    The order is by world ranking. Due to Jason's successful junior results, he has racked up a lot of ranking points. Max did senior B's but that doesn't add up to as much.

    To think 10 skaters competing at one GP event was bad enough. This is a travesty.

    Agreed with Moment. The last minute decisions to withdraw only penalize the field, and they happen EVERY season, so why not start with 12? More potential entries, and less of a travesty when/if skaters withdraw

    Thank you--I didn't know that. But that is still interesting, that he would come into the season ranking so relatively highly.

    The suggestion of 12 skaters is a very good one. But then I'm greedy and would be happy if they went with 122 skaters.

    nobody seems to care about the fans who have bought tickets or paid for online viewing - With Detroit being easy to get to from the East Coast ( at least ) and Toronto with all its skaters being driving distance there is no excuse in the world not to fill the gaps caused by withdrawals . Even if they couldnt get the next highest ranked skater I am sure the audience would appreciate whoever they could get and it might give some young skater a great opportunity. Why , o why cant people think " out of the box" in the world of skating officialdom? I agree with Moment - this is a travesty indeed.

    Amano, AFAIR, is a very strict caller

    This is exactly why many skaters spend a bit longer in juniors these days-they want to start seniors with ranking points.

    ITA. There are always deserving skaters who get 0 or 1 spots. I never understood why the JGP events have so many skaters but the regular GP cannot. IIRC the host federations pay the skaters' expenses, but even so maybe they can have a second tier of athletes who at least get invited provided they can cover their own expenses.
