    In 2002, one could naively claim that it was just rogue judges causing the problem.

    2014 shows the ISU and the Federations WANT cheating to occur, they believe it is how you do business in the sport, and even if it drives off interest, they just don't care.

    This is not my view but something a friend said as a joke :P

    Russia voted for abolition because they worried S.Korea would deny them OGM at 2018.

    S.Korea voted for its retention because they want to deny Russia OGM at 2018.

    :P

    Their hands are too short for that. If Russian ladies dominate the quad no korean dirty tricks will play.

    LOL at this. Why do the federations with no power vote for anonymous judging, that will not do any good to their skaters..That's sooo strange. And that KSU, are they planning for a revenge, they don't care about fs at all as you can see.

    It's becoming hilarious to see some of you guys going too far and conveniently assuming that Korean fed is a villan, and treating them as if somehow they already committed to an evil action even though KSF has not done anything harm to other fed/skaters. In gpf, 4cc in Korea, winners were Japanese, even when Yuna was a heavy favorite. As far as I know, there has been ZERO scandal in Korean soil. And Pyoungchang is in 4 years. NOTHING happened yet.

    I am all against anonimous judging, and deeply dissappointed at KSF's decision. But it is indeed presumptuous to assume that Korean fed will take their vengence by bribing all the judges to prevent Russians to win etc. , using anonymous judging. why, really why will they do that with their own money?

    One thing I can say for sure is that, Pyoungchang will be covered by Yuna Kim(her interviews, images etc) and all of koreans will treat her as a double gold medalist (based on their reaction and news article, and in my heart she is the double gold medalist) whether you like it or not. That may be their own way of revenge.

    That would be good to see. Yuna is a pretty lady and she has angelic features, I don't mind seeing her pictures in news about Pyoungchang.

    I only hope for fair judging. Let's bet it on 2016 meeting. Sigh.

    The motion about reverse order also failed to pass.

    Something that did pass was that the program components for dance are set to increase.
