not even that. DMD's statement calls to the issue of, (we are) assuming the judging is corrupt, and THEN looking at the scoring. But that's actually NOT what this thread is.

That being said, now that we have Adelina's step sequence broken down, it NOW serves to look at Yuna's (and other skaters) step sequence - which was also called incorrectly. Either the tech panel is incompetent, or something else is going on.

I'm not stating that the Tech panel was corrupt (just implying it, lol).

To DMD, gmyers, nadya and mao88 - the world is round, you cannot catch gonorrhea from a toilet seat AND adelina was grossly overmarked in sochi.

Without reading through this entire thread, my only comment is that the analysis shows everything that is wrong with COP and how it didn't fix anything that was wrong with figure skating judging. It is impossible, in my opinion, for the technical caller to do the kind of analysis BOP did in the few minutes they have in a competition. And even if they made every effort, they are likely to make mistakes. This leaves the judging open to manipulation because, well, it could have been a mistake or just open to interpretation. The system is way too complex. How hard was it to say that Yagudin's footwork in Salt Lake, for instance, provided support for a 6.0 mark in presentation? Great footwork used to be exciting or even explosive. Now it is mostly labored, twisting and too long. It can be admired when done really well, like for instance, Mao's in Sochi, but it doesn't pack the same punch or add that much to the artistry, in my opinion. Now that COP has been exposed in Sochi as being just as subject to manipulation as the old system, and less subject to accountability, it is just one more nail in the coffin of the sport of figure skating
