When you have that ISU title next to your name you have to check yourself.

Thats a key.
Honestly, i dont think judges and technical specialists could work like a commentators at all. If skaters couldnt ask after competitions why they get low level, why technical specialist could made comments to the press? ;)
I agree, you could didnt have your favorite skaters, even if you are a judge.
I like Shehovtsova comments in TV show about FD on NTV+. She is very intellegent and knowegable person and didnt show her prefersnce at this show at all. I understand, why she is on top in judging so many years.


Newbie questions. Generally in ice dance, if a team has great technical skating skills but has only average dance techniques, would that be reflected on the score? Although great performers can compensate for any deficiency in dance technique I suppose. I know this is all very subjective, but basically I'm just asking if things like those pani mentioned above (and other dance elements) actually get reflected on the score? Where exactly? Performance/execution scores? Interpretation scores?
Judges have explanation of any part of component score. You could read it in ISU Communicaion #1522

So i think if you are not such a great dancer you will have low PERFORMANCE/EXECUTIO mark.
But its only on paper. Usually you will not see this.

Hmm... okay. I see. But if this is only on paper, I guess I shouldn't dissect this too much.:lol: Thanks for the link pani!

So did you genuinely want to know why people were weary of her or did you just want to roll your eyes and bitch at people. Dostatni (sp?) has been getting hate here for years now because people feel he shows Canton teams favourtism. It's something that happens in this sport all the time.

I've been seeing hate for her for months now and thought she had actually done something. That it's just this is :lol:.

She showed a bias for one team over another which is a mistake for someone in her position. Your :lol: makes me think this is some foreign concept to you and the reactions to it. Happens all the time, ever visit a pbp thread ;)

ON TV a saw so many Kevin Reynolds bunners in Paris and Patrick have a lot, but nothing for Tessa and Scott. Just interesting.
And Yu-Na Kim had cool bunner at WCh ;)

:lol: How about panties for Scott then? No, no, no, it would be plagiarism.

Here is my little wish list for Tessa and Scott to read before the GPF:

1. That Tessa wears a bright/hot color in the short dance
2. That Scott puts a spot of color on his black outfit. I have little hope he will though as it seems the leading trend this season is Men in Black. lol
3. That they finish on top of the podium. They never won a GPF title and it would be a nice addition to the other medals they have.

I like your wish list. But i am sure Scott will skate in black and Tessa will be in blue dress. Maybe something new they will show at Nationals ;)
And i wish to see new exibition. But again - maybe at Nationals?
Hope at this competition T-S will be crowd favorites and fingers crossed - they need this title more, then other teams ;)

My wish for V&M is to skate their lights out and hold nothing back. They will be hungry for this win, I think, especially since D&W have won the GPF 2 (or 3?) times now. I also think they should have new costumes for both the SD and the FD, didn't they do that for the Olympic year?

They will win unless the judges overscore D&W on PCS again, i just rewatched their cup of russia fd i didn`t know they were this horrible unpolished lines, no unison, Charlie`s awful posture its a mystery why they are scored so close to Tessa and Scott.

We are not judges, so couldnt know everything about marks and skating technick.
If so many people adore D-W and there programs and dont like V-M programs, so maybe that why V-M didnt had so many 10th yet.
I think all this negative could only bring something bad to V-M. Not D-W gave themselves 10th at CoR and made this programs.
So we could just enjoy figure skating and Tessa-SCott full season and wish them good luck at evey competition.
And if we didnt like someone skaters - we could not watch this team on TV ;)
