I could see the Team Event being quite popular with the regular public. It's kinda like when people want the Gala ticket because you get to see the "best of the best" and all that.
There will have to be a limit of 6-8 countries. With 6 countries, that would be 24 routines, which is how many routines you see at the Olympics in the actual disciplines.
It's not like I wouldn't watch it, but I'm kinda meh on the prospect. And the "You see this in gymnastics!" argument does not sway me one bit. If anything, figure skating should move away from that annoying sport.
Someone needs to tell me why I should want Jessica Dube or Caydee Denney or Elena Leonova to have Olympic medals around their necks. I can barely stomach the idea that Evan Lysacek could have TWO gold medals--or Plushenko with two Platinum medals! If Elena does the chicken dance on the podium, maybe I'll consider it.
