the failure of the US to close out the game does not excuse the refs basically trying to hand the game to Canada.
So you're blaming this game on the refs

Wasn't it in Seoul '88 that they gave Roy jones the silver but then named him the most outstanding boxer in the Olympics to do damage control...

Yep, no one was more surprised or embarrassed than the Korean, Park Si-Hun

0 of our girls are sitting there blaming this loss in anyway on the refs. There was 0 offense the whole 3rd period which was the gameplan. They played not to lose and it bit them end of story.

That's what happens when you sit on a lead.

The women's hockey team must have NEVER watched a Lou Holtz game at USC.

I feel the same way, as does Ashley Wagner...I was shocked at the scoring this morning as well.

I caught the final 1.5 minutes of the 3rd period and saw the tying goal, didn't get to see the OT. Two days two devastating losses to those Canucks.

The Sarah Burke story was just heartwrenching. She played such a vital role in getting the ski halfpipe in the X Games and then the Olympics. And died doing what she loved.

Controversy with the Russian ice skating judges. One is married to the Russian IOC director, and the other Russian judge was banned from the Nagano games for cheating.

Everyone here in Korea is livid. The Russian girl got inflated marks on both days. Kim Yu Na is the best in the world and she got screwed by a corrupt system. I mean its on every channel and every pair of lips in the city. You have to also realize this is the most followed and biggest endorsed athlete in the nation.

Doesnt surprise me at all. I didnt realize that these skaters got points for just attempting a trick! Thats ridiculous. like one of my friends said, you dont get a point in hockey for a shot on goal. Thats why Ice Skating judging is ridiculous, they should let fans judge from now on with 1-10 dunk contest signs.

And I apologize for being critical of Ice Skating on your Birfday, KT!! lol

haha no worries! Everyone is entitled to their opinion! But I think you'll find that credit for what is attempted is in one way or another there in all the judged sports. Then you get deducted for execution. It's kind of the only foolproof way to reward difficulty. Otherwise there would be no reward for having a difficult routine.

But of course I know that's why a lot of people have issues with judged sports.

The winning Russian skater is up next. Then the two Americans, then Yuna Kim is last. You guys be the judge!

In my honest opinion, until that fall Gracie was better than the gold medalist Sotnikova.

EDIT: After watching it again, I would have Yuna winning gold. Then Sotnikova, then Costner. Without the fall I would have put Gracie in bronze. Maaaaaaybe silver.
