Well, as always, I learned stuff from this thread I'd forgotten. Actually, for these four skaters, they got more attention than they ever would have and great pro careers. Everyone remembers them. So, though I feel B/S were artistically awesome, the big losers were the skaters who have to deal with CoP. And all the fans who don't understand at all why someone so superior loses due to slight jump UR's. I don't think we've seen the most inspiring competitions under CoP. I don't want to point out any particular skaters/winners to avoid offending anyone.
Is it more honest now? I don't know. I have to laugh at the comment regarding Kerrigan/Baiul. Sorry if this is such a dead horse for the long time regular regulars.
