That is not what I said. You'd note that my comments were comparing Oda and Mura. It is easier to assess the style of a judging panel using results from lower ranked skaters than it is to use results from the top skaters.

Would you say Oda and Mura have comparable PCS based on their SP in Sapporo even though Mura outjumped Oda?
Furthermore, would you say Kozuka's 11th place finish at the 2012 Worlds is a result of Denis Ten, 7th place, outjumped him despite comparable PCS?
That's my point precisely, Oda and Mura do not have comparable PCS, yet because Mura landed jumps, he almost beat Kozuka who was superior in the 6 of the other 7 elements and in all 5 components of the PCS. Does that make sense to you, a single jumping element carries so much weight?

Very sad for Horinouchi. This is his last season, so it means his last Nats

It was so heartbreaking for us=skating fans to see his and his coaches' sad faces on TV, wasn't it?...;;;

Is it really impossible to find a stream live? I wish Japan didn't have such strict laws against pirating. :/

Not necessary. The tech pannel and judges work separately. The fact that judges didn't punish him as much as they should be for ur 4T and e on 3L means that they didn't see UR and edge call on those jumps, so they gave what they gave- -1/-2 GOE for shaky landing on the rotated quad and +GOE for a solid 3L combo. The judges and the tech pannel clearly didn't have the same opinion regarding those elements which make the whole judging look even more stupid and cooked than it's already is. The most laughable comment came from a referee of JN justifying level 3 for Dai's Stsq after CoC (he got level 4 plus +2 GOE at NHK): not enough use of upper body .

From the western point of view it's not clearly a "commenting" since the comment usually should include the opinion. They commentators here simply give the information that they have access to earlier than the public. And nothing more. Moreover, even if due to whatever miracle the commentator started to express the opinion that differs from judges', so what I wonder. They do it all the time on non-J TV channels, Russian or European or N.American, etc. Read what you said- things are right because the TV commentator said so! Gosh..

There are things that officials can't control- love of the audience, popularity and acceptance or not by public. Many officials are little people afterall who get easily envious of someone else's success that is beyond their influence.

This is really annoying. I could watch Euro and US Nationals live through internet feed, but can not watch my own country's Nats live!

Did they randomize the skating order within the groups? How come Yuzuru's skating last again?
