Good guys only win in movies
Yulia said herself: ' I had no chance of winning the world championship in Japan againt Asada, even if I did clean Salchow.' (not sure about my grammar, but you get the picture).
But she said that not about judging. She obviously meant that Asada skated very well.
For me it's not a crime by any means. There was a big hype in Russia. I would assess the ratio pro-con Sotnikova as 70-30 even among "russkie". With thousands of posts 30% is a lot. And haters said directly: "no chances for you now in Japan and in 2018 in Korea". It is easy to say: "just dismiss". Wiser person would think but be silent. But when you are 15 year old and as direct as Yulia she just says what she thinks and I would never blame her for that.
