Count me among those who are OK with Adelina winning, but not OK with the judging.

why am I not surprised about this not being truthful about skaters.
well in that case most OGM medalist shouldn't have won.
not being truthful is same as lying and cheating in my book.
lets see you was truthful about michelle kwan, caroline zhang,
you are truthful about skaters /teams you don't want up their or win Olympic Gold medal but not the ones you want to win.
wow. public didn't see this, or maybe figure skating just swept it under rug and called it controversy.
that is another reason why U.S. public don't get behind the sport. lying(not being truthful about skaters or sport as a whole.
Image is everything even if you have to lie to portray it and get money, sponsors etc.
