The Cohen and Rochette defenders are out in full force.
(the Yuna defenders or "bots" as they are nicknamed, take it to a whole new level though)
Great post IP.
What I have learned.....
I was not the only one on this board that was happy when Evan won the GPF, despite the distracting snakes, tan, feathers and those flapping arms.
That my thoughts have changed as to the medal contenders in Vancouver especially in ladies and icedance not so much pairs and the men.
Reading fairly4's take on each competition has been a revelation, especially the racism comments. I must have had my head under sand for the past 20 years because I never realized how widespread this problem was in the skating community. (jk)
Thanks to everyone who commented in this thread, a very enjoyable read indeed.
I don't notice any difference. Language and cultural impact maybe, but everything else (criticizing and defending) is the same.
