Oh come now. I care about all the US skaters. My only point was there is no use in throwing stones at Czisny. She is just as hurt by her poor performance this year as anyone, as frankly, the third spot she was trying to get was very probably her own. All that I said was that we have been unable to get the 3 spots; that Alissa is not solely to blame; that IMO no one had a better shot than Alissa really at getting the 3 spots (especially as USFSA made Agnes first alternate) and that IMO people should calm down. I really think you have twisted my comment beyond all recognition.i say it wasn't fair. czisny did not deserve 2nd. i have plenty of problems with a skating judging system that gives partial credit, but even by this system it wasn't fair. and nobody expects it to be fair, either--they all know the game. while i'm no mind reader, it appears to me that caroline and her coaches were surprised she managed to outscore mirai's SP.
and to mathman's comment, it clearly isn't the case that 'everyone' wants fair judging at nationals. the people with the power to make it fair have chosen not to make it so for a number of years now.
whatever. i try to refrain from spitting into the wind, as they say. i only speak up in this thread because i read an opinion (tulosai's) that so blatantly disregards every other US lady outside of czisny--disregards their present *and* future.
