And honestly scoring for Home GPs are always very generous (SA was EXTREMELY generous to D/W) same with SC. For the judge to give V/M +3 GOE for a botched lift is very genrous (perhaps that one judge thought Marina gave V/M D/w's terrible lift from their SD at SLC thats why they overscored it )
    What are you talking about? None of this makes sense. Tessa and Scott scored appropriately for the performances they put out at SC.

    I agree with you. I usually notice VM and DW didnt depend from where they skating (pnly at Nationals and this is not about VM). So if they will skate better- they will get better score< wors - will get low score.
    A lot off will depend from tech pannel, because different techn specialists have there own view on how key points must look like.
    In China tech specialist was in tech pannel and this didnt help them.
    So ... The truth is PB could be under IK in Paris. Will see what score they will get in Japan.

    I want to add few words about advertisement.
    The main problem is companies, like P&G, start thinking about athlets only before OG and didnt notice them all 4 years before.
    A lot of skaters did advertisement for them and Samsung this season. So they need to spend time for this, promrotion of team outfit for OG, videos for OG advertisement ect. The good side of this is skaters could made a little money. Especially its important for athlets, wich countries didnt give them prize money for medals at OG.
    I dont like Canada journalists put extra attention to this. To made video advertisement maybe took 1-2 days, but they made impression this athlets spend all the days to promote P&G

    That's always been a big problem pani. It got slightly better before and since Vancouver Olympics but still not as it should be.It gets discussed in the media from time to time, especially right before and after an Olympics but little seems to change.

    Other side. Skaters could relax a little. And i think its good for such a pressure before OG.

    I expect P&B's score to get a nice bump at TEB, but not because of politiks. This was their first int'l outing for the season and they had some miscues. I expect them to clean it up just like V&M did between Finlandia and SC. I also think they still have a chance to win CoC with a good FD... Bobrova & Soloviev struggle with levels so they are beatable if P&B skate clean.

    I expect Tessa and Scott will be in there own level and TEB and dont care about others
    For its about how PB skated today. And like i said before, i wish first to see IK marks at NHK. Maybe PB could be second at TEB, who knows?
    Or you like better, when they talk about Tessa and Scott lost technic?

    Absolutely! Just watched the universal sports coverage (I would pay them NOT to have Tanith, groan.) PB had a 1 pt deduction just for two knees down on the lift exit, and they had a couple stumbles. But otherwise the program is good. I like it, and Nathalie certainly can sell it! B/S on the other hand were sloppy and quite frantic. Hopefully they'll fix it and they haven't adopted that (now somewhat popular) style. I'd say PB are facing the same battle for bronze that VM are for gold... (Though I'm not complaining about the scoring here, just saying!)

    And Shpilband is in troubls now.
    I too would like to be there when he explains the C/L results vs. the P/B results to the French federation president.

    Perhaps Camerlengo/Krylova are not such utter trash (I can't remember the exact words) after all.

    I know I was just saying that scores are alittle inflated at home. Just look at what's happeneing at CoC right now - I'm surely not the only one who's fantasy skaitng is going to be afffected by this because I chose P/B (and also Denis Ten - I am quite shocked about his placement I didn't expect the other guy from china to be first. Anyways Ice-dance.com posted this http://www.ice-dance.com/main/162-ev...ee-dance-event

    “We had listened to, you know, every major piece of music, whether it was “Romeo & Juliet,” “Pride & Prejudice,” “Swan Lake,” and I think as much as we loved some of those pieces, they all have such well-known storylines,
    So V/M were thinking to skate to P&P? Imagine that!

    I'm also willing to wait to see how the marks shake out at TEB. P&B are coming off an injury and made mistakes in their SD. Let's see how it looks and the marks it receives once better skated. There is also the FD still to come.

    Welcome Kristina.

    Thanks for posting. I wonder if the music cut can go up to 30? Lol I hope not. Anyways I remember in the summer when we all thought Anna Karenina was going to be their FD. Looks like that never even made the list. I also love Pride and Prejudice and it's soundtrack. That also could have been a great FD.
