    I agree, there has to be some reward for doing the harder jumps and triple triples.. if all the second group had done triple double their pcs would have been higher too as would not have had fall deductions and wouldn't have affected their programs.. so nice to see Sotnikova in first because she did the most risk with a clean triple triple and really fast solid spins.. if we went back to the old system we would have no technical progress because clean and pretty would win.. this way it remains a 'sport'..

    Im glad that its tight at the top, makes it really exciting and adds more drama.. I wish all the groups were closer.. Im glad Japan is doing well as they will get zero for pairs so will lose 7 points so good that the women did their job!

    Not sure why Gracie can't skate a clean SP with the exception of COR since it requires only 4 total jumps. She might be right at the top with a clean SP since she got level 4's on steps and spins. It just looks like she rushes to much. Girl needs to slow down a bit.

    Surprised Gold didn't get a < call on her combo, but amazing effort on the levels for the top 3 ladies.

    WHAT DID I SAY ABOUT WAGNER'S 3/3?!?! It's not going to work on the first try of the season. Funny that she said she made the same mistake on the 2axel last year because that's the first thing I thought of too! Also, someone needs to tell her just one spread eagle is not sufficient as "steps before the triple jump".

    Great for Sotnikova and thrilled to see the crowd get excited about Suzuki's semi hydroblade!

    Gold's PCS is quite high, compared to Osmond.

    And finally I am glad Meite is getting some love from the judges finally! Wonderful jumps!

    It seems like the best way for this to happen is for the judges to reflect it in her scores. Her coach should be smart enough to pick that up. If they don't- there is no reason to change what she is doing. Based on the GOE for her solo triple, they don't seem to mind.

    She does a few steps before the spread eagle but the entry is difficult enough that it doesn't seem to matter much.

    The ISU needs to add a provision to award credit for the classic layback position, or it's going to go the way of the dinosaurs

    What's happened to Liza? She seems to get tired toward the end of the season.

    I've always thought the basic layback position should be treated as a difficult variation of an upright spin.
