Right.So, basically you are saying he shouldn't go to the radio show in the first place.
I am not angry or pleased either way. It's not just about Chan, whose competition results would be least affected by his comments one way or another. Chan earns his marks by rules judges have to go by and he is far ahead enough to have a margin for purposeful lowballing. It is simply not appropriate nor professionally ethical or courteous for Lakernik to say what he says about the judges and the skaters at this particular time. He was talking like a skating fan while being in a position of power and influence. At the very least, he should avoid appearing to be biased, or lobbying or politicking.Would you be also angry if he came and said how good Chan is and blah-blah? I am sure you wouldn't. But praising Chan is inappropriate, unprofessional and unethitcal too, because it would be the same politicking. Still you wouldn't have any problems with that.
