Any interest in a GS training thread re scoring?
I know lots of folks here are not IJS experts -from the withering comments those who are very CoP knowledgeable give when someone makes a statement that isn't correct and out come the stats etc. LOL. So if there is any interest in this, maybe GS -Paula and Mods like Doris and Mathman who seem quite up to date on scoring will do something formal. Maybe there is no need for it and I am the one behind. Maybe in the off season there will be some time and interest. I know Doris did some of this with dance. I watch the top dancers who seem equal-the programs are what does it for me- but am more interested in singles and then pairs.
If there are any scoring controversies from Worlds- that'd be a place to start. I have seen Chan's LP, saw him fall, mess up a 3x3- lose his momentum on a camel spin, I think, I heard Joubert was clean, I have not really seen the others. Is this the usual Patrick killed Daisuke on PCS? I will eventually watch these skates. I do not understand why Ashley did not get a season's best with her skate, and I think she is so much better than Leonova. Did they pre-select Caro Leonova and Akiko? I can see Mao would have been preferred if she skated well, but she made multiple errors. It doesn't seem it was planned to be a podium for Ashley. I think all three did well, but Ashley seemed to be underscored and the ladies in general were I think underscored.
I saw Ashley maybe two foot one jump, otherwise, she was clean to my untrained eye? saw nothing else but I don't watch her to count rotations or pick up a wrong edge. I'm not that astute at one watch. Skaters see this stuff immediately. So I have some questioons about Patrick and the men, as usual, and wonder what happened that Ashley seems to me underscored? Any response to idea of thread apprecxiated. If none, I'll assume them that know are satisfied, and others are more casual watchers who aren't into the scoring. Thanks so much anyone/everyone!
