    Okay, now for the Olympic Champion SURVIVOR!

    The rules are: vote for the weakest link. For the first TWO rounds, we'll eliminate the bottom two. After that, one at a time. Other than that, there are no rules.

    V&M with more votes than Linichuk.... ooooook. :rofl: :rofl:

    I hope Pahkmova & Gorshkov stay another round. Their only FD I've seen is Masquerade Waltz, but it's so brilliant.

    Linichuk & Karpanasov are by far the weakest. The only reason they probably wont be voted out yet is nobody even remembers them.

    Torvill & Dean should win this. The only ones that even come close and I wouldn't mind winning are Klimova & Ponomarenko. I like Grishuk & Platov but those two teams are just too special.

    And I'm hoping the French team go early as I don't admire them. Oh and poor Virtue & Moir. They don't stand a chance no matter how good they actually are.

    ^^^This.

    Well, no, not in my case at least. Virtue & Moir get my vote because they bore me to tears. :yawn: At least Linichuk and Karpanosov made me LMAO.

    Navka/Kostomarov. No long rationale, since I'm tired of explaining how boring I find them.

    Virtue/Moir second-last at this stage?! SERIOUSLY? Did Scott Moir's WTT comments offend people THAT much?

    Nope, didn't bother to even vote. T&D should win this hands down, the rest don't even come close, imo. Well, perhaps K/P but even they are a distant second.

    I had to go watch the Linichuk/Karponosov FD from 1980 out of curiosity. All I can say is zzzz, and the posters who said Regoeczy and Sallay should have won were right!

    Watch Moiseeva & Minenkov's FD though, from the same event - that should have beaten them both, at least in that portion. Also, I would recommend watching any CDs or OSPs before you make the judgment on 1980 Olympics, because I felt that L&K's were way better than their competition's.

    I don't think it matters what Moir says or doesn't say, I think some people just don't like their skating style and find it boring. He doesn't make himself especially likeable by saying stupid "spoiled child" statements, but that's something else, to be discussed on another thread, maybe.

    L&K had excellent CD's, but I don't think I've ever seen the OSP's from the 1980 Olympics. Going to look on youtube:.....

    I was only able to find L&K's OSP Foxtrot. They are still the stiffest dancers I've ever seen, although the dance has some very interesting moments.

    The commentary appears to be Canadian-I wonder whether other team's OSP's were broadcast? Does anyone remember.
