"One large reason for the lack of buzz is our collective indifference to the Games' marquee sport, the one that traditionally brings in the biggest ratings: figure skating," Daily Finance reports. "Blame the Code of Points, which keeps individual judges' identities secret from the audience. Blame the internet, which reminds longtime fans and newcomers of the sport's glory days -- and how far it could be pushed, technically and artistically. Blame the ISU, which created a slew of new messes in attempting to "fix" older ones. Blame the economy, which has relegated off-year skating to obscure cable channels and, for hardcore fans, to icenetwork.com (for a $30 annual subscription)."
