    It was more fun back then.

    Didn't we? Folks were always griping about "underrotated" jumps, flutzes, turn outs, poor edge control, etc... now they just have a judging system to back them up.

    Thank you Mathman.
    I hate it when people make up baseless comments and state them as facts

    That's because in this stupid communication turnouts are only mentioned for jump combinations. Likewise, a turnout on a normal jump is still a bad landing and would deserve a -1 or -2. A touch down of the free foot on the landing is a separate mistake and deserves -1, I hope you see that.

    Yeah, because under 6.0 people never questioned the judges marks and "just enjoyed the performances".

    The point of all this however is, that Mao Asada (like Patrick Chen on the men's) is getting all those inflated GOEs because of her name and past success (she got showered with generous GOEs for her triple axel and several other underrotated jumps in the LP as well) and not based on the things that actually happened on the ice which is simply wrong judging and needs to be improved in the future.

    I love Mao but Akiko's short program is my fav of the season so far, I just rewatched it, she is the female Daisuke, she dances there, lovely choreo.

    I agree, Seniorita - Akiko's SP is something very special.
