    Poor Tiffany & Alexis. I was so looking forward to seeing them skate. Hope Alexis' rehab is going ok.

    On the other hand, if Chock/Bates to attend the TEB, does that mean they got BYE at the Pacific Sectionals? (11/15-11/19)

    Joshi Helgesson will she get that spot? (instead of Hecken=W) Battle of the sisters

    Can someone tell me why Elena Glebova did not get a spot on the Grand Prix, I thought she skated well at Finlandia (but i guess she did not get the minimum score to attend a GP am I right :(

    Glebova probably just wasn't selected for a Grand Prix because of her competitive history. It was much harder to get Grand Prix assignments with only 10 ladies per event an Leonova & Kostner taking 3 spots each.

    Not sure if anyone has posted about this yet, but Joubert has withdrawn due to injury.

    I'm sad for Brian Joubert, but happy for the alternative skater who received the assignment. I am of the opinion not to waste precious little slots GP has created this season. Romain Ponsart will gain valuable experience.

    I am still bummed for the unfilled male skater slot at COC due to Brian J's last minutes withdrawal. While we cannot plan for an unexpected injury, I was so hoping for Keegan Messing to receive at least one GP assignment.

    I agree. What is the point of having substitutes if they are not in fact used? This is a sport where the athletes spend such a disproportionate amount of time training, for very few 4 minutes opportunities to show the world what they can do. It seems so short sighted (and probably driven by $/expenses) to not have fill each slot to create what could be once in a lifetime and hard earned opportunities for athletes, and by the same token, a full slate of performances for the fans who have paid to watch an event.

    If they kept the 12 spots and 2 dropped out just leave them vacant. Call the GP 10-12 slots with no replacements.
