I told you I too can type.
It's unbelievable how somebody can be so slow. And a grande finale:
So, articles where PChan's skills are praised should be looked up. But those where they are not, shouldn't be quoted. Classic!Look up many articles about Chan's skating ability and most of them will remark about how intricate and difficult his programs are... And please don't quote some Russian woman in an article.
Here's a J-news clip where you can see a little of backstage, the moment when an injuried Menshov is coming back from the ice and Dai preparing to skate: http://vk.com/video-2152302_16489233...880946695e159b
And where are your arguments about him not being an excellent skater other than "when he falls he falls noisy" (because when others fall, they don't make noise?!). And to say he's like 100 kg sack on blades is absolutely delusional - you don't even have to be a hardcore fan of his to acknowledge that he has excellent edge work, good speed, and difficult/complex choreography.
Bash him all you want, but whatever, Chan still ends up medalling/winning and it probably drives you crazy because you can't acknowledge the truth that he IS an excellent skater. You've got insults, but Chan's got medals.
And where is your arguments about him being an excellent skater other than "judges give him the highest score, so he is the best!"? And to say that he is not like 100 kg sack on blades is absolutely delusion- you didn't even attend the WTT arena. You don't have to be a hater of him to know that other skaters have excellent skating skills as well, and besides that they don't zamboni the ice and have mountains better musicality and artisty in general.
Worship him all you want, but whatever, Chan will ends up stealing medals from other skaters, being an embarrasment of this sport and it probably drives you crazy because you can't achnowledge the truth that he ISN'T an excellent skater. He's got booed, you've got sour grapes.

Can Skate Canada offer a better trolling? This one is boring. I am disappointed. Yawn.
Moderator's note. This two-way joust has long since ceased to interest other members of the forum. Now you are even boring yourselves. If you must continue, please take it to private message.
(These high maintenance threads just make more work for poor me, what with unapproving posts, fielding complaints, etc. More work for Mathman = bad. One big happy = good. )
I agree with Mathman on this.
I don't want to have to work too hard either cleaning up after a bickering session.
Please take this to PM?
So wonderful to hear that Konstantin is so upbeat. I really hope this doesn't set back his training for next season. He needs to be sparkling on all cylinders so that he can continue to deliver his monumental FU to the RuFed!
Here is a photo Konstantin posted on instagram, visiting the Tokyo Medical University Hospital. (At least this pic doesn't have horrifying x-rays.)
Obviously his phone-hand is still good!

Thanks for the update. Konstantin looks good. Wishing him a speedy recovery.
Patrick Chan is a world champion who can't seem to skate clean programs with more than 4 jumps. I find his performances to be completely uninspiring and not even entertaining. My opinion of his as a skater is that he and his programs are just .... meh ....
I don't really care who wins the medals in FS because the judging is SO chronically suspect and political. I like to watch the skating and the programs. I can't wait for Chan to retire! That way I never have to see him skate, and I won't have to read all the nonsence he pouts out in the media.
I can't wait! 10 months to Sochi and the end of Chan's time in eligible competition.
I hope Chan wins a medal of some color in Sochi, although I'd prefer that it not be gold. I just want him to go AWAY! Every time he wins with a dismal performance, the boards explode. And Chan himself always seems to find a way to stick his foot firmly in his mouth, causing yet another board explosion.
Bye, Paddy, be sure to shut the lights out and close the door when you leave!
And all God's children said, "Amen."
Discussions on Chan's performances and results seem to turn up on every thread. It's boring.
