Nobody should bitch about Trusova just jumping because face it, that's exactly what Nathan does. Which is fine as far as I'm concerned. There isn't much time for anything else when you're doing a hundred quads in your program.
I complained about Nathan. Does that mean I have permission to complain about Trusova?

I would typically agree and definitely this was the case last year with his LP, but I didn't see it this year. Not much preparation into the jumps, some interesting (not to mention difficult) transitions, and an ENGAGING program. It used to be just kinda skating through everything.
This. I mean are people watching a different program? He's doing so many more transitions in and out of the jumps. He's dancing through the program. It's so good.

My two favs go 1-2 on the podium. So happy. I wish I had decided to fly to Vegas for this. Congratulations to Aliev too! Super pumped!!!

299.09! wow! Have y'all ever noticed Bloomingdale's prices. I noticed it years ago. They're like 29.99 or 39.99 or 99.99. Yep, Nathan's right up there with Bloomingdales! :cheer2:

Very embarassing for all men skating really!! I guess brown would be considered sub ladies now in jumps?
Not certain WTH you were watching, but if there was no room for that kind of hella artistry in Figure Skating, it would be a Jump Competition. Perhaps you are watching the wrong sport for your taste and should go search elsewhere?

This is actually a serious problem. We're now in so deep with this "do quads = get higher PCS" that when you have a genuinely beautiful high-PCS skater like Jason he's getting outscored by four whole points on PCS just because Nathan did a couple of quads. There is no universe in which Nathan is better on the PCS side than Jason and it certainly wasn't tonight.

But it also seems to put a cap on Jason's PCS, as if the judges aren't prepared to go higher than 91 because he doesn't have a quad. And that's a very big problem.

That was a great job by Chen. And that program has a lot of potential for this season! (I even like the top. :shuffle: )

I thought so too. They used their notes to make Aliev’s rotation calls. Seemed a little unfair, considering he was the only skater where they had to do this.
I would think there is a rule that says they have to give the skater the benefit of the doubt in these cases. Because if the angle they do have isn't good enough, they don't base their decision on anything else. But when they don't have any angle, they just guess?

BTW- Aliev's second 3T was invalid because his first Lutz was called 3Lz<< and he repeated that and the 4T. Difference between silver and bronze.
