    I agree with Buttercup's recent post on this topic.
    Let's not trash any skaters or complain too much until after they have skated and we have seen the podiums.

    Yes, I believe you did skip the "sharking comments" about Evan and Rachael at this topic. That is your choice but then don't sound so upset if Plushy is getting trashed because he is not the only one.

    I think this is an unfortunate thread but it seems to be very popular with GS posters.

    In the post I used as just an example Joubert was the one mentioned if finished fourth not Plush, but thanx for giving me directions how to behave here.

    I could say "look who's talking"

    Back on topic - what is all this talk about Joubert NOT being able to handle a 4th place finish? Wouldn't that be better than a 6th place finish or an 8th place finish?

    Is he really such a poor sportsman?

    I remember Joubert's disappointing performance at TEB this season and comments young skater Adam Rippon made about Joubert. He said something like "Brian came back and shook his hand and congratulated him on winning his first Sr GP medal."

    Rippon said he thought it was a very nice thing for Joubert to do - and that Joubert's kind gesture meant alot to him and made him very happy.

    I hope Brian skates his best in Vancouver and I supsect no matter what the results are he will handle it with class and good sportsmanship. I like his interviews and never take them too seriously even if they can be fun to talk about.

    Well any interview I saw of people finishing 4rth at the Olympics said it was the worse feeling in the world. Just saying.

    Also, there are many threads I do not like or approve of, and what I do about them is simply ignore them, not read them, and certainly not post in them. I mean come on... Don't be party poopers. Fine if you consider yourself above this thread, but actions (or lack of in this case) speak louder than words .

    Fair enough points but it might seem to some there is quite a difference in arguing about the results of a competition as opposed to wishing bad luck to certain skaters or as Buttercup mentioned - trashing them before they have even skated. Last time i checked this thread was not locked and only availbale tor posters who agree with it's premise.

    Maybe you don't agree ot see any difference but I do. I am opinionated and I have my favorites like many here do. But I will not have a "nightmare" if certain skaters win medals in Vancouver.

    funny janetfan after all the double standar I have we seem to agree, i m quoting myself
    Is this thread created to trash Joubert, Evgeni or whoever we dont like??:frown2:
    and I had just said the same as you. Maybe i dont have as much softisticated english but that was my point. I didnt know I had to make a list of all eligible skaters, I thought whoever covered that.

    I don't see anything wrong with this thread. Sports fans do this all the time for the major sports- what makes skating any different? That is, if you believe it

    You are always so tricky AJ.

    I get that this topic is mostly for fun and it's OK with me. The plain truth is I don't have a Nightmare podium.
    I am not a big Joubert fan - but I am not against him either. Maybe he needs to medal or not finish 4th - either way I hope he brings his best to Vancouver.

    I don't have a dream podium either - maybe I am lacking in imagination

    I do have a reality podium OK. Does that count

    (wait that might possibly happen)

    And I agree Wicked... I don't think Brian would take it well if he finishes 4th. But I think it could be a reality.
    Oh the more Johnny fluff the better! Pour it on NBC! That clip was adorable BTW. I think all the non-Johnny fans may be a little bit jealous that Johnny gets all the press and publicity. But that's because he has a personality, he's witty, constantly entertaining, true to himself, and he's magnetic, artistic and just all around fabulous. He is a global phenomenon and a superstar. No matter how many golds Evan and Jeremy collect they can never reach the superstar legend status that Johnny is achieving as we speak. And watch out Vancouver he's ready to rock the tassel!

    I don't think that there is anything wrong with saying who you don't want to win. That being said if the mens podium includes Plushenko, Joubert and/or Lambiel I will be very disappointed.

    If Shen/Zhao do not win gold I will probably scream very loudly.

    If Domina and Shablin or Dolebel and Schoenfelder win any medal I will scream very, very loudly.

    There were many "unfortunate threads" and posts about Rachael Flatt after she won Nationals too. This thread is sunshine and butterflies compared to those posts....

    Already did that. Page 5.

    Although I didn't list just a "dream podium", I listed other "acceptables" as well.

    I think this thread is okay. Just keep it about their skating and not attacks on their character, and definitely not on the poster's character

    We all have our favourites and our definite non-favourites. I'll admit some people's dream podiums are my nightmares. But, it's all good, because we're all skating fans!

    Well for those who can't access it on nbcolympics.com, they finally have it on YouTube!

    Not necessary a nightmare podium, but more like a nightmare exhibition... Plushy skates to that Dima Bilan song "Believe" with Bilan and Edvin Marton in person, just like in Eurovision 2008.
