    Then maybe you should go to school, together with Patrick, learn some math and how to count. And why are you complaining about PCS anyway if PC still shamefully got the highest PCS? Or you are saying that he should have got 10 and Dai 7, or what? The only one who has the right to complian here is Javi and his fans. He was the one who was robbed by PCS scam for Chan who shouldn't be on the podium at all.

    I agree with you on this one. But look at it with the skater's eyes. The judges were dumb enough not to get Blues, one of the best masterpieces ever in Men skating. And they were surely more open for some cliches that their "intelligence" could comprehend. I somehow would understand the skater in such situation.

    At first I was partly disappointed that I won't see his perfect torso that that coloful stuff highlighted greatly. But that blacky black outfit made him look almost demonic, more like a ballet than opera. The mesmerized audience was terribly quiet watching him and started shouting only at the end.

    Asahi showed a backstage video after the final, Yuzu kneeled with congratulatiosn for Dai in a traditional manner while Dai was sitting on the chair doing his boots stuff.


    GREAT DAY for Team Japan! I hope this ice will be lucky for you a year later too!!!!!!

    In all of the disciplines, the judging was on the generous side imo.

    Many many congrats to Daisuke Takahashi for winning the very first GPF by a Japanese male skater!

    To be honest, I thought he lost the chance for the gold upon his mistake on the second 3A in a combo...Judges are a bit generous to Dai about GOEs this time, e.g. not straight -3 on the fall on 4T, two 3A with lesser -GOEs, ect. But he only placed 3rd in the Free and won overall thanks to the lead from SP, it's okay with me. My guess is Dai himself and his team wished he could have won overall with a much cleaner Free skate, though.

    And to his new costume!!! I am so glad he dumped distracting gloves, finally. He looks gorgeous in that black costume.

    Just finished watching the medal ceremony.

    I will be very pleased if this is the exact same podium order as the next major ISU event in Sochi next year

    Javi only gets the PCS he does because he is so good at quads. Kozuka is a much better skater. Javi's TES is great and his jumps are allowing him to close the gap on PCS, but don't you guys remember just a couple seasons ago, before Javi started landings all these quads, how his PCS scores were in the 6s? His skating has improved but not that much and the FS in particular is not that great. If anyone was robbed it was Kozuka, the scores, PCS and TSS, were all very generous for Tak, Hanyu, and Chan considering what they did. Javi wasn't robbed and doesn't deserve higher PCS, more like the top 3 were held up and deserve lower.

    If you've been winning (almost) everything in sight for the past two years, wouldn't you?

    I missed the event and haven't watched the videos yet but I have to congratulate Daisuke for winning this event and for being the first Japanese to do so. He is indeed a pioneer Japanese male skater with all his accomplishments!

    And congrats too to Yuzuru, Patrick, and Fernandez.

    I hope Patrick will exorcise Oda out of himself.

    Yes--Yuzuru did, at the Finlandia Trophy.

    If anything, his PCS has dropped. Even when he's had multiple falls, his PCS scores were nearly all in the 9s, and mid 9s at that. Now they're mostly in the low 9s with some high 8s. He needs a technical coach, and fast.

    As for Kathy Johnson, I thought his purpose in bringing her on was to increase his connection with the audience (which is the hallmark of a great skater). He's still skating pretty much for himself, and dancy moves have replaced some of his usual transitions.

    Maybe he'll realize he won't be handed World gold or Olympic gold on a silver platter! Karmic payback for his disrespectful statements re Plushenko ("36 or 37 year old landing quads" - arrogant!)

    Chan's worst thing was the zayak then the quad problem but I think the ice was fine because why wasn't Fernandez affected? Takahashi finally won, his loss to lambiel was so narrow!

    This would mean he truly thought he deserved every single win of his
    I have no doubt he'll come back stronger than ever after today but he needs this reality check.

    Although...its not clear what Lysacek would be most afraid of, Hanyu's 2S, Takahashi's 4T(fall), Chan's 4T(fall) Kozuka's 4T(fall) or Machida's 4T<<.
