    I don't think any of us are Chan Koolaid drinkers. None of us have ever said he has the greatest footwork, spins, choreo, and jumps ever. He is very talented but is not without his areas of improvement. Plushenko fans are the ones who have come in and taken issue with everything that has been said. Anyways, this thread is about Patrick! I believe there is already a Plushenko thread in the main forum...which is full of Plushenko "Kool aid drinkers"....one which I'm sure you have visited frequently!

    That's what I thought too but apparently we're wrong!

    very very true!

    But evgeni has been having standing ovations from the audience since he was 15 and skated in Euros 1998. No he doesnt have the best footwork, spins or choreo, but he gets people on their feet, and unless audience is an alien body he has to have something, all this about he just jumps ...anyway everybody sees what he wants to see.
