No, she was talking about the overall FD score between V&M and P&B.

Actually, a gap of 7.71 points in the free dance score seemed a little large.

I'm surprised Flade would write this considering she is a paid employee of the ISU.

I disagree that they should've skated it next season. The grumbling by some fans that this is "same old same old" is standard, but you're hearing it in the media too. I'm sure Z&S will have them skate to something "different" next season in preparation for 2014. Even if next season's programs isn't universally well received (which, of course, many years later, people will just LOVE LOVE LOVE), they will be "protected" by a very home audience.

I agree with this. If they compete next season it'll be interesting to see what direction they go.

I was not talking about Icenetwork's article, I was referring to the Golden Skate article on the TEB FD that was linked several posts up in this thread.

The last time the old quickstep was competed was the 2002/2003 season, and 2003-2004 in Juniors. It was V&M's and D&W's first year in juniors, so they might have skated it. P&B were new seniors in 2002/2003, so they have skated it too. I don't know whether any of the 3 teams competed with it, as the dances were drawn out of the hat for the competitions, and it is a long time ago.
I decided to consider this a challenge. P/B have skated the Quickstep in competition; their 2002 GP events were the Trophee Lalique (Austrian Waltz) and Skate Canada (Quickstep). Check out this SC writeup (http://www.iceskatingintnl.com/archive/results_sk8can/sk8ca02d.htm) for details about their performance.

ETA: the Quickstep was also used at 2004 JW. So all three teams have skated it in competition, as have Pernelle Carron and Anna Cappellini (with previous partners).

I live in Europe so get to watch the Europeans skate a lot more than the North Americans.
Because of that I tend to support the European couples more.
But I do accept that Tessa & Scott are the most natural & talented Ice Dancers I have ever seen.

V/M's talent and excellence cannot be denied IMO whether one lives in Europe or North America. I am European by the way and I still think Tessa and Scott are amazing dancers and in a class of their own.:)

Well the "Ho hum" headline has been changed to "Virtue and Moir rout the dance field in France"...

Hmmmmm, now I wonder how long it took for that change to take place, what caused it and who made the decision for it to happen :lol:

I guess it wasnt so ho hum after all!

Experts seem to think that by the end of the season the program will become a masterpiece that will be iconic. I really feel that way about both UofC and Mahler. Watching the early performances there was a hint of greatness but in the World/Olys respectively you see the program at its best.

Lets hope so.

I am so excited that I will see it live at the GPF especially since I had to be away during Skate Canada.

I think I heard Tracy Wilson say that on CBC on Sunday... she's an expert, but she is biased.

Personally I love this program too, so I can understand her reasoning, but who knows.

I think it's something everyone, experts included, should wait for worlds to decide ;)

:lol: haha to be honest maybe I'm still new to figure skating but I was trying to figure out why a lot of people seemed offended by the articles. So I read them a couple of times trying to find the cryptic offensive meaning behind them. The ho-hum thing I thought was kinda rude, but I didn't see why the articles were offending at first, but when I reread them I kinda saw what others had seen.
