I re-watched the video the other day, and when the marks come up, they cut to a shot of Yags, and he didn't look happy at all, just shaking his head. I think everyone in that arena except the judges knew Sasha should have won.
Sasha Abt was also robbed in the SP at SLC. How his clean, awesome SP ended up below Plushy's splat-the-quad (but otherwise flawless) SP I don't know. Sasha should have been at least third. Maybe the judges were just terrified that they might end up with a Russian 1-2-3 on American soil!
