As with a lot of coaches in Canada, that Scarborough is the best is more damning statement of the ice dance coaching situation in Canada than praise of Scarborough. The criticism of Asher and Hill's programs is not "flimsy". It's legitimate, and IMO it's borderline offensive to dismiss the criticism as flimsy.It seems to me that you have a real issue with the Scarborough club and you're looking for any sort of flimsy excuse to bash them. All of your rants against this school smack of jealousy and an inability to acknowledge that right now, they have the best ice dancers and the best coaches in Canada.
It's also ill-advised as IMO why turn people off? Furthermore, how can any of us know what someone's opinion "smacks" of? Although they got strong (imo, inflated) scores, I thought Paul's styling (the diamond chest hair patch) was ridiculous and their performance in general tacky. I think Carol Lane and her husband did stronger work for C&P than Dean is doing for G&P.
I don't know who does the costuming at Scarborough but I never thought Vanessa Crone was costumed as well as she could have been and last year I thought Alexis Gilles was costumed like a tranny and by that I mean harsh and unflattering.
