    Alysa Liu Switches to Colorado Coaching Team

    Sadly, you're probably right. The only time when people were more interested in Lysacek was when they'd bring him up with Weir, their profiles and interviews together were often aimed at "conflict" and that was the main interest. The scandal of Kerrigan/Harding did bring figure skating to my...

    Music You Hate in Skating

    Yes, The Matrix and Requim too! We hear Requim less now, let's hope nobody brings it back. One of the few Fever programs I do like. Now I also remember the FD of Chock/Bates who skated to it, when, 2019? I liked that FD. After watching The Queen's Gambit, the version of Peggy Lee got stuck in...

    Traitor :lol: No it's fine, at least you won't be suffering during those pieces then.

    Music You Hate in Skating

    My poor mind remembers Scheherazade (and whatever spelling you might use for it), I've never liked any program skated to it and barely tolerated the Curry exhibition to it. Any version of Nothing else matters, I used to like the original one. Every time Mtv aired it (yes, I'm so old I remember...

    Music You Hate in Skating

    Sometimes I don't feel like watching a program because of the music, even if it's a competition. Depending on my mood, I might sit it out and once in 1000 programs the choreography and the way the skaters brings it, will make me enjoy the program nevertheless. Ruh and Daisuke did that with Blues...

    Unpopular Opinions

    I love both great jumps and artistry in 1 program, something which is increasingly difficult to find today. Commentators often say what a great performance a program was, meanwhile I saw great jumps and good or okay skating and did enjoy it, but miss the artistry. Jumps are spectacular and when...

    Top 10 Figure Skating Forums, Discussions, and Message Boards

    I use both Golden Skate and this forum. They keep me updated enough.

    A performance from the past it just gives you chills. Please post one

    Most Romeo/Juliet programs bore me, mostly same music and not very interesting programs. This was one of the few I did enjoy. Thank you for the reminder of this FD. And thanks to everyone in this thread, for the many programs I either never watched or haven't seen in a long time.

    Netflix “Bad Sport” documentary series (featuring SLC Pairs)

    Logically, only the person who hides that he or she is already in a serious relationship, is to blame and not the person who had no idea. There are more exceptions than what you and I mention. The 3rd party is definitely responsible too when the 3rd party is knowingly (is that even a word?)...

    Netflix “Bad Sport” documentary series (featuring SLC Pairs)

    I think they're both wrong: the person who is in a relationship and seeing someone else in secret as well as the person who is single, but doesn't care about sleeping with someone who is already in a serious relationship. Where is the respect for each other if people think cheating is okay...

    Tarah Kayne details abuse allegations against sanctioned coach Sappenfield

    I have mixed feelings about Brennan. I want to believe that she cares about the safety of the athletes and that main goal is to fight for that, by bringing attention to all kinds of abuse happening which the public won't know about. Then she says or writes something which makes me doubt her and...

    Tarah Kayne details abuse allegations against sanctioned coach Sappenfield

    It's already difficult for victims to speak out while competing, they often get the blame when they speak out later, people start victim blaming. It's not a lot easier for other skaters who are still competing to speak out while competing either, they get in trouble for both speaking up and not...

    Tarah Kayne details abuse allegations against sanctioned coach Sappenfield

    When there is a chance that someone was also a victim of abuse, people should think about that traumatic possibility when they want to ask questions. Of course these things should be openly discussed and not hidden, but there is a way to do this without hurting possible victims. Every victim...

    Netflix “Bad Sport” documentary series (featuring SLC Pairs)

    Thank you for explaining. Now I understand the many comments of people working on this such as "we were already busy developping a new scoring system".

    Netflix “Bad Sport” documentary series (featuring SLC Pairs)

    I watched the episode today. I agree they didn't explain enough of what happened there. I missed different angles. I'd love to watch a documentary one day which doesn't take any side and shows all angles, allowing the audience to make up their minds about this. Little things also annoyed me...
