This type of judging just cements the further demise of figure skating. The general public doesn't understand it and neither do the majority of skating fans and skating commentators. It's quite sad.
About the judge that gave Takahashi a 5.50 in transitions, he must have got the Joe Inman memo. At least he came up to 6.75 for choreography. Now if Takahashi can just make better use of the music he might come up to a 7.0.
Speaking of music, Javier's was the best. Anyone who skates to "Ta-rah-rah-BOOM-de-ay" has got my vote -- if only for the reason that it rhymes with "Sweet sugar FU-mi-e!" (my fave of time gone by. )
True, true. And except for the mistakes the Detroit Lions beat the New Orleans Saints last week in football.Originally Posted by Serious Business
Edited to add}: I hate this autocorrect feature that changes "Inman" to "Unman" and "have" to "have" without me knowing it. How do I turn this feature off?
See? There it goes again. I meant, changes "fave" to "have."

What was your favourite moment?
Did the placements pan out the way you hoped/predicted?
Who did you think should have won?
... now I'm going to go back outside and continue painting a portrait of Dai on my rink and reminice on that gorgeous program
I never understood PCS. Never will. We might as well abolish PCS, bring back the artistic presentation section, and a completely separate Compulsory type session to judge skating skills.
scandalous judging again.
Oh, it was something else, that's for sure.
Some of you guys are so biased. One only deserve to when if like there style and they are the cleanest. For the basic principle of COP has be the same since the beginning. Who ever does the most and earn the most points when. No matter how many mistakes. Patrick did two quads, tripla axel and triple triple, Once again difficulty wins- No else did more tonight. As soon as people can get over the chip of spotless programs on their shoulder understand when people are pushing their limits they won't be perfect they can start enjoying the program and stop hating on people who are being rewarded for pushin the limits of what they can do.
