I am not JUSTIFYING anything. I am stating the facts
How the judges see it is what determines the results = FACT
The mandatory deductions are being applied for Chan's falls = FACT
Opinions about performance and interpretation are subjective = FACT
Only the opinions of the judges in these areas affect the outcome = FACT
And then I gave my opinion as well - In my opionon Chan does interpret the music very well (not pretty well) and nearly always continues to do so despite falls and whether or not he falls does not take away from his skating skills. Because of this - he will deserve more points than others who skate more cleanly. Again - this is my OPINION and I have a right to it.
And - you may want to read my post again to discover I was not trying to bring Takahashi into any fray. I mention him as a skater who IMO is superior in enough areas to other skaters that he can and should win over skaters who may skate "cleaner" than him. Overscored is your word - not mine - and I have never found Takahashi - my favourite eligible male skater right now- to be overscored - though I might have liked him to be at the Olympics last year.
