and judging by some of the practice videos I've seen, they have already definitely improved and there were many changes made to their SP...They have been together for less than a year and neither of them was a pair skater before this...So of course, I don't expect a Top 20 finish, but I'm just saying that with this draw, there isn't even a remote chance....
As far as the reduction of skaters goes...I agree that there should be SOME reduction, but I think 20 would be much more fair than 16!
