    The crowd liked her the best too - not that counts - but perhaps is a reflection on the pcs.

    no...carolina placement is right. but I would have flatt first and kanako second. rachel rocked the house tonight. I liked kanako but she should have been second.
    Heartbroken for carolina...but better today than tomorrow! With the jump content she has she needed a clean program! but it's only the second competition of the year and I hope she will put this behind her!

    There's really not much to think about....Rachel won the LP; had she been higher in the SP, she would have won over all. Kanako did not win "based on who the technical caller was".

    Looking at the GP standings, if I understand correctly, it will depend on the RC result. If the result is as follows:

    1. Leonova
    2. Makarova OR Suzuki - with a high score winning a tie-break with Rachael.
    3. Ando

    Then Rachael is out.. I think in all other scenarios she is in?

    NBC said Rachael has tendonitis and that is why she did not do 3Lz+ 3Lo
    For not being 100% Rachael did pretty well.

    That needs Cisny to get bronze at TEB too. If Czisny is fourth, she'd be behind Flatt.

    Rachael also left a lot of points on the table with her spin levels. I think the whole caller thing is ridiculous, as Kanako got downgrades as well.

    Rachael skated clean, but even when she skates clean, she's not exciting. She got 2 UR calls. Kanako bests her in spins, skating skills, audience connection and musicality. Kanako has charisma, and while Rachael seems like a lovely girl, she simply doesn't.

    I actually found the judging throughout the competition, not just hte ladies, to be quite fair.

    Whoa, with Kanako rising up in the ranks like this, the ladies event at Japanese Nationals is going to ruthless. I wonder who is going to be this season's Yukari?

    Exactly! Besides, Amano is known to be strick to japanese skaters also. He constantly downgraded Mao's 3 axels when it looked pretty clean. If he was trying to held japanese skaters up, I don't think he would have called Kanako's 3F underrotated in SP. Also, Takahashi and Oda both got e on the 3lutz jumps here at skate america...

    A big fat boo to Carolina's scores again. I'd have Joshi in third over her. Kostner's technical content was, quite frankly, pathetic.

    I actually preferred Rachael to Kanako this time around, and I wouldn't have minded had she won. Rachael rightfully won the LP, but I guess the jump error in the short really did her in.

    Caroline's consistency has absolutely gone out the window, but at least her flip has finally been fixed. No -GOEs and even some pluses - not bad!

    Well, I hadn't seen it yet, so I wasn't judging. I was just reflecting on the comments and the way people these days are sceptical about biased technical callers. People will always disagree about results and stuff like this just comes up. I personally have no opinion because my feeds were choppy and I didn't watch the SPs. Plus, I'm not a fan of either Rachael or Kanako, I truly couldn't care less. But I find it interesting that there's been so much controversy about the judging throughout the entire GP season so far. People not understanding the score is killing the sport.

    I think Rachael edged out Kanako on IN - Kanako was higher on the other pcs.

    Thank you.
