    Closing Comments for the Men's FS
    Interesting comments by the commentators. Are either of them current coaches? Just want to know how reliable their comments are.

    These are all that I can find for now.
    Thanks for the upload. I love Eurosport version the best, they are very fair and dont bias too much. Love their comment on gymnastics too.

    Sounds like Hanyu and Plushenko have a mutual admiration society going on.

    uh...because these components have MANY other considerations besides just timing and 9.0 doesn't mean it's perfect?

    Are you implying the judges chose to ignore it because they judged based on who was skating rather than what they were seeing?
    I imply no such thing. So long as no 10s or near 10s are awarded for this skate, I feel the scores are justifiable. I may not agree with them but I can see why. Judging is never black or white, so long as you can reasonably justify it, then there it's fine.

    My post was about whether Chan fully recovered from the fall or not. Your argument regarding how the judges did about it and so on has nothing to do with it.

    Hanyu's idol is Johnny Weir, or has that changed? Johnny Weir's idol is Plushenko. I think the 3 of them are made for each other.

    That may be what you think but that's not what you wrote.

    The thing you need to recall is that getting eights for PCS is actually a recent phenomenon. Stephane Lambiel's "Poeta" is a legendary program from a legendary skater, but it barely skimmed into the eights at Euros 2008. Evan Lysacek and Jeffrey Buttle won worlds without getting PCS in the eights. It's only been recently - during the Olympic season, we saw eights being used more regularly. Secondly, how often did two skaters from the same nation deserve 8+ (from the past three seasons, remember)? Really, only Japan (Kozuka and Takahashi) does, and at last year's worlds, both scored eights in the LP.

    In Russia, Hanyu was overmarked in the SP. He deserved -1 deduction (many people said so) but the panel didn't notice. That alone is enough to override the margin of 0.03 points. Hanyu and his coach were clearly surprised to see the SP score (same reaction as the FS in Nice). His "similar" SP at GPF was 3 points lower than CoR.

    That will surely change after this season.

    And some people thought he wouldn't be a strong force until 2018 Olympics, Hanyu is showing them he is not the future, but the present

    Ab, Plu I know since The Ice 2010 they spent time together, I d seen a fluff and Hanyu wears his bracelet as good luck. He also predicted him for podium. I think Weir has designed some costumes of his and he also twitted about him good luck. There is room for many idols

    I wrote "He was thenceforth chasing the music till the end when the time clock proved to everyone that he failed a full recovery from the fall." My point: Some errors have a sustaining impact. Patrick's fall was one of them.

    Don't you know PChan has his 'Minions', namely the ISU judges, protecting him 24/7??? lol
