Yeah, Aliev was shamelessly robbed both in TES and PCS - all for the sake of pushing Brown to 2nd place. When quadless skater with several pops to boot is winning over skater with 4 clean rotated landed quads in both programs, who is also have great SS and performance - there is something inherently wrong with that :scratch3:
I don't agree. Dima was fantastic in the Short, less so in the Free. Still great to watch, but definitely not shamelessy robbed compared to Brown. Brown was robbed in PCS compared to Nathan, but okay I suppose nobody minds that here. I was just pleased Dima did so well, he had two great skates but his short was the best - and he was second on that one. Brown may not have quads but his skating is exquisite. Dima's skating is quite close to that (really enjoyed watching him) but to say he was robbed, just isn't true. Sorry. I'm one of those people who think it is utterly wrong to get high PCS just because there are quads. This whole 'no quads thing' means nothing as far as PCS is concerned, or it shouldn't. By the way, I'm not American, Russian, Japanese or anything. I loved Dima's performances and am happy that he's back on the scene. And glad he got a medal which was well deserved. But he wasn't robbed of anything.
