    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

    Please check the panels of judges sections under each event in this link:

    Skate Canada 2012

    Except the panels of judges for men's LP and Free Dance which haven't been displayed there yet, you could find the judges' names and origins in every event. In each event, there was only one Canadian judge in there out of nine judges. What are your bases to accuse Canadian federation?!

    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?

    So very agreed - I've never understood how an international panel can or would have bias?

    I'm not going to go there with the bias theory. But some thoughts:

    Akiko Suzuki got PCS of 28.95 in the SP. If you double that amount you get 57.90 (as you typically get double your SP score if you perform the same as the SP). In the FS she got PCS of 59.82, a difference of 1.92 points from the doubled PCS in the SP.

    Kaetlyn Osmond received PCS of 27.35 in the SP. A gap of 1.60 points from Suzuki. If you double that amount, you get 54.70. In the FS she received PCS of 59.61, a difference of 4.91 points from the doubled PCS. And the gap between her an Akiko is a mere .21.

    So:
    ** How did the judges decide that Katelyn's FS was so much better that they cut her PCS gap with Akiko by 1.39 points overnight?
    ** Also, why did the judges think Katelyn's FS was so much better artistically that she received an average increase of nearly a full point more for all categories?

    Just food for thought, that's all.

    It is hard for me to see how the Canadian federation that organizes Skate Canada can have undo influence here. Ultimately it's all ISU judges and referees. If the results of Skate Canada are manipulated, it's an ISU problem and the results for the rest of the GP series would be just as questionable

    There may be a home town advantage for Canadian skaters, and Skate Canada gets extra skaters as host picks, if I understand correctly. It's not super surprising that Canadians would do well. Like Russians at CoR, and Japanese at NHK
