    No.



    Yep, it's a done deal now. Whatever V/T show, they will be showered with 9s.

    I bet that 3salchow got +2s as well.
    Remember last year for once. This time they were the best. the gap is fine for me

    I agree with everything you said here, i am so pleased for Meagan and Eric, she was especially good tonight and even on the warm up you can see how much she loves to skate for an audience and those sbs 3lutzes
    also MT/M were great and James and cipres!

    I don't see Megan/Eric in second place, their LP is not as strong as their SP but we are in Canada, so who knows. Technically their program was amazing, I have no problems there. I just don't think they look good on the ice as a pair.
    if D/R skate clean in the FS, they will probably hang onto 3rd...S/S can (and will likely) pass them, assuming there aren't any stupid mistakes. V/T will win as long as they do what they've been doing all season...
    like i've said previously, i find D/R boring to watch from a performance standpoint, but i really respect and enjoy them b/c of the complexities they put into their programs...they really try to be different from other pairs, and it pays off.

    The "Let's talk" was bully. His "she jumped like monkey" and things like that are very ugly.
    On the other hand I think that V/T skated well. However the marks they have got were much too high.

    So S/S all level 4, base value bigger than the Russians but lower GOE. V/T throw 3Loop got +3 across the board, their GOE's were absolutely huge. D/R had 1 point over S/S in terms of base value but beat them in GOE. I'm ok with that, D/R were very strong technically. Still, S/S are getting slowly dumped IMO

    That was a very high standard competition. Hopefully I will be saying the same after the free skate. For me V/T deserve their lead, they demand your attention, there is real attack, power and speed. That was there best performance of the season and I didn't even like the programme during the GP. Well done to D/R on their performance, technically great but PCS not so sure. Is she tiny or is he really tall, the height difference is a bit distracting.

    Delighted to see K/S back in the mix, I would love for them to get a medal but it's a bit ask. S/S are still in the mix, I wouldn't write them off.

    I have to take back what I said about the 3salchow. It actually got -1s from most of the judges which was very surprising to see.

    A shower of +3s elsewhere though.

    I don't understand V/T 9+. Their programs are so crappy. Nothing new, nothing nice, mostly nasty stuff smashed together. Tackiness doesn't deserve 9+. Good grief!
    I agree about V/T. But D/W and V/M usually show programs that are bland and recycled and don't deserve 9+ either.

    The Canadian pair was exciting and had great intricate transitions throughout their program and skated with power and speed and assuredness. I would have them first.

    Nobody had a program as complex as D/R as far as element layout and transitions are concerned. They sold it really well too.

    Yeah their SS and postures and lines are not as good as some of the top teams but not like they didn't deserve very high PCS.

    (Ofc TR was their lowest score because mindless judges were being on auto-pilot as usual)

    Great performances, painfully predictable results. It was so apparent that CAN bought the block for their pairs, I'm guessing a deal with russia to seel out S&S. I wouldn't mind as much, but they played the victim in 02 (was that howle SLC affair a profile/publicity stunt) to such an extent engaging in blatant Politiking ever since.

    To put D&R within 2 points of S&S in PCS is beyond comment.

    Different strokes for different folks, I find their interpretation (his especially) over the top. But I like their LP a lot better.
    Funny how Megan/Eric got the fourth score on Transitions, the one area which they were the best. Their programs was full of intricate transitions. This shows that the judges don't know what they are doing.

    The standing is OKish. Everyone knows V/T will win no matter what, sadly we have to accept it. D/R did what they can, but I really don't get their appeal at all. The program of S/S is kinda merh compared to those they had last few years. MT/M have a gorgeous style but surfer a bit as Canadian No.2. K/S have a strong showing, but I doubt they can hold on to it. Hope lps won't be as bad as last year.

    Ockham's Razor.

    Both Canadian pairs skated clean programs with all of the technical elements executed to a very high standard as well as complex choreography. So why do you assume foul play?

    Why? S/S have obviously much better skating skills, postures and lines but they had an empty program and skated through the music.
