France still has a Pairs TBA for TEB, so it's likely that James/Cipres will end up filling that slot?

TBA host spots:
Skate America: filled today by Lysacek, Castelli/Shnapir, Anastasia Cannuscio/Colin McManus
Skate Canada: men, ladies, pairs
Cup of China: men, ladies, dance
Rostelecom Cup: men, ladies, pairs
TEB: men, ladies, pairs, dance
NHK: none

Last season, all of the host TBA's except France's were on the rosters by 2 September. (France announced in October.) This season, the deadline for confirming the original rosters was 1 August, two weeks earlier than last season. I'm not sure if this will impact the TBA announcements across the board, but from USFS' announcement, I'm guessing the unpublished deadline has been moved closer.

Zijun must have turned down the TEB offer for sure.. Now the question is, can you turn down an invitation and still get your host spot (COC) later???

So Next 5 Ladies to chose for TEB are:

Nagasu
Gao
Lacoste
Helgesson J
Flatt

NO russian ladies cause there are already 3 entered.

I kinda wanted Zijun to have 2 GPs, why would she turn it down?

I hope Mirai gets TEB. I'm not sure how I feel about her anymore, except I don't want to write her off already.

I think the TBA spot of COC is for Zijun,but Kostner didn't compete make her take TEB.you know,Zijun is the most popular skater in china,much popular than other two girls,COC would like to have her to attract more audience.Don't know if she can have the spot after she take down TEB offer...

I suppose that would depend on the explanation the Chinese Fed gave the ISU. IF they told ISU that the Zijun had been assigned Coc and therefore cannot do TEB .... but I am surprised that her name wasn't simultaneously added to Coc

Two more dance teams to fill GP. Is it possible that Chock/Bates might be on the top list to fill one of these spots which made them not being picked for SA? I was surprised that they were not picked despite doing well at LP, beat the other team. Not sure what was the strategy behind it.

Those two spots are HOST spots (more likely Yu/Wang and Zahorski/Miart), so unless a team withdraws previously enough to be replaced C&B will only have 1 event this year.

According to this http://www.isuresults.com/events/gp2012/gpsladies.htm the empty TEB spot has gone to Christina Gao. That's great for Christina but seems unfair to Mirai Nagasu who is so much higher in the seasons best scores and world standings.

And unfair to us because Mirai is much more exciting. :( (in my opinion ;) )

C/B already on list for China, so the only possibility for them is TEB, right?

If they went through Li and Gao, I would think that Nagasu turned down the pick possibly? I'm not entirely sure - yes, the French fed would certainly want to make it easier for their skaters but with or without Nagasu it's already a relatively difficult field.

Gao has two GP events? Mirai even though she's struggled the last year or two has done much better then Christina has on the GP and still has more potential.

IMO, Gao got it over Nagasu because Gao is less competition for the French ladies.

Well, duh, but according to their own policies, which were created to avoid diluted fields, Nagasu should have had the spot, unless it was declined.

Not quite. That TEB is a HOST spot, more than likely reserved for Zahorski & Miart. If the French decide not to use it on their own teams they could chose any of the top 5 from the substitute list but I dont think thats gonna hapen.
