CoP be damned, a laymen could see Patrick's flaws were more severe in Vancouver than Johnny's. And USA fans did not BUY IT.
I don't want to say Patrick looked like a "deer in the headlights" in Vancouver because such a remark would be unkind to the deer of the world.
Johnny's flip? Gimme a freakin' break. I saw many things more questionable and flat out worse in Vancouver than that. Evan's 3A combo comes to mind as did a bunch of jumps that resembled the "Leaning Tower of Pisa."
We saw Flatt had a chance to catch Rochette and she was conveniently nailed with phantom calls that took her out of medal contention.
Surprise, surprise. Not sport, but figure skating under the same ISU GANG that brought us the SLC scandal.
Now I wait for an uber CoP fan like to post the deductions in Flatt's jumps.
Helloooooo, just because the CoP makes a call does not validate it.
Other agendas, one's we are not privy to determined the outcomes in Vancouver.
For sure, a North American sweep of the Dance podium was just a part of it.
