Abbott was 8th in PCS and 24th in TES in the official scoring.
Ah, Abbott. All that unfulfilled potential.
Every time I watch this skate, I think maybe this time, only to be disappointed again.
I am still surprised he made the cut and not even close for original judges!
Seriously? Johnny Weir had a talent for always 'standing out,' whether you think so or not, whether you like him or obviously NOT.
Actually, I do like Johnny Weir. And maybe his costumes and off-ice comments made him stand out, but I was talking about his skating in this particular SP compared to the other skaters. Feel free to tell me how his jumps, spins, steps, PCS, or whole package elevate him above this group of skaters as they performed these programs.
I thought he skated very well for himself at the Vancouver Olympics. I also think that other skaters' skating was at a higher level than his. YMMV.

Ha ha. For bailing on two jumps, such low TES is not deserved.
But anyway, 17th helped Nathan kick his nerves to the curb.
Such a shame the same could not be said about Abbott, who went on to fcuk up a second Olympics after this.
Eh Your opinion cuz you're so special.
And seriously funny the way you pick and choose who you look down on and judge harshly based on your personal feelings. Guess that's what makes you so entitled to serve as tech specialist.
I judged everyone with the same level of harshness, as evidenced by other calls in this event, including one where I was overruled on taking a combo away from a skater.
And noting that Abbott fcuked up both Olympics is not an opinion, it's clear basic fact.
At least Mr. Jeremy Abbott made it to two Olympics, eh! Ahem! As we know, many try but few succeed in winning the opportunity once, much less twice.
Guess that's why it's easier to be sitting on one's fat a$$ in a seat on a judging panel. Of course, not all FSU or ISU judges are freakin' overbearing a**hats. Most are fairly decent, reasonably judicious, and many definitely do try hard, particularly when they can separate their emotions from their judgement skills and their expected political scoring from their courage.
Of course! You all volunteered, the spot is yours until you decline!If the same judges are allowed to do the FS, I'll be happy to be one, and I'll even TRY to do it faster this time.
tech panel is already on FS work, then judges, then watchparty!when will the next be?
Get your bribes in now, folks!Of course! You all volunteered, the spot is yours until you decline!

We will inform you in advance
Yes, he did. And we all knew he was going to screw up the second. At least I can take pride knowing none of the skaters I uber would ever have reacted to a giant cock up like his team event SP with a flippant remark about it being just a warmup.
