    This is so frustrating! There's more footage of bigfoot than of skating. There is no excuse as to why NBC can't be broadcasting this right now.

    Tracy Wilson said Andrew had a bobble on the circular step sequence.

    Presumably, technically they scored 41 and change (beat B/S on PCS though). Did they lose an element entirely, or were they just hammered with low levels? I'll have to wait for the protocols (no deductions, though).

    Disappointing.

    They likely lost several levels on the spin, one footwork sequence, and the spread eagle lift, we'll see in the protocols.

    I don't know. I haven't seen either team's FD but I personally thought the teams should have been closer yesterday. It's been exciting to watch W/P over the past two years since they have improved so much, but it seems to me now that B/S are making their own huge improvements. If they won on the merits I'm glad they did so and I think that is something we should be encouraging rather than just reputation judging from last year.

    Again, though, I've not seen the skates.

    ETA: I'm not meaning to suggest at all that you favor reputation judging. I respect all of your opinions here a great deal. I was just saying why I don't find this particularly disappointing.

    I don't doubt that B/S deserved to beat W/P. I'm disappointed that W/P had what looks like a disappointing skate. I haven't seen this competition yet, but I actually like both these free dances, but my heart is with W/P. That's all.

    The excuse is that the Action Sports Tour gets better ratings, especially among young people. Therefore, it gets coverage from 2 to 4 p.m. today. Skate America gets 4 to 6 p.m.

    I hear you. I edited my post to try to reflect that I do understand what you are saying. I kind of find shake ups in dance exciting because they're so rare, but my heart is with certain teams too

    Yeah, that first minute and a half was slightly all over the place.

    Protocols are up.

    B/S had higher levels than D/W. That will not happen again.

    W/P got hammered as we thought.
