Plushenko speaks about Mao's triple Axles

Plushenko went on Japanese TV and spoke about Mao's performance:

here's what he says:

If I were a judge I would have given more points to Mao because she landed two clean triple axles. For the ladies this is what gets you the most points (lol I think I hear him saying "it's like the Superbowl"). Mao did it for the first time ever on this planet (lol  so dramatic), she did two. The judges did not give her enough extra points for accomplishing that. It's all about the extra points. For a jump with such great difficulty they have to give more extra points.

I think Yu-Na would have still won gold since Mao did mess up, however the difference between the two's score should not be 23 points. that's nonsense.
