It's nonsense...he lacks it now...I dunno what you think of artistry, but it's Yagudin who was always cleaner but less artistic, memories fade... Plushy was ahead of evrb in artstic impression and program components, remember how many funny or tragic masterpieces he had...
You get wrong interviews or cut and made up interviews, I have never ever heard a bad word from him... Right now he thinks the judging was fair but he does not name himself a favourite, he said there are many skaters capable of capturing gold. From his interview you get an impression that he's very tired and is unlikely to shoot! It'd the hardest Olympic, I'm ageing, it's becomming more and more difficult to perform etc.
Personally I doubt he's going to be clean and win, but it's not only about free skate, I truly believe that this short program music and choreography is a huge mistake, the music was so slow and monotonous, if only he had chosen something faster he would have shown better footwork and emotions and get better results.
I do not name any favourites, the cleanest will win, I doubt anybody except Plushy will risk and jump quads so everyone is equal and Plushy's advantage in Tes will be compensated by others good PCS.
What kind of sportmanship was when Plushenko has finished his SP he pulled out his unvisible sword in the middle of the rink, lifted up and put it back to his belt with a carriaage of a war hero. Almost like saying " I've killed them all right now!! " It was nothing to do with a respect of the other competitors just a part of his self-advertising circus like circulating in the middle of the rink minutes after he was called to start his programs. He also never missed not to have a final position in the end of a program (like he did also in Torino), just circulating around the rink for about 1 minute or more before a bow, celebrating himself. His overwhelmed pride and "narcism" also avoid him to pay attention to any kind of musics during his programs nowdays. He just don't care.Ughhhhh.
I really would like to see him lose because of his bad sportmanship!
I never thought I will wish someone to lose in my life, I've never did it before!

Ever considered that he might not do those positions anymore because he is kind of old? It's possible that those positions took a great toll on his body, very possible actually.
Lysacek takes out the Quad because of his health and that's so great of him and sensible. But if Plushenko takes something out, it's because he is e-v-i-l and wants to convert skating into a masculine X-games competition.
Artistry is such a battered word around here. Every fan sees their favorite with 'artistry', The better descriptive word should be Presentation.
Plushenko has a certain style which he presents to the judges and public as does each skater in the competition. Some skaters enhance their presentation each season. I have not seen that in Plushenko this season. For me, he skates in a very heavy way that each element (particularly jumps) shows technique. he does this very well but I have yet to see him dance in his programs. For others, his jumping prowess obliterates any sort of connection to the music. At the beginning of his program, he will crossover in circles for his main 3 jump executions with drum rolls which catch the eye of Scot Hamiton and his legion of fans. But is that choreographically artistry? It is point-getting, and so why not? It's the same as other Sports which do not use music.
Evgeni dropped the bielman after 2005 worlds and the double hernia, this was the last time i saw him doing it. After surgery that year he continued to do the donut but it was not as before and it made my heart hurt as I felt pain watching it. I doubt his body can do it now otherwise he would do it in his spins.
-Maybe he did the sword like I did my business I skated clean I m happy??? Or whatever?? He did it to intimidate 2 groups after him?LOL
-Plush skates circles before cause a skater has ONE minute from ISU to prepare for his program maybe???Plush has taken all this minute since he was 15 years old to concentrate..you blame a skater of what he does before a program as his preparation??
he took a one minute to celebrate after???He celebrated after sp and I missed it??? Even so, skaters have their moment, it is their moment, Chipeur stayed on ice long, Lysacek stayed on ice and I thought it was a great moment for him by the way, if you have ever competed in your life, these are emotions that bomb after you hold in your routine. Plushenko inTorino LP finish looked like a tone got out of his body and liped thanx god is over, we jump upside down in our homes, what do you expect from a skater whose life is there and he is the one who lives the moment???
Some people need group therapy concerning Plush hate here. It is ridicoulus. I m celebrating my first ignore list.

Please stop with the idiotic pc nonsense - bad sportsmanship - I mean honestly, where do you come up with such nonsense? It's just mind boggling. Do you even know what bad sportsmanship is? And then more nonsense, circulating around the rink ... oh forget it, ignore list.
Well, I've never said I'm a fan of Lysacek and his reactions, because I'm not.
Yes, I know what sportmanship means. Respect your contenders!! That is what does it mean! Please, keep it.
Spontaneous reactions I can accept, being a sportman myself. Pre- decided PR fluffs, I can not accept. As simple as that.

how have plushenko's long programs been this year? does he usually hit all of his jumps? or double a few? i don't think i've ever seen him fall; does he?
