I dont think it is over for them by any means. The chance for the 2nd Olympic Gold is still there. This is not the pairs equivalent where V&T will win barring 3 falls or worse. But right now I would say D&W are 70-75% likely to win the Sochi Gold. If I were a betting with real money I know which team I would place my dollars with the bookies on right now.
It ain't over til it's over. There's no reason to say V/M are done just because the judges/tech team at Finlandia gave them a hard time. They've never been at their best in the early season anyway. I'm sure their performance at SC will show a vast improvement. GPF will be their last and only head-to-head with D/W before Sochi and that should be a nailbiter.
I'm baffled by all this angst also. V/M will fix whatever issues they feel they have, and they will show up in Sochi fully prepared to contend for the gold medal. The sun will rise in the east tomorrow and the Pope is still Catholic. I have no doubts about the certainty of all three of these things.
Having an Olympic gold medal in their pocket already, I believe V/M will be more relaxed mentally than D/W. That will give V/M the advantage at the most stressful moment.
When I saw the thread title, I thought I seriously missed something like V/M decide to split? One got seriously injured?
It is not the case and I don't see the legitimacy of the discussion.
Even if they finish 2nd or 3rd in Sochi, that is still great. So what game??What over???!!!!
And if they want to continue, they won't be that old to compete in the 2018 Olympics.
