I feel like I need to hide here from the mean ppl who want to bury WP & hail VM return
I still believe in them & obv they wont make such mistakes @Worlds
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.
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`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.
Happy Birthday, the most handsome of them all!
I just updated their OP prior to Worlds.
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!!
