    They're well back. Virtually no chance of winning now.

    Accurate score. Definitely not their best skate or as strong as D&W. Good to see. I defended the scores of Chan, Osmond, and Duhamel & Radford on various forums and was dissed for being a biased Canadian, but had that performance beaten or even virtually tied D&W I would have had to pretty much drop the defense for the rest of the Worlds.

    So much for that whole Canadian conspiracy theory. That's a big gap.

    Meryl's Canadian grandmother must've given D/W some fairy dust....seriously.....I can't believe there's a gap.

    There really had to be a big gap... Those twizzles were way off, unfortunately.

    Now hopefully all the crazy conspiracy theorists can shut up.

    Virtue/Moir made mistakes, didn't skate as well as Davis/White and the scores reflected that.

    I predict Weaver & Poje to end up 6th in the SD, but I hope they end up 5th. If they are 5th they could skate in the final flight and still have an outside shot at the bronze. However I think the 2 Russians, French, and Italians all pass them. Gilles & Poirier will end up 15th, a bit better than I expected before Worlds, as I was expecting about 17th but not a huge difference.

    Probably everyone finally got fed up with their attitude: the sweet-looking couple who constantly reveals their true colors.

    I know! I was one who thought V/M were a lock for gold.

    Frankly, I thought V&M were well beaten, and I even preferred W&P for 2nd.

    D&W were simply outstanding in every department. It's a much better choreographed, more exciting routine.
    They were sublime.

    Not only. I am sure they got L3 for patterns too.

    Apparently, according to Tracy Wilson, their step sequence was reviewed and given level 3 and then issues with twizzles and therefore level 3.

    Definitely deserved to be behind D/W, maybe even a couple of points lower than what they got. For me, the dance didn't have any "polka" feeling in it and in fact seemed really downbeat. Tessa was not light on her feet...in fact, seemed unusually cemented to the ice, agree with the upthread poster who noticed that also.
