Depends if the fans count at all. With fewer fans it is easier for speedy (and people like you) to ignore great artisitc skating and just reward Chan's robotic "skating by numbers" style. Even at Skate Canada the extremely small arena was empty when the "chosen one" came out to show his bland CoP skating style. In France, Chan was soundly booed by the fans and so were the judges. If he really deserved to win then it is obvious skating is no longer a sport people will follow. Not a sport at all but a convoluted pageant totally unaccountable with the cheating rampant.
