No surprises as Pang & Tong get sent off to the aftershow buffet, but who will be next?

Kazakova & Dmitriev (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gIBchcmnpk): Olys 1998
Berezhnaya & Sikharulidze (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0z5fWd7Fu5o): Worlds 1998, 1999, Olys 2002
Shen & Zhao (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qqHEd0Bq9o): Worlds 2002, 2003, 2007, Olys 2010
Totmianina & Marinin (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHxr-zsNEPg&feature=player_detailpage#t=27s): Worlds 2004, 2005, Olys 2006
Savchenko & Szolkowy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqkCUEZBO8s&feature=player_detailpage#t=29s): Worlds 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012

I think Savchenko & Szolkowy should go at this point but since almost nobody will vote for them until atleast next round I voted for Kazahkova & Dmitriev. Liked them but they were never as great as M&D and their amateur careers were too short with not enough major sucess compartively speaking.

I feel like Shen & Zhao were the weakest skaters, but it's hard to vote them out after they came back and won the OGM.

I want kazakova and dnitriev to go
Then Shen and zhao then totmianina and marinin the savchenko and szolkowy. With berezhnaya and sikharulidze winning

I voted off Totmianina and Marinin, for me the most borring pair ever to win the olympic gold medal

I can't believe some people are thinking of voting S&Z off in this round or the next round, that's bordering on ridiculous.

T/M were the best skating robots ever.

I voted off K/D again - rationale was explained in the last round.

Kazakova was a weak skater in comparison of all the other ladies in the list. I still have the image of her falling out from the spiral in Nagano. She wrapped her triple jumps and her position in the air on the throws was not the best (as Mr Button would say)
Their lp in Nagano was a great choreographic piece with wonderful drama and emotion, but most of the moves they did were a remake of the same moves he did with Mishkutenok, and Natalia did them with much more flair and panache

K&D is easily the least memorable pair.
