It would be quite an unsatisfactory explanation since C/L and their coaches should know what's ok and what's not.
V/M were really on fire. I love how I had that stupid geeky smile on my face after just a few seconds - love that slow start
I really don't understand why in ice dance of all competitions there is this RULE that one country has its number one team, and whatever the number 2 team does, they get held back. Weaver/Poje are not in 3rd place because they're canadian. And that's simply wrong, offensive. And pathetic.
I've never been a big fan of Bobrova/Soloviev (still, I liked last year's free), and despite really trying hard to enjoy them, I can't help but think they're not in the same league as ALL of the other couples in terms of PCS. They got almost 2 pts more in PCS than Weaver/Poje. I don't get it. Ilynikh/Katsalapov are way better imo and have a much bigger potential. Very unfortunate they've been branded russia's #2 pair, which brings us back to the whole "national #2 deduction".
Davis/White (still, a much better free so they'd probably still get the lead back in the end)
The guy who's driving the zamboni
Bobrova/Soloviev (Ilynikh/Katsalapov beat them as well, even in absentium)
