I still think Joubert should have won the 2004 Worlds but everyone is different.
I would have had Plushenko with the Olympic gold in 2010 but none of my mates agreed wih me.
Also in 2002 in Salt Lake City I thought the American should have won silver instead of Plushenko.
At the 2008 Worlds I would have had Joubert with the gold.
That's what's great about Figure Skating-everyone has a different view.
Plushenko V Chan at their best would be good to see.
But there is only one male skater who has my heart............................................. ....Prince Yagudin !!!!

Maybe we should look at this from a different angle.
If Patrick is favored by the judges, then WHY is he favored?
What did he do that others did not to gain this favor?

Fairly.. I think the ending placements will be fair and the best skater will win. But I am not so sure about the margin of the win.

Chan will never be worthy to tie Kwan's skate laces. No matter how many titles he "wins" (which are not really wins but victories all reserved for him the moment his name is put on the entry list anyway) he will never be as beloved, as passionate, as moving, as classy, as complete, as inspirational, and as all around wonderous as she is.

I think it will be judged fairly according to the current rules.

However, I'm still hoping for ABC.

(anybody but Chan)

It doesn't matter who wins, someone somewhere will think it wasn't judged fairly. ;)

If your favorites win, it's fair.

If your favorites don't win, wuzrobbed!

:)

I voted for Kwan. But I think the above response is the correct one.

But I think the above response is the correct one.I find it actually more often used as a way to dismiss an opinion one disagrees with.

In 88 I was desperate for debi to win. Yet I don't for a second consider her "wuz robbed". But I do think Calgary had some very questionable "reputation judging".

So it's entirely possibly to think judging was questionable without feelings about your favorite's placement factoring in.

But that's not how online skating discussions usually work. If you consider Chen "wuz robbed" in 96, it's not long before you're labeled a "Kwan hater" or a "Chen über" or whatever label is handy to try and discredit your opinion without the hassle of thought or reason. :D
