How did a Kim-less 4CC do in Korea, crowd wise?
How about Four Continents in Alaska? Might solve some of the travel problems for the East Asian vs. North American skaters. Not so good for Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, though.

Well, for the 2010 4CC, it was a rather small (from my perspective) arena, and it was pretty filled. However, for the 2008 4CC or the GPF other than the Senior Ladies' competition, it wasn't very filled. I remember Aunt Joyce talking about the 2009 Skate America competition and commenting on how he found it odd that many of the Yu Na fans, despite having tickets for all the different competitions, only attended the ladies competition and didn't go to the rest

Strategically for the long term the ISU absolutely wants to be here. The crowds will come with time (or at least that's probably what the ISU is thinking, and if so I think they're correct).

It's pretty clear where the ISU is focusing on.
Moving it to Italy sounds good to me.
I love you, Jeremy!
yep. With Kostner, Contesti, Faiella or Cappellini, people would come and cheer a lot. Btw Milano will host a JGP from next year.
