    So "absolutely not a fair decision" becomes "a matter of "fairness""
    Well I have a problem with Dai making it. mainly because I feel he's only had one good competition this year NHK. Skate America (disaster), Japan open not good (Nationals disaster) etc. Worlds wasn't brilliant either.
    So for me it was a big issue of what kind of shape Dai's actually in.

    IF we are going to talk about someone who has a body of work argument IMO it was Oda. Yes Dai beat him at NHK but Oda skated consistently well throughout..

    I'd feel differently if Dai had more than one good competition this year.

    To be frank Dai's placement on the team is a lot like Plush's. Don't get me wrong not nearly as bad or egregious but based on more on what they once were than what they are now.

    Thanks for this!

    I truly enjoy the skating of all seven of the skaters you listed.

    For that matter, according to Twitter Nagasu sent Wagner a message of support and encouragement after the decision was made. Too bad many of Nagasu's fans resorted to the opposite.

    Actually it STILL hasn't cooled off on twitter - seems like near every tweet about the 2014 US team still provokes at least 1 "Nagasu deserved it" or "hope Wagner (or Edmunds) bombs", etc.

    Adding to R.D.'s post: the tweet was from ESPN reporter @Bonnie_D_Ford -- i.e., a reliable source. (And it was retweeted by @USFigureSkating.)
    . @AshWagner2010 on conference call: " @mirai_nagasu texted me, said 'You belong on the team, good luck, love you.' ''

    Aw - Mirai's a real sweetheart. I hope she stays in and improves tremendously next season with the help of Coach Mura. Above all, I hope that she is happy, that she still loves what she is doing.

    Per rosewood on FSU, Japanese media reported that Mr. Mura is a temporary coach, and that Mirai had fallen ill before 4CC (after Nationals) and was fervently trying to recover in time. :

    For a temporary coach, I think that Mr. Mura did a heck of a job with Mirai in the short time between NHK/Rostelecom and Rostelecom/Nationals. Too bad Mirai got sick. Endurance will for sure be an issue in the FS at 4CCs if it was in the SP.

    News 2014 Olympic figure skater Ashley Wagner: Mirai Nagasu has been 'phenomenal'

    http://www.examiner.com/article/2014...een-phenomenal

    When pressed to name a specific source of comfort, she cited an unlikely person: 2010 Olympian Mirai Nagasu, who was denied a spot on the Sochi-bound team despite a bronze medal finish at nationals. Wagner called Nagasu's handling of her omission from the team "phenomenal," and revealed that shortly after the three-woman roster that features herself, Polina Edmunds and new national champ Gracie Gold was revealed, Nagasu sent Wagner a text that read "you belong on the team, good luck, love you." Wagner called Nagasu's endorsement "all I needed to feel right" about the sticky selection situation.

    @aftertherain Thank you for posting the link to that article! I'm so glad that it was like a balm on Ashley's soul - to know that Mirai is in her corner.
