    Just because you repeat something enough, doesn't make it true. :P

    I'm very happy that VT won. Worried about their throws though, they need fixing ASAP.
    But my main concern is SS costumes - what are this rainbow bra and a weird skirt on Aliona?

    Although I only watched on line, IMO politics had nothing to do with the result, nor did the one note program by S&S. I object to the judgment of VT's choreo as simplistic - it's not.

    The main issue, IMO, was speed and ice coverage. VT had much more power, longer run of blade, covered the ice and were fast. S&S were dragging out there and not covering the ice as well. Their elements, save for the mistakes, were huge. Their choreography, taste aside, was intricate. But relative to VT they were dragging and not getting the power out of the blade.

    You prefer the worlds where Russians bought all the medals? I do not.
    Of course I would like Canadian Skating Federation (or some millionaire) to buy them medals, unfortunately Canadian millionaires money go for such "small" things like improving Canadian economy, solid banking and things like that. And they prefer skaters to win medals honestly. I am sure, so do Canadian skaters.

    Oh my god. This thread is like deja vu of SD thread- Russian mafia bought ISU. I was expecting something more creative.

    KS - program of the night with or without mistakes. Gorgeous. I don't understand their low scores.
    VT - I didn't like the way they skated tonight, no passion, but grief...well...understandable, some mistakes, huge score.
    SS - As i said earlier, their time is over, no creative programs, awful costumes, BIG mistakes every skate and what puts me down - they skate as if they don't care... I used to be anxious to see them, cuz it was an entertainment each time, joy - now - nothing. And they realise that it doesn't depend on them, it depends on VT if they are clean or with small errors, they'll win. And there's no point getting offended cuz SS used to be ALWAYS overscored, don't you remember when they won over KS with big mistakes and missed element? By the way they DID get a huge score tonight as well for what they showed!
    Happy for the Italians!!!

    IMO, it was a bad idea to take an interview. I understand it's a tradition and a protocol, but it was sad to watch, it seemed like Max was very close to tears.

    The sad thing is that even without the fall on the side by side 3S, S/S would still be second. I knew it from the very start S/S have no chance once I saw V/T's score. It was pretty much set up, just like in 2010 euros IMO. One can only hope for a more objective panel of judges at worlds

    , thanks for the good laugh
    yes Chan's superinflated scores with 2 falls or Osmond's 200+ score will disagree with you
    D/R 200+ score

    I have to say maybe the Germans are getting a taste of their own medicine. for years I never quite saw why the scored so high though it is just my opinion. And to be honest I find it really disturbing that their little gimmicks or transitiosn are teh same over and over. I know you shouldn't get deductions for that but their entrances into throws and jumps are getting boring to me. And being artistic does not mean having to be "weird". That being said there is no really awe inspiring pairs team in the world right now. I am not even enamoured so much with the Italians though happy they won a bronze - though I do fear it could be the bronze of death that seems to be the problem for some odd reason with bronze medallists.
