Bourne and Kraatz this time for me.

Not a bad team, but bland and staled for so many years. They basically waited until every single rival had retired or got their dues to finally get a "retiring gift" World title.

I think that FP&M were most definitely a memorable and voidy team! :kickass:

I also voted for Bourne & Kraatz. Now that we see North American ice dancers who are, you know, good, it really underscores how overrated they were. :saint:

I dont think they are the weakest team left but since their crazy fanbase scares me I voted for Bourne & Kraatz. Definitely dont deserve to survive to near the end, and with their crazy fanbase they might well do that if given the opportunity. I also agree with how they won their World title, although they did deserve it that year, L/A's free dance was garbage and didnt even deserve a medal that year, and the rest werent ready.

I am not voting off Bourne & Kraatz this time for I really liked their Riverdance.

I am voting off Navka & Kostomorov not that I dislike them but I know they'll survive this time and I have no desire to vote off Bourne & Kraatz. Not a favourite of mine but wheeeee go Riverdance.

Domshabs have to go. They were talented, but his injury really held them back.
They really didn't deserve 2009 Worlds.

Lobacheva/Averbukh. Like being beaten to death by mannequins.

Domnins has to go.. I don't care if he was injured; they should not have been PCS'd into an Olympic medal and works title with crap!! B/K had so much potential but seemed to stall and not take it to the next level, despite all their world medals.. I blame Dubova for that..

I voted for the Dom/Shabs...never liked their skating and IMHO they were held up big time at both 09 Worlds and the OLY..

Not a big fan of L/A, but they will be voted off soon enough, I hope..

I voted for B&K too. I was never impressed by their skating, although in their first appearance in 92 I thought they had a lot of potential. Their constant whining after losing really got to me.

C'mon? How can someone vote for Domnina & Shabalin at this stage? I know that it has a lot to do with personal preferences and perceptions but I think D&S did skate some terrific performances throughout their career..

Euros 08 Ex: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yEEXI3QBI9o&feature=related (even the french commentators surrendered to their talent).

+ their OD tango from 07.

I also think that they got a lot of negative publicity during 2010 because of the aboriginal dance that afterall, in my opinion, wasn't offensive at all...

It's also beyond me how can someone vote for Virtue&Moir at the moment considering that L&A and B&K are still there.

If not for Shabalin's injury, DomShabs would have become a really great ice dance team. Their CD at the 2010 Olympics is one of my favorite performances (I did like CDs a lot!). Unfortunately for OD and FD they needed a lot more difficult moves, which they could not do because of the physical limitations. At some point I will vote to take them out, but this is way too early.

I agree way way too early for them.

I'm trying to get out Bourne and Kraatz now. No idea who I'll vote for next since I actually liked Lobacheva and Averbukh's weird 2002 FD.
