    Yeah I rarely come here because to be honest I don't think I like these two enough in general to be called a real fan of them, but I think everyone who is basically saying now they are doomed and need to give up is both mean and slightly deluded. Weaver and Poje, while perhaps not doing quite as well as some people hoped when V/M retired, are currently at the peak of their career. They have won 2 GPF's in a row, get huge PCS and GOE from the judges, and have all the tools needed to succeed. I hope that V/M's return motivates them and that they come out stronger than ever next year, which I really believe they can. Best of luck to them

    I also think V/M`s return will only fuel them even more. You can love them or not, but these two are fighters and won`t give up so easily. I think Ice Dance is looking awesome for the Canadians, with V/M returning they will have two teams who could potentially medal at the next Olympics. This should be a first for Canada. But making that Oly team will be really, really tough now for teams like G/P, P/I, P/O and O/H.

    Yes truthfully while everyone is saying this is unfair to Weaver and Poje the teams IMO who are really going to suffer are the others you listed- Weaver and Poje's place on the team is at least safe, that's not true of the others.

    Everyone's career is declared over if there's a bit of struggle and/or they make mistakes. W/P had a bad comp? Career over. V/M are coming back? WeaPo should retire. Then wait if V/M should perhaps struggle a bit at the beginning (as has been known to happen with comebacks)? They should never have come back, they will sully their legacy, career over. SinKats were declared dead before they had even properly formed as a dance couple. That proved premature. Ashley Wagner's career was declared dead so many times I've lost count, she's still trucking on. Liza Tuk came back from setbacks. Irina Slutskaya. Maria Butyrskaya. Denkova/Staviski recovered from a bad season to become World Champs. Shibs turned momentum. Their career was delcared over a lot as well. Just yesterday Chan's career was over. Now he's a hero!

    I think it's just the (fickle) nature of parts of skating fandom in general tbh. WeaPo are very good skaters who've shown a lot of improvement and grit throughout the years. I'm sure they'll continue to work hard and will try to show their best possible skating. Everything else is out of their hands anyway.

    No panic needed! Bad day at the office! I truly admire Kaitlyn's positive comments in the K and C and support of Andrew. Ice dance has evolved even over the 2 years since Sochi. I think W/P has a handle on this. I am looking forward to a strong showing in Boston and forward thinking from there. I am an American Shibs fan BUT I am rooting for a podium 1. Weaver/Poje 2. Shibs 3. Papadakis/Cizeron.

    I think a lot of this comes from the mindset of the 6.0 era. Once a skater was being dumped by the judges, it was over, especially in ice dance, but this seems to have changed a lot. The juges are ready to reward teams if they make the necassary improvements. When the season started most people thought the World title would be between C/B and P/C and that the judges had dumped W/P, but instead C/B lost their National title and W/P won their second GPF title. IMO, ice dance became as unpredictable as Singles and Pairs. The time when one ice dance team could dominate the circuit like N/K or G/P did are over and that`s pretty exciting.
    I`m looking forward to next season and I think W/P will still be a factor for an Olympic Medal in 2018.

    Charlie White who was the commentator for the FD did not entertain for a second the notion that a bad FD meant Kaitlyn and Andrew would be in trouble for making the podium at Worlds. Not only the Shibutanis resurgence shows that ice dance rep is not the be all and end all it once was.

    Heck Chock and Bates going from a bad SD to delivering their best FD score ever shows that ice dance scores are not set in stone any more!

    Kaitlyn and Andrew have a clean slate and a new page at Worlds and the same great chance to win they had before 4ccs.

    I totally agree, finally a voice of wisdom and rationality. I can't deny I was very sad and disappointed by their FD technical execution at 4CC, but they were at that state even more I think after scores arrived. The PCS and overall expression looked solid, they have to focus on tech execution and all is still possible. I've learned not to take any results/places for granted this season in Ice Dance.

    I knew that when Virtue & Moir announced their return many people would be like: "Oh, now the true heroes are back!" However, for me, I have never been able to 'connect' with them...of course they skate good, but I don't 'get them'....I don't see such a difference between both couples, in fact I see WeaPo better than them. I'm so looking forward for seeing them succedded in Worlds!! I'm a super huge fan of them. I discoreved them 2 years ago in GPF Barcelona 2014 and they immediately took back in time to Anissina & Peizerat, I was just astounded. Apart from that, I think that the Shibutanis and Papadakis/Cizeron are just as good as WeaPo this season!! So, my wished World Podium would be 1. WeaPo 2. Papadakis/Cizeron 3. Shibutanis. I just can't stop watching their performances....Can't wait!!

    That's my dream podium for this season too! Though I don't really care about order much, just want all of them skate the best they can and smile with satisfaction
