I don't understand - are you rolling your eyes at people choosing other skaters over Yagudin? I personally know of his career in ice shows. I also have seen some of Yagudin's skating in those shows. Suffice it to say that I didn't like it so much that it would make me think of him as of the best professional skater. Yagudin's acting was okay, although not great, costumes were interesting if debatable, the choreography was nothing special in my opinion, and his skating also was merely okay (imho) just because there was not that much to skate. Here you have one of my (several) reasons for not choosing Yagudin.
