    No way! We are talking PCS here. Elena is a natural performer. Polina is not.

    That's exactly what I meant. I should have specified. I didn't get a performance feel from Polina. I stress that she has good jumping technique but I wasn't feeling the performance and her footwork is a bit on the messy side, which I expect from a rising junior. Definitely needs more polish.

    I'm surprised that Agnes, Courtney, and Samantha did not place higher. It's clear that USFS wants skaters that are gonna bring the strong technical content.

    I have to admit that I really felt bad for Agnes. I'm not a particular fan of her skating but it isn't her fault that she was kind of overscored in the past, and now, just before the Olympics, they turn on her. She really must have felt that she had a great shot to make this team. She must have been in total shock. Poor girl

    I am more worried that the us judges are sending the message that the top ten American ladies are strong threats to the world and could lead to world domination.

    You serious?
    They turn on her? She gave them a reason to. Had she skated flawlessly and got 55, then yes, they turned on her. But she messed up her money jump. Again. At the competition where her spot is on the line. Again.
    What do you want them to do? Give her 68?

    There were VERY clear messages being sent by the judges during the SP. Like I said, it was Western Union in the Boston Garden last night.

    If the judges were consistent from event to event, year by year, a thread like this wouldn't be necessary.

    I agree. I really dislike Agnes skating (sorry) but I felt bad for her (nice girl). I don't like how the judges inflate in the first place and then later on kicked you hard to the curb. Talk about breaking up with someone big time.

    Another 'me too'. Her pcs went down five points from last year's SP, and I thought she improved in that aspect... But she just has done nothing to justify a 'boost' over the last two years. I wonder if she plans to stay in, or if this is her swan song.

    Okay this is getting disgusting. Sure Davis and White are good as is Abbott but come on these scores have little to do with reality. I thought Russia and Canada were bad but not only does it appear techincally the tes specialistis being generous but then the judges are being very generous. The results here would suggest no one in the world really could compete with not only the top tier Americans but people like Dornbush. Dai, Chan and Fernandez all would have trouble getting his scores let alone Abbotts. This could be perfect time for Abbott and Mirai they seem to be peaking after a lot of bad skates.

    Russia, yes -- Canada - not so much if you compare their home & international scores. With this judging it's obvious the US teams will be scooping up 4 gold medals.

    What I meant was that she has been badly overscored in the past, and NOW they decide to lower her scores (where they should have been in the first place, probably.) She should have been scored correctly in the past and then perhaps she would have worked on her obvious flaws. I'm not particularly a fan of her skating, I find her skating rather "meh," but propping her up in the past did her no favors. Not when there were other, better skaters around.

    Anway, I hope Ashley and Gracie both make it, they deserve it, but I can't decide who I want the third lady to be. I'm really torn. I do love Mirai, though.

    I think Canada has more home cooking than the U.S. Look at Chan's PCS 48 with two big mistakes-that's ridiculous. Jeremy has better presentation than Chan, and he's clean, yet he got a reasonable 45.

    Yes, but Chan is going to get big GOE's and deserves more for SS and such because he has speed, difficulty and creativity inbetween which afffects ss, choreo, interpretation etc. SO I think I am understanding how Chan's skating skills/inbetweens can affect his marks positively.
