Outrageous judging in Pairs Figure Skating

    I think the Russians could be stripped if it's found out that they were a part of it. If they are caught cheating then they will lose the medal. Like when a runner test "+" for drugs.

    You'd have to prove that the Russian skaters were involved. I don't see why the Russian skaters would be punished for a Russian judge's actions.

    And leave it to the French to be so easily pressured, wine-swilling surrender-monkeys!

    (just kidding! )

    The whole 'controversy' is incredibly undignified. Its truly beneath a true sportman to act like this.

    Ny the way the Russian's performed with soul and passion and took some chances teh cnadian's were... well...Canadian. . what can I say.

    Seems like there's enough funny stuff going on in skating. This is just the one that broke the damn. So be it. Skating looks to be a bit of a shame and will suffer for the crappy judging. Maybe the should just cancel the rest of the events and give the medals to the already chosen winners.
