As for Kustarova, this just screams of politics to me. I think she should focus more on Bobrova's hideous posture and B&S's weak programs and less on the status of Virtue & Moir. I think it's quite clear she wants V&M out of the picture in the hopes it will help get her team on the podium in Sochi.
Rafter i don`t think it really matters if worlds are in France if P&B don`t hit their levels and weaver and poje do they won`t be on the podium nice or no nice. Their TES was very weak for their FD at europeans.
Ha! I just turned off the sound, and wow- compositionally, they really are the same. BUT- Maia and Alex are SIBLINGS skating a latin dance... Tessa and Scott are very clearly NOT siblings and should be rocking the LATIN part of this dance! It is ice DANCE, after all.. if the shibutanis come anywhere close to Tessa and Scott add me to the list of those who are afraid for the future of ice dancing.
They may not have momentum on their side, but they could have the surprise that Marina was talking about for D/W on their side... hopefully they are just saving that extra umph for worlds, not nationals
Honestly i like Platov work. What he made with BuklandComes is uniuqe - could you imaging what he will made with V-M?
I agree with one point- Zueva brought this idea and Tessa wish to use this music when she was (if this really was 5 years ago. With Z-S never knows truth) 17-18. At that age this was really great idea.Now their choosing Funny Face I blame on Marina. Sure Tessa brought it to the table 5 years ago or whatever, but Marina is the one who suggested it this year and I think any coach with their best interests at heart would have just said NO to it. If Tessa wants to be Audrey Hepburn, let her be it in an exhibition number. There is so much GREAT music out there, why FF?
When Zueva need gold for V-M she didnt let them to use this kind of music. Why now?
But.... Scott really love this music, they really love this FD and they really play great Fred and Audrey. If so i cant understand, why they start all time talking about changes. I think this could be there own victory, like involving in choreo a lot, if they didnt made THIS changes, but compete in black outfit with more jazz dancing in the middle. Who cares about marks, if judges didnt want to give them a gold? They could have audience support.
At this point i only hope they will find there confidence. Andhonestly i will not watch 4CC.
Its no matter how Shibs will perfom this SD - they will show easy skating and mayb more speed. But did you really think this is good for V-M that Shibs will skate there SD? From the begining of the season i cant understand - Marina want to show Shibs is worst in latin, then V- or she want to show VM couldnt skate such program clean, like Shibs?Ha! I just turned off the sound, and wow- compositionally, they really are the same. BUT- Maia and Alex are SIBLINGS skating a latin dance... Tessa and Scott are very clearly NOT siblings and should be rocking the LATIN part of this dance!

In any case, before all her teams had there own programs.
Interesting that Tracy says the Shibs are back in contention for a world medal this year with their scores at US Nats in the SD.
D&W just skated it was pretty good but Charlie was clearly off axis on the twizzles and that program has become boring sorry since USA has no judge at worlds they know they have to inflate both D&W and the shibs.
We now need to think about new thread title
ooops - 114.65 for D-W. Its too low for them
I saw that and I still think Virtue and Moir have a chance at Worlds.
V&M - The Future's so Bright, I Gotta wear Shades <--title
Tessa and Scott: Thank you
Right, now let's hold it against Tracy Wilson because she pays respect to a team that deserves respect. Please.
