[QUOTE=BlackPack;742219I don't understand how other skaters, who say they are aiming for the Olympic Gold, are bashed incessantly, while Aaron is praised. He clearly is overrated in this thread.[/QUOTE]
I wasn't praising him for saying he was aiming for the Olympic Gold, I was more commenting on his 5 quads through 2 programs comment and completely blew off that piece of it as the typical comment you'd see in an interview - what do you want him to say? He'd be happy to be there?
I was also stating that his skating is better than Goebel's from a power (and PCS-rewardable) perspective as by some counts Goebel was the worst *skater* of the last group.
Max Aaron has a sense of style for his skating, it's just a lot more Elvis Sotjko-ish than John Curry. LOL!
Fingers crossed...Carmen has been over-done imo, but a fresh, new take could work. It's a long opera, so a lot of the music never gets used, so I'm hoping for magic!
I know that Max will give it everything he has; he is an exciting young skater with a lot of energy and drive. I'm going to just take a wait-and-see approach, not pre-judge, and see what Max and Lori create. They might surprise us...in a good way!
