    I was planning to keep out of this discussion but I just can't help myself. What would one expect from Elvis but to stick up for Plushy. Elvis, himself, had no grace or musicality in his skating. He was a skate, jump.......skate, jump performer.

    I have never been a big fan of Evan's skating but I am thrilled that he beat Plushy. As I expected all along, Plushy has turned out to be a "horses' patoot". That guy is the worst sportsman I can remember. He's so into himself----self righteous, pompous, arrogant and the biggest jerk I have seen in skating. He jumps like a jackhammer, has no grace, musicality. And......Evan is giving him toooo much credit calling him a "nice guy".

    Message to Plushenko-------you are a disgrace to your country and humanity as a whole. Go get a life you big loser!!

    He would have no grounds on which to bash Johnny's skating. Chan landed ONE clean 3A of 3 attempted. Johnny landed 3 beautiful, clean 3As.

    And there was NO NEED to mention Johnny in the KnC. Why does he think he has the right to say what skaters should or should not do in the KnC? It's because CHan does things like that, that he winds up putting his foot squarely in his mouth.

    If all the other skaters talked as negatively about Chan as he does of them, he'd be in a snit. As it is, the other skaters pay no attention to him because they don't value his opinion. To them, he's just an annoying child.

    It's not like Chan has good manner in KnC. I remember he cursed something like 'fxxxk...' during a Junior Worlds competition. I swear I saw this on youtube. Can somebody dig out the clips? Pls.

    They all told you this personally? You've got some serious connections.

    Thumbs down

    Chan is just an extremely boring, overrated, over-scored spoilt little brat, who obviously became "fat" from all the candies the judges gave him. However, his remarks are certainly more "interesting" than his meh skating/programmes. If he's the "future" of Men's skating, I'll quit watching it.

    Wow, you could see Chan's amazing potential even then. Thank you for posting it!

    Really, I had no idea a cute, little asian boy was capable of being so evil. I honestly don't have any problems with the kid, just seems like a normal teenager to me.

    I will never enjoy his skating because I detest him. Funny how that works.
    But also, that weird, big-eyed look he gets before he skates is a turn-off. O.o
    Guy needs to lighten up.

    Easier said than done for an elite athlete. Being high strung is part of the job. You have to be careful about everything: what you eat, how you practice, what you do in your free time, etc. It's hard to even have fun ever because you are constantly afraid of injuring yourself. Chan likely doesn't have a social life and that's probably why it appears he's lacking in social and communication skills in these interviews. He can't act like an idiot around his friends because he never gets to see them so he acts like an idiot to reporters. That's my theory .

    Not funny, no, rather sad in fact.

    Lots of other skaters are his age and even younger: Florent Amodio, Denis Ten, Kevin Reynolds, Adam Rippon, Michal Brezina, etc. You don't get any sound bytes from them dissing other skaters. Rippon is a two-time World Junior Champion, JGPF Champion and 4CC Champion, and he's always upbeat and engaging. He trains just as hard as Chan does, but he hasn't let his successes go to his head the way Chan has.

    Chan's world silver is a bigger accomplishment than that of those other guys. I didn't say he wasn't cocky, I just think it's a little extreme to consider him a bad person or brat because of a few things he's said on tv.

    Lots of men have won a world medal without becoming loud-mouthed critics of other skaters.

    I don't know what kind of a person Chan is, so I don't consider HIM "bad". It's his behavior that is off-putting. And it seems as if the more controversial his statements are, the more he goes out of his way to continue that bad behavior.

    For once, I totally agree with Stojko. Somebody has to address this issue.
