    I am also just so over skaters with the arm flailing. Seems outdated and also exaggerated. Too fake. I don't need to see a whole skate program with bringing the arms in, then flailing them out trying to look artistic over and over and over again. Enough already. Draws too much attention to that and not the actual skating.
    Hopefully Evan L. has fixed his arm flailing "artistry".

    I'll hold my judgment until I see her programs, but I"m excited about them.

    Actual news?

    Rehashing and excessive speculation?

    From the little bit I can see from the blurry YT video, I think Gracie Gold's free skate is OK. I hear no obvious incoherence with the music cut (except the beginning segment is a bit too blaring). There is a clear attempt to match gestures to accents in the music. The spins are matched to the music reasonably well. Of course it's safe. It's the Olympic season. Everyone with half a shot to Sochi will play it safe. The only unsafe programs are either skaters with little chance to go or the crazy ones. Still the question remains whether Gracie will be able to carry through most of the choreographic points and at least flick a wrist or lift an arm at all the right moments.

    Would anyone object if I started ONE news/updates thread in GSD for U.S. Ladies AND Men to cover the rest of the summer competition season/beginning of the JGP season and the early Senior B comps? We could see how it goes and decide before Skate America if it's worth continuing with this combined singles format? (There are already separate news and discussion threads for U.S. Pairs and Dance in GSD.)

    Is there actually any benefit to having any general news-and-fluff threads about U.S. singles skaters, whether ladies or men or both?

    The Hungarian and Finnish threads, for example, each cover just a few current skaters, with a bit of discussion of Federation news and retired skaters like Júlia Sebestyén and Júlia Sebestyén. The typical U.S. ladies thread, by itself, tends to touch on most Senior ladies who will be at the next Nationals and several Junior and Novice skaters, so we get quick mentions of Karen Chen tucked in between prolonged discussions of the relative strengths and weaknesses of Ashley Wagner and Gracie Gold and whether Mirai Nagasu or Agnes Zawadski is likely to make the Olympic Team. And we still get threads devoted to individual skaters. There are active Nagasu and Wagner threads at the moment, and for the men we have threads for Aaron, Lysacek, Abbott, and Weir, and one for both Brown and Ferris, each of whom could sustain his own thread.

    I would like a general news thread because I don't go into the individual skater threads. Just my two cents.

    Could whoever starts the thread start it in GSD please? It's a little confusing to see threads for other disciplines in GSD but the ladies thread in TTC.

    I think the threads should be separate for singles. I know this US ladies thread includes both senior, junior and upcoming skaters as well and there's a large number of skaters to cover. Doing that same thing for men and then combining all of them...IDK, I think it will get confusing b/c there will be too many discussions going on within the same thread.

    That's just my 2 cents.

    I do think it should be moved to Great Skate Debate instead of the Trash Can though...

    See you all there!

    IMO, that's a title for fan/uber-type discussion threads in the Trash Can and not GSD. Nothing's stopping you from starting such a thread in here, though.

    Gotcha. The thread you started is specifically for legit news and updates and not so much the snarky/wacky discussions that tends to happen in this series of threads. Sounds good to me!

    Only 2 posts left...I shall post #8 now!

    Kay, the #8 thread has been posted. One more post here and then I suppose the conversation should resume over there!
