"Hold an edge and look sexy!"
That's it exactly. Perfect example! This judging panel is playing a dirty, dirty game.

Skating is art, if you let it be.
It's not just "a few mistakes", as in maybe he double-footed a jump and had a turnout on another jump and was shaky on a spin. He made 3 major errors. Historically (and objectively), doing that in the Short Program DOES mean you might as well pack your bag and go home (in terms of realistically having a chance at a medal).

that's not the impression I got here at all, maybe I am reading something else entirely, the people here are just nasty. Aside the obvious, not a single soul has yet able to articulate their opinion or objection beyond: "there are 3 falls" yet claim to appreciate the overall package. 3 falls = -3 You need a lot more than that to make a case of judges overscoring him, which I don't know if it's the case here or not. Maybe I'll come to that conclusion as well but at this point, I don't have an answer yet.

I totally agree. The short program only has, what, three jumps, three spins, and one footwork sequence? The jumps are the most important, he fell on two, and then he fell on the all-important footwork section
