    The US men make interesting reading:

    Dornbush
    Aaron
    Brown
    Abbott
    Farris
    Rippon

    Consider also that Jason and Joshua's last season results are all Junior, which give fewer ranking points.

    I'm surprised Dornbush is as high as he is. And for all the people complaining about Aaron, he's still way up there - ahead of Abbott. I wonder what the point difference between Abbott and Farris is and whether Farris would have been ahead had he been able to skate at CoR.

    Abbott 1782 points
    Farris 1707

    (Links to the ISU charts showing the points are in post #134 on the previous page of this thread.)

    I read June 27th somewhere. That's not very reliable but it was on the internets so it must be true

    USFS officially has said (more than once) that the date is Jun 27.

    If a host picks a top seed can that top seed refuse.

    For example. If Canada picks Yulia. What if she says she would rather go to China.

    Strategy maybe? Like how federations kept their team event assignments top secret until the last minute -- you know, to ensure that the competition wasn't so predictable.

    It might have to do with the new proposal at the Congress, about the juniors age.

    Yulia is the top seed. She can name her preferences, which will be honored. I don't see why Skate Canada would want her anyway, since she would be stiff competition for Osmond, who needs a podium placement to boost her standings. Of the top 3 seeds, Gold is probably the most vulnerable.

    Attendance and exposure I am thinking. I'm not sure if the field can be made weak enough for Osmond to podium.

    Just curious, what are people's predictions for how the events will be doled out between Lipnitskaia, Pogorilaya, and Gold?
    Gold obviously for SA, but other than that, I have no idea. Lip or Pogo for RC? Or neither?

    I'm hoping:
    Lip - CoR, SC
    Pog - CoC, TEB
    Gold - SA, NHK

    Although I'm guessing:
    Lip - CoR, NHK (Russia is where she can rely on an easy win, and NHK she can build her popularity in Japan)
    Pog - SC, TEB (She'll probably get the rough end of the stick, but she had a good experience in TEB last year, and it's a good idea to present Pogo to NA audiences)
    Gold - SA, CoC (USFSA will probably want to give her the greatest chance to make the GPF)
