I love this girl, the way she skates and the elegance she brings to the sport of figure skating.
She is a champion in my eyes and sometimes I wish there were more like her.
I will miss here alot when she retires from competitive skating.
Czisny is what she is; it's up to the fan to interpret and decide how to feel about her. That's it, really.
She has a lot of fans at GS and elsewhere. Maybe for some of them, a world championship or medal will help validate their fandom. It happens and nothing wrong with that.

It's not for her fans, its for her that we all want her to win a medal.
That way, she could be classy, lovely, and sign a million dollar contract to sell Chrysler cars as the winner and new champeen!.
MM- You speak for yourself, and likely many other forum members, but not for everyone.
Personally, I think it would be great if Czisny lucked out enough to grab a medal. Would end a 5-yr drought for US ladies. But I know (and I think others do as well) that such a scenario, while not impossible, is extremely unlikely, especially given her inconsistency- and the return of Yuna Kim and the Japanese ladies.
I have already submitted this script to Chrysler for their new ad program.
“I am Alissa Czisny, world figure skating champion and symbol of the New Detroit. Just like Detroit I used to be mean and ugly, with high crime and bad schools…
"Oh wait, I was never any of those things."
What a season Alissa had winning Skate Canada, the GPF and the US Ladies championship.
What determination she showed changing coaches and coming back for another season after the disappointment of 2010.
She has nothing to prove to me and I wish her the best of luck at Worlds.
I do hope she will return next season but that is her choice.
She makes me fall in love with her skating and as a human being more and more everyday. She represents everything that I see the area I grew up in, Southeast Michigan, and makes me so proud. She has always been my favorite figure skating since winning bronze in 2007. With that sad, I hope simply hope she gives it everything she has, and skates a program that she is proud of. I'd cry if she medals, and I'd say I wouldn't be that surprised if she skates clean and gets a medal. We want it for her. =]
I hope every skater has fans as devoted to Alissa as we are. When she skates, as pista04 says, we fall in love with her skating. Every skater should experience the emotional link Alissa has with her fans.
My great wish for her is that she skates her very best, with those wonderful spirals and spins and with solid jumps, and let the chips fall where they may. It would be great if she medaled, of course, but I'll be happy to see her however it turns out.
At the beginning of the season, I said she would medal at Worlds.
I see no reason to change my mind now.
One thing I like about Czisny is she seems to be one of the few skaters that genuinely appreciates her fans.
