You are saying that he is overscored every time when he gets higher marks for Performance than everyone else. Can't agree more.He is not, however, the best performer or the one with the most musicality.

Here he is at the banquet. Looks fine!: http://instagram.com/p/YDGBbvCBXJ/# Get better, Man!
Looking at those X-rays, it seems medical treatment to put his dislocated shoulder back to its appropriate position was a success! I am so relieved and glad to see his smile!
"Thank you so much for coming to Tokyo, Konstantin! Your SP was a highlight for me on Day 1 at WTT. You rocked the house! Get well soon and please have a safe trip to go home! "
And btw Plu also published his xrays and was accused of faking.
Look at it this way. If a journalist writes/says something mean and foolish about a skater, that is the journalist revealing him/herself as mean and foolish, not the skate.
Here was my thought process. At first I thought, why is the hospital releasing Menshov's xrays in violation of all medical ethics. Then I saw that it was Menshov who put the xrays in public view. I wondered why he would do that; usually medical treatments are private business between the doctor and the patient. Then I remembered the Plushenko situation. So then I thought -- ha, ha -- maybe from now on all athletes will feel like they have to prove that all their injuries are real.
Right after Menshov fell, you could see the way his arm was just hanging there that he had dislocated his shoulder. That must have hurt like the dickens. BTW, manipulating the shoulder back in position requires pulling the arm really hard and that procedure is even more painful than the original injury!
