I love how many converts (Chanverts?) have been made at TEB on this board. Come on, sky_fly/karne/pangtongfan, there's still time for you to be saved!
Chan did it at TEB, with one of the most beloved pieces of classical baroque music. One thing about baroque music it just doesn't tolerate "overacting". That's why they are a minority in figure skating as its subtleness demands tremendous quality and execution from their programs to be able to get to audience. But done well, they touch on the very inner core of one's being, just as the music is meant to be.
And I have always loved Dai. Who can forget his 2012 world's LP?
You're not *supposed* to be anything, but rudeness/venomous attitude towards a flawless performance (regardless of the skater) is pretty uncalled for. Not to mention, a flawed performance from not one of your own beloved skaters also receives the same ridicule. How do you feel if people labelled Yuzuru a headcase for continually singling jumps this season and missing both quads at TEB? The skaters you dislike are damned if they do, damned if they don't. You're just a very bitter person that loves to find fault with the world, aren't you.
Flawless performances from Chan surely seperate the haters from the critics.
