    I think it's more his tone. Maybe I'm reading too much meaning into his remarks, but this sounds to me like he doesn't think MC are very good, but they "wanted it more, worked for it more," and so they won. Like they don't have much talent, just good work ethic. Admittedly, this could just be me being a hypersenstive DW uber. ; ) Something in his remarks was off-putting to me, and I'm not sure if it's the way he phrased things or the way I'm interpreting them. Or maybe both.

    You are not the only one. It is pretty clear that those comments were backhanded compliments. As a D/W uber, you should already know how commonplace those are.

    Yes, "backhanded compliment!" Thanks for finding the words I was groping around for. I'm moving this weekend (the first of two moves, actually), and it's eaten my brain. I'm glad MC's first competition of the season will be over the weekend when I'm between moves.

    On the brighter side, I got a tablet the other day, and one of the first things I did was go to You Tube and see how a video of MC skating would look. Man, Giselle looked amazing!

    Aw, don't worry over it. Like mollymgr said, it's pretty commonplace and we ubers who have been here for years have had to put up with it for a long time. I don't worry over it because DW's results more than speak for themselves. And not just that, I personally have loved every minute of watching them skate through the years and believe me, they have plenty of admirers.

    Wasn't it Zhulin who once said that they were almost like machines, or was that another Russian dance coach. As another D/W uber, I took offense to that comment as well.

    I can't wait to see whatever it is they're doing! They look wonderful as always.

    Uh oh. Sorry for starting a negative drift on the thread. I, naive me, didn't see anything wrong with his comments. I thought he was being sincere.

    #TeamVisa is mentioned in the tweet so it could be Olympic promos.

    ETA a non-competition event on their fall schedule:

    I hope the photos will be better than the ones taken over the summer.

    I'm really hoping that icenetwork can get their act together before the event. Their website is not looking very promising right now.

    A pic with Datsyuk…so cool

    Don't know who that hockey person is, but glad to see Meryl showing up with level 4, +3 hair this early in the season.

    Meryl's hair is just... beyond. Beyond all things earthly. And supernatural. And preternatural. In this universe or any other.

    I was just thinking it isn't just Charlie whose letting their hair get longer. Her hair looks so good.
