    Jason Brown definitely has "it". He's probably my favorite male skater since Paul Wylie's exquisite (if uneven) amateur career. Who cares about quads when you can get performances like his 2014 nats LP?

    You're missing the point, many medalists (including gold - Hughes for example) aren't long term stars, but figure skating needs to make it easier for stars (like Brown, Lipniskaja etc) to connect to audiences not harder. Purism will kill the discipline faster than the Speedy's daft ideas.

    I didn't know that skating community is this small.

    It will keep becoming smaller if the leadership isn't improved. Up to 20,000 now!
