    Skate Canada so far...

    Your thoughts. It disgusts me that undeserving skaters get such a huge bonus from their federation((

    I agree. This has to stop.

    The most fraudulent event on the Grand Prix series. The scores awarded to Osmond, Chan, and Virtue/Moir so far illustrate why no one takes figure skating seriously as a sport. Get ready for the same nonsense to occur at Worlds, as it is being held in Canada.

    I am really enjoying to see SCI except unpleasant PCS for Canadian skaters.

    It seems that ISU judges don't like Pasquale Camerlengo's choreographies, which look very artistic to me. (Akiko, Daisuke, W/P) Probably they are too difficult to understand for them.

    I really liked W/P's FD at Skate America (saw that in person), but they made too many little errors relative to B/S. But the packaging is great and I think it will score well once they clean up their tech.

    I know a lot of people did not like Akiko's SP, but I still enjoyed it -- I think she wants a good challenge as far as performance and choreography.

    IMHO, the judges are doing a bad job. Maybe they're being influenced too much by the audience reaction. I don't blame Skate Canada.

    Skate Canada continues its reputation as the most corrupted GP
    personally I think Skate Canad should be removed from the isu Grand Prix with their superinflated scores see Chan and Osmond

    World Championships 2013 prediction:

    Patrick Chan - Gold
    Katelyn Osmond - Gold ( will topple Yuna's World Record Score ) lol waht a joke

    Wow. Skate Canada must have so much power to rig events in this way. Why do you think the other federations are so weak and pathetic?
