    An off axis SBS jump that is doubled with a hands down upon landing often gets -2 GOE, S/H's SBS jump ain't anywhere near as bad.

    Now it will be really interesting to see which two Chinese pairs are going to Sochi.
    P/T is in, unless injuries prevent them from competing.
    Between S/H and P/Z, don't know which pair is a better choice, but it seems that S/H is only on the waiting list, judging by their LP cheap looking costumes.
    It will be a hard decision if S/H get higher placement overall than P/Z, which is very likely.

    The mean girls/bioches strike again. Please have some respect. These athletes are all doing their best so there's no need to attack skaters' body shapes.

    You're one to talk about respect when you're calling posters mean girls/biotches. I was being sarcastic for what it's worth, hence the head banging against wall gesture, which I repeat now because some people like you just don't get it and also make me want to bang my head against a wall.

    How obtuse of me not to realize that the head bang (sarcasm, the lowest form of wit, btw) makes it ok to be mean about skaters' body shapes.

    tulosai isn't the one that is being negative about a body weight/shape, but was calling out another poster who has a tendency to do so. (and for someone who thinks so lowly of sarcasm, you definitely have a good handle on it...)

    Tulossai was not being mean against a skater's body, but was sarcastic to sky_sky who has a habit of bringing up supposed "weight issue" of female skaters s/he dislikes. Of course, "dislikes" is a mild word to describe sky_fly's feelings and style of expression which are almost never mild.

    sorry Tulossai - I take it back -- it was sky_fly who was mean about body shapes.

    @Tonichelle: touche -- you have a good handle on it too

    Well it shouldn't, that's -3 GOE quality.

    You are fine- my reply was a bit snappy so apologies for that too. Despite my occasional snark I really do prefer to be one big happy GS family

    Beyond the top, pairs is shaping up to be quite the unpredictable discipline this season. Good to see the depth and mix of results.

    An unexpected win for BERTON/HOTAREK. Really liked their performance. Congratulations to them on winning Italy's first pairs Grand Prix medal!

    I enjoyed DUHAMEL/RADFORD's program. Will be interesting to see how the program develops.
