Who would you have awarded victory to in Yesterdays Men's competition - Patrick Chan or Denis Ten?
03-16-2013, 08:26 PM
D10. But Patrick wasn't the only one with inflated scores overall. IMO Denis received clean+Lori Nichol bonus in his PCS.
B/S for the podium or P/B?

Bobrova & Soloviev
Time to scrap COP/IJS - Yes or No?

No just needs to be reworked. And on that note...
What if a fall automatically reduces one base score for PCS. (ex: 3 falls means the highest person can earn in PCS is a 7?)
-Bah! terrible idea! I am aghast
-sounds reasonable--but isn't a whole point a little much?
-brilliant idea! siouxdonym for prez prez!

I have mixed feelings. On the one hand, like BreakfastClub, I want to see a scoring mechanism that would restore some of the suspense and momentum in accumulated jumps that's been lost since the beginning of the IJS; also, I do have trouble with such outcomes as Chan finishing ahead of Ten overall. On the other, docking PCS for reasons having nothing to do with their respective criteria smacks of vandalism.
In other words, it's worth a try.

I am 84% satisfied with the results, so the ladies' event gets a college B/high school C+ from me.
highlights for f_d:
Kim's free skate
Mao's free skate and return to the podium
Li's breakout free skate
Popova's solid performances (I like consistent skaters.)
Osmond's short program
Suzuki's flawed short and very flawed free skate
Tuktamysheva's disastrous short, from which she didn't quite recover
Mao's short program
Kostner's short program and fall on the salchow in the FS
the lack of exciting Leonova makeup and costume voids
Turkkila's 31st-place short program (Good luck at Nebelhorn, Kiira!)

I slightly prefer the melodrama of Les Mis.

I need to watch Les Mis again but I SLIGHTLY prefer it as well.
that Israeli kids "Party Sailor" program
Carolina's leaky nasal cavities
Misha Ge post skate theatrics
Max Aaron rubbing himself up against the barriers
The seven or eight spin splats
herds of awkward old Canadians dressed in red, sitting together in the audience (so distracting. )

Which of Yuna's worlds winning performances were more phenomenal?

SP. The LP isn't one I'll rewatch many times, and I'm not just saying that because, well, you know.
Should Frank Carroll wear an amazing fur when standing at the boards in Sochi next year?
eys, but a faux fur

Was sending Kovtun to the Worlds a mistake?
03-17-2013, 04:41 PM
It's not a decision I would've made, but I'm not sure it was really a mistake.
Zhiganshina/Gazsi, Nathalie Weinzierl, or Peter Liebers?

Should there be a rule against using recycled programs for the Olympics?

Should Javier keep his LP for next year?

Did Bobrova & Soloviev deserve the bronze?
03-17-2013, 07:22 PM
Will C/L ever pass them?
purple W/P will pass them both
