I'm really flabbergasted to hear this! Such a view doesn't fit the reality of his skating at all, IMO. Even before I was a fan, I never thought of him as ordinary in any way. Let's hope this weekend will open some eyes!
On another note:
I'm hoping for great skates by Dennis Ten and Misha Ge. Go, Kazhakstan and Uzbekhistan! Also Christoper Caluza (go Philippines!) and Alex Kam and Kim Min-Seok (go S. Korea!).

I would love to see Abbott, Chan and Takahashi skate clean and their best and may the best skater win.
Patrick will win for sure, just wait and see.
I don't even need to wait and see,
Museksk8r should watch closely to see if Patrick will come in 11th as wished.
It's not even that I "wish" for him to finish 11th; it's that I like so many of the men and I don't want to see the same one person (Chan) win everything in sight. To me, that is not good for the sport and I hate that kind of predictability. I'm a fan of all 11 of these men to varying degrees.
We have all seen what finishing 5th at the Olympics did to Chan. What monster would a Worlds 11th create?
Kozuka, Verner, Takahashi
It's a frustrating thing that Abbott implodes or semi-implodes at Worlds every time. I enjoy his skating.
