    The flip was DG and maybe the salkow also

    Tech panel practically sprayed out UR calls. It changed the rankings considerably.

    What frustrates me most about the UR calls is that they are enforced so inconsistently from event to event. I suppose it's the skaters' own fault for barely making the rotation anyway, but it would be nice if whoever the technical caller happens to be isn't outcome determinative.

    Congrats Carolina! Well-deserved for her exquisite skating.
    Elene G was simply glorious, reminded me so much of Sasha! The speed, confidence and flow. The last spin was a pity but she did amazing. I have to agree that Brian is a miracle worker. I saw her early in the season where she had difficulty jumping and I reckon she is at the end of her career. But after her second GP event I was starting to get impressed! She was simply amazing!

    Polina Korobeynikova- the top russian in Europeans. Change her SP please. She was divine! She is like the twin sister of Alissa Czisny. She will be a threat for the World title! Not much star power to her name as of the moment,but she is Russian and she is a magnificent all-around skater with the triple triples (with Volchkova as her coach) can't get any better than that! Kudos to her for placing 4th in her European debut. I thought she would medal but she should be proud of her valiant effort. She is the next big thing in the sport (height, regal demeanor-like Yu-Na), a doppelganger of Alissa, triple-triples, beautiful spins and positions, balletic style and good musicality- she's got it all!

    I agree. It shouldn't change the base marks. It should be like edge calls, marked there, and the judges dole out GOE as they see fit.

    Carolina's jump content is beyond pathetic. If she won the worlds with this....

    Can someone explain why Kiira 2nd Triple Loop was Omitted? Not like she attempted 3...?

    I agree and I am a big fan of her skating. Where are all of the people who call out Chan when he wins with a couple of falls. She is not taking any risks. No triple lutz! She is being awarded for her wonderful skating but it is a little easier to do this when you are not setting up for 2 triple lutzs and triple/triple combinations.
