I think the judging is completely retarded in Figure Skating. They need to get a wider panel of judges, they need to be in secluded booths with video replay so they can't talk amongst one another, and there should be about 3-4 more judges than there are currently.. they imput their technical and component scores into the computer and algorithm will randomly select which scores are taken into account. That way you can't form an alliance because you won't even know if your scores will be taken into account.

I know they take away the highest and lowest score but in a situation like this.. the Russians vote 5.4 and the Americans vote 5.3 for the Canadians.. you're still getting ****ed by an insanely low score.. and then for the Americans one votes 6.0 and the other a 6.0.. well only one 6.0 gets thrown out and they still get bumped up by the other mark.

So it's quite possible the fix is on. I have to think that it is indeed on. I had no problem with the Russian pairs winning on the Pairs competition because it was clear they were the better skaters. Their performance was amazing and even to someone like me who doesn't regularly watch skating, you can tell that they are better.

It's the same here. Tessa and Scott were unbelievable, every part of their performance was able to take someone like me and find a way to be drawn into a skate. The Americans were stiff, you could see they were technically sound and they had good speed, but they weren't always in unison and there was no connection between the two. Their steps weren't as good and the Canadians lifts were more complicated and done more beautifully.

Beside hockey, snowboard cross is the most exciting sport to watch at these games!

Only thing I'm surprised With this sport is that you can be in a good position in the race and if someone trips you, your race is done, unlike in speed skating. Canadian Kevin Hill was 2nd in the semis with more than half of the race completed, got tripped from behind and didn't qualify...

Terrible games for our short track team.

So far these olympics have been pretty disappointing. Stuck at 4 golds since what day already ?

Snowboard cross is sure fun to watch but this has to be one of the most frustrating discipline for athletes. You train for 4 years and you may get tripped on your first run by someone who's losing his balance or trying a stupid risky move.

Canada started off strong but fell apart at the end. Disappointing games.

Canada 1 is in 2nd place in Bobsleigh after 1st run.

Justin Dorey with the best run in the qualifications of the Freestyle Skying Halfpipe, seeded no.1

He fell awkwardly in his RUN 1 in finals. Run 2 is on, hopefully a medal for a Canadian.

Edit. Nevermind. CBC had the leaderboard wrong.

Rolland fell.

3 guys left.

1 Canadian.

1 guy in first.

If the other guy doesn't pass Riddle, we're guaranteed a medal!
