OT: Jipped Again :(

Im not sure if anyone else watched the pairs event tonight, but im getting sick and tired of these judges How can these russians sleep at night knowing they won a gold medal by cheating im. How can they even think of themeselves as the worlds best!!! Im not that big of a fan of this sport, but im a huge canadian sports fan, and this kinda stuff really ticks me off



Just had to tell someone that. Even though it doesnt involve soccer, its is about sports and Canada!

I agree, Kiel. Salé and Pelletier were clearly the best, and only a corrupt judging system could have denied them the gold medal.

At least in soccer we don't have to contend with judges.

That one of the reasons I make sure not to watch these events. Also because I have no interest in figure skating except to look at the women.

However we all know that the olympics are corrupt, and the world of figure skating is even more corrupt.

I still don't believe what I heard on the radio (FAN 590) on the way home today. (remember that everybody says the ice dance competition is the most corrupt and that the winners are decided way before the olympics):
The Canadian entries (forget their names) are rumored to have 'finished fifth' eventhough the competition hasn't started yet .
