    When it comes to him, the only opinion that matters is his own, regardless of what anyone else thinks.


    How can someone actually choose between D/W & V/M? They are both so strong at what they are doing, and both teams have individual strengths, that it can really go either way. Takahashi doesn't stand a chance against Chan, because technically Chan is far better. Geez, Takahashi even lost the lp to Hanyu at worlds, so there really is no dispute there as to who the real champion is, which is Chan. At WTT, Takahashi was the best though, but that mainly comes from the fact that Chan faltered. Suzuki over Kostner in Nice? NO WAY!

    To me it didn't seem like the world champions were as motivated to do well here, while the winners here clearly were motivated.

    You're both missing the point.

    The idea of "whoever wins that night is the rightful winner that night" is a pile of poo.

    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.

    And the significance of these two competitions ( the world championships and the WTT) is totally different.
    We cannot, or should not compare the results ot these competitions.

    I don't see any "should not" about it. This is a fan board.

    Part of their purpose in life is to question the judging.

    The few, the proud

    Somebody's gotta do it.

    Always prepared, with a snark in one pocket and a calculator in the other.

    Don't even get me started. I'm talking before Nagano.
