If you look at the judging criteria for PCS for Ice Dance, you get this huge very detailed table. It gives you all of the information but it doesn't tell you anything about how to actually, practically make those judgements. What if a team meats most of the criteria for Choreography mark 7.00 but some only to an extent and one almost not at all (and you'd have to remember it in the first place )?
After watching the SD, I cant help but notice that Fabian does not look very fit in general. The Twizzles were just... lets not even go there. I am sad for this team to be honest.
I haven't seen it yet but I am sad just looking at where they are. I don't know what it is so far this season but you say Fabian doesn't look fit and maybe that's it. To me he's looked like he's already 'gone', like retired, like he knows what ther fate is and he doesn't want to waste his time with this anymore. I can't say I blame him.
I hope it's not true either and I'm sure if it it was it wouldn't be intentional. We know how hard last year was, we seen it in their faces that's not easily forgotten and it's hard to get motivated again and fight back especially after the career they've had, they aren't new to this and sometimes you've just had enough. I absolutely love them and I just want them to forget the judges, forget it all and just skate for themselves and their fans.
Right. Even if they feel like they can't win a medal, they should go out like Delobel/Schoenfelder in the Vancouver OD and FD when they fell behind after the CD. Just enjoy the experience for what it is and give a performance you can be proud of when you re-watch it in a few decades.

Sometimes I think that ice dancing would be more interesting and fun if all the dancers did was twerk on the ice.
So glad they were able to push up to 3rd at the GPF. 3rd place is where they belong. Those horrible, hunchbacked, flailing russians should be last.
Clearly Fabian has decided to come out of retirement What a difference! I am so happy for them. They went out there and nailed it. That is the first time I can honestly say that I am liking this FD, I can see it, I can feel it, I am a fan! It's sure as hell is better that that sad FD B/S have been given. i feel bad for them but I really want this for P/B, and it looks like that Olympic medal ain't out of reach yet.
I am soo excited for them! I thought they performed their FD really well and definitely deserved bronze! And I'm also glad people are warming up to their FD!
They were so on today--I couldn't be more happy for them.
