Who do you dislike more- Tom Z or Morozov. (Or is there another coach out there more worthy of contempt?)

Mishin? :confused: Well, I respect him, but I'm always under the impression he's not well liked here.

Who's Tom Z.?

Tom Zakrajsek, Flatt's coach.

I don't think I can say I dislike anyone ! After all, I don't know personnally any of those coaches. And I respect all of them for their abilities.
But really, I don't share the vision of this sport of Mishin and Morozov. ;)

Tom Zakrajsek, Flatt's coach.Thanks for the information! :respec:

Flatt's coach? While I agree she's not exactly the most pleasant thing on ice to watch, I don't get the despise. Must be US internal, I guess.

Damn, I thought it was Brian Orser! Ooops...that's only in certain threads -- pardon me!

The most disliked coach here probably is indeed Morozov.
Shpilband/Zueva aren't also that loved.

I get the impression from some that Mishin's name is practically a filthy word...

Must be a bunch of people jealous at the amazing skaters he's trained! :lol:

Or perhaps we don't find those skaters all that amazing. My issue with Mishin is every single one of his skaters has horrible choreography and costumes. I'll agree he's a great coach when it comes to jumps.

There are so words to describe what I think of Tom Z. right now.

I don't think Tom Z. is so bad. Joanne McLeod is also widely disliked.

Robin Wagner hasn't gotten much love here either.

I'm not sure I get the point of this thread. Why are these coaches worthy of contempt? The only reason you even know their names is because they have had many successful skaters. Very few coaches have a skater go to Nationals, let alone more than one.

No matter the situation, the 'you're just jealous' argument requires no thought whatsoever and is an easy way out of actually thinking up logical reasons. It also never holds any water. I hate, hate, hate this stupid, cliche line.

I don't think his style fits in with the the new system that was obvious with Plushenko. I don't know what he was like personally but I always thought he looked like a little mean man!! lol

Tom Z. Morozov's creepy but his students are really talented jumpers and for the most part quite consistent. Got to give him credit where credit is due. Tom Z on the other hand, produces a lot of slow, generic skaters, a lot of whom are inconsistent. Agnes needs to leave Tom Z ASAP, she has so much potential but I fear it won't amount to anything if she stays with him.
