Talking about Yuna's PCS before Mao's ? no joke.

I agree we should talk about Mao's PCS too. What's bothering you?

You wouldn't be singing the same tune if Mao and Yu-Na's scores and performances had been swapped.

You can say that her skating isn't for you, that her reserved style doesn't draw you in, but to somehow conflate your personal tastes with an assessment of she isn't artistic, and if she is she isn't being sincere about it is wrong and just speaks of personal prejudice because your favourite, whoever that might be, didn't win.

LOL at people who said they didn't feel any emotions from Yuna's LP.
As a die hard fan of Les Mis, I have to disagree. She portrayed the characters so well. she was skating as if she were the characters. I especially liked when she skated to "on my own". She WAS Eponine! just full of expressions from her movements (her skating + body movements) with her facial expressions.
I think if Yuna didn't show any emotions, I would've got really upset that she ruined Les Mis performance because I love Les Mis. I got really mad when I watched the recent Les Mis movie.... especially when Hugh Jackman sung "Bring Him Home". it was terrible -_-

Just wanted to say that I also thought that Kim was a marvelous Eponine.

To me it seems several people didn't like Yuna's reaction after her LP performance. And it's kind of funny. What do you expect? Fist pumping, hopping around, kissing on the ice and crying like a baby?
She had her 'Oh my God unbelievable I did my first back to back clean performances at the important competition' moment already. In 2010.
She'd been doing clean practices all the week, and I suspect clean performances are not that rare any more for her. If she had self sureness that she could do it, and if she did what she did everyday, what's there to be overly excited?
Yuna looked relieved, peacefully content, quietly savoring the wonderful moment of her last Worlds to me. Which was very touching to me.

Rather calm actually, I mean calmer than it could be. On R-forums mostly Liza is getting blamed. Probably because she is a R-national champion, or because she is Mishin's . Some believe the R-girls were too harshly judged as a payment for B/S bronze in Ice dancing. I have no opinion on that.

You can "shut up" the commentators by pushing the button on your remote control. Precisely one of the reason why I choose JSport&others channels. Plus the quality of TV picture cannot be compred with any online options you suggested. No, thanks.

On the Ice
Is this some kind of hit-and-run trolling? After having created so much bad blood with your post, you neither defend or explain your position, but sneak back later, when things quiet down, to the same thread with yellow smilies, still not addressing the verbiage that afforded you five minutes of negative fame.

I expressed my position in the original post. To reply on insults and flaming pics to my address that some Yuna fans posted here is not worthy bothering. As for "sneaking", just tell yourself that the world is bigger than France and occasionally bother to look at the poster's location that is written right under the username. I am in a different time zone and I post when I find it convenient for me. Not when I sleep and not when I work. i.e. the time when most of Europe/NA located posters take their activities here. Have no idea why I have to explain you that. The only one who is trolling here is you with lame bickering and stupid personal attack. Yawn.

I'll take a Kim with poor music cuts and questionable facial expressions any day over someone like Kostner.
As for Mao, it's sad that she is no longer at her best, but I still love to see her compete and nothing can take away from the truly wonderful moments she's given us over the years.

I thought Caro skated beautifully. If she was clean, I'd arguably take her over YuNa and I'd definitely take her over Mao.
