I don't think it's right to demonstrate against a particular skater. Demonstrate against the JUDGES, because they're the ones who are doing the overscoring.

I loved the 'mushroom' protest at CoR!

ITA! It would also make the point better than anti-Chan posters -- which would only look idiotic if he skated absolutely cleanly.

I think boycott maybe a little overboard, same as targeting a skater. But they are only showing what they feel about the sport. I get many peoples feel confused and fedup with THE INCONSISTENCY IN JUDGING. If a skater stumble on a jump, and the judges are giving GOE range from zero to +GOE, it screaming something about the system. If there are no fans, there will be no sport.

Best thing is if the score show up like that again, just BOOOOO and get out of the arena. If more than half of the peoples get up and leave, I am sure FSU will notice.

Miki never WON any events with splats

Oh, yes (http://www.isuresults.com/events/cat00006737.htm) she did (http://www.isuresults.com/results/gpjpn09/gpjpn09_Ladies_SP_Scores.pdf)! ;)

Have no idea how to translate the Russian proverb (khuda bez dobra ne byvaet), which means something like that: any bad act results in at least one good consequence. Maybe the act of Chinese will make ISU do something about the system in general. I would prefer that this stuff would happen in a more civil manner though. But if this option is not available, somehow I understand those fans' feelings. ISU has been over the line with the judging system for long enough. Chan is just the worst result of the corrupted system that does require some healthy modifications.

Or maybe the ISU should stop people from putting up insulting banners before thing get out of hand..

Banners dissing a skater would not be any fun.

The best protest banner I have ever seen was a huge "Silence is Gold" to a certain Japanese announcer in 2007 Worlds. That was just :rofl:
It was taken down before the real competition (which was good) and he kept talking nonsense, nonstop anyway (which was unfortunate).

Someone managed to do it without getting in any trouble right before Vancouver :shuffle:

surely you mean before the pairs and dance competion at Salt Lake City

OMG, Patrick is the new Yag vs Plush, Tara vs Michelle, YuNa vs Mao...but alone !
He has more threads than anyone else.
He is a genius, I tell you ;)

Ando hasnt been winning events with PCS but with TES. And that she is doing so with only 5 triples is telling to the sad state of the ladies field this season thus far.

I know, but her PCS scores have been mega inflated, in my opinion.

Will there be counter-protests by the Chanadians? The Chan Clan?

I think this coud be nice way to tell judges that fans, skaters, coach etxc aren't stupid.

I think it is great that the Chinese are able to protest...even if I do not agree. Maybe this is what FS needs, a new controversy. :cool:

I miss FSU snarky-ness in this thread!

IMO, there is no better way to express feelings towards chanflation than subtle sarcasm.
I'd support this banner.

By the way, the 'mushroom' banner mentioned above was created by Johnny's fans from his Russian web-site ;)

I wouldn't support it for any skater to have such a thing displayed at an event. Very poor taste.

No I mean before the men competition at Vancouver.

Hmmm...interesting. Never knew a minority of Chinese fans felt so strongly about this. Chan's pcs is ridiculous, but the banner would be carrying things a bit far.

By the way, is this disdain by the Chinese fans mere frustration being polarized? Or is it somewhat fueled by negative American Born Chinese sentiment or in Chan's case, CBC? Or is it completely unrelated? I'm only asking because I've recently learned of this terminology/mindset from a friend.

:lol: at some Chinese fans thinking other skaters are overscored. Have they been not watching pairs the last ten years?

Sheesh, tell me. Chan at least deserves better PCS scores than most, certain Chinese pairs...not so much.
