And looking at the endless complaints Trankov makes and his many mistakes, I begin to wonder if Maria Mukhortova might not have been at fault for the problems in that partnership to the degree many people thought.

I think we should take it easy. I believe the OG will be ok. There's always so much scrutinity going on in the OG! Everybody is watching with an eagle eye. Yes, there are problems sometimes. Let's not suffer by antecipation.
Volosozhar & Trankov are a wonderful pair and even with the mistakes they did, the advantage they gained in the SP should be enough to assure them the gold medal anyway. What I don't understand is why there were judges scoring them with 9.75 for performance / execution when they had big mistakes that obviously took away from the general impression and the skaters themselves reflected it during the program. With that said they also got scores as high as 9.75 for interpretation. I agree with that judge that scored them with 7.75 in that segment simply because it reflects what happened on the day!!!
