    I won't go into reasons, there's no need to bash. They're all fine skaters, they just do nothing for me.

    I don't care for Sarah Hughes at all....there are just so many things that need to be fixed with her skating.

    Timothy Goebel doesn't do it for me either, although his quads are great. He just doesn't have any style, kwim?

    Have to agree about Petrova & Tikhonov as well..blech

    Timothy Goebel. Zero personality.

    Maria Butraskaya was one of my least favorite skaters. I could not stand to see her perform in those costumes with the panty so far over the hip that, well, her fanny was practically exposed.
    Talk about distracting. Yuk.

    Butraskaya's skating was usually so clunky, awkward, and forced, with shaky landings, little if any artistry, and usually one or more splattering falls or miscues. Yuk.

    Sometimes the judges gave her scores that really were far, far higher than she deserved. How she managed to win a few of the medals she won during her career is quite beyond me - guess the rest of the field was equally weak.

    Sarah Hughes- The gawkiest skater I've ever seen. She’s also the luckiest girl alive but I won’t go into that. Too bad she's taking a break because I actually thought she looked a little more graceful at Worlds '03 minus the bad, bad technique on her jumps.


    Bonaly- never liked her skating but I do like when she just throws jumps out of no where but her choreography is just thrown in there too and it’s oh so not nice to me.


    However I think these 2 skaters are very nice people. Can’t dislike them off the ice

    Nicole Bobek is another "least favorite" skater of mine. Lots of potential, but lousy training habits. She botched so many programs, pulled out of so many competitions, etc. I just never believed that she would be able to complete an entire program without splattering on the ice.

    Okay, I'll be nice and limit my choices to one per discipline:

    Pairs: Petrova/Tikonov (zzzzz!)
    Men: Tim Goebel (take away the quads and, IMO, there's just not a lot left...and he's certainly had enough time--and access to one of the best choreographers in the business--to improve his artistry by now!)
    Ladies: Surya Bonaly...although she's improved a little since turning pro (but only a little!)
    Dance: Pasha and Platov

    Katarina Witt----I seldom watch her performance. She has never impressed me.

    If I mention her name I will get bombarded with hate mail. But I am not overwhelmed with little girls who try their best to look all grown up especially if they master triple combos. But they do look cute and that's another topic.

    I'm sure all of these people are prefectly nice and all, but on the ice, Yuk:
    Sarah Hughes
    Mike Weiss
    Ilia Kilmkin/Stanick Jeanette - They both have really good basic skating , but those outfits distract you waaaaay more than they should (the same can be said for about 90% of the dance teams)

    Ben Ferriera
    Todd Eldredge
