    well, that's up to the judges to decide. I personally think Takahashi is much more artistic than Patrick but the judges don't agree with me so..

    Jason needs to compete with 15 year old Han Yan (who was very sick at JGPF) and even 14 year old Boyang Jin, both of whom already have 3As and quads and wonderful skating skills. Of course 17 year old Hanyu of Japan is waiting for them at the Senior rank.

I'll still be a fan and enjoy his skating, though unfortunately there'll likely be less of it to see in that case.

    On the other hand, Jason has vastly superior basic technique to most skaters, including Adam Rippon. He's picked up so many difficult and innovative moves in skating already. I remain hopeful he'll pick this up, too.
    To state that anyone "will never" is vastly presumptious, in my opinion. OTOH, to say "I think Jason might have trouble developing a quad or a 3-axel, if he doesn't have one now." Well, that's a fan opinion. But to talk about having "a feeling" -- what, why, how? I think if someone states they have "a feeling" such as that a young skater "will never" that is not "valid" unless they can back it up. It is perfectly valid to ask ks777 what his/her "feeling" is based on.

    I agree with you SeriousBusiness that I am "hopeful" Jason will develop both difficult jumps. And I don't claim to know for sure either way, much less have a definitive "feeling."

    Max Aaron, what a messy skate from a messy skater. Zero musicality. Horrible posture. Yuck.

    Poor Max, but with him I just feel he's going to come back stronger every year, his whole family is into skating and they're all doing exceptionally well, so he has a lot of support.

    On a sad note, my sister just doesn't like skating, isn't watching any more, I did appreciate those ones that she deigned to watch though, lol. :D

    Based on the fact that he doesn't have a 3 axel nor a quad at the age of 17?

    I have no idea if Jason will get the 3 axel or not or a quad or not; I think the Hersh article gave the impression that jason was struggling with the 3 axel and that he was quoted or it implied he said (I forget which) that he was frustrated with it. That said, he is an excellent skater and only he, his team, and close observers really know what is going on.

    He was amazing at junior GPF and I'm already looking forward to what he brings next year because he is such an interesting skater and performer.

    Ok...go Ross!

    I haven't really seem much of Ross Miner, and I thought it was Jeremy Abbott

    My joy & excitement has evaporated with the whole competition now; my sister doesn't mean to offend but her apathy has affected me now. Here's hoping the last ones do great, especially Jeremy Abbott.

    They do look a little bit alike. Glad I'm not the only one who thought so! I didn't remember the skating order and I've been in and out, and I thought it was Abbott for a moment, too.

    Well, they did in that moment, look alike. Not so much in the K&C.

    Max Aaron and Ross Miner basically put me to sleep. Two soporific programs.
