    In almost all competitions where he was the TS, Japanese skaters have won.

    2007 JGP Estonia Ladies
    2007 NHK Men
    2008 NHK Men
    2009 WTT Ladies
    2009 JGP Poland Men
    2010 Worlds Ladies
    Uh huh; so you're insinuating that someone else should have won instead at these competitions?

    No, I'm saying Amano is a sort of mascot for JPN skaters. He's also known for strict calls, which won't help likes of Flatt.

    Anyway, in the case of 2007 NHK men, Verner could be the winner, if he didn't overlook Takahashi's under-rotated quad (fall).

    Well if those skaters deserved to win, would it matter is he was a "mascot for JPN skaters"?

    Then strict calling shouldn't help the likes of Murakami either, who has a fairly egregious flutz and also her share of underrotations. Unless you are saying that he will be strict on technical calls for non-Japanese skaters, but ignore faults of Japanese skaters?
