That's the story of my life for trying to make Figure Skating a more mature sport, and yes, I failed. As I see it, the topic should have been in The Voting Booth, and I never would have seen it, where everyone can vote their favorite legends without stipulating why they were chosen. Your post considers it a popularity contest. No?

BTW. What do you think of the chances for your listing to make it into the Halls of Fame? (it's not instant, and maybe not decided in our life time. quien sabe?)
