I wonder how much what Scott said influenced them recalculating the scores or do they usually go back after a competition and double check everything? But like what Pani said they would have caught it earlier in that case, I don't know, but now I'm sure Scott (and Tessa too) feel validated and will feel more confident in their FD.
After GPF FD i read at few forums about this combination lift base value. So this happened not becase Scott was unhappy with there component score.
Fnd as for FD - we cant ignore Tracy Wilson words at GPF and FF FD.
So just to be clear, how would the score look now? And didn't we mention this difference between the single lifts and combination lifts way before this? How come the ISU never noticed?
pani, do you have a link for that commentary by tracy?
Good new about the FD marking.......happy to hear it.
Addicted to FSU
i wonder how this will be acknowledged beyond a little note on the isu website because according to everything in the media, tessa and scott lost the fd and are sore losers for feeling like they had it in them to win that fd... plus, the loss confirmed once again that funny face wasn't good enough.
P.S. Those photos from TEB are stunning. Fabulous work!
Is that error on the GOE of the combination lift a .50 increase in the TES or the PCS part of the score? As I recall, Scott was unhappy with the lower PCS in the FD and losing because of that, rather than the TES, but maybe I'm wrong. So, one could argue that the fall in the SD did cost them the GPF title, as they've been consistently marked well in the SD, and with the correct score on the combination lift, they've also been marked the best with the FD. I wonder if Tracy Wilson would change her comments, now that she realizes they actually won the FD against what is considered a "better" FD from D&W? This just will make worlds even more interesting doesn't it. Maybe it's not a forgone conclusion that D&W will win worlds?
This is OT and probably already mentioned, but I wonder if Tessa and Scott would skate to something from The Artist? Just got back; loved the film, LOVED the score. I know they've done similar things before, but it would be so cool.
bbkenn it was on the ISU homepage.
victoriaheidi, what is the artist about. If it has any romantic feel to it, I don't think they should do it cuz a lot of people seem to think every FD they've ever done has a lovey dovey theme and that that's the only theme they are capable of.

"That's interesting, I'm not trying to be cynical or pessimistic at all, but this was just a hunch that I got. Even without the 1 pt deduction that T/S got as a result of the fall, I still think D/W would have had a few points over them. And I also feel that if it wasn't for the 5 pt lead D/W had in the SD, the point difference in the FD would have been greater in favor of D/W."
Why, I'm not sure I understand what you are trying to say?
