Good point.But there's a difference between wuzrobbing your faves on a message board and constantly harassing the ISU all day every day and others on social media because you think they got it so wrong.

Hmmm...after the jumps were done, he was 10 worthy. Before that, he was fairly reserved.Protocols out. Nathan got two 10.00 for performance.
Two judges gave the choreo seq +5
Two judges gave it +3
@livetoskate, I posted the link to listen to a recent podcast featuring Torgashev in the U.S. Men's thread earlier this month: https://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/th...eason-news-updates.107352/page-7#post-5962025Anyone know how Andrew Torgashev is doing? Out of the other American men, I think Andrew has the best overall skating package if he can land quads.
Translator of Hanyu's statement speaks at this point of the presser: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pftQAOQ3fN0&t=915sOMG. I need to watch this press conference... Apparently Yuzu is still aiming to land the 4A!!!!!
I love Torgashev’s skatin, but seriously he wishes he had Zhou’s consistency. Or Pulkinen‘s.Anyone know how Andrew Torgashev is doing? Out of the other American men, I think Andrew has the best overall skating package if he can land quads. Tomoki can be exciting & fast, but he is very sloppy.
Well... she wasn't wrong, lol.I'm watching the Tara & Johnny show version of the LP, and the best part is Tara to Johnny, after asking his opinion: "Right, but I'm not gonna argue with you but...." and then proceeds to tell him all about how Yuzuru cannot catch Nathan with a score like that.
Welllllll... I'll be a slightly different opinion. Of course he's technically ambitious, but the program really doesn't come alive until the step sequence in the middle. And what a beautiful sequence that is, it completely changes the mood and Shae knew what she was doing.Just chiming in that those coming up with the regular (and overdone) "that program was just jumps" crap... I would strongly suggest y'all rewatch Nathan's program and close your eyes during all the jumps.
This was a real work of art. Nathan's dance background is evident. His skating skills are fantastic, his footwork is first rate, and his passion is on point.
(Most professional musicians -- of which I am one -- consider Philip Glass' music interesting, but quite one-note. Nathan brought out the artistic possibilities.)
Now watch Yuzu's and Yuma's programs, doing the same thing. I dare you not to appreciate Nathan's artistry. Go ahead, fight me on it.
They both forgot one thing: Hanyu may have only 4 quads but with two triple axelsWelllllll... I'll be a slightly different opinion. Of course he's technically ambitious, but the program really doesn't come alive until the step sequence in the middle. And what a beautiful sequence that is, it completely changes the mood and Shae knew what she was doing.
Johnny's arguing point to Tara, that she didn't let him finish, was that Yuzuru had a small chance to still pull it off, even with one less quad because his elements may receive higher GOE and I actually 100% agree with that. It's one thing missing from Nathan still- just a bit more variety going into/out of some of the jumps to get +4's consistently and maybe even some +5's. Of course the judges still give him some, but I always feel like his GOE average should probably be one lower than he receives just based on the criteria. Then again, Yuzuru has some crazy transitions surrounding his jumps and it surely makes them even more difficult to get right.
Nathan really is capable of setting a mood through an entire program, and I understand the work it takes to do the quads he is doing, but I just want a littttttttle bit of something prior to the steps. From that point on, though, just remarkable. Is it Kolyada level masterpiece? No, simply because it's not consistent throughout. But it's also not even close to crap. See Semenenko's attempt at a program for that.
For me, it would've been something like Kolyada.........Brown....Aymoz..Chen.. in terms of overall PCS in the LP. And that's even with me being no fan of Brown's program.
Well it's just better to say Chen has the most artistic program ever created to make certain fans furious, maybe But I also think, as you said, the technical skaters get type-casted into that and people are so fixated on watching their jumps that they don't notice anything else going on or choose to not watch it as an arguing point.Unfortunately one of the rules to be considered an artistic skater if you must dress the part. Obviously Nathan fails the dressing test
And if you started out as athletic you are never allowed to improve. every time you skate people will say all he can do is jump. The decision was made 10 years ago and they will not change their mind now so there’s no need to argue with them.
