I agree. This may be the last yr that we see the French on the podium at Worlds.

I think it is. They will be given the bronze as a retirement gift (or maybe they will deserve it) and then if they are wise they will get the heck out as by next year Weaver & Poje, Bobrova & Soloviev, Shibutanis, and possibly others will be leapfrogging them if they dare remain.

It could be Dortmund W/L all over again except I hope P/B deserve it :shuffle:

I can see W/P possibly overtaking them if they stay but not B/S.

Weirder things have happened. Just look at the Shibs winning bronze last year - no one expected that.

The sin will be if B/S overtake W/P by Sochi.

If she improves her posture and they improve their footwork sequences, it's not out of the question. They get really PC's. They're really fast across the ice.

Then I will have to just poke both of my eyes out. They started the push for them at Skate Canada 09. I just find them so unappealing.

well like every year at the start it seems that there is a big push for them but the programs turn out so terrible that the judges just give up:lol:

Besides her shitty posture, what do you have against them? (I'm a big fan of both B/S and W/P)

The sin will be if I/K don't overtake B/S by Sochi :shuffle:

For me, they are unwatchable, totally unappealing..too over the top...I'm sure that they are lovely people, in fact, an elite ice dancer's mom told me how nice she is, but I just don't like their skating.

My issue with both B/S and I/K is that they look so weak technically. I know they're doing difficult elements, but they usually look like their struggling through them. Teams like W/P and V/M (not to mention a bunch of others I would put into this group) are able to make the difficult look easy, and that is what should be rewarded. The best teams make the audience forget about the elements.

Also, I find B/S really boring artistically. At least, IMO, I/K have a bit of spark.

Costuming is pretty horrible, too.

Did you still talking about Gillis-Porie FD? I love t and i think they could be very strong team. They have similar temperaments and look like they have fun together. With Dean creativity this made me there fan :)
As for W-P. I dont like SD, but great FD. But after G-P FD W-P look a little boring. My favorute Malade - at GPF :)

pani .. I think they're comparing W/P to B/S.

I liked G/P's FD as a show program. It was very enjoyable..but thought it was lacking as a competitive program. I liked their energy and power , and agree they have potential.... But I thought they should probably be somewhere in the mix with the 2 or 3 couples below them..not up at 62 ? for the SD and 100 (!!!) for the FD.

Even Tracey Wilson had to make the excuse that the judges must have marked G/P so high in the SD because they had to skate so early , they really stuck out among the lowest ranked skaters.. but the judges aren't supposed to make that mistake.

Paul may be a very excellent skater from the hips down ( and he's strong ) ... but Andrew is very far above him in posture, expression, musicality, being as one with his partner..and Piper is nowhere near the skater Kaitlyn is , right now.

One very cute , clever program should not put them 16 points above the 2 or 3 couples below them and only 11 behind W/P.
