    Sorry, I've only mentioned skaters I've watched myself in the "younger" past, so no "old" Gladiators here! State others, if you like!

    I'm editing my post because I had forgotten about Dick Button. He is definitely my choice fro greatest male skater of all time. John Curry would be my choice for greatest artist of all time.

    No John Curry? No Dick Button?

    It was a hard choice between Kurt and Alexei, but I had to go with Alexei. He has very good competitive programs that are fun to watch. I think he can only get better with Pro (fun) programs if we can get some sort of pro competition back on track.

    Kurt Browning is incredible, but I really think his best skating programs have come as a pro. The jumps went away, but most of his programs have been amazing. I think Nyah is his best ever. Not the version where he added in jumps for a competition, but the no jump pure skating routine.

    Edited: I can't believe I overlooked Brian Boitano. AAAGGGHHH!
    It's very hard to choose between the 3.

    Kurt Browning is my all-time favorite athlete.

    I would add Brian Orser and Todd Eldredge to the all-time greats list.

    When I read the title of this thread, Kurt Browning immediately came to mind, so it was an easy choice for me.

    It is a difficult choice for me to choose Kurt or Alexie.

    Kurt is the one bring my attention to man FS. Alexie is the only other male skater I would follow event by envent for now. I like both of their skating and the passion they poured into their program. However, based on personal achievements in eligible rink, I have to choose Alexie.

    Plushy has the potential to be the best. He is only 20 years old and already a two time world champ,not to mention a silver medallist in his first olys. Alexei is great too.

    Kurt he takes command of the ice, and Alexei even says he takes a lot from Kurt's skating and has huge ammount of respect, so I take that to mean Kurt's better than Alexei in Alexei's eyes...

    Scott Hamilton is a clown, and I love him, but he's not anywhere near the brilliance of a serious Kurt(though Scott's had a few of those serious pieces that remind you why he's 1984 Olympic Champion)

    I agree about those that should be on the list... I'd like to add Paul into the mix... comeback kid if there ever was one! :D
