Lets hear the facts. "Pressured" isn't good enough. Lets hear exactly how and by who, then lets see some heads roll.

:disgust: Now there's a useful post. I should point out that both the skaters in question are French.

Rumor was the French skating federation pressured the judge to vote for the Russians so that the Russian judge would vote for the French ice dancers later on. The ice dancing competition was supposed to be fixed, Italians first, Russians second and the French third.

Wasn't there an incident a few years back where a french woman was robbed as well and refused to accept the silver medal. I'm not sure of the name, but I think she deserved to win as well.

Looks like it's not just the Americans who hate the french ;)
j/k by that remark

I hope the other judges remember this when the French and Russians get up for the ice dancing event. I want to see some 0.0s flash across the screen. :D
