Gurl, I haven't watched this result to comment on it, but can you blame us when Patrick Over Score Chan regularly gets ridiculously high scores even for error strewn programs? I can't even count how many times he has fallen and had several mistakes in one program, but still out scores everyone else. At the very least there is a problem with Chan's scores, and literally everyone I've ever seen speak about this agrees, unless they are Canadian.

And it's not some witch hunt against Canadians anyways. I can only remember goodwill towards Buttle, for instance.

There were people that complained about Buttle's scores, too.

Not that I think this is a "witch hunt against Canadians"; that's nonsense.

Well I think this program is flat. Except for the great lifts at the end, this FD has an obvious lack of creativity and originality and emotions. For me White/Davis and Pechalat/Bourzat have both a far superior FD. But we all know they'll be overscored all season long like the last 2 years. Of course they're technically good but i think W/B and P/B are way better.
They have a nice short dance.

Re: ~ The Figure Skating Season 2012-2013~

I really only like Moir, because he has a nice physique (shallow). I hate Virtue/Moir as a team. I find them so dull. I can see they have skills and technique, but I've never felt anything watching their performances. Their Carmen carried little emotion, and I preferred the other team's version. At Skate Canada I found the judging of ice dancing so suspect that I just ended up shaking my head (not that Virtue/Moir shouldn't have won, obviously they were the best this week). Ice dancing judging sucks...still.

I only saw Fernandez skate in the long program. Nice to see him coming back. Still, he's no Jeffrey Buttle. Wish that kid could have pull it all together at the crucial competitions.

I'm such a sucker fgoods skater who has great spins and she's definitely mastered spinning. On the whole though it felt like she rushed through her moves and never let them have the proper finish, that obviously wasn't the case for her spins and foot work sequence. In those two areas I rather enjoyed her.

I love Lipnitskia. She could break Tara Lipinski's record of being the youngest Olympic champion.

Mao Asada won Cup of China! #TeamMao

Re: ~ The Figure Skating Season 2012-2013~

I was surprised to hear that Mao was considering retirement this summer It would be such a great waste.

imo, Weaver/Poje need to change their free dance. Twice they've beaten Bobrova/Soloviev in the short dance, twice they've been beaten in the free dance. I just don't think the judges like it.

My Forever Fav: Jelena Dokic

Serena Williams, Ana Ivanovic
