    I agree skatingfan04....not at all worth the risk if this indeed is the neck problem lift. I still haven't seen it so....waiting impatiently :(

    and yeah, I know they are human, just didn't realize they were quite this human

    V/M are ahead of C/L because of huge PCS scores. Technically, they took several hits:

    YP: they hit only 3 of 6 key points, 12.79 points; C/L got 13.26
    Twizzles: level3 for 6 points; C/L level4 and 7
    Step sequence: level2, 7 points; C/L level3 and 7.79
    Lift: level1, 1.93 points; C/L level4 and 5 points

    The lift cost them the most; it was a hot mess.

    Although different judging panels...something to point out- Weaver and Poje's scores at Skate America would have been first in the SD here

    edit... a tweet from Peter Murray-something to think about

    V/M tech score 27.72 does meet minimum Tech Score (29) to qualify for Worlds. Only the Italians did with 32.44.

    Yeah, that's an ouch. V/M have the tech score from last year, of course, and they're eligible for Worlds, but ouch.

    I think it is. Neither team seems as half as prepared as they did at the beginning of last year... the programs don't seem as cohesive... I don't think the coaches are as good seperate as they are together... but it's early and they could prove me wrong.

    in all honesty and no spite, that miss on the lift was slightly funny. flailing bodies and costume malfunction.

    classy universal sports wont even show top 3 skaters/teams, allotted space for americans. how "universal" of them.

    I totally agree. I am surprised they got positive GOE on it no matter how little. Also thought the GOE on the twizzles was VERY lenient. Scott obviously made an error.

    All the same they are a joy to watch. I understand the PCS having seen it.

    B/S beat D/W in levels in the FD, not the SD.

    D/W's SD vs V/M's SD:

    YP DW: level2 for the first segment and level4 for the second; total: 13.92
    YP VM: level3 for the first segment and level2 for the second; total: 12.79

    Twizzles DW: level4, 7.33
    Twizzles VM: level3, 6.00

    Step Sequence DW: level3, 8.83
    Step Sequence VM: level2, 7.00

    Lift DW: level4, 5.17
    Lift VM: level1, 1.93

    TES DW: 35.25
    TES VM: 27.72

    PCS DW: 37.14
    PCS VM: 37.37

    I thought SCI used international judges? Why would it be more corrupt than any other GP event using international judges?

    You beat me to the video post, 1795.

    Very interesting. Davis and White had a similar problem with their lift at SA in the sd, but not quite as prolonged as that by Tessa and Scott.

    Surely it was not just the lift that had V/M being scored uncharacteristically low. I admire V/M skill, but I have never really been over the moon with their skating in terms of their character and personality on the ice. OTOH, I am in love with Weaver/ Poje and Davis/ White, and I also enjoy Mitchell/ Islam, and Gilles/ Poirier much more than V/M.

    I think D/W sd is better than V/M this season.

    One more thing about the lift- I love how Tessa came out of it beaming as though nothing had happened. Made me smile.

    I'm not sure what you mean. I saw all the teams on my Universal stream. No problems.
