    Men's: Yep

    Ladies: Can go either way

    Dance: My bias overwhelms me.

    Ladies, and Dance could go either way.

    Takahashi couldn't have enough points to give him over all win. He could win LP though. Patrick is the real two time world champion. Live with it!

    Not in Dance Virtue and Moir are the superior couple i don`t see why all of sudden everyone is in love with D&W its like people have never seen a waltz in their life anyway V&M will have a dynamite program next year and defend their title at home.

    You keep saying that, SCOTT. Do you think if you keep saying the same thing over and over again it will be true, and how you skate won't become part of the equation?

    D/W are real, tough competition and if you expect to stay ahead of them you have to give 100% effort and hope D/W can manage only 99%. You gave 90% at the WTT, and you didn't win. Get over it!

    You do realize that calling him Scott is actually a compliment, right?

    What a thread

    For Men: yes
    For Ladies: no... I love Suzuki more than Kostner, but the gold belonged to Kostner at worlds. Suzuki deserved the silver though.

    Have to admit, I loved these last days.

    On another note, if little Hanyu would have been there, he might have won over Patrick too (at least the FS - his WC score is higher than Chans here). Now that would have been... a reason to fall of my chair.

    For men: I wouldn't say Dai is superior to Chan, but he certainly looks more interesting and musical.
    For ladies: Again Akiko's program is more enjoyable for me but overall Caro has more polish at this stage. But I feel Akiko still has some margin for growth, whereas I think Caro probably won't go anywhere from here.
    Dance: Believe me, I am neither American nor Canadian and I hardly watch dance. But I watched the two couples' worlds' and WTT and at worlds' I already decided the Americans (I don't even know their names!!) are much better. I know Tarasova agrees.

    ladies, no Carolina is the WC. She is more polished and did a better job at Worlds. Her FS was a thing of beauty, pure magic. She hold up quite well in the SP done much better than in Nice, but Caro had so many appearances since, so she hardly had time for practice and it showed in the FS. Here Akiko did better, the places were right. At Worlds Akiko should have been in 2nd place

    No. Each competition is a snapshot in time, and whoever wins that night is the rightful winner that night. The real world champions won in Nice. The world team champions won in Tokyo.

    Every skater, whether they are world champions or skating in their first ISI recreational competition start anew with each competition. If you win, you hold that title forever.

    No over-hyping one's favorite skaters and/or no over-protecting their skaters' comments/behaviors, no bashing on one's favarite skater's rivals and/or no over-reacting to rival skaters' comments/behaviors.

    bluedog, 'the best post of the day' for me!

    But, the problem shall be...if everyone is as civilized as you are and thinks this way, this forum gets so peaceful that some of the members here have nothing to complain about, no naysayers to snap at and may get bored.
    Now the season is finally over, we may get in a big trouble like 'how are we gonna kill the time during the offseason?'
