1. I'd argue that all of the Canton teams peaked at the GPF. None of the teams scored that well again. Indeed, if you believe that the tensions in Canton existed long before the actual shake-up, it almost makes sense.
2. I would love to see the Shibs tackle "Rhapsody in Blue" even if it's within the same choreographic box as what they've done before.
3. I'd argue that the Shibs declined when a number of teams RAISED their game: W/P, C/L, P/B.... even I/K. And that's what makes it tough for them to regain their medal, I think.
