    And now I want Gracie to fail just because I can't stand this praising any more. Please, stop! I like Gracie's style and I don't want to start hating her just because someone is pitching her in her every post. Is Gracie's team paying you or what?

    And saying that Yulia is going downwards? Really? She's 3 years younger than Gracie and has plenty room to grow. The same is true for Gracie.

    But, please, stop this Gracie worshipping thing you are doing.

    I will say too that Gracie Gold is not a prepubescent ballerina like a lot of the Russian girls. It is hard to say how far she'll go, but she clearly has the goods to be a world champion.

    That's actually my main point in favor of Gracie/against Yulia. Gracie is in great athletic shape, in an adult woman's body. You can see she's hard as a rock. So I think she has more potential longevity. Like I would bet more on her being able to peak at the next Olympics tham most of the other female skaters on the scene right now.

    I thought her delusions were funny at first, but now....I really think Sky needs help. No sane person can be that delusional. 250?!! Yuna's score in Vancouver was inflated to me and she topped out at 228. But Gracie's going to score 250? So I'm assuming she will hit 85-90 in SP, and 160 in LP by adding a 3A's and some quad jumps.

    if Yuna can score close in 250+ what makes Gracie cannot ?

    and I said Gracie's beauty is just a bonus
    no need to get intimidated
    Instead of comparing her to Yulia and Yuna and getting everyone riled up (and annoyed with you)
    why not just say what you have to say about Gracie, without going too crazy?

    (and why all the sudden comparisons to yuna btw?)
    Gold and Kim do not have the same body type. They also have different jumping techniques, although they both result in very big jumps.
    Gracie is missing one thing, she has yet to express true musicality.
    And while she has really improved DRAMATICALLY with the changing of her programs,
    she has a way to go.

    It's not wrong for a fan to admit that... You come off as someone who REELS at the mention that Gracie isn't the gold standard. She's on an upward climb. You can't go up if you have nothing to improve on.

    Gracie is really lady-like, and has all the curves! And that's great for her! But saying that Yulia is already going downwards? For now we have no idea which direction Yulia will go once the puberty strikes, so making predictions is stupid. Time will show how she will manage her growth. Besides, having the 'right' body is not that is needed. And Yulia is well known for her determination and seriousness.

    But as it is for now - she's progressing largely with her emotionality and presentation. And I'm not saying that Gracie is not! Both of them are good!

    The time will be the best judge!

    I bought the facade for awhile but it's clear that he/she isn't a Gracie fan. No true fan would attempt to bring such constant negative attention onto their fave. It's an anti in disguise, and I'm pretty sure their fave is Julia. If you read their non-Gracie posts, they maintain an air of realism and cynicism about other skaters, yet magically when it comes to Gracie that changes to nonsensical "optimism" (if you can even call it that). FAKE.

    I heard that USFS proposed an additional PCS criteria: "Barbi doll looks". Hope it happens this quad, for Gracie's sake.

    Can't we just enjoy them for who they are now in this moment. I don't understand the point of discussing their body parts and type. To me its kinda weird and makes me very uncomfortable at times. Let nature do her thing and leave it at that. Ill say again...I know plenty of girls in their 20's with similar stature to Yulia. What's the big deal? If Yulia matures over the next two years when she hits Gracie's current age she'll be hitting her peak with a full season ahead of her to master an Olympic caliber routine, if she even wants to continue that far. Once again Yulia's age is timed out perfect to support growth issues for the next two to three years. Just in time for 2018. I'm sure Gracie will be much more interested in 'Hollywood' and all her modeling contracts by then anyway. I'm quite glad when Yulia went to a high society Hollywood type event that she said it was her first and her last. That's character!

    haha I actually think Gracie looks a LOT like Betty Draper. She should def consider a Mad Men themed gala performance.

    Of course she does! It's likely that we could easily have four different ladies WC winners over the next quad. Their all kind of on an even field. That's why it's going to be so fun.

    They should call it "Gracie" rule.
