He is dead right on the singles. The singles events have been a joke so far, both in terms of the quality of skating and the quality of judging. I have never seen singles skating look so hopeless. However the pairs and dance have been exciting with many bright new talents. His comments on those events are completely out of line, but on the mens and womens singles right on the money.
I agree with him. Especially for ladies the quality has gone down BIG TIME. Or maybe we just feel like that because Yuna is missing. If you think about it, if you take Yuna out of last season the rest of the ladies weren't that impressive at last GP season either.
