We seem to be wearing out some of our other topics du jour as we anxiously await World's, so I'd like to bring up something new.
I was listening to Eurosport coverage of Europeans yesterday (don't worry - no spoilers). I know the commentators on Eurosport get bashed over there just like we in the states tend to criticize our own line up of commentators. I just find listening to something DIFFERENT to be a refreshing change LOL!!
They were explaining stuff about the COP - most of which has already been discussed at length around here. But they raised a couple of points I thought were interesting. Don't know if I agree or not with these points, but thought they would make for interesting discussion.
They contended that COP:
* Raises interesting possibilities for a more effective World Ranking system of the skaters.
* Raises possibilities for a meaningful World Record notation based on scores - not just number of medals won, etc.
Ideas on how these might actually come into being?
