The Shibutanis may not have gotten the same reaction to their re-start, but there are other factors at play besides V&M hate. They were skating at a Grand Prix, not a championship, and they finished 4th where they should have been contending for silver. V&M won a championship silver and a lot of people think they should be behind D&W even if they skate clean (a position with which I vehemently disagree of course, but I guess it's not unreasonable considering GPF), so to them, V&M did not lose anything and it doesn't seem like they were penalized enough.
Guys, but after JWCh, where Papadakis-Cizeron from France, FSUers startted thread about must skaters have dedaction for stop or no.
Of course part of the people, who was angry on T-S will have different opinion, if it was D-W, but i dont think this is most part of the FS fans.
My only hope is Tessa will be strong enough to skate both programs from the begining to the end. And will enjoy every minute in Davis home town
And i think perfomance at Nationals were near to perfect and hope they will made this second time at WCh
Wish to know, who will be in technical pannel at WCh.
Second year in row.This rule has been around forever.
professordeb, would Tessa and Scott win Worlds, not even a million hateful posts against them could ever take the gold medal away from them and that's what matters at the end of the day.I guess what I am trying to say is that sometimes it is very wearying reading all the anti-V/M by the same posters (often times) who say the same thing over and over again in multiple topics. It's going to be a long couple of weeks, maybe even a long month if you're a V/M fan, especially if they win Worlds. If that happens, I can already hear the reasons why they won and D/W were screwed from the get go.
I think mist part of this posters was upet for A-E. who was only third with clean skating in FD.The remaining part of FSU discussing the topic at length might well be Stepanova/Bukin supporters.
And P-C had mistakes before stop.
next time someone complains about scott's comments at gpf and wtt im going to tell them this“It’s important to be real and not always just polite,” Bourne said.
A lot off hydrobalndinge (when she or he skate on blade and there bodies is close to the ice)
Interesting interview with Jennifer Swan
Good words about Paul-Islam"What we have tried to do, and I think what is exciting and what people are responding to," she notes, "is that we have not focused on the elements, but rather the connective tissue between the elements. The connective tissue meaning, when other teams perhaps may be skating from element to element, our focus has been that we’re actually dancing through and we happen to have elements."
"You can certainly see that there is an intent to create, I think, more complex, more interesting stories and I think some teams were certainly more successful than not with that," she says. “One of the elements that I love is how woven the music is for Scott and Tessa, and the couple that placed fourth [Alexandra Paul and Mitchell Islam] – they had some beautiful music, and what I enjoy is when we stick with the same genre of music and find those musical moments in a piece as opposed to three different soundbites that are all different,” she notes. “They definitely have a stronger dance flow, I would say, than others. Without question.”Love this!But she is also excited to continue her work with Virtue and Moir into the Olympic season – though she’ll have to remain mum for now on any program details.
Hate this. Why V-M agree with this? Why they couldnt have someone only for them?“Marina has asked me to work with a few others on her team,” she notes, a process for which she's beginning to prepare. “And I would be very open to working in this venue, in the future, again, with other people. I’m interested in working with people who are interested in dancing their skating programs, essentially. Who are interested in imbuing their skating programs with dance and communicating messages.”
Davis bought Swan too, like London press?
Sorry, but now i will explane my point. Without judges gave such marks to D-W, we wil see Carmen at WCh with all that ineteresting things in step sequences, with this amazing first position in spin, when Scott look at Tessas face But V-M want to win and need to made FD more generic. This made me sad, because of D-W i will not see this peice of art Of couse this still the best FD, but not like it was at SC. Sorry.
And when i watched some young dancers i notice, like so many girls try to copy Meryl body positions, Papadakis try to copy Tanith posture... This is depressing. D-W destroyed ice dance.
Sorry, but sometines its good to be reall.
This is amazing interview. And Swan could made good job for ice dance.
