    I still haven't figured out if I like Eman's spin or not. Doesn't Lambiel do this one as well and who was the girl that used to do this? What do you even call this spin?

    Buttle does it too. I'm kind of undecided. It's cool, but kind of ugly.

    I've always loved Eman's spin and I also like Jeff's variation.

    I don't like this spin, I admire that any skater can get into that position...but I just find it kinda ugly.

    Actually, the first person I ever saw do this spin was Julia Sebestyen, a few years ago. She used to have a lot of interesting spin variations she doesn't seem to do anymore. That may have been who you were thinking of, mpal.

    I like it. I'm a spin fan and am always in favor of seeing interesting variations of them. However, I would like to see a picture of it from a different angle; this is about the 4th or 5th picture of Emanuel I have seen in this position, the most notorious one being quite large and full color on the cover of the Vancouver Sun during the 2001 Worlds. Every time one walked by a Sun vending machine, it was like getting mooned every 3 blocks!!:D

    Thanks JohnnyCoop, I was thinking of Julia.

    I have to agree about the mooning part as well, but that was the only picture I could find. Sorry!

    I'll have to go back through the tapes, but how is Jeff's variation different?

    I prefer not to look at ones buttock twirling around in a circle.

    On principal, I'm for skaters trying to come up with new moves/variations. It's not the most elegant of moves, but I'm tired of cookie cutter skating.

    I like what SusanBeth said. I, too, like originality....I enjoy spins, spirals, footwork more than jumps to be honest and anyone who can come up with something different and new is fine by me. I don't see where it's all that unattractive of a position...I mean, look at what positions gymnasts get into...
    So, I voted YES, I like the spin.

    Like so many others, I also like originality. But this move is just plain ugly to me, so I had to vote no...

    I as well like originality but there is a fine line between being original and something being "butt" ugly.

    It's not the most attractive position in the world, but it certainly requires flexibility and great balance. I enjoy seeing people doing different things and being original, so I voted yes.

    Q: "who was the girl that used to do this?"

    A: "Buttle"

    That was classic!
