    Some posters who post nothing but anti-Yuna hatred, I hope for their sake they are at least being compensated by an opposing federation or something.

    This is so typical of Yuna bots. Suddenly it's anti-Yuna hatred if someone even dare to say another girl can approach Yuna's PCS.

    Mao's PCS at GPF was 34.91 which is very close to 35. This tells me that if Yuna or Mao skate clean, their PCS is going to be at least 35. I don't see Adelina or Julia getting 35 even if they go clean. Adelina MIGHT hit 34, but that's still 1 point difference between her and Yuna/Mao. It's still ridiculous that Adelina is virtually getting the same PCS as Carolina though lol.

    If Adelina get 33+ in PCS , YuNa and Mao should get 36~37.

    Yuna hatred: strong words. Who? quote please, because I have not seen the Yuna hatred. Also, Ven before you go around accusing other posters of hating your favorite, check the posts you have written before because it is not like you very kind to......

    You're favorite Caro was beaten by Russians even she went clean so you are too busy to claim all of the top skaters will be in danger as same as Carol now, I guess that way of imagine must make you feel so much easier to accept the reality, poor honey
    Hence why the butthurt is so strong for this poster who has been boasting for over a year, nobody, not even Yu Na or Mao, can ever hope to beat a clean godly Kostner, LOL! His/her fantasy regarding Kostner has been punctured, so time to move on in desperation to pumping the likes of Lipnitskaia beating a clean Kim (ROTTTFFFLLL) even when last year this poster was saying constantly Julia was nothing thrash and should be nowhere near the Russian Olympic team and should retire.

She has crumpled under pressure before and with so many other matured skaters that are in the mix, she is bound to crumble again. She does well on home ice with all the gushing and fanfare but it's a different story in Sochi. Osmond has a good a chance as Gracie to medal. P
    You are crazy if you believe that Gold and Osmond have a similar chance. The BIGGEST difference between Gracie at competition before Nationals and Gracie at Nationals is the training plan and sports psychology piece that Frank Carroll has brought to her game. Since he didn't have a lot of time before her GP events to start working that aspect with her, it didn't really come through at SC or NHK, but they had two solid months of Carroll's training plan and method. Her focus and "eye of the tiger" look when she was announced and left the boards to take her starting place was totally different than anything I've ever seen from her, and I've been watching her a LONG time.

    First of all, I am not crazy to think that Osmond has a good of a chance as Gold. Osmond had her mind set on going to Olympics to skate her best and second she doesn't need a sport psychologist to get her through her program. She has nerves of steel. Gold needs a sports psychologist in order to get her through her programs. Sports psychologist can do so much, but when they get on the ice with the big guns, they usually falter.

    So is that why Gracie is 4-1 head to head against Osmond?

    Robin Cousins said about the difference between Rachel Flat and YuNa Kim was that the effort with Rachel was plain to see and with YuNa everything looked so easy. And Osmond? She is working for everything and it is quite visible. However, she is vivacious and that is a definite plus, but Gold is also. But then the effort is also visible with Gold as well. They are both at the beginnings of their careers and I don't see any reason why Osmond can't improve like Gold has. It is too soon to say one way or the other. Osmond had stumbled the end of last season and that carried over to the beginning of this season but then she bounced back strong at her Nationals . Forget all the hyping and dismissing; I am going to give it a year before I dismiss one and coronate the other.

    Rapid, you are the voice of reason and I agree with you but As Osmond said on our local radio station that she is not thinking about getting a medal at the Olympics but skating her best and getting in the top ten. On the other hand Gold is expecting gold and with that comes pressure, pressure she probably can't handle.

    FlattFan still hates Lipnitskaya. Have you seen the more recent posts about how he/she will stop watching the nasty leftovers once the skaters in the Sochi batch retire? Seems like he/she is being alarmist more than anything.
