So if the audiences could be somehow tricked into thinking that there was more originality, the judges could still judge the quality of the patterns.
I'd be happy to be back to a 3 dance format, letting skaters pick their own CD music.
How do you think, when Tessa-Scott will arrive to Finlandia?
And who will go with them - Marina? Or maybe Mauricio, he will be there with his ice dance teams from Finland.
I think Marina will be with them.
I think any program some people like, some - no. I hope i will like new programs from T-S.
Cant wait to see how judges will like Bobrova-Soloviev FD.
I think Marina will be there. But she have so many other teams...
Anyway, I don't really care whether other fans like Tessa and Scott's programs or not. There will always be the haters who will say that Tessa and Scott shouldn't win any major competitions, but they will continue to be at or at least near the top through Sochi barring any injuries. As for their choreography, I don't think Marina will give them anything bad, and they could make a Kustarova program look amazing, so I'm not worried.
Well - I'm pumped. I just know they will be great. My only regret is that at the start of each year I know we are one step closer to that day they no long compete. That will be a crushing year for me. I love many other skaters - but i have such a huge amount of love for Tessa and Scott and look so forward to what they bring each season. I'm on pins and needles!!
sorry, Pani, did you mean revelation? . I would love to see the CD back I loved them

pani meant reality
He talked with Shpilband in Obersdorf. Now i satrt thinking Igor wish Carmen for Anna and Luca because he want to show he could made better without Marina. But its if belive in Werner words
Well, with Tessa and Scott, it's pretty hard to tell what the finished product will be as they tweak throughout the season, but their skating and story telling skills speak for themselves. I would hate to think that a rivalry between coaches extends to make the skaters pawns of that rivalry, but I suppose it happens, and frankly, I don't have a lot of faith in the fact that Shpilband isn't above doing that. I still wonder what exactly were the reasons he was forced to leave........sorry if I bring up an old subject. I really hope that the above is not the case.
All in all, I am really excited about viewing V/M's new programs this year as soon as they are posted somewhere, and I'm sure they will be .

Perhaps a rivalry between the coaches will add to the quality of stuff done by teams in both camps-that's my tooth-fairy type wish for them all.
I think the three teams left in Canton will be the ones hurt the most by this and NOT because Igor (as some believe) is the better coach but because last season we saw the lead of D&W and V&M drop. I see some people write as if those two still have some big cushion from the others but the reality is in the SD the top three teams point spread was only 3 points. P&B were ONLY one point behind D&W. There is no more cushion. In articles you read many people are announcing these two teams as beatable. That all started with the great coaching duo still intact. On their own it will be so easy to say aloud over coffee during an ice break that "they can see a drop in quality, they are not as strong as they were before the coaching split". They are going to have to work so hard this season for that podium. It will be a very exciting season I think with some major upsets for at least one of these teams.
