    Oh for God's sake, can we stop the whining over HNIC "chacking" skating. You do realize that Victoria's in the far West and due to that, it's giving the CBC fits when it comes to showing events on the Main Network period!! Just as the same thing happened in 09 w/Worlds in LA, but people still complained the CBC should have showed the main stuff in the Eastern Time Zones in Prime Time. Gee, I didn't know the CBC had the power to speed up time, but many people seemed to think otherwise.

    I'm going to say this again, and I'm going to try and make this as easy to understand as possible...

    HNIC is the CBC Sports Dept main money maker. It's huge when it comes to revenue, ratings and sponsorship deals for the CBC. It's also live, which means if they'd decided to chack it for skating, not only would there be one heck of a howl heard across this country, but they also would have been in breach of contract w/the NHL. Believe me, they're not that stupid to do that. Not only that, but thanks to all of the Sponsorship money they get from HNIC, they use that to help pay for the contracts for their other sports coverage. Such as Figure Skating.

    I realize not everyone can access Bold or the online coverage, but this time the CBC's hands are tied thanks to the location of Cdns being in our Western most city. There's only so much they really can do and they're doing the best they can.

    Let me also remind you, we came damned close not that long ago to not having any skating coverage in Canada. We're lucky the CBC stepped up to the plate.

    What really blows my mind though is that fellow Canadians of all people are complaing about hockey taking priority over Figure Skating. Of course it will, as it's our National Sport people.

    I realized I more than likely just wasted bandwidth w/that, but thought I'd give it another go to try and bring some actual facts and common sense into this.

    Ferland's on the ice/just finished. He's got some interesting choreography (particularly love the bit from his flip to his spin), but his program is a little narcoleptic.

    Ferland

    3A, hand-down
    2 other triple jumps with hand down
    Good performance, but he abandons his program before jumps in anticipation and forces the jumps.
    2A-2A sequence
    Good edge jumper, 3loop-2t-2t combo
    113, moved into the lead

    next group on.

    ok. next group my favourite guy is on, so update will be sparse.

    Maxim-Billy, and Marc-Andre are in the group. Maxim has been knocking on the door for some time. He wasn't at Last year's Canadians, was he?

    OK, Maxim's musicality has greatly improved.

    Maxim,

    I enjoyed so much. This is first program in years where his true personality came out.

    3A, singled
    3flip-3toe, lean in both jumps, but landed.
    3sal, nice
    3sal-2t, nice
    spiral into 3flip, very difficult entry, but he landed.
    step sequence, entertaining audience, he was having fun.

    He used to land 4t, regularly in his heydays.
    111.

    Rogozine's done way too many doubles. I think he'll fall in the standings.

    First off, don't tell me or anyone that. I hate it when someone does that, as it's rather insulting.

    Second...Considering all the whining people have been doing over something like HNIC last night, which considering how many years now the CBC has had the rights to Cdns, is rather silly and stupid IMO. Especially when it's HNIC that funds the coverage.

    Then again, God forbid common sense or the actual facts about a situation come into play anymore.

    BTW, I'm also a Hockey Fan and I would *never* stoop to the whining I've seen in here if Hockey had been "chacked" for a Breaking News Story. You tell me to chill, but quite honestly, some people need to grow up.
