    Why is Lambiel so hated by all?

    It seems like judges, skating fans, and experts all hate this guy and his skating. Why is it?

    You have to be kidding. Lambiel is a beloved skater. Where do you get your popularity information?

    He is hated by fans and experts since fans and experts all say Buttle, Weir, Lysacek, Oda, and Takahashi with quads and clean skates would beat him everytime, that Joubert and Sandhu with clean skates would beat him everytime. That is ridiculous if that is true. He is just as good in every area as Buttle, Sandhu or Weir, and he is better in every other area than Lysacek, Oda, Takahashi, and Joubert. Of course he is not Russian, Japanese, American, Canadian, or French though. So because he is not from one of those countries any top skater from those countries should beat him if they skate cleanly with quads even though he has quads and does everything just as well or better than them.

    He is also hated by judges since they give him lower spin scores than much worse spinners like Plushenko and Lysacek, he gets no credit for his oustanding spins at all, they basicaly dont exist as far as scores. He barely got higher PCS scores than skaters like Joubert and Lysacek in the long program in Turin, another example of the judges strongly disliking him.

    To come up with what his scores would be, I have come up with a scoring system that determines what his score would be if he were from a more powerful and prominent country. This is what he would gain at each competition:

    Russia-add 20 points
    U.S-add 20 points
    France-add 15 points
    Canada-add 10 points
    Japan-add 10 points

    The good thing is he lost the Oly gold by over 20 points to Plushenko so even if he were from Russia or the U.S he did not skate well enough to win the Olympics.

    You need to look up the definition of hate. You can prefer one skater over another without hate entering into it at all.

    exactly. hyperbole is all this is..

    and not all skating fans hate him by saying it'd be nice if he'd hit the quad, and IIRC he has done them... he's not the best skater ever in my book... in someone elses book he might be, but that doesn't mean I hate him. I enjoy his skating, and I think he's a sweetie... never met him, but I would like to if I ever got the chance...

    (and for the record I don't consider an American skater to be the best ever, so NBC didn't pay me off... I consider a Canadian to be, and I'll give you one guess who that is lol)

    Skating fans and experts saying every skater in the top 10 should beat him if they land quads and skate cleanly is hate when none of them other than Plushenko are any better than him in other areas of skating, and alot of them are weaker in other areas of their skating is clear hate towards him IMHO. Also judges giving his world best spins lower scores than the two worst spinners in the top 10, and barely higher PCS scores than skaters with far worse PCS qualities is also examples of extreme dislike for him as well. It has nothing to do with him being a god or anything, he is just clearly an outcast of the skating World and has to work harder to get any recognition from anybody. It is all to do with the country he is from, as I said if he were American or Russian he would get alot more doing the same thing.

    you can say all of this until you're blue in the face but where is the proof... Lambiel is World Champ and Oly Silver Medalist.. where is this shut out? When the kid stays on his feet he gets amazing marks!

    Everybody on every skating board I am on says that if Lysacek, Weir, Buttle, Joubert, Sandhu, Oda, and Takashi skated cleanly with quads they could challenge Plushenko, which obviously means beating Lambiel as well who does not challenge Plushenko. The skating commentators and writers say that too.

    Like I said judges had no choice but to give Lambiel his medals. He had quads, and his competitors either had no quads and also made mistakes, or the ones with quads had more mistakes. The judges were in a corner and had no choice but to give him the medals they have. He has never been given anything in his career.
