It certainly doesnt mean anything political either. If I/K were to beat R/T at Europeans they would deserve to go to Worlds, and it would go against usual European policy if they didnt.
    Surely, but imo R/T are better and they will confirm their ranking above I/K at the Europeans. Enough of this subject on the canadian prediction thread

    Here's a link to the Europeans' prediction thread, for those who wish to discuss the chances of the Russian dance team at Europeans

    A bit OT here , (I don't see another likely thread, but didn't want to start one in case of duplication )... Skatebuzz will be livestreaming the Jrs.competitions and also the Sr. practices beginning on the 17th.

    I had heard that skatebuzz will not be geoblocked for Canadians?

    Do you know whether that is true or not, colleen, or anyone else?

    I don't think that the Skate Canada practices were geoblocked on Skatebuzz, and as I recall the Skatebug commentary was included (not really commentary so much as miscellaneous nuggets of info, some quite interesting). So senior practices and junior competition (i.e. material not broadcast on the main networks) might not be geoblocked.

    ETA: Senior competitive events will be on the main networks, so probably won't be on Skatebuzz at all, IIRC.

    I don't know for sure , but it seems to me callalily has it about right.. I'm pretty sure at least people in the US have been able to view in the past. But all of the Sr. competition will be broadcast on CBC's Bold channel, so beginning Fri. I would expect the skatebuzz coverage to be cut off.

    Another interesting point is that Jeff Buttle will be doing some of the in-house commentary etc.,so we might hear from him some of the time...

    If it's on the main networks, check out CBC's website for figure skating. If there are no rights conflicts outside of Canada, it shouldn't be geoblocked.

    A recent D&W interview on IN says that they are happy that V&M are back training, and they definitely expect to see V&M at Worlds. If V&M decide not to do nationals, the Canadian fed will come to Canton to assess their programs, when V&M are ready for that.

    Just hoping Weaver and Poje changed that LP which did not suit them and it came across boring. They are a good team who should do well in placing with the two other more popular teams so that no one has to do a quali round at Worlds.

    Of course i am anxious to see them as well, but I hope they do what is smart and not push hard for no reason. Another canadian title means very little in comparison to Tessa's health and if she is indeed pain free, they could have another month of training before the 4CC.

    They do not need to change the program in my opinion, only rework the step sequences. Those are the letdowns, level 2 won't cut it at this level.

    Looks like a gold medal pairing to me.
