A lot of us admire Plushenko and don't think he's evil at all -- and you can put me firmly in that camp. I have seen him skate live and he DOES have a commanding presence on the ice. However, PCS is not about just having a presence on the ice. If *some* of you had taken the time to understand what PCS actually mean, you might actually understand when it is said that Plushenko is overscored in some of those categories. This "overscoring" has taken place since 2010 and it's based upon WHO did the program cause I can tell you that if one of the younger skaters did Evengi's programs exactly the same way and got the PCS that he got, many on here would riot. That is NOT to say he likely didn't deserve to win, but not by the margin or with PCS that he was given. Giving credit where credit is due, Plush was ONE of those who called for the quad to be worth more. I seem to recall another skater at that time who thought the quad was undervalued -- goes by the name of Joubert. Name ring a bell? so please, let's not give Plushy credit for EVERY change that has taken place in men's skating. That's just absurd and smacks of entitlement. Oh and I doubt it was because Plushenko wanted the Olymics in his country that it is going to take place there. If he really has that much leverage, he would have had them take place say in ohhhhh 2010 when he was that much younger rather than 2014 when his body is beginning to let him down. That being said, I wish him well and good health between now and the Olympics.
