    I think it is unfair to Adelina to have all this vitriol tossed at her.
    Don't forget Mao.

    I haven't seen the skates yet and I just very may disagree with the judging itself/result....but I definitely don't agree with Adelina getting all this vitriol. She's a sweet girl and great person.

    Scoring is the least of it.

    Billions gone where during the construction
    Undocumented disposal of hazardous/construction waste
    Environmental damage to Sochi area
    Unpaid foreign workers deported before being paid
    Shoddy construction
    Unfinished hotel rooms
    Yellow water
    LGBT forced back into the closet
    Pussy Riot attacked by their own fellow Russians (who were hired as protection for the Games)
    All protest relegated to areas miles away from the foreign press in Sochi
    Audiences who have now given vivid new meanings to the words/phrases "partisan" and "unsportsman-like behavior"

    Unfair scoring is the least of it.

    YES, here I am! You can say anything, her programm was more difficult than Caro and Yuna. Yuna's spins were slow and,well, the programm was not particularly special. Caro, well, easier jumps, spins weaker, and,again, a might be one of the minority who hates her Bolero...
    You go girl!

    Obviously the ISU doesn't want to do anything to this problem.

    To me she earned it. She had a huge edge in BV, spin GOE, and overall TES. Adelina's PCS was high but she would have won with Caro's, Mao's or Julia's PCS also. Yuna never needed 7 triples because no one decent ever did that many before. Tonight someone did, with superior spins.

    And the thing is, Russia has basically doomed their skaters for the next quadrennial, so skaters like Julia and the likes who might have peaked in Pyongyang can kiss their gold medals good bye. Nevermind if they deserve it or not.

    Don't mistake vitriol against judging for vitriol against Adelina. I didn't watch the FS myself, but 150 with a minus GOE makes absolutely no sense.

    I would never blame a skater for bad judging, it's not their fault, but there has to be some accountability on this issue.

    I agree. Adelina won on technical score. The judges are no less decent than viewers, or forumers.

    BTW, COP was not invented by russians.

    Actually, you're right. The level of blatant bad scoring is just a reflection of a society and system that is terribly mired.

    Adelina's PCS

    9.18
    8.96
    9.43
    9.50
    9.43

    I cannot believe this. Did she really skate like (or better than) Kim in Vancouver? Did Kim skate so much worse than in Vancouver?

    I don't know. I still think Slutskaya being robbed of her gold in 2002 is a bigger scandal.

    I hope this does end up resulting in getting rid of anonymous judging though.

    Yes! Mao was absolutely lovely, and probably the highlight of the night for me!

    I just don't think that so many different threads, all saying basically the same thing (Corrupt Russians, etc, etc), need to be started.

    Why shouldn't Yuna have to do 7 triples to win like everyone else?
