I don't dislike them, but I don't think they are one of the all-time greats, either. While Roman is good, she is a better skater, and I like to see more balance. I think their results have often been correct, but I believethe 2004 World title should have gone to D&S. I think both D&S teams are more skilled, so it frustrates me to see them behind N&K. N&K are medal worthy teams, but I don't think the medal should always be gold.
I'm also frustrated with the quality of ice dance programs over the last two years. I think the new system is taking a lot of the creativity and spark out of ice dancing. Maybe N&K are just feeling the brunt of people's views about ice dancing in general.
