also, purposely or not, you are detracting from the main topic of discussion. you don't need to analyze another skater's step sequence to analyze adelina's, so why keep talking about it? make a thread about yuna's step sequence and how it was deserved, and people will debate that one there or not.
Her LP step sequence is significantly shorter than her SP step sequence. That means there's inherently less time to pad out the sequence and attempt more than the minimum of all of the different steps and turns in each direction; any edge mistakes that change the type of turn/step you're doing will be more prone to reducing the Level.
Cup of Russia II Rostelecom Perm 2009- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_327e4ktyQ Two 3+3Ls, 7 triples. 3T-2T-2T
2010 JGP Austria- 3Lz-3L, 2A-3T and 4 other clean triples.
2011 Russian Nationals- 7 clean triples, same content as Austria
2013 TEB- 6 triples, two 3Fs, no pops, no step outs
Near clean skates pre-Sochi
2014 Nationals, one <<, that's it.
2014 Euros, step out of lutz, UR on 3L.

Honestly who cares? We know it was judging in her favour and a level 3 wouldn't have affected the results.
The competition is done. Sequences and levels are called incorrectly all the time. The amount of effort you've put into analyzing Sotnikova's sequence, while interesting in the context of how footwork is marked, is inconsequential in the grand scheme of things.
so what exactly IS the rule? is it up to interpretation, or does anyone here who actually judges know what the rule is for sure? or any choreographers, skaters who work with choreographers obviously have to aim for something, otherwise get dinged every time they skate..

I feel like I've accomplished something, but I have no idea what
Anyone care to explain which of these items are "turns' and which are "steps"
