I understand that this forum is about Max and Tati, but all of us should respect other skaters (Maria, Aliona etc.) as well. We don't know them personally and most 'accusations' are just based on assumptions. It is understandable that some fans would like to defend their favorite skaters but it should not be done by making comments that degrades other skaters. Every person has their own personalities and so do we. Who are we to judge others so harshly when all of us have flaws? It is unfair to judge others based on their appearances for we do not know what they have been through and their own private lives.
I'm sorry if I offend somebody with this post, but just know that I do it out of love; and as an older person (in age), it is an important lesson to learn in life to respect others even with our words.
Thank you, SallyTeoh, for adding another voice of reason here. I would also like to think our time and lives are too precious to waste on all of this constant negative energy and discussion. It would be a lot more pleasant to pop in here if everyone took a moment to think about whether their post adds something positive to the day and discussion. What I love about Tanya especially is she always finds something to smile about in life and I'd like to think we can pick up on even a little of that.
For the last time, let's please keep this thread positive.
At 4:18 Max showing the lady referee his hand and the lady touching it like she could feel something I totally understand her though. The costumes were a no no, but for some unexplained reason I find Max very handsome in it.
If anyone is interested here's a video from their last show in Russia, it shows a tiny part of their performance and some part of the press conference where Tanya wore glasses. And shockingly she was able to speak lol.
Nah.... after a second look.... its just to check Max's arms then.... But annafer, your comment is still funny.... she could feel something?
max's instincs were right. What I love about him is that he truly cares about the health/saftey of his partners. He almost never puts them at risk.
and his expressions in the K&c... i can't even.
I wonder if the admiration Maxim had for Tanya in the past was only about her skating skills or if he actually found her good looking back then as well.
I bet he did. There weren't many nice, good looking, young female skaters in the russian team at that time.. There are a few pics of them together from 2008-09. It seems like he always liked being in her company, I mean, who wouldn't? she's one of the brightest, most optimistic people I've ever seen.Originally Posted by Arawen;
I find this quote so cute, funny and touching. And this is by far my favorite picture of them.
EDIT: They had a KISS CAM during the WC in Japan. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kG_BKWyPn1A Shame they didn't spot V/T in the crowd... it would have been hilarious. and adorable.
Can't believe what happened with Max's sleeve in that performance (did he not realize beforehand that it was too tight and more than those muscles could handle? ha ha), but see.....that's just another reason to stay away from the silly costumes. I do agree Annafer -- he looked really good there -- but for me it was the good hair day and just the fact that he was in black
An interview in Russian where they talk about how different they are in their tastes, yet how they compliment each other, also about the past and future of figure skating and of the quality of their skating. About how giving one's medal to the more deserving opponent will not make any difference at all because the records cannot be changed anyway, about the very smart way they took to make their programs medal worthy, in terms of smart choreography, calculated difficulty of elements, etc. In fact they turned it into a science.
I saw somewhere a documentary about that-that a whole team of various professionals was brought in to consult on costumes, sound, expressions etc for maximum effect before their first world championship. I guess they did not feel they had time for trials and errors, so they took the science and math approach to everything.
