I love it so much!Their gala program this year, wow. Now that's how it's done!
I personally love Chock/Bates too but I do think the scores should’ve been closer. Chock/Bates are a little technically stronger, but Weaver/Poje have a deep emotional quality to their skating that’s just stunning.In my eyes, WEAVER and POJE should have won 4CC today!!! There's no way Chock and Bates were superior!!!!
ITA but they were really marked down on GOE's and PCS's from certain judges....(like the Polish judge). So the score was lower than it should be and this will count for where their starting position in the RD at worlds will be which can easily decide where they finish.Their FD is my favorite by far this season! I think they were underscored a bit relative to others but I’m glad that they got a strong result here.
I never thought of that, but now I’m madITA but they were really marked down on GOE's and PCS's from certain judges....(like the Polish judge).

the marking at Euros in ice dance were also weird ....too little distance between P/C and next couple down as well as Polish team given brilliant marks on a heavy and not sharp skate although they are an ok team. This sort of judging does effect your groups and eventually ultimate result at worlds. Very disappointed with this.Yes, I noticed that. I had looked at the detailed marks just to see what the different judges were thinking about the different teams, and to look at how their personalities came through. Some marked consistently high, some consistently low, but I think most of the judges could defend their marks as being within a reasonable range, allowing for personal preferences. The Polish judge's marks, though, were . . . unusual. I was actually a bit shocked by them. I guess it's possible that it represents what he honestly thought, but I've watched ice dance for enough years to be a bit cynical about how he arrived at those marks and whether his motivation was truly to mark honestly what he saw.
OMG I’m bi too, but I think I’ll stick with one at a time! Kaitlyn and Andrew are both gorgeous though.
I already cleared it and deleted cookies to be doubly sure. Lol you’re hiding it from the Mr., I’m hiding it from my parents. #partnersincrimeIn Word, 'clear recent history' under History.
Mr. Japanfan would certainly be perplexed if he found out I had looked at/visited that sight.
yurokis40 - Kaitlyn and Andrew have been one of my favorite dance teams for a long time now, and I like their FD. But, even so, I have to admit that it's not great - especially in comparison to Gilles/Poirier's FD. It's a bit old fashioned, the choreo is not as rich as G/P's, they have less transitions (or such is the impression), but neither they have the speed and smoothness of P/C or even H/D to make up for it. And, when most elements except step sequences are either a bit weak (like their twizzles and spin), or just not quite perfect (like their lifts which are difficult and well executed, but, again, not in comparison to, say, Chock/Bates or even Gilles/Poirier), I think it also adds to the overall impression and makes judges want to mark down also in PCS.
I'd say they have to do something about the FD - like, add a few more transitions, although time is short. Perhaps change the last position in their spin - it's beautiful, but it's slowing the spin down. With twizzles, they have two choices - either continue to do them tentatively to avoid making serious mistakes and loosing levels - and get pretty low GOE again, or go for more speed and hope for the best. But I am sure they and their coaches know what they have to do better than me and are aware that they can't just rely on their RD which is so good.
H/D are another story, though. They are marked highly not just in US.
I was just trying to think about what they could improve to get better marks in the FD at Worlds, as I really want them to get another Worlds medal. I think there is a place for that in their fan thread.Why are we picking apart W/P in their fan thread? Plenty of opportunities to do that in the play by plays and the main dance thread.
