    All this silly ubber talk of D-W not have any NBC promotion, all in dream mind of D-W ubber. But you can dream wonderful dream
    Two of those links were from Vancouver and the others were from October. No one said they didn't have any NBC promotion, but should have more considering they are Olympic medalists and World Champions.

    To say nothing of Gracie being neither a National champion nor a World or Olympic or GPF medalist. She's been on one World team and has not had the best GP season this fall. Meanwhile, DW are Olympic silver medalists, 2-time World champs, 5-time National champions, and 4-time GPF champs. Based only on competitve results, it's hardly unreasonable to wonder why they aren't featured more prominently in NBC's advertising for Sochi.

    Why must D-W get featured in this Pandora Skating Special if they are not even skating in it Gracie is sponsored by Pandora, this show is called Pandora unforgettable holiday moments on ice not Kelloggs on Ice or Ralph Lauren on ice or Puffs on Ice or Judy Blumberg and co on ice

    Wow, you took the time to research articles on a team you don't seem to like?

    Very possible. It's still frustrating to see the attention Gracie gets in general, given she doesn't really have the competitive record IMO to back up the hype. I'd rather not see MC ignored until 2 days before the dance competition in Sochi, then declared losers or chokers if they don't take gold. Just call me a crazy "ubber."

    These comments don't really support the idea that you like D/W, but you just don't like their fans.

    I should have added--sponsors might really want to think about who they sign up, and NBC might also want to think about who they hype to hell and back. Wasn't there a US pairs team that Coke sponsored, and they didn't even make the team for the Olympics? LOL, oops!

    ITA! And I also don't understand why Gracie gets so much hype in general. She's got amazing potential to be really really good, but I don't think we will see the best she can give until later on in her career, and I think she should be aiming for 2018 olympics in terms of medals. Whereas Ashley gets significantly less promotion than Gracie (although she has been getting a lot more as of late) despite being our best shot at a medal outside of dance, and Meryl and Charlie get almost none despite being our only realistic chance at gold in figure skating! It is very frustrating.

    Just don't feed the trolls. There is obviously very little logic or purpose behind their arguments other than to provoke. Unfortunately, ice dance isn't a priority here. I still don't get Gracie though. I would much prefer to see Adam or Jason in a promo...even if Meryl and Charlie are the only locks for the team.

    Wow a few Internet articles (and Evan Bates on Twitter?)- that really makes your case. Remember in the 90s when skaters had children's books, multiple commercials endorsing products, billboards prior to the Olympics? Meryl & Charlie are barely even featured in NBC's own Olympic promotion. Keauna and Rockne were pushed harder before Vancouver than the reigning ice dance world champions are currently. Don't understand how a few online articles (which will probably only be seen by skating fans who are looking for them) is indicia of some big (nonexistent) U.S. media push. But if you need to believe that to justify the results, go right along living in delusion-ville.

    Its sad that the delusions of V/M fans are starting to color how I view their skating. And I rooted for their win in Vancouver and LOVED their Carmen.

    The last two posters are the same people. I guess they can't keep their identities straight.

    ?? Um, actually No. I quoted emka's post in response before removing it altogether: She added her latest snippet to her post #926 which I quoted but deleted because she removed it and put it in a separate post below (#934). Knowing she deleted her quote I removed my post which was a response to her (in which I hit Save right after deleting my response, but not before deleting her quote, which as a result only appears as her quote). I then replaced my post with a question about the "delusions" issue since I figured I already created a post, but whatever.
    If someone has a screenshot of this whole page from the first post on this page to the latest one you'll see what I'm talking about.
    FYI, what I was going to respond to emka's post about "not staying on subject long" was that the subject seems to veer away from actually analysing the skating.

    I think regardless of the outcome, its safe to say they're going to give 110% of themselves out there on the ice. This is not a team known for skating "tentative" or "holding back."

    Imagine a promo featuring Meryl and Charlie, Jason, and Ashley and Adam doing something together... That would be awesome

    Its UBER. There is no such word as "ubber." If you're going to infiltrate this D/W thread and use that in every post, please spell correctly.

    Back to D/W, I'm hoping for a return of the lavender SD dress this week.

    Whovever is Tweak, her/his reaction to "delusions of V.M" is completely understandable and justified. It's one thing to talk about "delusions" of V/M ubers (which not all of them have, anyway), but to ascribe those "delusions" to V/M themselves is something else entirely.
