Who will win the Dance Gold at the GPF. It seems there are only 2 obvious candidates.
I really hope Virtue & Moir win as this is the one prize that has eluded them. However it looks like Davis & White events to take from the scores thus far, with Virtue & Moir possibly like last year improving and coming back at that after that.
Must have been my subconsious mind; I immediately clicked on V&M and couldn't correct the mistake. If the poll was who I want to win it would be V&M but I think D&W will.
well, with the power of your subconscious mind by way of freudian slip, v/m will win
V/M will win, it's obvious
I want VM to win it, but I think DW will.
I voted for V/M but that's more wishful thinking than probability unfortunately.
It would be nice to think it was open & not a two couple race but it will be between D/W & V/M even if there are errors.
I think and hope Meryl/Charlie will win
I think it may come down to the technical panel. If they are harsh and picky, then I think it could benefit V/M but if they are easier I could see it tilting the other way. That being said, I am wishing for V/M cause I'd like to see them win the GPF but I'm really not sure how to vote -- head or heart? Aw shucks, who am I kidding -- I'll go with my heart
I hope Virtue and Moir. But of course, it can be Davis & White, and why not Pechalat & Bourzat !
V&M are not exactly underdogs guys. They have never "owned" this event like D&W, but I think they will win. Head to head, I hope and believe the judges will score the PCS accurately between the two couples to reflect the difficulty and innovation of Carmen and the excellent interpretation displayed by V&M.
V&M have not won the GPF before, but that does not mean they are underdogs here. As the reigning Olympic and world champions, they are going to be the favorites here. So I voted for them. For Davis & White, I would rather see them regain their world title. GPF does not mean that much.
Yes, this will be more pain for V-M to lose in there home city.
I think untill WCh judges will respect V-M more, but for now i think they want to see D-W on the top, like this alwayse be, but usually V-M didnt give judges a chance to put them under D-W.
Will see what will happened this time. I wish V-M will win GPF, but think this will be D-W. But good luck to all skaters!
D/W will win most likely. They have much higher scores than V/M so far. I wonder if P/B might even be able to beat V/M here..
^If you look at scores over the past year, P/B are creeping up on V/M and D/W. I think P/B's high score this season is actually closer to V/M than C/L and B/S behind them. While I believe both NA teams still have the advantage, it's nice to see someone getting close(r) and making it more interesting. BTW, I don't like P/B's FD music this year.
I'd love for Virtue and Moir to win because they don't have this title yet but I actually hope they will peak at Worlds as per usual.
Wee... incredibly touch choice ... sigh.... I love watching both V&M and D&W. They are both fit and on top of their game. I will just toss the coin.
I'm like Carmen O. I think D&W will win, and I want V&M to win, but I did vote that way and gave it to D&W.
I think it's Weaver and Poje's year. My thinking is that their time is now.
Well, that was bitchy
D/W will win.
I would go there with ya ... but for a couple things
1) they aren't one of the choices
2) pretty sure they aren't going to GPF
but I do like the way you think.
I think Davis/White will win since their SD is better than V/M's and V/M never win the GP Final, for some reason.
They are first alternates. And I have locks of both Ilinykh and Katsplatov's hair along with some MIGHTY long pins. Do not underestimate my powers.
I believe you PeterG. Look what you did to Julia?
I have a fair bit more work to do in getting Kaetlyn to Sochi...
I'd love Meryl and Charlie to win it again as it's the one title they have that Tessa and Scott don't. However, at the end of the day I prefer them to win Worlds, unlike last year, so the GPF title may as well go to Scott and Tessa.
That's what I want. What I think? It's gonna be incredibly close. I'd love D/W to win the SD section as theirs is a masterpiece. It's harder to say with the FDs, it can go either way, depening on the performance of the day.
The title will go to whichever team manages to hit all their edges in the YP and the step sequences, in other words, the team that can manage the levels, as the judges will pretty much tie them on components. Remember last year though that D&W had a huge lead after Scott fell in the SD, and that V&M actually won the free dance once the scoring error was corrected. So anything can happen and something out of the ordinary probably will...
I'd really like to see V/M and D/W tie ... requiring duplicate golds.
Wow that's pretty spiteful.
I think it will be a repeat of last year, D/W wins SD and V/M wins FD. Overall though I think D/W will win.
well who knows, p/b might just pull a hat trick and win gpf! hehehe
In line with mia joy's spiteful comment, one could say that Olympic gold trumps GPF gold by anyone's standard. Does that mean we should wish wonderful skaters like M/C never win at Olys?
Not just "spiteful"? But pretty spiteful? (How about "awfully" spiteful? Or horrifically spiteful??)
So it's spiteful to hope that your favourite team wins a medal that they have not won before? Honestly, if Davis and White win this won, I do think Virtue and Moire will somehow be able to get out of bed the next morning. If I understand these four skaters correctly, they will all be happy for each other regardless of who ends up with the gold.
If you are an awfully spiteful V/M fan
At least V/M will never win US Nationals and D/W will never win Canadian Nationals. Those two titles are something you can never take away from horrifically spiteful fans!
I dunno. I know at least one of them who might find it a pissoff.
For me, Virtue and Moir should already have a GPF gold: the 2009-2010 title. I found their FD sufficiently better to make up the difference after the OD.
2010-2011 (obviously) and 2011-2012 do fairly belong to D/W.
But there´s no way to know what will happen this year...
Oh, come on! I wasn't being spiteful, I was being fair Since Tessa and Scott still have that one title Meryl and Charlie don't (the Olympic one), it's only fair that Meryl and Charlie have one that Tessa and Scott don't...
I mean, after Meryl and Charlie win the next Olympics, Tessa and Scott can win as many GPF titles as they want. Or the other way around, if Tessa and Scott win a GPF title, it should mean Meryl and Charlie will win the Games
But to be serious, I think they (D/W) still would give away all their GPF golds for that one Olympic title.
Davis & White got my vote. The Notre Dame de Paris program is really growing on me!
