Again, I don't find anything particularly infuriating with CSG's opinions, nor do I feel that much is to be gained from "trolling trolls" (and, IMO, giving them the attention they crave is always "feeding"). I'm simply asking for a forum more dedicated to the discussion of skating than to shutting others down.
This IS a figure skating forum, so I'd like to discuss...figure skating. Like which two Russian ladies will make it to the Olympics. I thought that that was pretty self-explanatory, but I guess not.
Please show some respect. I won't bother asking you again.
Aside from MK and Yuna, though, Julia has one of the toughest mental states I've ever seen. Give her a few more seasons and she'll definitely be a force to be reckoned with.
And I'm basing it off the results from Worlds and Junior Worlds, where Lipnitskaia, even with less PCS than the top girls, would have placed in the top 5. Assuming she improves next season, she can clear 190 which is generally a top 5 worthy score.
What's your deal with predictions? You say that Chan will fall in Sochi like at WTT/Worlds and the sport will suffer an apocalyptic death, but in this thread you criticize people for making predictions. Obviously we know that we won't know the results until the girls hit the ice. That's why they're called predictions. If you just want to knock people for making predictions in a predictions thread, add no value to the discussion, and just try to instigate other posters, then what's your purpose for even being here?
But ITA with everything else you've said here.
It's stupid argument to compare scores from different competitons where the skater didn't hit the ice. It's invalid and therefore is not worthy to be seriously considered.And I'm basing it off the results from Worlds and Junior Worlds, where Lipnitskaia,
Well I was really accustomed to reading that if sotnikova's program got a persons feet moving it was in running out of the rink! Hope she can do something that gets judges to respect her skills. And she gets her triple toe back and fixes her flip. Similar things with Liza. Maybe you can give her a good latin program and then she stays planted in the center of the ice. These flaws caused their 9th and 10th finishes at worlds and are unfortunate. It's why I think they could be totally thrown overboard for Julia.
I think Julia is a beautiful skater but to be honest I think her jumps are going to be gone next year. She gets so little height that when she fills in a bit she will not be able to finish the rotation unless she changes her technique considerably.
