Irony, people, irony
It AMAZES me how much effort some people are putting into this. WHO CARES???
I'm not even CLOSE to being a fan of either of them but these nitpicks are just too much. One day they will retire and the points will be moot.
As another poster so nicely put it "WHO LET THE BOTS OUT?" Imagine if Asada wins the Olympics (actually, I don't want to )
I like Leonova!
You just never know who's going to peak at the right time. She reminds me of Sarah Hughes.
I refuse to watch any of the "she lips" or she underrotates or she prerotates videos. PERIOD.
Maybe there should be a thread called
She doesn't deserve credit for that: Videos! Pictures! of Jumps you think were unfairly credited. Post right here and only here! Or A.K.A the Mao and Yu-na bashers thread....

First, you have not shown any interest in figure skating except repetitiously to play on a one-stringed harp about Mao Asada's Axel jump, in an effort to annoy other members of this forum. This is trolling. It is a breach of Internet courtesy and is expressly forbidden by the Golden Skate posting guidelines.
Second, the makers of the videos that you are linking to, although they know how to edit video, do not know anything about figure skating. If you are acquainted with these film-makers personally, I urge you to tell them to go to a skating rink and sign up for some lessons. There they will learn proper technique for the Axel jump.

Not to fan the flames, but I looked at the video maker's profile. All the videos have to do with the stupid controversy brought up by Yu Na and her TV network (i.e. they involve Japanese skaters in near misses in various practices). Then the last two are edited videos of Asada's 3A.
Make of it what you will; between ourselves, I could care less about either skater but I smell trouble-maker here. I figure it's the same person because the language style's similar
why dose some Korean always look down and say bad to Japanese skaters, especailly Mao?
becouse of the history? or Some Korean think yu-na is much better than mao asada?
I just hope that these types of uber-fans realize that with every ridiculous trolling video/comment they make, they're chipping away at whatever little shreds of crediblity (if any) they have left.
At least the Kwaniacs didn't resort to stuff like this. Although there was that compliation of 35 Cohen mistakes (I don't know if the maker of that was an MK fanatic though)
People like this clearly turn me away from these skaters. Not that I liked them much in the first place, anyway. That's not to take away from their great talent though.
