I noticed in a few threads people mentioning that they understood better why Patrick Chan's marks are as high as they are after seeing him skate in person.
I have also noticed a discrepancy of opinion on his skating, marks and placement between people who have been at the competitions compared to those who have watched on TV or online.
In your opinion - what other skaters fall in this category? Seeing them live makes a big difference?
(PS - I am just using Patrick as one example - so please don't make this a bash thread)
