You can argue that the system sucks for working against such a strong athlete (and I don't deny that he's an incredible athlete - but I prefer Shen/Zhao if we're talking about three-peaters, Yagudin if we're talking about awesome figure skaters, and Takahashi/Lambiel/Chan et al if we're talking current figure skaters). You can't argue that someone who's lost to Emmanuel Sandhu on a technicality (GPF in 2003/4?) doesn't know how to act when the chips don't go his way. It doesn't compute.

    His behaviour isn't becoming an Olympian, let alone one who has scaled the heights of his/her sport.
    I totally disagree.

    Then explain how his behaviour is sporting, fair and justified.

    ITA - but let's face it, only Kati was better at blowing kisses to the judges.

    Now I recommend he studes the CoP rule book and for pete's sake can't some of his fans scrape up a few bucks so Plushy can take a few Tango lessons.

    I heard Argentina is thinking of filing a protest because they say Plushy has mocked their Natl dance

    I don't think people are being hypocritical. The people who bashed Lysacek before are still bashing him (stiff, unmusical, no quad, shaky triple Axel -- although that last one is improved this year-- phony macho posturing.) The people who liked Abbott like him still (but they are a little bit sad and quiet at the moments because he did not skate well.)

    U.S. fans who preferred Johnny Weir to Lysacek still prefer Weir and think he should have placed higher than sixth.

    Evan's many fans, on the other hand, are naturally thrilled for him and should be forgiven a "YE-HAW!" or two.

    As for the U.S. news and entertainment media, it is their job to wave the flag as vigorously as possible and to try to look under every rock for some trace of controversy or for someone to make a villain out of. Hey, it seems to be working. NBC television just reported that it beat "American Idol" in the ratings on Thursday, marking the first time anyone has beat "Idol" at any time slot in six years.

    PS. By the same token, I am not in the least upset over Plushenko's responses. He made a good-humored joke by stepping on the top step of the podium, and he later he reiterated his opinion about the value of the quad in men's figure skating.

    As for believing that he deserved to win, every second-place finisher in the history of sports thinks that.

    Since friday I m wishing Dai had landed the quad and had beaten both. Not because of Evan or Plush and who should win, but because it would have been a much brighter day for all. This one point something in CoP was the cherry, I blame mathematics Really it would be better if Evan ahd won Plush by ten points, it would save much frustration from all sides.
    (i kid..try to at least)

    I know you would like my proposal MM!

    Plush would be sexy in gold dress by the way :o

    Well I dont like sex bomb anymore but at least he would wear something gold.
    Maybe he should use the one GPF michael jackson costume where he was wrapped all gold from head to toe and looked like a christmas ball?

    I noticed that too. It happens in many sports. There are bandwagon fans once someone wins a championship.

    As long as it isn't "Baby Sex Bomb' he can do anything he wants

    I just read Plushy has been named by Russia as an ambassador for the 2014 games.
    A good choice as he is one of the best known Russian athletes and I am sure he will represent his country well.

    Good luck at Worlds to Plushy.
