    Not exactly. His way of hinting a strong disagreement onto the judging. Dick might have said it quite differently.

    Were the judges way too generous with Lipnitskaia's SP scores?

    Don't you think judges were way too generous to Lipnitskaia's SP?

    Forget them being generous to JLip. What was with Adenlina's score

    If she hadn't fallen on the triple flip the judges would have placed her in first place no doubt. 65 points and sitting at 5th is still a very generous score of Julia.

    Is that called "home advantage"?

    She had the best spins of the top 3 and jumped big. Maybe not as fast and smooth as the other two but she presented the choreography with conviction IMO. I still don't like how tired she looks at the end of her program and think it might not bode well for her LP.

    She looks like she flutzed there too and it wasn't called. That makes me very excited for the LP because maybe Adelina's usual flutz will be overlooked.

    So, is giving a high score to Russians the judges' "purely voluntary" appreciation to Russia's hosting the Games?

    travesty.

    what's even worse is the fact that adelina beat carolina in the short program when carolina's program was more technically difficult. the judging is so over the top for the russians- it's a disgrace. someone needs to speak to the judges and tell them they can't do that in the long and that they have reign in adelina's score.

    It is "Skating while Russian" WHILE skating in Russia.
