Yeah, they're just too weak on jumps/throws. Lifts, spins, and the performance of the program are fine, but they're always falling! Well, actually the spins are a bit far apart but they aren't BAD.

The Shnapirs looking bad in warmup
All four pairs were painful to watch. It more like an ongoing train wreck than a splat fest. All I kept thinking was, this is like ice skating equivalent of flop sweat. Hope that things pick up.

Ice Network must not be live. L/S just now taking the ice. Now I can't read along online or I'll be spoiled. Wonder why the delay?
Scratch that. I saw that post above lead with a comment about them and I thought it was a pbp so I stopped reading, I see now it was about the warm up.
