Some people should really get out of their rock. What you see on several videos is a normal attitude that people demonstrate here to each other at any working place, like an office, a shop or a kindergarten. But nobody call it friendship. In your world maybe people do not act friendly and generously to each other on a regular basis (like Chan who unlike two Japanese didn't mention any of his current rivals as "his favourite skater"). But cultures differ. In some places it's a norm to keep the harmony. Yet, it doesn't mean you will be invited to the person's house as a friend.

Originally I was not a figure skating fan, until I saw Daisuke's performance at the Olympics. It blew me away, and the rest is history. I rooted for Patrick at first because he was the poster child for figure skating in Canada haha.

I like them both and can appreciate the skating skills of both of them; however, as much as I like Dai's skating, I am in awe of Patrick....I enjoy the comraderie between these two competitors.

I just love how the poeple were screaming after Dai said he wanted to try 2 quads in his FS next season!

If I remember correctly, he said somewhere else that he'd try the 4F again, if his 4T is getting good enough. I want to see that!

Yes, he did: " After my surgery before this season, I went to France and was taking ballet lessons, working a lot on my basic skating skills. This made me improve my spins and triple jumps, so that I could focus more on training the quad instead of losing time training the other triples. The flip is actually my second quad, I focused on the toe this season. I feel more confident about the toe, so next season I will practice the flip and maybe other quads, too." (translation by japanskates). Those words "other quads" made some J-media to speculate what quads could it be. But my guess he would stick with 4F. I like how he performes this jump. Also, it could be just two 4toes, one in combo, as so many skaters did. Will see.
