DomShabs winning the CD in Vancouver was a good example of how judges had more flexibility to fix standings... but there was no hiding in the OD and FD when DomShabs were technically outskated by V/M and D/W.
I'd have to disagree about the final flight being a delight to watch. It was nice to watch, but I thought Carolina had a fantastic skate, but it was marred by how easy it was. There was no skater who really skated lights out... they just did what they needed to do to place. The final flight at the Olympics however was very exciting to watch because the skaters actually brought the technical chops.
