    More like half the population.

    So do I. I don't give a rat's patootie what music any skater uses as long as the choreography seems to have a purpose. I wouldn't care if every skater used the same music over and over. Each performance is different. That spiral sequence is gorgeous and would be if they were skating to the ABC theme.

    Rockin' S/S! Thanks for posting. How inventive and creative, and my God, what range! Who else could get away with this program, not to mention their Send in the Clowns program -- the costumes and the concept, combined with kickin' choreo and stellar technical skills? I do beg to differ tho', cause the program you posted with rock-star music is all S/S/S and nothing close to the exploratory but somewhat tepid sp of V/T this season. As the season progresses, of course V/T sp could improve, but again, I agree with the posters who decry the music, costumes and too much S/S wannabe style of this sp. If V/T desire to copy S/S style, they need to make it their own, as P/T did at 2010 Olympics.

    Ya think!? I definitely disagree!!! Robin Szolkowy is no slouch in the handsome hottie department. His voice alone sends chills up my spine, his face and his bod ... smokin hot! Trankov is quite sexy and handsome too, but I would not try to compare their looks. To each his own, of course.

    I don't care for V/T's program whatsover. S/S style has more interesting choregraphy and costumes than that. To be frank I think one thing S/S have going for them that V/T don't have is Steur's great choregraphy.

    What's the point to discuss the music which is already dropped by the team? Sounds like nobody saw their SP in Bratislava.

    What exactly was the change in music? It sounded the same to me.

    Nebelhorn SP

    Ondrej Nepela Memorial SP

    Why should they move to Moskvina? Their closest competitors train there. Moskvina has two high level pairs, so I don't think she would take them on anyway.

    Besides, Moser isn't the issue, Morosovian choreography is. Yet, so far, it is doing what it's supposed to do, i.e., garnering the points. I would love to see them with something from someone more creative, but if that isn't going to happen, will settle to see them having long-sought success before whatever comes next in their lives.

    (really wish they could re-work the "Lady and the Hooligan" program that M/T had a few years ago though...)

    on the dance field, team shpilband-zueva had three high level couples, so why not three high level pairs?

    I can't read Russian, but it looks like V/T gave a recent interview here about their programs after Nebelhorn:

    Interview

    Anyone willing to translate or give a quick summary of what they say?

    You have a point, but we're talking about Shpilband(sp?) and Zueva here. It seems they will take any elite team if they feel they can handle it, I guess.
    I get the impression that Moskvina is more selective in who she works with. She wants to give each one plenty of time and individual attention.
    I think I've read a couple of interviews to that effect, anyways.

    Moskvina already coached Trankov once and the relationship didn't work out for what ever reason - he/they were shipped off to Dmitriev then Oleg. I don't see their coach as being as problem; why is everyone wanting them to leave her? I'm not sure the choreography is the problem either as much as the new rules. Give the choreography a chance, they haven't lost with yet.

    Because the couples under Zoueva are competing for different countries (not counting Shibutanies, because they have been lower level than the other two couples), whereas under Moskvina it would be three teams from the same country. I think too much stress for them.
