    Same here. She leaves me totally cold. I find her "positions" and "postures" artificial and well, dull.

    His Belfast Child program is stunning

    I think it's his personality that everyone loves... he's such a sweet guy....

    and yeah a nice face doesn't hurt either

    I think that is the main point on him....I like his personality, but his skating does nothing for me either.

    boring

    Okay, I know I'm treading on sensitive ground here, what with the recent tragedy in her life, but I find Angela Nikodinov to be a very dull skater. No passion. Even Dick Button said once that she's the kind of skater, that when she skates, that's the time to get up and get a glass of milk....or something like that. Also, Jenny Kirk, another whose skating I find a bit lackluster.....And, the majority of the pros bore me. Though, Todd Eldredge could never bore me....!

    Hi, Leprechuan, welcome to the forum.

    You know what was cool? Those skating lesson clips they showed with Elvis and the little kids on te CBC coverage of worlds.

    PS. The reason that you could not post on the "Overrated Skaters" thread is that it has been moved to the Archives folder. This happens when there are no new posts for 30 days.

    Most boring has to be Kwan. From the looks of the poll results, many agree.

    I really can't get into Stoijko or Yagudin at all. I don't know if I'd really call them "boring" (...okay, Elvis I would), but they just do nothing for me at all.

    And it breaks my heart to say this, but...Brian Boitano. I have so so SOOOO tried to get into his skating. I want to like him in the worst way. But no matter what programs I see or how many people explain why he's great, I just can't enjoy him very much. Don't get me wrong, technically he's amazing, I just can't get into his style. (Which is weird because he's often compared to Brian Orser, who's tied with Todd Eldredge as my second favorite skater.)(I have weird taste).

    Err no. Look again. Michelle is tied for 2nd with Michael Weiss. The most boring is a pairs team.

    Oh and I also find Boitano boring as well.

    And yet, you found her sufficiently interesting to post about her on this poll. That's the funny thing about Michelle. No one is ever neutral about her. Love her or hate her, she always commands the most attention.

    What makes you so sure? If the so called "neutral" people don't post anything on Kwan doesn't mean they're not existing. Maybe they just prefer to spend their time online with the support of their favourite skaters?

    Still, it must be comforting to Michelle to know that you still care enough about her to mention her again on this thread.

    Since this poll began in 2003 I need to update my choices, lol!

    In addition to Sasha Cohen, Scott/Dulebon and Butryskia (sp) I need to add Johhny Weir. Actually, I'll drop the pairs team and Maria and just leave it at Cohen and Weir. They were my "bathroom" breaks this past season.
