    Lipnitskia's score is about right for what she did. Sotnikova should be a point or two behind Kostner.

    Forget Julia. Other Russian gurl is crazy overscored and she's even less artistic.

    I would like you read some facts before whining:

    1. there was no russian/soviet judge on the panel
    2. she was even gievn -3 on her spin, that was a disgrace

    How come was the bias possible when the judges are not all Russians?

    I agree about Sotnikova, I thoroughly disagree about Julia:

    1) She did flutz, and didn't get called on it.

    2) She fell (a downgraded fall at that) and her PCS was 33.08. In the team SP her clean SP got 33.51. At Euros where she went clean, her SP PCS was 31.91.

    Was she 6 points better than Gracie?

    OK, no Russian. I get it. Then, why do those non-Russian judges grade in favor of Russians?

    Um, there are non-Russian judges who are quite possibly in cahoots with the Russians and still give them "Russian judge" scores. You can tell from the scores.

    e.g. Julia getting a 9.25 for Performance when all other judges gave her 7.75-8.50.

    And Sotnikova received PCS of 9.50, 9.25, 9.75, 9.50, 9.75 from a non-Russian judge. I'm sure, whoever they are, they're collecting a lovely little paycheque signed by Putin himself.

    She did flutz. It's a travesty her 3Z+3T was marked just 0.4 shy of Kim's. Even the landing of the lutz was shaky, and almost under-rotated.

    To me, the scoring was OK except for all the +3 and +2 GOEs that Adelina raked in. Her elements were fine, but not better than Yuna's.

    Julia benefitted from being a pre-event gold medal contender. Even with the fall they didn't mark her down much from where they expected her to be.

    Gracie's marks were OK, a little on the generous side if anything, IMHO.

    Kostner was magnificent. I have no problem with her being up there alongside Kim.
