You lost me as to why you feel there would be controversy if V/M beat D/W at the GPF? It's one thing to express personal preference for a skater/team over another but to suggest people who disagree with my viewpoint is necessarily wrong as though it's a fact, that's what you are doing and puzzling to me . I have been reading some of these comments carefully but no one has yet pointed out to me in details what major flaws they saw in V/M's FD. I am in fact quite curious to know what they saw that I didn't see. I see things they need to work on and the obvious ones are upping the levels on both their step sequences but that's not a structural problem or a major flaw. As for the GPF, let's at least wait till they both qualify before starting to "speculate" the chickens. If they do qualify, any little slips in either the level or the execution could significantly affect the outcome of the actual competition. More often than not, the difference between these two come down to the TES, rather than just PCS alone. I just don't think any doomsday theory about yet another controversy in Ice Dance is warranted at this time, such speculation is not healthy for this sport at all especially when it seems it's made without any just cause.
D/W free dance is the best thing since sliced bread. And you know it!
