    :confused: Did I miss an announcement from the ISU? :confused:
    :confused: Was there a rule change for the pairs and their single spins? :confused:
    I watched the pairs programs from skate America and noticed NONE of the pairs did individual spins in unison. I always thought this was an important part of the pairs programs, showing unison and how in-sync the skaters are to each other. So, they cut them out? :kickass:
    It was a requirement last year, wasn't it? :huh:

    They have alternate year requirements. This year there isn't any pairs spin.

    I asked the same ?? last year. I think it totally sucks. One of the top signs of a well-matched pairs team was the SBS spins. I think the footwork sequences now are bloated. I miss the SBS spins and the spiral sequences. If I want to watch skilled footwork, I'll watch dance. Most of the pairs' footwork makes me yawn. Same with the ladies. I miss the spirals as well.

    I wish these changes would be an impetus for pairs to improve their footwork.
