I agree as well. For V/M career, their will be highlights to always talk about while davis and white its only thier medal count or rivalry with V/M. On the subject of marina, i think that marina is good for V/M and i disagree that she cannot give enough attention to them. Plus, tessa and scott have jennifer swan as well and enough technical coaches around. What they need to do is reuse elements! but a ballet program needs more dancy lifts so perhaps simpler lifts with past entrances and exits would be a good combination. Honestly at this point i'm more interested in what D/W are going to do for the FD. They cannot get anymore repetitive so it will be interesting to see. When I try to think of programs for the two teams, for D/W i can't think of anything different that they could do while i'm all like tessa and scott should do this or this... etc. I'mn also excited for the finnstep. I haven't seen it much but tessa and scott have done it before. I am happy to see W/P going to WTT and tessa and scott staying home. That means we might also get a new exhibition program for SOI but i like the idea of a modified carmen number. I'm seeing them live in london !

I thought that was very clear, and I think you make an excellent point, volunteer.

Nope, if you check his formspring even way before, he loves Tessa's skills. Someone asked him last year why Tessa is better than Meryl and he gave a really long and accurate description explaining why Tessa is better.

Ever since Scott admitted to being pissed after the GPF last season, people who aren't necessarily V-M fans tend to speak quite fondly of Tessa. I've heard people say that if Tessa skated alone, they'd root for her LMAO. But, no, AJ is right, of course. I'd still like to read that post, but I can't find it. I don't normally go there because the snark is too much for me, but I'd honestly like to read his explanation on why Tessa is better. I know she is, we all do. But it is always interesting to see what someone who is not a fan of the team has to say.

I must admit that I can't help liking Tessa more as a person. I've met her several times, and she's probably one of the most gracious skaters when it comes to interaction with the fans. Even if she looked tired, she gave us a sweet smile and talked to us in a most polite way. And though I don't generally think that skaters are obliged to be super-sweet to their fans at all times, especially during or after a tough competition, it's always a pleasure to be treated so wonderfully. I've heard many people comparing Tessa to Kate Middleton, and I think this comparison is accurate in many ways - she's truly royal

I agree. It was probably for people who were blind as to why Tessa is superior.

I think nobody will take V-M. Yes, who want to ork with skaters, who have any kind of problems.
I remember Lobacheva-Averbukh after 2000-2001 season, when they didnt get medak at WCh, asked TAT to work with them, she said - no, and L-A sta with Linichuck. Then they won silver at OG.
And before OG, when they need to start working on next season programs now - i am sure this will not happened.
Maybe next season V-M and D-W will have only 2 programs - one SD for both teams and one FD Or maybe will skate all together.

LOL Pani wouldn`t that be interesting. Marina just go screw it I`m too tired to make two programs so you will all skate to the same thing
Anyways I don`t think this has been posted here, this is the CBC version of the World`s FD. It seems to me Tracy knows exactly why Tessa and Scott are the best so maybe she should go talk to the judges or make Skate Canada talk to the judges.

I do like Tessa a bit better, too. That doesn't mean I don't like Scott, I do, but Tessa is pretty down to earth and she always tries to put people at ease when interacting with her. Scott is very goofy

L&A won bronze at 2001 Worlds. You're thinking of 2000 when they were fourth. 1999-00 was their horrible season. They remind me of V&M in some ways. When L&A got beaten by FP&M on the GP they changed their FD, then kept changing it. In the end they skated 4 different FDs! Sort of like how V&M continually kept changing Carmen in each competition. They try to work and let the skating speak for itself. I always admired L&A for working and not complaining about judging. Averbukh defended A&P when the vote switching thing at SLC came about, even though he and Irina only lost by one judge. I always respected L&A for not signing that petition against C&S as well.

Watching that again and again, goosebumps and then sorrow. It really is a MASTERPIECE and I don't say that about many skates. It will be remembered long after they stop skating, I believe.
03-21-2013, 04:54 PM
Gerbil, come to think of it, you are right. They never skated the same version and all were amazing.
My favourites were three: Worlds, Nats, and Skate Canada. Yes, even with the errors.

Here are some I've saved. These are not all I think because going through formspring sucks.
