I have to bump this thread and say that Weaver and Poje were robbed of the gold at NHK their FD was breathtaking, the Shibs were their usual boring crap self skating to the same thing as last year, people say they are great technically thats because they are skating to the same thing as last year.

W-P could win, but they had dedaction. So its OK.
I hope they will take medal at GPF. It will in Canada hope this will help them. I like this two.

I adore this team!! I love their SD and FD, I've already watched both like 3 times. I wanted them to win so bad at NHK but silver is good too, I hope they continue to do well!

Andrew's twizzle mistake in the SD cost them the title.

Their FD is really growing on me.

Such a shame.......I was rooting for them. I hope they do better next time. Too bad about the twizzles.

They were great in their FD in Japan.
While I wish they had won, it's probably all good- they are competitive with super- clean Shibutanis even with a few mistakes; the scores are good and the year is young.

I thought they did really well!! It must be frustrating to be so close to gold though, and to have a deduction :(

Does anyone know if Weaver/Poje are together? They sure make a cute couple, together or not. They're obviously really close!

Really a wonderful skate at NHK! Loved their passion and attack in their FD. They have improved so much and I can tell how hard they are working. Wishing them all the best. Just a beautiful couple.

It's extremely impressive how fast Weaver/Poje have been developing.

They put down two extremely strong performances at 2011 Worlds, where I strongly believe they should have medalled.

But I didn't care much about their programs last season.

This season both programs are great. Voidy with tons of character. Thank god they are with Camerlengo who definitely can deliver on that front.

SD is too open for my liking but at least it has heaps of Latin character, which can't be said about most SDs this season. ;)

FD I wasn't too keen on at first but after they delivered this amazing performance at NHK, I've changed my mind. It's also a little open but it has tons of transitional movements all the time. It never stops, there are no empty spots, something is happening constantly.

They just floored me. They look so polished for this early in the season.

And technically they are so so good. Deep edges, extremely strong and effortless lifts.

I am absolutely fuming that they didn't get the gold at NHK and by such a small margin too. :mad:

They were just heads and shoulders above anyone else in the FD.

I think they should have edged Shibutanis out on the GOE. Shibs definitely had the best twizzles but W/P were much stronger on the other elements, as far as quality of the execution is concerned.

At least the judges went with them on the PCS.

Must be so frustrating to be so close, especially knowing there was a silly lift deduction. Argh!

Which lift received the deduction?

The one that went over the time limit. :saint:

You just made a great point.

Before the next ISU congress, I'll suggest to the Ice Dance Technical Committee members to indicate that in the protocols.

I guess the skaters can check that themselves on a recording but we can be talking tenths of a second here and simply marking it on a protocol somehow wouldn't be difficult to implement.

I always wonder about couples.
Going by their body language in the KNC I would say no they aren't together off ice.They seem formal Andrew didn't kiss her cheek just sort of shook her hand .JMO.
