I don't like joining in the ubers fighting and I like your eloquent style of writing- but I have to disagree on that point. Though Mao does tend to overthink her 3A, she never forgets her audience. All throughout the quad, she's performed substantially well with more warmth and openness. Her worst season (2011/12) showcased beautiful programs that showcased her style and personality and her exhibition programs are anything but devoid of human emotion. The way you generalise and pigeonhole and 'psycho-analyse' these other skaters are a little offensive to me as a fan, and your eloquence only makes the insult worse. And to be perfectly honest, nobody will ever fully understand the emotional depth of of Adios Nonino but Piazzolla. She's will skate to it the way its relevant to her, or just because its beautiful music, or maybe because she wants to skate another tango. Who knows? You are neither David Wilson, Astor Piazzolla, nor Yu Na Kim to know what's best for her Olympic performance or what she should do to win gold.
And finally, drop the pretentious crap. This is figure skating. If it's not visual it's not worth ****. You can analyse all you want, but that's just chatting bubbles.
