    Davis and White: FD not "effortless"

    Excerpt: [In their FD at the GFP], the Olympic silver medalists moved through various changes of holds and positions without neglecting either the emotional side of their heart-breaking story or the technical aspects of the required elements' execution.
    “Some days you go out there and the performance comes really easily,” said Davis, “and other days you have to fight through it. Today, we were proud of the way we fought through it, and still put out a great performance. I think it’s days like that, when it doesn’t come super easily, that we feel we really grow the most.”

    I think I preferred their NHK version to the GPF version.
    But the GPF is definitely better than Skate America.

    I'm just not feeling the FDs of the top two teams this year... seems to always be my problem... I don't think there's been a season where I've liked both the SD/OD and FD from D/W or V/M.

    For me its hard understand why D-W had season best in FD if at NHK FD look better (not FD - choreo is bad, music cut is bad and this FD they skated two years ago, but speed, power, emotions were better in Japan).
    And for is a big question who gave them 10 for choreo in FD. Maybe i disagree with marks for interpretation, but this is question of judges preference, but choreo really?
    And how they could have higher GOE, then at NHK if at GPF SS were slow? So they get all 10th at WCh?

    Are you saying this FD is just like their Tango FD?

    Agree. But this FD even have the same finale
    I more wonder about D-W marks. In my opinion they must have low marks at GPF or higer at NHK
    I know its USA users forum, but guys, did you really think this FD could get 10 for choreo and transitions?

    I just don't understand how they could generate so much speed and flow so effortlessly. They're true wonders on ice in many good ways

    At GPF they have the same speed with others and were slow in the steps.
    Maybe at NHK they were fast

    Our latest poll on this subject had it pretty even as to where our users are from. N. America and the rest of the world were nearly 50/50. We're more international than you think.

    USA & Europe+Russia were about the same in the poll. About 35% each.

    Its OK. But i think only ubers didnt see any problems in D-W programs and skating. Any skaters have there best and worst sides

    It is very true that all teams have their best and worst sides.

    If you are looking for uber threads, though, they are in the GS Fan Fest forum,
    http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/for...?362-Fan-Fests

    not The Edge (this part of the GS forum)

    I never realized that. No wonder we have such a wealth of information (and even translation) at our disposal.
