Getting low now. I can foresee the two D & S going next and then V&M. I really hope A&P and K&O go earlier.

This time I'll vote for Anissina & Peizerat.

So now N-K or V-M will go?
I think all understand G-P will win. So uninteresting voting.

I've voted for N/K this time as I love Denstas they were so much more interesting and creative ' and should have won the gold in 2004.

I personally think N/K have shown much more of their ability after the retirement from competitive skating which I wouldn't say on the rest of teams remaining.

:lol:

It's time for Denkova & Staviski to go. I love them but in my opinion he was a much better skater than her.

Denkova is by far the weakest skater out of all those left so they really should be gone. And that's even before we get to the fact that they have no olympic medals.

With 42 votes, N/K have received 42.42% of those cast so far. I think that's a sign.

I don't think that Albena is by far the weakest skater left. After all, there's still Roman.
But I definitely think that Albena and Maxim should be gone because of their lack of an Olympic medal and the fact that I found them boring for all their pre Linichuk career.
I do not think that they should have won gold in 2004. No way that their boring OD and unoriginal FD should have beated Navka and Kostomarov's amazing OD and voidy original Pink Panther.

Denkova & Stayviski time to go IMO. If DenSta somehow outlast Virtue & Moir in this game that will be worth a huge laugh.

I personally think that Virtue and Moir should win this whole thing, but it seems like they'll be out before Anissina and Peizerat as well as Krylova and Ovsiannikov

Navka and Staviski could have been a nice partnership with matching talents. If only he was a bit taller...
I really like this show number of them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTVEAepEDWQ

I like all the couples here but I agree with judgejudy27, I don't think it would be fair to let D&S stay sacrificing V&M.
Meanwhile I guess I have to start another "Save Navka" campaign if the poll turns out to be a duel between N&K and D&S loool

Navka and Kostomarov, again. Yet again, zzz. I <3 Denkova and Staviyski, but I hope they don't outlast Virtue and Moir. That's like Plushenko already getting voted out over on the men's side.

Take everything I said about DelSchoes, and apply it to DenSta.

They were underrated early in their career, they should have gotten the bronze at 2002 worlds, they had the most difficult OD and FD in 2003 and easily could have won, they could have won 2004, they got totally screwed at the Olympics in 2006 becuase apparently missing a position in a dance spin in the OD is worse than skating like Ruslan Goncharov for three phases. :rolleyes:

V&M obviously have better body types for dance and are a better match physically for CoP elements, but they could only dream of getting the push to the blade and deepness of edges that D&S could. Like DelSchoes, if marked properly, they would have a more impressive record.

Honestly I would consider removing A&P before DenSta.:shuffle:
