    Just to back track a bit. I think Scott was "coaching" Tessa all through the dance. There were a few times I swear I heard Scott calling out to Tessa about doing something -- usually when she wasn't looking at him like in the twizzle section for instance. After him roaring, it doesn't surprise me at all.

    I like the K/P analogy. I am hoping that something similar happens to V/M only I am hoping that the coaching change takes place earlier that 4 months prior to Sochi. That could put it just about the end of December? after the GPF?

    I could hear Scott too while they were skating.

    4 months before Sochi would put it mid-October, bascially on the eve of the GP series. This would be like going to Finlandia, getting feedback, getting fed up and then leaving before SC or whatever their first GP is.

    Tessa's pedestal position was stunning wasn't it - the best she's ever done. I think what they were attempting to do with Carmen was to marry the old style dramatic dance with the new GOP and show that it could be done successfully. Tracy Wilson said at one point this season that the expression of the dance was interfering with their levels - one movement too far and the edge is lost. I think that Carmen would have still won the judges if Tessa hadn't been having leg/training issues. I loved their Carmen at Skate Canada even with the flaws; I also loved seeing the refinement they gave it at Worlds - but my preference was for the rawness of the original performance. I took Scott's comment about their being on a different level to mean that they were in a different headspace than the other dancers when it came to their goals - I don't think he was putting them above other teams at all. As usual people think the worst. It all makes them a fascinating pair to watch though. The way they connect with one another is unbelievable and never more apparent than in London.

    I don't think so. I think there is a bigger agenda at hand and a win by V/M this year didn't fit into that. They were never going to win this year. It wasn't going to be allowed to happen.

    I'm finally catching up on the CBC stream coverage of the SD, and there were some cute moments between Tessa and Scott. Before they go out for the warmup, he says to her something like "I'm just going to hold your hand out there" and then gives her a one-armed hug while whispering something in her ear. And as they leave the ice from warm up, Tessa rubs his arm. More evidence of their constant support of each other!

    I just watched the gala on my friend's 80" TV. They blew me away! :cheer2: I loved the way they seem so happy. I think they looked more genuinely joyous than I have ever seen them, even more so than after Olys, imo. Their love and concern for each other is emotionally overwhelming to me. I get to see them live at CSOI in Vancouver. I cannot believe how blessed I feel. :swoon:

    Nice to see he got the 'eh' in there:lol:Very Canadian.
    Oh I know. First time I rewatched it I started tearing up at the beginning. It's sappy and crazy but they just have something so special, it's like they were 'meant to be'. Makes you believe in fate. As you say just 'melts your heart'.

    Nice to hear about all the support they are receiving worldwide.

    Sorry to hear about all the 'attacks' from some D/W 'fans'. They are quick to ridicule and accuse us then a few morons go and do this cause 'their' team won? Grow up. I'd never let them forget it either.

    It's clear to me they aren't leaving Marina and I accept that because this is what they want. Do I wish she hadn't said what she said recently? Of course but I believe she does love them and does have their best interests at heart. It must be a very difficult situation for her at times. She has given them wonderful material to date, I've never been disappointed anyways. I believe she will do what she can to help them win but in the end it's not in her hands. I believe the problem for them is not her but the ISU/Judges(shocking I know since they've never been a problem before:p)and there is little they can do about it. They just need to go into this season and just be happy, enjoy and be at peace with whatever happens, like they did on Saturday. If they do this I know their performances will be out of this world and it will be the judges that will have to decide if they are really going to deny them again. If they do shame on them.

    Same here! I wasn't able to fully enjoy it watching it live because of my nerves. The second time, my eyes welled with tears from the emotion of it all. I also loved the hug after the EX, I could almost imagine Scott saying "come here, you!" The EX was fantastic as per usual - must be so cathartic for them.

    I think I may have a breakdown during the Olympics because it'll be their last competition.

    Every year they keep getting closer and closer, too. I am going to be a wreck at next year's Olympics (but i'm thinking they'll go professional and still do shows etc). Can't wait to see them at SOI this May!

    Thanks to Golightly, pani, and everyone else who provided translations and links. and tapper88, thanks for transcribing the pep talk. That was just so sweet. They have such a special relationship.

    I also took that quote to mean the judges weren't on their wavelength and didn't really understand the concept. And DelSchoes definitely came to mind for me this week, as well, in terms of the judges not rewarding the difficulty or the concept of their program.

    and I agree, who wouldn't want such a supportive partner? and I know Tessa calms and comforts him as well (like at 2010 Worlds). That is a true partnership:)

    Thank you, Pratfall!

    volunteer, I am really sorry that happened to you. If you put that user on your ignore list, that should block their private messages as well as their posts. That's probably the most effective way to deal with nasty ubers as trying to reason with them does not seem to work.

    Hey guys, on a positive note I was thinking - how about collecting all of the good things that different skaters/experts have said about V&M over the years? I ran this by iggie so she can post it on her blog. :)

    pani and other posters from other countries, your help with foreign language articles would be greatly appreciated. I would be happy to search old threads for quotes (will work on this during the week).

    If anyone can pop out some names that would help too... I know Navka, Zhulin, I&K, Domnina have said great things and I can't think of any others off the top of my head right now.

    There have been so many and I would love having them in one place to read.

    With their awesome hugs in mind, like at the Olympics and these Worlds, I can't even begin to imagine what their hug will be like after their very last competition performance ever. I wonder if it'll top the "Thank you so much" moment.

    Love Tessa's dress! And love Tatiana.
    Honestly eutrepe needs to grow a pair, stop being a little punk and just come in here and say whatever he wants to say. Right now he's just looking like a little pathetic coward.
    That's such a neat idea. Hopefully I find something to contribute. I remember when the fake Tessa's instagram was still up, Pani said Grishuk had nice things to say about their Carmen or something.

    I'll be right their 'breaking down' with you. I can never enjoy it live.
    Real nice. Maybe if you ROAR at them they'll go away:)

    Love V/T nice pic.
    I took it to mean that as well. Thing is I think the judges understood exactly what the concept was, but they definitely weren't on their wavelength cause they're to damn stupid, and to busy playing games.
    Love DelSchoes So happy when they won their World title but they got shafted way to often. Oh well they are appreciated and remembered fondly just as V/M will be.

    she needs to deal with it lol cause they are always going to be people talking shit about other skaters and fsu is full of these people. threatening to sue them all is just plain censorship

    Awesome idea. Krylova has been quoted as saying some wonderful things about VM. Elena Ilinykh too. I started a thread last year about skaters favourite skaters,...I'll have to look in there again as it's all a little fuzzy.

    :lol:usfsa!:lol: Yes I'm sure they'd be very interested.

    Anyway as far as comments about V/M I know Krylova said '...the Canadians are a unique pair. Scott Moir is an enormous talent.....for me they are number one'
    I like the idea of compiling all of the comments in one place. I think that is better than any gold medal or any score a 'judge' can give.

    Hmmm ... just wondering out loud here ... sorta.
    Is there anything higher than Platnium? Just thinking that if Plushenko's fans thought he was robbed of gold and therefore deserved a Platinum medal, V/M are at least TWICE as good as he has been and should get something higher. Wadda think? Hmmm? ;)

    Ok, I'll try to be serious. Ugh, no, that's not a good idea cause then I'll feel down about the whole stupid dance thing and all the attacking of Chan going on here
    and and and I.do.not.want.to.cry.
    thinking about how next year is it for the BEST dance team ever.

    I am definitely going to have to go to either Skate Canada and HOPE that V/M are doing it OR go to Canadians. The latter is closer to home for me -- at least it's still in the same province (barely) but the former is on the east coast and I could maybe, perhaps fit in a visit with DD since she's not coming home this summer :( what's a skating fan to do? If I had the $$$, I'd do both but alas, that's not possible at this moment.

    Cherub, great idea! I was going to suggest Jess's thread. Shae has also had glowing things to say about them, and Stephane Lambiel said the following in an interview last year:

    "When you watch ice dance they will have almost the same beginning of the footwork, because they have to do those deep edges with difficult turns; the twizzles. On the other hand I think it's interesting because the fantastic champions still, even with all those rules, find new things and bring more than just the elements. That's why I love Tessa and Scott (Virtue/Moir), because when you watch them you don't see the rules, you see the story, the emotion."
