    I am dreading the YouTube videos of this, and the thought of the long programs scares the stuffings out of me.
    Maybe it's gonna happen like 2011 GPF. Mediocre SPs and gorgeous LPs(particularly Daisuke, Yuzuru and Javier were ON at the GPF)

Joubert has a weak LP with a COP unfriendly jump layout and elements, even with a good skate and even home court inflation cant save him.
    I'm not so sure about this.

    If Takahashi isn't on par technically in LP, there is a chance that he could finish off the podium. Same to Brezina. I'm not so worried about Chan because he usually has strong technical content in LP, and could extend the gap between him and the next skater further. Joubert or Fernandez has a great chance to be on the podium.

    Well I still don't get it because I don't see superstar when NM's students skate with that awful choreography but I guess what matters is that the judges seem to see the illusion...lol

    No, not pleased at all. Doubled and singled jumps are more penalized in COP than a fall on a rotated triple or quad, and we saw a lot of popping today, sadly.
    But the boisterous outrage and calls for the head have been about the unforgivable falls.

    I always say be careful what you wish for. Karma has a wicked sense of humour.

    How in the world is Amodio fifth?
    The more pertinent question is where in the world, not how.

    Oh for gods sake, he rightly deserves to be in first.

    Can't get over how wrong this short went for certain skaters...

    Well I'm happy I was introduced to Kim Lucine at least. Off to watch his short again.

    Looks like russia doesn't want to send Gachinski to Worlds next year, with one spot only, it will be Plushenko.

    Based solely on the descriptions and not having seen video of anyone, there's no question Patrick did deserve his placement today. I'll have to see videos and protocols to determine if he deserved his actual scores in my opinion.
