    As disappointed as I am not to get to see their programs at least we still will hopefully see something. At least one Carmen, B&S again, W&P are also competing and P&B at Masters so hopefully we will see some videos online. I've seen B&S already but am very anxious to see what the other three have come up with, especially W&P as their concept sounds interesting.

    Yeah I really want to see them in some capacity live because I've never done it. I really hoped they would go to TEB this year since I'll be going, but I guess they couldn't since Pechalat and Bourzat picked it? And it makes more sense for them to do Cup of Russia so they can get practice competing there twice this season (unless for some horrible reason they don't make GPF)

    And yeah I'm super excited about Bobrova and Soloviev - I just rewatched both of their dances and I see all these small places where they can add transitions. They are probably my second favorite team competing atm and I hope they flourish under Zhulin.

    I'm feeling somewhat relieved with the news that this is only a minor injury. Hopefully, Scott makes a quick and complete recovery.

    Does anyone have the link to the Skate Canada press release? That one above seems to be broken. Thank you! I am glad it was something minor. You can never be too cautious, in my opinion. Not given their past experiences, so I am glad they decided to stay home.

    I think I can breathe a little better now... I'm glad they're cautious. As good as it would have been to receive feed-back early in the season, it's better not to aggravate a minor injury which, hopefully, will be gone until Skate Canada.
    On a positive note, I liked PJ's tweet about their programs.:)

    That's nice, can't wait to see them. Sigh, looks like I'll have to start another countdown.

    ETA: Feel bad for Tess and Scott, people are so rude.

    It's a good thing they're not into surfing the internet, then.;)

    Seriously now, and I've said it before, we need thicker skin. It's only gonna get worse. But as long as they're healthy and competing, I'm happy.

    I was worried about his neck when I saw him do that lift where I think I recall he rotates her and/or her leg around his neck and you can just see his neck get hit. They do that repeatedly and it is only a matter of time before his neck (and maybe head or shoulder) pays the price. I was surprised that nobody on his team was worried about that but maybe they only work with the young and don't see the effects on the middle aged and older adults?
    I hope it's true it is just a minor strain....however if it is so minor the physio should be able to get it loosened up enough to compete. Maybe they tried that and it didn't work out. Too bad about all of this. I hope he doesn't end up needing a surgery down the road!

    I could understand, if people, who went to Finland to see them could be angry, but why D-W care about this withdraw so much? They must be happy with Scott injury :lol:

    Do you mean D&W fans? Because I don't see anything from D&W that says they care about V&Ms withdrawal. Now D&W fans on the other hand..... :shuffle:

    Pani, you generalize and twist opinions and then ignore people who call you out on it. I only read ONE comment from someone doubting Scott's injury and it wasn't neither Davis nor White, and it wasn't even a D-W fan. You start the most absurd fan wars, I swear. Let them be, who cares what they say or don't say? Only you it seems.

    I strongly suspect that Pani's alter ego is not really her but some mischief maker.

    Another thanks from me, Macassar88! I especially love their mindset towards setting goals, very specific, clarified goals!

    Their faces changes a bit with grave sentiment when talking about life after "March, 2014." It gave me jitters.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tp29rdT_roM&feature=youtube_gdata_player this is a preview of CappLanotte's Carmen. i would define it 'classic', a 19th century, operatic Carmen. i think Operatic style is their strenght. they're Italian, after all. maybe Carmen has to be skated very 'big', though. the program is nice to watch, but imo the subject matter requires something that keeps you on the edge of your seat. we'll see how the 20th century Carmen looks like!
