    But the stupid USFS have already decided their Worlds team before waiting to see how the skaters perform at 4CC. As usual.

    LOL... can you explain the "the freaking depth"?

Another thing that unfortunately hurts U.S. guys is the freaking depth in their country because their momentum is lost from year to year due to it being so hard to get out of Nationals when everyone is so talented. At least two guys have got to step up and say, "This is mine! I'm going to Worlds every year and establish myself as a dominant force internationally!"

    But eh, so what? Doesn't mean whoever they pick is going to lay it down similarly at Worlds as at 4CC. It's just that state of affairs right now. Someone has got to step above the crowd of U.S. guys and say, "This is mine!" And then try to become a dominant force internationally.

    Go ahead and laugh. There is depth in the U.S. -- crazy depth, even if you don't think so. Lots of countries would be happy having any of our 1 - 10. Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

    there is, US has the largest number of junior worlds and jgp winners since the 2000's
    the problem is that they lack consistency

    Exactly. Only Japan has as much depth the difference being their top skaters are more consistent and at the top right now. The US sure has a heck of a lot more depth then say Canada where it's Chan and everyone else.

    Let's be honest here, Richie is a bit overscored, 83+ for a touchdown on 3a and the ugly spins? Song should be in the lead IMHO.

    Well tell me if I'm wrong (and I'm sure someone will! LOL!), but hasn't Ricky tended to get the highest scores out of all the current Americans not named Abbott when he skates (relatively) cleanly?

    And what may be holding the American men back is that no one American has a complete package--and by the I don't just mean athletics and artistry, but also consistency and the ability to control their nerves in pressure cooker situations.
