I asked this in the pbp thread, but I wonder if some skaters are getting less in-person fittings do to rona reasons, and that's why we're seeing more of this. Seems pretty bad this season.
Well, I don't understand judges. They have everything to mark correctly what is up on the ice.
How Morisi Kvitelashvili's Salchow or Toe can have +GOE ? His technique on both jumps is incorrect... the Toe is the worst !
Their result at US Nationals last year seemed to set them apart but similar scores haven’t been earned this year.I think Kneirim/Frazier are a lot closer to the level of their US compatriots, Cain-Gribble/Leduc and Calalang/Johnson than NBC/the US media attempts to present them. I don’t believe they are “clearly the best US team” or at “(capable of) top 5 in the World” level yet no matter how much Tara and Johnny try to spin it as such. I think the 2022 US Nationals pair title is wide open for any of these 3 teams to clinch.
Sara IS gorgeous but she needs a different partner... he seems on the verge of collapsing at the end of each performance. I can see the writings on the wall here ... I doubt he will sticks around much longer.my partner saw their rd for the first time the other day and i was going on and on about how gorgeous sara is and he's like, "ok, but what's up with the fake gun holster??"
(i had no answer to give)
I think the point is, although popular on FSU, this opinion is (unfortunately) unpopular amongst the skaters/coaches/choreographers. The question I have is why is that?!I believe you have confused this topic with the "Wildly popular opinions" discussion,dear.
As much as it would suck for the GPF to be cancelled, I would much rather sacrifice the cancellation of the GPF as long as Zagreb goes forward with full fields.
GPF must be no higher than 15th, and I daresay that it is lower than 36th.Oh boy! Seems like bossman has to play teacher once again! Folks, get in shape, off-season is over!!!

It’s a fashion / generation issue. Back in “our” day, we’d be mortified if our swimsuits were ill-fitting behind or not offering decent coverage.
I think it was conditioning based on the fact that it was the twizzles where the most noticeable mistakes or wipeouts used to occur in ice dance, plus seeing them really well done and presented well makes that element a bit more noticeable for the audience than a footwork sequence does. At least, the twizzles used to be where teams would tend to wipe out. Back before this Olympic cycle, one partner messing it up would hurt the entire element's scores so there was a bit of "do or die" that was comparable to jumps in singles or pairs.I like Irina's 2006 Olympic LP. I never understood all the hate that the program received.
I'm annoyed at the obligatory audience applause after every set of twizzles. It's a twizzle, not a some crazy quad or quad combo. Yes, I know twizzle is hard but every ice dancing pair can do them.
The Japanese ladies in general are immaculately packaged. I may not always care for a particular look, but they all seem to be put together appropriately for their programs and there is no lack of attention to detail, hair, makeup, everything. With the exception of Riku Miura, who I can’t figure out at all. Her blue short program dress doesn’t fit, and her black long program dress is not at all flattering. Hair and makeup are bare minimum. Someone needs to bling her up a bit!Maybe skaters should learn the secrets of Japanese dressmakers. There are no wedgies in Japanese skating (or not many, anyway). At least that I've seen. I don't know how they secure them, but those panties don't move. LOL.
Hmmm. I pretty much agree. But I have seen a couple of fan ones.....didnt Bradie Tennell wear one?I prefer seeing the women in all disciplines in a skating dress because I don't like unitards or catsuits, whatever you call them. I am glad "men in tights" went away. I like pairs and ice dance costumes to compliment one another. I have no problem with bling, I love it.
