    Hi, SS.
    Don't remember whether you're the one who has started previous NBC threads. In any case, a friendly suggestion for next time:
    If you're putting the thread in The Edge, I think that the thread title should include the name of the competition -- Rostelecom, GPF, or whatever -- both for posterity, and out of respect for our friends outside the U.S. who are keeping track of other competitions. Thanks.

    pftt...

    Commentator called D/W the clear OGM favorites and called their 1.35 point win over V/M convincing... what a load of ...

    D/W are so great that when they have a good performance like they did at the GPF we expect sublime. I did not think this performance was sublime. I actually think it was 'cleaner' than at NHK but not as impressive.

    Chan was interviewed and he mentioned having won enough GPF to be able to appreciate the smaller things. He is confident he will win the Olympics.

    The more I see Elena Radinova's Long program - the more I hate it.

    I have to agree. She is lovely and talented but that program is inappropriate and unwatchable for me.

    Despicable! One of the reasons I detest Patrick Chan; if anyone deserves to lose the Olympics, it's him! He's said a lot of horrible things in interviews, disrespecting Plushenko, etc., but this one takes the cake!

    Julia is good but there are at least five other skaters I would rather see on the podium. She is not great yet.

    This not only disrespects Hanyu, but all the competitors of the GP series, there are only 6 spots in the final, if you're not going to skate your all then stay home and let someone else have your spot.

    Bored watching Ashley ..... Johnny thinks that the audience did not connect with her FP performance.

    Agree with your complaints against Schlanger after showing Davis/White's FD.
    Virtue/Moir broke D/W's world records in both the SD and FD ... and then D/W broke both of V/M's minutes-old WRs.
    Although D/W are Americans and NBC is an American network, shame on Schlanger for ignoring the real take-home message of the GPF dance competition: the rivalry btwn D/W and V/M is very much alive.

    On a different subject: glad that NBC acknowledged the pairs competition this time.

    And thanks to SS and to the mods for getting the thread title changed.

    not surprised - I was at TEB and her gala performance was the most boring skate I ever witnessed.
