    Oh no, Charlie fell! What happened?

    Wish Meryl would look at him more, judges/camera less.

    I had horror visions seeing Charlie made that mistake(remember 2008 Cup of Russia OD?) but this time he held it together. They looked a bit off today. I had the impression he was trying to catch her the entire program. This will lead but I don't know....the Canadians were better today for me

    69....

    Looks like he caught a rut, the B. Eurosport guys said. Just going flat out and it caught up to him a bit.

    That was the first thing that came to my mind too! I don't think I will ever forget the 3 falls in the OD in 2008. That was such a disaster it was almost funny. Today, he seemed kind of off throughout the whole first half, but nice comeback.

    69 is kind of high, but I did think they would be placed ahead of the Canadians. Though I have to say, I really prefer V/M's SD much more than D/W's this season.

    marks for White/Davis

    Is it only me that thinks those marks are a joke - they took a long time to recover from the slip by Charlie but beside that, the program was slppy and she was off in the swizzle section - I dont get it at all ?

    ITA I keep hoping more Latin feel will come into the programs as the season progresses ... but we are almost at GP final ... so I guess I just keep hoping.

    Anyone noticed Judge #4's marks for D/W? Three +3 and two +2 for GOE and PCS as follows: 9.50, 9.75, 9.50, 10.0, 10.0

    Looking at the scores received by W/P & others and the other judges' marks for D/W, these sets of numbers seem way out of the ballpark. I hope that judge isn't American or else this will most likely be cited for national bias and get reprimanded.

    I was surprised as well that D/W did not lose more points. Overall in this event and the men's, I was quite surprised by the lack of a home field judging advantage. Not so sure re: ladies although I haven't seen it yet.

    Q for skaters: if he "caught a rut," does that in any way reflect on his technique? It sounds like simple bad luck.

    1. I'm more annoyed by B/S' marks. They got HAMMERED on the levels - both Rhumbas were level two as was the step sequence. I thought they were gifted on the PCS, though - these guys are not 34-level skaters at all. Ridiculous.

    2. W/P screwed up the second Rhumba sequence (level two). But I will say that I'm seeing a lot more confidence from these two (Andrew in particular) and I'm glad.

    3. Both V/M and D/W are receiving the benefit of the doubt re: GOES and PCS, but those marks are definitely a little high.

    The Brits were just speculating on a possibility. I don't think luck is factored into judges' evaluation.

    Great skate for W/P ! Hope they keep it rolling for the FD..Little bit scrambly for D/W..but flukes do occur , now and then. I prefer the dress Meryl wore at SA. They may feel this one suits their music better( more modern than classic Latin ) , but the other is more flattering...this is just picking the tiniest nit, because I've never seen Meryl in a bad costume..

    Quite apart from their skating ... Because B/S's program doesn't feel very Latin to me , it really doesn't help that her costume doesn't look Latin either.

    R/T are beginning to breathe down B/S' neck . Look out next year. Like the costumes ,not really keen on the program.

    Well, considering that the score is 69, I think there's a very good possibility it's a joke.

    When you sit through the earlier programs, D/W are so superior to the others, stumble or not, that their marks are well deserved. D/W's SD seemed amazingly short, while most of the others seemed to go on and on interminably. I guess that's because the others are at half speed compared with D/W.
