    I'll want to see the protocols. Agnes' levels must have been insane. Here we go with COP again. I get that the system has a very specific way of working but how can you put Agnes with a fall ahead of a clean Mirai?

    Looks to me to be a premium on speed, power and big jumps. I've noticed the same on the international level, so our judges just seem to be following suit.

    Like Caroline? Or more skaters and why? Most of the ladies got dinged for URs, I would imagine.

    Well, remember that there's also a pewter medal.

    Well, yes. Maybe not with silver or gold, and she'll be on the podium if she skates clean without any mistakes. Oh, and others, like Agnes and Christina, would have to have a FS with a mistake or two. Otherwise, Gracie won't be on the podium.

    I don't know anything about this OGM bonus, but would be nice if it is true. Not only did she come back with an unplanned 3F 3T, it was out of a step sequence, so how can that be not impressive at her age? She's not 16 anymore, and been away for almost 20 months.

    Interesting tweets with Phil Hersh: Mirai's score was generous. He doesn't understand Caroline's low score. Ashley polished but not brilliant. Agnes: RIDICULOUS

    Oh, and further down he says Michelle and Clay went to Switzerland for their honeymoon; Michelle sent her sister a video of Clay trying to skate.

    Ashley needs to add a 3/3 soon or she is going to get left behind internationally in the proverbial dust.

    Mirai just doesn't connect with the audience like she used to. She always seems to be thinking and not just skating with freedom. It looks like work with her.

    Mirai should try a new choreographer, why not take the choreographer of Kaetlyn Osmond for her, I think it will really suit Mirai since Osmond have the joy of skating like Mirai has in the past

    Can't wait to see Ashley's SP. I can't believe someone who fell is ahead of someone who was clean. Good ol' figure skating judges.
