    So you think he will make it to the end of this season? I don't see a Russian nationals with his level!

    Balde really disgusted with his score, but he shouldn't be. That was a fairly flawed though interesting skate. He should be able to improve as the season goes on. He should also adjust his music mix so that percussion is toned down--it overpowers and grates on the ears. Distracting.

    Balde has charisma to spare, but it seemed like there was a fair amount of skating on two feet.

    I wouldn't rule Gachinsky out. He surely has a lot of talent. It's a pity that he totally blew it at worlds and didn't have a good start to this season. He has proved in the past that he can do it - just remember the euro12. I just hope he gets it together and finds the confidence he needs to take it to the next level.

    I like Amodio, but I hate his stop-pose stop-pose stop-pose kind of choreo

    Amodio's program is jump after jump after the second half. So much for the not frontloaded /balanced programs..

    Who is commenting in the arena?

    I like this FS from Amodio far better than last season's, but I agree a little too much stop and pose especially in first half of program. And those weird hand movements get irritating in the second half. Pretty well skated, though.

    I feel he has talent as well but it is not just confidence he is missing. Someone needs to take him and teach him how to skate.

    He was upset he didn't make the TES 65 for Worlds.
