Nightmare Vancouver Podiums
The anti Dream Vancouver Podiums thread.
Understand that this is not for those easily offended, nor for those who are politically correct. This is just for fun.
This would mean no more ice dance at the Olympics
Down with the establishment.
Kostner (if that one wins, THERE IS NO GOD)
Because that podium would really be shameful for any respectable international competition.
Joubert (champions are not supposed to be big babies who whine when other people do better)
Plushenko (plain, robotic, ugly)
Lysacek (the definition of meh)
I guess I don't have any nightmare podiums.
Oh! Actually, I do, but just for Men and Ice Dance.
1. Evan Lysacek
2. Patrick Chan
3. Evgeni Plushenko
1. Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir
2. Oksana Domnina & Maxim Shabalin
3. Jana Khokholva & Sergei Novitski (it's not her, it's him)

I think my biggest nightmare podiums would be a combination of skaters who I don't care for who still EARNED the podium. It's one thing when you favourite skates well but misses out because they "wuzrobbed." But if they don't earn it, and the result is underwhelming.... well, that just plain sucks. So, in my mind
1. Brian Joubert
2. Evegeni Plushenko
3. Evan Lysacek
I've gotta echo BigJohn on this one. This podium would be awful.
1. Miki Ando
2. Rachael Flatt (hey, just cause I defended her in the small pond that is American Nationals doesn't mean I wish she beats my personal favourites).
3. Gedevanishvili (doesn't matter who really, the top two are extremely disappointing)
3. M/T (ditto)
Any podium that doesn't have Shen/Zhao on top is by it's very nature disappointing, but the above podium, particularly the top two, would make me lose respect for the sport.
I actually wouldn't mind Kostner winning the gold because it would be a tremendous performance.
My absolute nightmare:
Plushenko and/or Joubert are not on the podium.
Evan Lysacek wins the gold.
Rachael Flatt on the podium.
Virtue/Moir are not on the podium.
Shen/Zhao don't win the gold.

Mao winning is worse case scenario for you? :frown2:

Bronze: Takahasi or Oda
Pairs: Never really cared for it
Gold: Davis/ White
Silver/ Bronze: No one else annoys me that much

Yes, honestly... I'm really of an old school mindset and to be honest very few of the ladies 'do it for me anymore'. I don't think Mao is terrible - she is certainly very talented - but she does not have that 'adult' entire package that actually many if not most of the ladies seem to be missing these days... It's just a matter of preference. To be honest, the only two senior ladies that I really like are Kim and Rochette, and even both of them wouldn't be in my top 20-30 ladies of all time.

3. Lysacek or Abbott
- this 4 in any other order are a nightmare
Rochette on podium, I think I can stand anyone other
Dube & Davidson on podium
1. Virtue & Moir
2. Davis & White
3. Delobel & Schoenfelder
But this is solely based on not liking the style and programs of those skaters, anyone who skates two (in case of ice dance three) clean performances will fully deserve to be on the podium. In the end they have all worked hard to get there.
End subjectivity,reduce PCS, fix the COP!
My absolute nightmare would be having all of the skaters performing poorly and then having the winner chosen based on who was the least horrible. To be honest, even if the podium would be full of surprises it would be nice as long as those ones would have skated well.
