    The British Eurosport commentators are LIVID!!!!!......saying the marks are ridiculously too high....for both B/L and V/T....and questioning the home ice advantage....they actually thought D/C deserved at least silver.....

    Ridiculous judging and scoring for the Russian teams. D/C were robbed of the Silver.

    Talking of overscoring, yesterday after V/T SP Bianconi of Raisport was saying perhaps 68points or something above (ie not 74). Today, watching LPs on Rai after that ridiculous B/L, V/T scores I quickly switched the TV off in fury, so I don't know what she might have said.

    So the term "chanflation" was applied to Patrick and what should we create for V&T? Tranflation?

    I'll say this, and anyone familiar with my posts will know I don't say it lightly: I think for all that Patrick Chan can be generously scored, at least he has the programs to back it up. This was an error-ridden, uninspired performance of a mediocre program. And as such, it may be the worst PCS overscore I have seen.

    If they're that blatant and shameless about it, I am really concerned about what will happen at the Olympics.

    For some perspective, S/S's FS at Skate Canada, which did not have any falls and just ONE element that received -GOE got 129.10. Their PCS was 67.51, more than 4 points less! Yikes.

    I also think V/T were also over scored as far as +GOE.....

    I'm a huge fan of Volosozhar & Trankov but I don't think anyone can seriously believe that their scores in the FS were fair.

    Disagree.The same could be said about last year's Chan=/ imho,of course. In my opinion,but for the mistakes V/T SHOULD have had the best score, about 141-45. I like this program a lot!It's not mediocre or smth=//

    First paragraph: point taken, and I agree.

    Second paragraph: Sochi is going to be very bad and very controversial in the figure skating disciplines with pro-Russian skater bias, count on it. The ISU will circle the wagons and defend the Russians. Count on that, too.
