    so a DIFFERENT injury?!
  2. [2017] GPF - Ladies SP & FS

    Lol I get it, Satoko's jumps only get called if she might bump a bigger ISU darling off the podium

    Yeah, I think you're right. That and the backloading. It's the only way, like you said, to control your fate.
  4. [2017] GPF - Men SP & FS

    Wow, Shoma lost because of that deduction. That sucks a lot! TBH I thought he had it in the bag even before he even skated. Nathan's score wasn't hard to beat. But it wasn't to be... I don't think I would rewatch any of the programs last night. I thought there were way more URs than were called, but...whatever. On replay I thought Shoma's first 4T and the 3F were UR...but I guess they only call the URs and DGs when the landing is obviously botched. I hope Nathan gets his blade issues fixed, but tbh, I don't understand what's wrong with the blades? Like, I get that boots need to be broken in, but blades? You don't "break in" blades, do you? Can't he just get them made exactly how he needs, or does he not know what he needs? Um, skating on wrong blades...not to mention doing multiple quads...sounds insanely dangerous/scary so please get them fixed ASAP... In both his short and his free he looked pretty scared/tense to even be out there at all. Welp, regardless of how the competition went, congrats to Nathan. He's still undefeated this year! That's really really impressive. Hope he gets those issues fixed soon.

    Okay, the scores were all so high, but geez, everyone skated so perfectly! I guess the curse of the women doing well / the men bombing still continues. Except for Alina's stepout, Carolina's low(er) TES, and a couple of flip/lutz edges, everything else was clean! AND NO URs . I think in a field like this is how we can see who gets favored and who doesn't. Like there is literally nothing short of Satoko making a mistake for any other Team Japan ladies to beat her, although I did enjoy her program lots today as well. TBH I think the more I watch Alina the more I feel her program is unpolished and doesn't make a whole lot of sense. I'd be a little sad if she was the OGM. I'm predicting that the viewers who watch figure skating once every 4 years won't really understand her program or why it's better than everyone else's. I think her interpretation was the weakest of the field. And Satoko's jumps are the weakest of this field...funny how they're in the top 3. I don't favor Kaetlyn but at least she has big, powerful skating, and her programs are entertaining...at least her short is...from a Western/American-Canadian perspective. Her scores are really creeping onto Evgenia's aren't they? Just give it a competition or two... To me, the judges are gunning for: Evgenia, Kaetlyn, Alina: possible OGMs. Satoko, Carolina: possible podium position. Everyone else is a bit of an afterthought.

    beautiful crown. it fits perfeclty
  7. [2017] GPF - Men SP & FS

    oh, yeah, maybe. i guess that only applies to quads even tho 3As are 1.0x GOE scaling too?
  8. [2017] GPF - Men SP & FS

    Isn't Shoma's fall on the 3A supposed to -4 GOE?

  11. Team Russia

    Good news! I hope they all go!!
  12. Team Russia

    I haven't done much research into this issue nor read most of the discussion so forgive me if I fudge a few things...but my two cents is that this is as good of a result as could have happened. The clean athletes will get to compete as Russians, just not under the Russian flag. They can even compete in the team event under a neutral flag. So I really hope they will because otherwise it's not a competition, and whoever wins will not be seen as the true deserving OGM (at least in the ladies' discipline, and maybe team and pairs) -- just like how Mary Lou Retton's win at the 1984 Summer Olympics will always have an asterisk. However, if the doping scandal is anything like the forced doping campaigns in East Germany where you had athletes retiring at young ages, having miscarriages, giving birth to deformed babies, and suffering lifelong repercussions, I could see that the IOC did what it had to do. Unfortunately, the clean athletes end up being treated like collateral damage. But I get the impression that some people are so caught up with seeing it as a punishment inflicted out of revenge, and of forced doping as an unfair advantage rather than a violation of human rights, that they forget about the athletes who had to take these drugs who are the true victims here. And the bigger picture is to send a message that might prevent even one more athlete from any country from being forced to dope in the future. Again, I don't know if it's nearly as bad in terms of severity or scale as past doping scandals, but if it is, then it's something that should be stopped with any legal/safe method possible. Especially since the effects of many of these drugs take years or even decades to become apparent.
