    I think Brachiosaurus is a beautiful artistic skater, however, he just isn't athletic enough for OGM. He needs to stay with show skating.

    Maybe not. Because every dino in the poll is based upon a real skater, past or present. See if you can work out who they are. :)

    Totally.... I can't find the link, but I am sure it was hip surgery. Those triple Treceratops are really hard on those young bodies.

    Brachisaurus was a once promising freeskater who got hit by the puberty monster and developed a big butt and thighs. However, with that big body she excels at figures, no one can do figures that are as sharply etched and cover as much ice as she does. If figures count 80% as one poster proposed, no one will be able to catch her no matter how poorly she does in the freeskate.

    If the IJS is in place in go with T-Rex. His attack and determination to win along with his superior jumping ability will un-nerve his competitors. He is already doing quad-quads in practice. Even Chanosaurus and Plushenkosaurus will have a hard time racking up enough points to beat that. Plus he has reputation for being a king.

    Pterodactyls would win because they could fly up and doing twenty revolution jumps.

    Pterodactyls would be merely acrobats above the ice. The judges would never look past their skating skills . . . OR LACK THERE OF.

    Everyone is so jealous of the pterodactyl's skating skills. :drama:

    I heard the velociraptor was seen in Paris with David Pelletier. OR WAS IT HER SISTER???

    Nah - the judges would consider it "flying across the ice" and give them 10's in SS

    And this surprises you? Those Velo-ubers are so crazy and mean, unlike Archaeo-ubers who never utter an unkind word about any other dino...

    The Brachiosaurs are the Trixie Schubas of the dino world. If compulsory figures are still in place in major competitions, they should be able to do enough to win. All they have to do is coordinate their forelegs with their hindlegs. In fact, bipeds like human Trixie Shubas should have nothing against the steadiness of the quadriped Brachiosaurs!

    What about poor Ducky? :drama: "No, no, no!" to winning? She deserved a gold medal for pouting that sweet duck bill at the judges!

    Barney had to sit out, because he could not get public funding for training.

    I thought he lost his eligibility after taking part in an unsanctioned event.
