    Totally. I was freaking out that Spain lost a spot in men's but then someone corrected me.

    something is very wrong within USFSA, IMO. it's been going downhill ever since 2006. i can't believe i'm saying this, but the program is in a desperate need for a Martha Karolyi of some sort!

    I was thinking that too about packaging, but I think she did sell it well- maybe she chose it/liked it?

    My only comment: I hope Hersh was watching it live.

    i feel bad for alissa, however is she done. i am not sure, but they really have to think about whether or not to push the U.S. Skaters, make them more pressure packed, to handle pressure and bad skating situations.

    the only thing i wonder is this (not an excuse) but did alissa Lose too much wait. in other words is she too thin for her height to land her jumps, ankles.
    that being stated.
    the U.s team with except of danceas a whole doesn't have the mind set to compete when things really get bad to focus on job at hand. they make excuses like adam and lutz jump in short, alissa brohaha over 4cc, it seems we are sending as a whole skaters that arent able to compete mentally. they have the tricks of the trade but not the mind set to pull it off. i think caroline zhang might be the exception-i stated might.-have to wait and see.
    i am holding off on ashley-why-she didn't try a triple/triple like the other top ten ladies in the short. once she fell out of her single jump-she gave up and skated to hang on.

    Well, for one thing, she has gained weight. The extra weight actually looks wonderful on her but....3 or 4 pounds can mean the triple becomes a double. Or a fall. Kwan, once upon a time, was thrown off by two extra pounds.

    Well, well, well, USFSA. You didn't learn your lesson from 2009 Worlds, and held up the pretty but technically deficient skater again. The skating gods decided to teach you your lesson harder this time around.

    I agree. As I said before usfsa needs and big hug and a slap in the faceat the same time. Enough!

    You know what's off? Alissa fell 5 times and officially lost 5 points in total (although there would be some goe and ur points as well, I'm sure).

    In another competition (not ladies) a skater beat another skater by, I believe, about 5 points in the PCS because some judges subjectively thought the better skater had cleaner lines, better edges, more interpretation, etc. I didn't mention any names.

    Falling 5 times=judges liking your competitors "components" better. No, this system doesn't need to be fixed.

    He certainly was. He was tweeting each and everyone of her falls...

    also due to the fact alissa bomb the short i was expecting this in the long, hoping it wouldn't happen but it did.
    so we might have only 1 lady -which is what i think the usfsa wanted-all it takes is one, but we need one that fights -not one that skates.
