Jason wasn't at this event. It was talk about Jason and Kolyada's skating.
I wasn't doing the comparisons. I mentioned in this thread not long ago that there is no need for a fan war between both Jason and Mikhail. And you are right, Jason is not here. So no comparison needs to be made.But Jason has nothing to do with whether Misha K. is scored fairly at this event. He still wasn’t at this event. Why bring his name up at random? I don’t bring up Misha K’s name at random when talking about Jason’s scores.
For me, if posters want to compare Jason and Misha, they can do in two weeks.
otherwise, Jason is so important, he’s talked about at events where he didn’t even skate
I agree and I apologize, I did not mean to look like I was arguing with you, as you were just explaining the OP.I wasn't doing the comparisons.

No need to apologize. It was more of me just mentioning in general that I didn't do the comparisons. I am also looking forward to seeing them. They are both excellent skaters. And as you mentioned, comparisons can be made at the final.I agree and I apologize, I did not mean to look like I was arguing with you, as you were just explaining the OP.
I am looking forward to all the skaters at the GPF. Congrats to Misha K and Jason who qualified after this competition
Is there such a war? I hope not. The battles are with people who would rather have the TES as final scores it seems. And they also have problems with GOE. Of course, it's easier to NOT be upset when your fave is the one who did not get a call that seems like should've been given judging by looking at the screen and whatever angles and replays we get. I'm guilty of that too perhaps. Still, even without the PCSs and GOEs, it would still be about some skaters *cough* Brown *cough* being "overscored" and oh, the Injustice, because when you're upset about your fave not getting the scores you wanted, it's easy to attack other skaters' scores and abilities.Yeah, I don’t really care for the fan war between Jason and Kolyada’s fans.
I guess? But so often people make it personal...and attack the skaters personality. I know a lot of people don't, but those who do can be awful.
Or perhaps I'm too sensitive? I'd hate to go on the ice, try my absolute best - yes, even with crummy technique - win a medal and be accused of everything from insufferable conceit to actual full-on cheating (I refuse to believe Moris is deliberately doing salchows for all his quads, yes he can't do the quad toe correctly, but there's a BIG difference between that and actually suggesting that he's knowingly and maliciously doing it - such suggestions lead to Adelina situations, where the skater themself is the hated one, the one who gets the death threats and name calling).
And while I like Jason a lot, I'm uncomfortable with this idea the there's only ONE type of artistry. I know he works very hard and it's shows, but other skaters work hard too. Like do people honestly think the quad jumpers just rock up to practice do a couple of jumps and leave?
Should Moris have won? I guess not, but is he devoid of talent or ability? Also no. I enjoyed him.
It's exhausting to always have to wonder when you like a skater "Oh if I post something nice about them are people going to laugh and judge and think I'm a crappy person too"?
I meant that he originally skated for Russia. Even in seniors. He changed countries because Russia had so many skaters he wouldn't be probably going to Championships like, almost never, and now he goes all the time. He was born in Russia, he lives and trains there. Only a flag next to his name changed, nothing else. I mean that judges probalby treats him like they would any other Russian skater due to these facts.He is not skating for Russia, Russia just lost a gold medal (is what I meant). For me, he's Georgian, I have no clue what ethnicity these people are for the most part.
You're asking what happened to Kazuki? But you're "pleased for Misha." Huh? At least Kazuki performed his sp and skated clean, and was in first place going into the fp, without humongous gifts from the judges. The judges clearly held up Kolyada in the sp, and also gave him too much in the fp overall. Anyone else, skating with that many errors in both programs, would not be getting so much GOE. Neither program was pleasing to watch with all of Kolyada's errors, when we know he doesn't have to make them. Why he makes these errors is another story. Of course, Kolyada is an exceptional skater. But I don't accept the judges deciding that Kolyada deserves to consistently be held up because he has great talent, when he can't ever seem to skate a clean program. Sure, when he does land his jumps perfectly, he looks gorgeous. But that's all the more reason he should be able to land all of his jumps with quality. I find what happened at this event unacceptable. But then, no one else stepped up to take full advantage of Kolyada's very poor showing.What happened to Kazuki, though? He’s got the full package
The Nureyev free skate was amazing. He should definitely have kept it. I also thought he looked pretty ill at ease. I really love his skating though.I think Mikhail Kolyada is amazing, but is it just me, or did he look like he was not having a great time in Rostelecom? I was not feeling the chill and lighthearted vibe compared to what I used to see from him the past season. If it were me, I preferred the Nureyev free skate more for Kolyada.
