    Max Aaron Cheer thread

    I'm impressed that Max trained and executed a great transition from sport to a highly skilled career.

    Let's Talk Movies #36 - 2020 - Yep it is a new decade

    In the theater now to see House of Gucci. https://www.yahoo.com/now/tom-ford-jeers-house-gucci-185214329.html Note: Tom Ford's comments were not bad. ETA: Post-Movie review- It was entertaining, like watching a train wreck you can see coming from a mile away. I felt tension throughout the...

    Alysa Liu Switches to Colorado Coaching Team

    It is possible that Krall could actually help Alysa a lot in a short time if she can identify simple changes that will help her jumps. We need to remember that Alysa did have quads before, so it is not fear or a feel for a quad that is the problem.

    Alysa Liu Switches to Colorado Coaching Team

    This comment makes me think there may be a legitimate parenting concern completely unrelated skating. I will point out there has been a rise in shootings in the Oakland, CA area very recently, including a two year old killed in his car seat by a stray bullet while riding in his family's car on...

    Alysa Liu Switches to Colorado Coaching Team

    I think Liu can still make the Olympics by winning Nationals and being affirmed by the selection committee. However, at the Olympics she will probably get 6th.

    Alysa Liu Switches to Colorado Coaching Team

    I liked Krall's very grounded coaching, from what I heard in the Kiss & Cry. I thought Laura's approach of farming out to specialists while managing her development was working for Alysa. I thought Scali taking over was just a power grab pulled off via promises of political connections. This...

    Poll: Should the 'q' call for jumps be eliminated?

    The problem with eliminating 'q' is that the judges neither have time nor have had recent practice judging rotations ... That, and judges are typical blind, any way :rofl:

    Should women be allowed to do a quad in the SP?

    I think having the same rules for men and ladies and increasing the value of elements relative to jumps can both be done together or be done independently. I also think it's funny that everybody assumed making the rules the same for men and ladies means changing the ladies rules rather than...

    Should women be allowed to do a quad in the SP?

    There is no additional cost at this time because the skaters can already do it. It's just the rules preventing them. You are right, it is not healthy. However, the current differences in the rules between men and ladies do not actually create a great enough contrast to drive the sport in a...

    Interview with coach Brian Orser: relationship with Medvedeva, admiration for Tuktamysheva,etc

    That sounds fun. Can you share? :2faced: Spoken like a self promoter who doesn't know what they are talking about but thinks they should be in charge because they have a big mouth. By the way, four minute program after four minute program all with similar requirements and structure is...
