I was there and the scores got booed , not the skaters ! I was one of the many that did boo the scores and feel very justified in doing so . They were given a great applause at the medal ceremony. PCS are nothing but a newer way to hold up skaters !!!

I am glad to hear this! I was there for the short and saw the end of the long in Skate Canada house. I reported elsewhere that I was so proud that fans were supportive of all skaters and was told that I was wrong. I wondered if I was and went and checked the FS online and had the impression that it was the scores that got booed. Glad to have this confirmed. People in SCH were all excited at the end of the event that 2 Canadians had done so well. No grumbling. And then Dylan Moscovitch came in to huge applause!

Well as much as I preferred the two Canadians I can see why Ssquared won silver; just like Kostner getting silver and Chan's gold. The uneducated world to skating may not understanding COP but diehards or blowhards lol do. (they just may not like to admit it double lol) But the more we whine and complain i am not sure we are helping the sport survive. when you think about it; it wasn't a well skated world's. The pairs were not "special" and no one was whistle clean - lots of bobbles at least.

Well, I consider myself as a diehard. I do understand COP. Do I agree with all its assumptions and how it is applied? No. It does not make me uneducated.
