    There is a video floating around that shows both sequences side by side (looking for it now).

    Kim's sequence is like a good 10 seconds longer than Adelina's. I thought that was strange, but it kind of makes sense now. Doing more steps will probably take more time.

The whole false "artist" vs "technician" dichotomy got started as a way to explain away how such an ugly skater as Sotnikova could have won by 5 points. Again, Sotnikova is a laughing stock. She will go down in history as the most controversial women's figure skating champ in history.
    I think Sotnikova is much prettier than most skaters with nice build and long limbs, instead of having long upper body.

    What is this 'Everyone" about her skating skill? Why don't someone just write a paper and sort ourt skaters' skating skill order so they don' t have to go to competitions to fight for medals. Everything can be decided on paper and by fans who have numerous time to watch.

    For me, it's even wierder now, how on earth Tech panel misjudged Yuna's stsq level, given that there were 20 more movements in hers than Sot's. It does not need extra 30 secs to figure out which one's more complicated.

    And somebody is showing us what it means by "ultimate trolling" once again.
    It is a small detail in their overall scores, but given how blatantly wrong it is (I do not know how to analyse step sequences like BoP, but I could plainly see that Yuna's was longer and more intricate), it does cast doubt on the overall judging. As people have said, it is the 5 point spread that is so suspicious. It is really unfortunate because I think Yuna specifically did a really great job improving her interpretation from the last Olympics. Technically Piano Concerto in F has one more of her triples in combination (and in the second half), but in terms of her components Ninio was vastly improved. Perhaps keyly, instead of throwing a double onto the end of her last triple Salchow, she did this dramatic choreographic halting position. She was always fluid and musical, but before 2013 worlds she had kind of a vacant presentation.

    She has 5 types of turns in both directions - Rocker, Bracket, Twizzle, Loop, Three
    She had 5 types of steps in both directions - Toe hop, Toe step, Chasse, Mohawk, Choctaw
    She has full body rotation covering at least 1/3 of the pattern in total for each rotational direction.
    She most definitely has upper body movements for at least 1/3 of the pattern.
    She has 3 different combinations of three difficult turns executed with a clear rhythm.

    This footwork sequence is clearly Level 4.
    This needs to be shown to the media, ASAP. The writers at The Wire, perhaps?

    No, it was started to "uncover the truth," not be objective. Rather than explaining Adelina's high marks from 8 judges, the OP assumes each is either biased or unfit to judge.

    But is that an assumption or a conclusion?

    No DMD, NO. The OP is not questioning GOE given by 8 judges.

    OP is questioning levels of stsq, judged by "3 tech panels".

    By the way, 2 out of 3 tech panels are related to Russia. It is not at all outrageous to question whether those were biased or not, given that Russian skaters got way with some technical flaws like wrong edge, which was determined by , again, those "3" tech panels.

    And within given analysis, OP proved his argument that tech panel made wrong judgement on stsq levels. I do not find any subjectivity in his "analysis" itself.

    All BoP did was list the steps of each skater. It is amazing to me how stubborn you are.

    and note that DMD has nothing to say when actual data is posted, i.e. clamoring about Yuna's step sequence, which was done.

    and this.

    BoP - thanks for listing out another skater's step sequence, even when it was not required. What else do the adelina ubers have to say next?

    Your not fooling anybody - your a Yunabot. And the truth does not constitute an insult

    This highlights the number one problem with Yunabots. They are so obsessed by Kim, that they regard all other skaters as 'enemies'. I don't.

    Analysis after analysis, what BoP is saying about the scoring resonates with a lot of peeps here.

    When you’re talking about the judging, how can you conveniently take the tech panel, which has so much power to set the baselines for scorning, out of the picture?

    Considering the bogus calls on, Sotnikova’s 3-3< (and flutz) and the step level, at a minimum, the four judges who scored 141-145 might not be completely irrational since the range would’ve gone down to 135-140 with the correct calls. That leaves the five scoring 151-155. We know for a fact the two judges are patently biased (or cheater). Are you suggesting that the rest three could’ve not been possibly influenced by the wife of the Russian Fed and the power behind?

    Someone, I think who is way more authoritative and credible than you are, already debunked your last straw-judges invariably judge independently.

    From a Dartmouth economics professor’s WSJ article--

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/...gets-it-wrong/

    The reverse happens in figure skating. Not only does a figure skater with a compatriot judge get a higher score from that judge, but they also get higher scores on average from the other judges, too (compared with events when they are not represented on the panel). This is evidence of vote trading, of the kind that occurred at the Olympics in 1998, 2002, and (allegedly) is occurring in 2014. Most of the benefit of having a compatriot judge actually comes through the vote trading. Skaters even benefit from having compatriot judges on the panels of other events, which is consistent with the fact that the vote trading we know about is often across events.
    I don't think you have ever responded to that?

    No. This is explaining that a Russian controlled tech panel:

    1. Inflated the level of Adelina's step/turn sequences and deflated Yuna's to the tune of a 1.2 point total difference in base value.

    2. Missed an edge call on a Adelina (a notorious flutzer) and an UR on the same combination (3lz-3T in the FS).

    The rest can be blamed on the judges and their ridiculous GOEs and PCS scores. (lol)

    BTW, Thanks BoP for your incredible efforts here!
