    What's with all the 6.0's???

    Is it just me, or does it seem like there are tons of 6.0's being given out this year at Worlds? It used to be you would very rarely see a skater get a 6.0 and this year it seems that the top finisher in each round has gotten at least one, and sometimes skater who did not even finish first got one! What's up?????

    I guess they are giving the ordinal system a big send-off, LOL!

    The judges are certainly giving out 6.0's like there is no tomorrow... but wait! Indeed there in no tomorrow for a 6.0! I think they are trying to fit in as many as possible before the full switch to CoP. So far, Sasha has gotten 4 6.0's for pres in short (may be legit, I haven't seen it); T&M got one for pres in short (a stretch); S&Z got 2 for tech and 10 for pres (their program was good, and I would not have been surprised by a couple of 6.0's for pres, but not like that across the board); P&T and T&M each got 1 for pres (no way were those 6.0 programs); Plushy got 4 for pres in free (not his best skate, and certainly there should not have been a 6.0 with a fall); finally, N&K got one in OD (I like N&K, but their OD is NOT a 6.0 quality). Go figure!

    Ooops, Kat, a typo (a Freudian one perhaps?). Just corrected it.

    Remember how we complained about COP b/c it was new and we didn't understand it? Well now that I'm used to COP, I can't stand the 6.0 system. LET IT DIE ALREADY!!!

    The way it seems to be going, we may see something truly historic (and it's not just the record amount of 6s being thrown out). At this rate, for the first time in skating history, we just may see --

    A 6.1!![SIZE=3]

    I mean, really, why not? The marks are only for placement value anyway and if they're going to throw them out randomly (and at this point meaninglessly) anyway, may as well acknowledge a true 6.0 program with a 6.1, since at this Worlds a 6.0 seems to be the equivelant of a 5.8.....

    On those 6.0's....

    Especially in ladies, mens and pairs there seems to be a lot more depth of good skaters this year than in previous years. That's a wonderful thing!! Is it possible some of the 6.0's are happening just because the judges are getting boxed in?

    At any rate, I'm right in there with the Bring On The COP crowd.

    Michelle did not get 4 6.0s in the short, Sasha did.
    Actually, the judges also apparently awarded Michelle 4 6.0s as well - they were lowered to 5.9s due to the timing deduction in her program. So for the purposes of counting how eager the judges seem to be to hand out 6.0s right now, you can count hers as well. But anyway, yeah, they are handing them out like candy. (Sasha's wow factor in her SP is very high, so I'm not really surprised that she saw some....) The one's that puzzled me the most were Plushy's. He's a great skater, but since when does a program with a fall count as a perfect program. No matter how small the disruption is, falls DO disrupt the flow of the program.

    It was a JOKE!!! Those judges just did figure skating in.

    They "boxed" themselves in, I wonder if it was intentional?
    I guess the COP scares them, they are actually going to have to judge the skating.
    My heart breaks for those poor, deluded judges.

    Now Michelle gets her six sixes in the long program and she makes history by getting the last six of figure skating.

    FINAL COUNT IN!!!!!!!!!

    Final 6.0 count, within a +/- margin of .01 percent

    43!!! (My estimate was 45, not bad eh?)

    RESULT:

    Men's - Short - Zilch Long - 4

    Ladies' - Short - 4 Long - 7

    Pairs' - Short - 1 Long - 14

    Ice Dance - Original - 1 Free Dance - 12


    Total - 43

    Statistical breakdown :
    Lowest placing to obtain "perfect" score: 3rd Place
    Highest placing obtaing "perfect" score : 1st Place (well,d-uh)
    Biggest 6.0 loser - Men's short program
    Biggest 6.0 winner - Pairs' long program
    Discipline with funniest emotional outburst - Ice Dance
    Discipline that tests our patience most - Ice Dance
    Discipline that obviously needs to shape up - Men's
    Discipline that needs to learn how to "share" 6.0's - Pairs'
    Country that got a great send off for one of it's teams - Germany
    Country whose displays of surprise and utter joy at receiving so many 6.0's are fooling absolutely nobody anymore - Russia

    :\ :sheesh:

    I keep thinking it's like a close-out or "going out of business" sale! LOL!

    "All 6.0s must go now! Limited supply left...then they're gone!"
