    Eh...about all the IJS has done is make the marks borderline-incomprehensible to the casual fan (and a lot of coaches) and make it easier to hide the cheating and holding-up in the nine (or ten? I forget) different "Program Component Scores", which aren't defined by the technical caller and with the 'name' skaters (*cough*Plushenko*cough*) frequently seem totally unrelated to what actually happened. Plus they make it take FOREVER to get the marks for each skater and you have no idea what they mean until the protocol sheets come out after the competition's over.

    Oh, and the judges are all anonymous so you can't tell who's vote-trading with who.

    Not to mention, I'm not sure how you could mark six couples at once under something like COP. It's designed around being able to watch each competitor's entire performance.

    Yeah but I thought they were competing in the individual as well as the team competition first.

    Definitely happy to see all those USA standard couples up there. :)

    Cabaret I pretty much expected it. ;) Seems top spots there have been pretty solidly USA or South Africa for last couple years
