The worst thing of all is Canadians have the ignorance to even write books on skating where they diss Russians as power dealers and fixing results for decades. Talk about hypocrites.
Once again I ask the same thing in the past. D/W lost in Nice because of lower TES levels in both the SD and FD compare to V/M. If you disagree, please tell us which of those levels were under-marked and why. Or if you think V/M were over-scored, which levels didn't they deserve at those Worlds and 4CCs.
Since you brought Rochette and Nagasu into this, hertmirsh, how would you score Rochette and Nagasu in SP and FS to give the bronze to Nagasu.

[QUOTEand D/W and USFS/American media will whine and another SLC scandal will happen so the ISU will be forced to give D/W gold too][/QUOTE]
Part of me wishes I lived in your delusional world where the American media actually cared about Meryl and Charlie.
I couldn't vote. Both teams are my favorites. I would love to see D&W be the first to win in Dance for US, but I just saw V&M's free skate from Skate Canada and I thought it was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen on ice. So - I'm stuck. I'll honestly be both happy and sad no matter who gets the gold!
So seems you are not well-versed in the art of satire? Didnt they not teach you that in schools? But yes America cares alot for D/W they are locked in for gold and they are USA only gold for FS in Sochi considering Lysachek doesn't seem to be coming back.

Evan has WD from every tournament he in.
I think they mean that the US doesn't care about D/W even if they are the only ones who are basically a lock for any medal in Sochi. And they'd be correct; the United States doesn't care about figure skating at all unless it's the Olympics and even then the only thing that matters is Ladies. USFSA has done far more promotion for Ashley Wagner and Gracie Gold, especially, than it has for D/W.
My money's on DW because it's crystal clear they are the better ice dancers over the Canadians. More power, cleaner edges and stronger body lines and extensions.
Both, I think. The protocols confirm the great skating.
What cracks me up is the ridiculous persecutory complex and victimization you, walei, and several other V/M übers have regarding Tessa and Scott. It's all over y'all's threads in this forum like a bad rash.
As was explained upthread, this thread was simple question about which team a betting person would place odds on. It didn't turn into your perceived trashing of V/M until y'all started bitching about what's being said is taking place on Golden Skate. I don't read or participate over there because I can't stand that board's tendency to be a cauldron of passive-aggressiveness and bitchiness thinly veiled by their goody-twoshoes attitude.
More like their delusional world, period.
What I find hilarious is was the whining over how V/M were unfairly marked down/crucified by the judges for the "tiny little mistake" in the SD at this past Worlds when Tessa biffed the twizzles and Scott made a mistake on one of the FW sequences. If Meryl and Charlie had made those mistakes and received the same score as Tessa and Scott, the V/M Über Brigade would have been screeching like a bunch of banshees that they weren't penalized enough for such a glaring and huge mistake .
Whitneyskates, you're absolutely spot-on about the American Media, especially NBC, regarding D/W and Ice Dance in general -- Their coverage of Dance during this Grand Prix is disgusting.
Excuse me Cyn I don't read Golden Skate. My post was a response to one of the post in THIS thread of that diatribe insulting V/M and claims that they only won in Nice solely because of Scott's whining and bitching. Maybe you can turn your attention to that instead of jokingly thinking you want to shoot V/M fans who disagree with your opinions all the time.
But thank you for being one of the few D/W ubers that recognizes D/W shouldn't have won in Nice. Maybe you can go to the D/W thread and elsewhere and tell your fellow ubers that the next time THEY play the oppression of mighty Skate Canada and the victimization of D/W card.
On topic, before Skate Canada I would put my money on D/W but odds may not be so heavily in their favor after what I've seen from Skate Canada. The next two weeks may change my mind again... but I would still put my money on D/W.
