    Maybe it's just me, but I find this music, and this program, to be incredibly juvenile and something a junior team would do to show how they're "maturing".

    B/S look almost TOO fast, like it looks a bit out of control.

    I haven't seen such ****** scoring in a while. Talk about inflating the scores for the Russians. Really? A Level 1 on the second part of the required footwork for both North American teams. Hogwash. The technical controller Ms. Katalin Alpern should be fired for being as corrupt as it gets.

    Yes, double hogwash.

    If B&S were hit for what they did wrong maybe not - but they were rewarded with 68.42.

    Event over.

    Nowhere else in the world would R/T be that close to W/P. And a level 1 for C/B and W/P's footwork? Seriously?

    All three Russian teams beat W/P technically. WOW! I am shocked at the scoring at this event.

    This is why Russia should never get an Olympics. This is as bad as during the cold war when they openly would cheat.

    How stupid do they think we are? You could fertilize all of Asia with the Russian scores.

    OK, now tell me that this result is fair and nonpolitical.
    B/S were a hot mess and WON by a huge margin.

    You told me I was talking nonsense. Well, what do you say now?
    I felt the technical team was suspect, but a judging panel with 5 former SSRs, 4 of whom would certainly favor the Russian teams? How dumb do they think we are?

    The men's and ladies panels were nearly as bad. No wonder Kovtun and Lipnitskaia got astronomical scores. Yes, they are good, but.....
