    ????



    Why would anyone hate Lambiel? He does beautiful programs and seems like a decent sort. He was very emotional on the medals stand, and his silver obviously meant more to him than many other athletes' silver medals meant to them. A lot of people don't seem to appreciate winning any medal except a gold one!!

    Some of you may be trying to tell me this guy is not disliked, but when people like hockeyfan228 come in and say that a clean Weir, clean Buttle, clean Lysacek, clean Sandhu, and clean Takahashi with quads should all beat a clean Lambiel with quads; and includes outright lies in his accessment(eg-Weir having better spins than Lambiel, ROTFL) it just further demonstrates to me how disliked Lambiel is. Sorry.

    This is getting to be kind of a regular thing where S-fan whips in, asserts that the sky is red, and everyone goes haywire. I don't understand why anyone would want to subject themselves to the thorough drubbing that ensues when this happens, but he apparently enjoys it.

    I don't agree with what he says, but he understands the first law of debate: "If your going to be wrong, be wrong with conviction".

    Thing is, there are plenty of people to step in and make it an interesting discussion instead of a free for all, so it seems pointless to get upset about it.

    That is my motto.

    slutskayafan21,
    You have made a ridiculous blanket statement without any evidence to support your position. You have not so much as quoted one article or interview. Your statement :
    He (Stephan Lambiel) is hated by fans and experts (judges) 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
    is merely YOUR opinion of how others feel towards Lambiel. There is no recordable evidence "every judge" on a panel has ever overlooked a CLEAN Lambiel performance in favour of a CLEAN Buttle, Weir, Lysacek, Oda, Takahashi performance, or for anyone else who might or might not have a quad in their repertoire ... except Plushenko.

    For you to claim that all (skating) fans hate Lambiel ... well, the statement just shows how ill prepared your position really is. Should you have chosen to look, you would have seen countless banners held high by Lambiel's fans, during both the short and long programs at Torino.

    Every broadcast I have ever heard, or article I have read, has without a doubt credited Lambiel as being one of the best, if not the best, spinner in the world. Several have even mentioned that his Quad combination is often better than Plushenko's (LP at 2006 Olympics). Its clear to me, no one has any dislike of the skater. Several NA commentators and sports writers have however, mentioned Lambiel's taste in costumes as being rather unconventional. Is that a problem? If we all liked the same thing to the same degree we would all be running around in the same Armani outfit, skating to the same music and doing the same choreography. What a bore that would be!


    Skating is a subjective sport. Remember?

    These guys DO have cleaner presentation and more precise technique on many elements than Lambiel most of the time, and this is not a comment of disliking (which has an emotional nature)
    but an objective one from me--one of his biggest fans.One criticism I have for Lambiel's skating is that he doesn't always do his elements with polish and stretch. Even though I'd take his musicality and interpretation over Buttle and Weir's cleanly executed elements anyday, like it or not, their elements ARE cleaner and should get higher GOEs.

    BTW, thanks for not pounding me for giving Lambiel the bronze in my previous post. Nuthin' wrong with bronze, as I said, but silver is better.
    Not to rub salt in anyone's wounds, but guess I was thinking of Slutskaya.

    What a strange thread ...

    Actually, I feel the opposite way. Can't say anything about the judges (who can ???) but I have yet to meet a skating fan who HATES Lambiel. It always seemed to me he is liked even by those who have other favourites.

    It would seem from some posts that the entire rationale for HATING Lambiel is because he is perceived by some to be less of a skater than a few of his competitors.

    The question begs: Should we HATE Emily because there are skaters that appear better than her.?

    Nice try, Joe, but I have to confess: I HATE LAMBIEL. Because slutskayafan21 says so.

    I have never met or heard of a soul who disliked Lambiel. I have met a few who didn't like his free skate shirt.......
