No I am not judge and jury. The judges who gave him scores that put him out of the GP final despite that you call improved performances, and that placed him 4th at his own Nationals after an off free skate are judge and jury. And as you even conceded he is on the way down with them, the ultimate judge and jury. Not making the GP final doesnt mean much if you rebound by doing well at Worlds. Missing the GP final in the weakest season for mens skating in decades and missing the World team altogether in possibly the weakest year of U.S mens skating in decades is not possible to sugarcoat though for someone like Abbott.
