    What Advice Would You Give Which Skater?

    I would advise Tim to really focus on his artistry this season. I'd like to see him have the whole package.

    I'd advise Angela to decide whether she wants to go down in skating history as the person who had the most unfulfilled potential or a great skater.

    Tim - My advice is to keep moving at your own pace. It's beginning to work. The weakest point is artistry and that is moving along.

    Johnny - My adivce is to not worry about winning. Just skate and you will.

    Sasha - My advice. Try to skate for the love of skating and not for the medal.

    AP = My adivce is to skate along like a Senior Lady and leave the cute little girl behind.

    Jeffrey - Try enjoying your routine. Skate what you skate best.

    Sandhu - Easy on the excessive styling. Keep most of it but don't let it interfere with your technical.

    I could go on with this for every skater: Elena; Nelidina; Ota, Brian, Stephane, Ilia Klim, etc. but I'm sure you are already bored with me.

    Never Joe, I have learned a lot from you. Is that a good thing or bad thing???

    I would like to tell Alexei, please don't re-injure yourself.

    I would advise:

    Michelle to leave the gold braid off the costumes.
    Michael Weiss to get a new choreographer, dump the hypnotist and just skate. He is certainly capable.
    Timothy Goebel to pull his neck up out of his shoulders.

    Joe, you hit the nail on the head with her. I'd love to see what her skating would look like if she took your advice.

    I'm afraid he is the next male Angela. Last Nats show that after he had a good placement in short, seeing the medal possible, then after made ONE mistake in LP he falling apart. He is lack of mental toughness.

    Don't get me wrong, I really like Angela's style. Her skating showes the softness, grace in natural not like Sasha's a kind forced. But I like Sasha's skating too. Seems Sasha has improved her mental toughness through last season. She did fall apart at Nats LP after the mistakes; but hold together at World's LP after the mistakes.

    What Advise Would You Give Which Skater?

    The word is advice! I don't think I would give any - I will leave that to their coach.

    Oh, I think I would advise them to not say anything at all if they can't say anything nice, and contribute to the conversation at hand. :sheesh:

    "What advice would I give?

    LOL

    My advise:

    Weiss: Firing your family doesn't mean that you don't love them. Stop thinking about being the first to do this or that, ya ain't going nowheres without a good 3axel.

    Sasha: Take up Ice Dancing for fun. Who knows, you may get on a edge someday. Stop searching for the perfect outfit and start searching for the reason you can't deliver to your potential: less sketching, more couch laying.

    Angela: Spend the day with Paul Wylie picking his brain on how a perpetual heir apparent who could be the best, but keeps messing up, can finally get thier head together and skate a clean program.

    A-P: Smile. There, that didn't kill you, did it?

    Timmy: Repeat 100 times "back straight, arms rounded." No, not the opposite! BACK straight, ARMS rounded.

    Alexei....Don't push yourself to do it all...the tour will be there in another year, or two, or five! Concentrate on competing!

    Mike....Concentrate on standing on your feet with the 3A and 4T...give the lutz a break for now, if competing is really what you want.

    Plush....God help us, get rid of the Rocky Horror meets Devo costumer!!!!!!

    Jeff Buttle: Close your mouth, arenas are dangerous nowadays with pigeons and whatnot

    Alexei: Make taking care of yourself a priority.

    Emanuel Sandhu: Take them out. Please.

    :D
