    What a shock for Caroline! Did they downgrade EVERY jump? geez. Poor girl. She looked lovely and so relaxed throughout. I'm crushed for her.

    Reputation scoring needs to go. Now.

    So since politics still enters into the scores, why are we bothering with this BS scoring system which disconnects the audience from the results and has injured skaters with legs flying out of their sockets? How about returning to 6.0 with NO anonymous judging, and institute a judging oversight committee.

    Sadly reputation scoring will never go away no matter what kind of scoring system they come up with.

    Yes, she got a DG on one jump and UR on the other two.

    Oh, absolutely, Mrs. P. It's like, they're saying, "Just who are you, Ms. Forte?"


    Too bad for Kiri. The commentators are kinda funny because if Kiri had skated well, they would be like they were during the warm-up saying that her earlier pairs skate helped her.

    I agree, but I doubt it will. And I don't blame the judges themselves for this--reputation bias is so unconscious that they probably don't even notice it.

    Subjective sport, after all.

    Which sucks because she's actually a really good skater. That 3S was huge!

    Send some positive vibe to Caroline and Joelle. You guys should do a back flip tomorrow in the LP!

    I have previously been a fan of CoP. But, for once, I have turned against it.

    skating singles and pairs at this levels seems bonkers. how can you possibly have the energy to work four programs in one season?
