hooligan sidekick: Yeah, there's evidence that pairs event in 2002 was fixed


I wouldn't say "evidence" so much as "confirmation", considering the judge did cop to it.

As for the results being reasonable, I don't know, it's pretty much impossible to justify giving the Russians better presentation marks than the Canadians, and that's what cost Canada the gold (initially).

hooligan sidekick: But it's also hilarious how much Canadian fans freak out when you point out that the original results were perfectly reasonable anyway, based on the quality of the skating that night.


Holy shiat no there wasn't! That was what launched the whole scandal, was the fact that the Canadians were FLAWLESS.... like, to the point where they should've gotten perfect 6.0s across the board or at least a few of them (and definitely nothing lower than 5.9). They couldn't get that routine any more perfect. And the Russians made one big stumble in their routine, so it was a blatant case of 1 obvious mistake vs 0 mistakes. THAT is what made everyone give the quizzical dog "huh?" because it was something that everyone could see. Even people who didn't know anything about figure skating could see it. It raised a lot of flags and prompted a lot of probing questions, and the truth eventually came out.
