    Way too much. It's totally ridiculous. Dark days of quadlessness could loom with with scores like that.

    Davis and White, Virtue and Moir got 9.5, 9.6 etc.. on their component scores for PE, IN, CH.
    Dai definitely was lowballed here. How did this performance have any less impact compare to these two teams. His PE,IN,CH are 9 and below. Goodness. Should be 10.

    Dai is the best male artist on the planet and he deserves those huge PCS!

    OK, so the judges went a little GOE happy, but personally I think Dai's PCS should be even higher. I'll take that performance over all the quads in the world any day.

    How strange, I see it differently. I thought it was a testimony to the old saying: "It's a skating competition, not jumping."

    So would skaters and that's why quads started to vanish!! Only 3 points lower from Chan at 2011 worlds!

    Per Mrs. P tradition (can I call it that?) the protocal breakdown:

    Jumps:
    Konstantin: 31.56
    Daisuke: 29.04
    Brandon: 27.96
    Tatsuki: 27.34
    Taka: 25.27
    Ross: 24.27
    Tomas: 22.21
    Armin: 20.30
    Samuel: 16.60

    Non-Jump Elements:
    Daisuke: 17.10
    Taka: 15.61
    Ross: 14.60
    Konstantin: 13.68
    Samuel: 13.62
    Armin: 13.30
    Brandon: 12.80
    Tatsuki: 11.39 (obviously zero points for the spin)
    Tomas: 6.89

    Takahashi and Kozuka have almost identical BV (0.1 difference) but Takahashi received massive GOE, scoring over 5 points in both TES and PCS over Kozuka.

    Mroz has the highest BV but his TES is actually lower than Menshov but a higher PCS put him just 0.16 total over Menshov. Methinks Menshov wuzrobbed.

    Don't open that can of worms with gmeyers. It's a battle not worth fighting. Trust me.

    Well I don't want to get too worried about it because it is Takahashi in Japan but skating like that shouldn't make jump regression ok or insanely inflated scores ok.

    and? I'm already looking forward to seeing this program again on youtube and on TV tomorrow. I haven't seen Chan's SP at 2011 world since 2011 world.

    I'm probably going to sit through it once more but not again because the score is insane!
