Well not everyone that will be at World's is Canadian so there *could* be some booing -- one way or another.

Crazy about sports!
I'll be boo (-hoo-ing) from my living room couch.
Re: that Meryl Davis London Free Press article, I wonder how much overtime D&W's agent had to put in to get that published.
In any case when a team has confidence and genuine connection, it does not require repeated reminding, it's purely evident and divine to watch.
A i remember, how during long years the same people talked about how they were bothering with V-M connection and love on ice and how now they talked with enthusiasm about new D-W connection
But what can V&M do? They can't go around saying look at how much ice we cover with one push, look how much more difficult our lifts are.... they need people to do that for them. The only one who tried was PJ Kwong and she used the ridiculous cheese analogy.
Considering what russan specialists talked about V-M, i am not sure they need PR. There skating speek for themselfs, no?
But look, like V-M didnt want all this promrtion. Maybe they want to protect Tessa. And maybe before (untill 2010) coaches did all this promotion work for them, but then thigs changed.
Chan too. In 2011 and 2012 they built up an aura of invincibility around Chan that he could do no wrong, that he had a significant advantage even with multiple falls because of his depth of edge, his flow, the transitions, the quality of everything he did... well, shouldn't those things be even more important in ice dancing?
Maybe thats help - Patrick didnt have close competitior from USA? I felt all the time since 2009 SC did more promotion to D-W, then to V-M They could simply didnt talk about them, but they prised them higher, then so really strong dancers.....
That's a really great point. I'd never thought about it that way.I could be wrong again but I suspect it's not that easy to strongly politik for a team that kept answering the question "Are you going to continue next season?" or "Are you going to continue until Sochi?" by "We don't know yet, we'll have to sit and talk, we take one season at a time" and suchlike.
