    this is all so confusing to me, but I am still trying to understand it... to help me out, could somebreak down who is next in line for the pairs, dance, ladies and men should there be any more withdrawals over the next 2 weeks?

    Since TEB is only a week away, we won't see any replacements there even if there is a drop out; as we've seen so far, late dropouts are not replaced.

    As for COR, we are now within the window there (14 days before) in which the events are no longer required to replace anyone who drops out. I don't think we will see any more substitutions there either, at this point.

    I think Chock and Bates got SC because Madison is part of a split team. For TEB, I think they got it because Evan is part of a split team. Samuelson and Gilles got one for Emily, Hubbell and Donohue got a host spot... and so on...

    I had never thought of that -- that each one of Chock and Bates earned a split couple berth. Thank you, Jayar!

    I think that's because they want French ladies to have more chance to get points by not replacing Hecken. Now only 9 ladies to compete and that means at least 2 French ladies will get some points.

    I really wish they would have Joshi in TEB.
    There's already her coach with Viktoria, so ISU would only have to pay her.
    I'm feeling so bad for her being placed 10th. Her free skating performance wasn't bad at all!

    Joshi cheated pretty much all her jumps in her last GP FS.

    But that doesn't matter. Joshi should have been invited. I know it wasn't 14 days but as tkaug said, her coach and sister were already coming so it would be cheaper than the usual replacements.

    I would guess it had less to do with wanting their own skaters to gain more ranking points, and more to do with saving $. Given the status of most federations' finances, I'm sure the French weren't too sad not to have to pay for a 10th skater even if she would have been cheaper than normal...
