It's interesting to hear a casual fan's take on this. Does his head explode when you tell him people can win competitions with 4 falls?

Oh he hates that skaters win with falls. He has not been very impressed with Patrick Chan for this reason. He jokes that he transitions to the ice. I have explained the system to him, but he feels like it's flawed that a fall on a quad, for example gets more points then a perfectly good triple lutz.

In the ladies, back to this thread, he liked Ashley and Christina's program. He felt Adelina deserved bronze for her jump mistakes, but agreed that she has a lot of great ice coverage and speed. He felt that Adelina's brain just needs to get used to the fact she has a more grown up body and not signal it to do the jumps like when she was younger.

Kanako was crazy good, I felt her PCS was the one that should have been that close to Akiko's with Akiko just about edging her out in that respect due to Kanako's telegraphing. I do think she is going to start getting recognised by the judges again...and me for that matter! I had honestly written her off after last season and her boring, empty programs which were technically lacking too. Good to see her coming back and not letting her jumping technique get in her way again.
