    At least no one can accuse the judges of inflating, lol.

    The twizzles at the beginning were fabulous pani. Spot on. The 3 point deduction doesn't make any sense to me unless a couple lifts were over the allotted time. Perhaps the last lift? If Tracy Wilson explains please post?

    So much for Canadian inflation....at least for V/M.....they don't seem to get any breaks at all from Canadian judges, which means that their SD marks yesterday must have been spot on.

    O, they didnt made spin - only level 1 and the first part combination lift get only level 2.
    Did they had fall? 3 points dedaction for long lift. All 3 were long? Oh, not good skating :(
    Sad they show this when Swan were in the building.

    I would rather that the Canadian judges/caller be harsh on them so they can anticipate and prepare for any bad calls at international championships. IMO, all federations should think this way. I would never want them to go into Worlds with a false sense of security and get these iffy calls when it really mattered.

    People on twitter say they were great. Where did all these deductions come from?

    Boy, every competition this season has been a roller-coaster. I thought we'd breathe easier for Nationals at least... Apparently not.

    They got dinged on deductions 3.00. Probably the lifts were too long but I haven't seen the protocols yet.

    I think Tessa looked just a bit off on the twizzles.

    The choreo lift, Scott kinda flips her around and then goes into spread eagle while her legs are around his waist and there's some ... sexual innuendo but Carmen is nothing if not sultry and provocative.

    ETA: Sorry, I lied - her legs aren't around Scott's waist, they're resting on his thighs. I rewound to watch and realized this.

    I'm so upset! What if they to changing things because of this now?! (Sorry I'm probably overreacting). Rainbow not a violation, but the 3 pt deduction.

    I haven't seen it, but 3-point deductions seems... harsh. And everyone, even the folks at ice-dance.com say they were great, so I'm thinking maybe it was the last lift?

    Sorry, but i wish to know- how about overall speed?
    Then, in the middle of the season they get dedaction for all 3 lifts? They didnt get it at any international competitions. Only at CoR 1 point dedaction.
    Maybe some of them put second foot on the ice during spin - this could.
    But sorry, i cant understand, how judges gave them all 10 for perfomance with so many mistakes?
    So before WCh they will replaced all lifts?

    LMAO! Long lifts? All lifts were too long? I have a hard time believing that. But without the deductions it would've been a season's best.

    This shows the insanity of the CoP where someone skates what looks to be a brilliant performance and then gets dinged for all these unnoticeable violations.... like the year Yukari Nakano had a brilliant long, I thought she would win worlds, and she was placed 4th.

    I doubt they'll change anything, Pani LOL. I mean, it's just deductions. Those can be avoided. Anyone has a link to the protocols?

    I'm more worried about the spin. Level 1? Does that mean they didn't do the position changes correctly or what? Since people in the audience (who know the program) didn't notice anything wrong, I have a hard time understanding...

    I dont know, what to think. But last season at Nationals they were given very bad levels? but didnt change nothing and get 4th levels at WCh.
    Ann Shaw was a referee. I could understand if she will give them dedaction for illigal element and didnt like Carmen, but 3 points...
    Sorry, but in USAD-W will never have uch marks. Never. What international judges could say if V-M "love" so much in Canada?

    They could put second leg and other positions wasnr count.
    Maybe audience didnt pay too much attention to this? Or In Canada ther is different clock, then in Canton? Good send-off from home judges.
