    I picked Ando, Oda and Rippon(!).
    Rippon's presentation is very good this season.
    But I just hope that he tones down a little and goes more simple.

    Mroz, Flatt, Gachinsky.

    The first, boring as hell.
    The second, so old fashioned.
    The last, it's not FS ! Reminds me too much of Plushenko. Too much posing, no transition.

    I don't know ... but it seems that coach Tom Z. students need to develop their package. Both Brandon and Rachel can jump, but are sorely lacking in programs, refined edges, and the ability to reach an audience with personality. IDK if its the choreographer or they need an ice dance coach but somethings gotta change. They are both to good to not evolve!!

    You mean he's not a Rach Star? I have to agree, I find his interpretation melodramatic

    How about we just say "all of Morozov's skaters"?

    Not just a style intervention, but actually storming the barracks and freeing them!

    Please let Agnes Zawadzki have the sense to change coaches after this season. This girl really has some good basics but needs better choreography and coaching. Maybe if I start praying to the skating gods now.........

    Along with 'all of Tom Z's skaters'

    Does the intervention have to be in re the technical aspect of their skating? How about those most in need of intervention psychologically ? - Czisny, Abbott

    I hope Mroz doesn't take Michael Weiss' place as the "str8 one 2 hate".

    Kozuka’s a bit introverted, similar to Jeremy, but Kozuka does have artistry and interpretation. Ex: his SP last yr, his LP this yr + his exhibition piece “Fallin.” Maybe he should get a better costume designer, so he doesn’t dress 10 yrs older than his real age.

    And why Chan’s not included in the selection? If we compare Chan’s “Take Five” with that of Kozuka 2 yrs ago, then Kozuka’s skate actually looked like a jazz dance, while Chan never looked like he’s “dancing” with his stiff movements…

    LOL Chan definitely fall into this category. Not exactly introverted, but more like scarycrow caught looking in the headlight. Not much personality for sure.

    I would say Asada and Chan even though they aren't on the list. I don't get what is going on with those 2. No skater at Chan's level should have that many falls. Asada should be dominating this season instead she can barely skate.

    Actually, Kevin is getting better in terms of his presentation, so I think that there is an intervention in process. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw him at Skate Canada and really liked his exhibition piece. It is obvious that he is trying. However, the hair has got to go!

    There's been concerns about Mao since she announced she was going to do a major jump rehaul in the off-season. And Chan? Isn't that how he usually skates?

    Sandra Bezic is helping him this season. The LP music choice of OTWF doesn't help a skater as bland as Mroz. At least his costumes are somewhat better - No more onesies.
