But I can't completely wrap my mind around how this supposed rigging takes place. Does the President of the USFSA send around a memo to all the judges? Do the judges meet beforehand to decide who to throw the contest to? Is there just a feeling ion the air that [this skater is the one we want to send to worlds no matter what?
It seems like if there is a big conspiracy year after year involving dozens of people, sooner or later some disgruntled judge, coach, or official would spill the beans.
