I suspect this may be done on purpose for the time being. See how they both do at their second GPs to decide how they want to score them for Nats. Yes I am saying they cook the ice dance scores, but this is not shocking to anyone haha.GrePar aren't competing at Golden Spin, unless the USFS changes their initial entries. I want my pre-Nationals GrePar/CarPon showdown, dammit!
I'm expecting them to get buried at NHK, to be honest. With IAM having 6 teams there, the politics do not favor GrePar at all.I suspect this may be done on purpose for the time being.

ngl my favorite things is Scott in the knc trying to figure out how the scores get that low or whatever is going on in that pretty head of hisSimilarly, Scott should learn to look less baffled and more infuriated. Not that he needs to as much, because he's got IAM behind him. But it couldn't hurt.
SkAm was 3 weeks before MKJW, but then she did MKJW and Warsaw Cup back-to-back. Almost all the skaters are in their high season where they have 3 competitions within a 5-6 week span.I’m glad Kurakova is getting a rest, didn’t she do two GPs and Warsaw Cup in the last month?
They must have just updated it because when I refreshed before checking the Golden Spin entries they still had Malinin, Levito & Chan/Howe listed - but they also had already added the GPF qualifiers, lol.USFS' International Assignments page was updated today (11/28) and now lists for Golden Spin:
Levito (withdrawn 11/28) GPF confirmed
Thorngren (added 11/28)
Malinin (withdrawn 11/28) GPF confirmed; no replacement added
Chan/Howe (withdrawn 11/28) GPF
McBeath/Bartholomay (added 11/28)
Ice Dance (unchanged):
Pffft... I was hoping to read that Tennell was out because she's the one who could really use the training time.Ziegler and Hiwatashi are out of Golden Spin per the USFS website
I’m surprised at Ziegler as I think she could really use the experience. Hopefully the reason is nothing serious. Perhaps Tomoki thought he was better off training nonstop for nationals.
It is a joke, and even much worse than the Asian ‘Open’ last year.I suppose this means there is no livestream either from Golden Spin? I think they’ve usually had one in the past. ETA: I’m seeing the thread with info now in the KissnCry section.
A working results page and a livestream should definitely be a requirement for any CS event IMO.
