    Brian and Yuna's camp should have just released a joint statement. They're both at fault and could have handled the situation better. Yuna's agency could take a cue from the way Michelle dealt with things in a civil manner. But the fanatics will never learn that they're the ones to have exacerbated the matter to complete and utter nonsense.

    Tonya and Nancy's fault. Go figure. Sorry I don't have a link but this is from a very reliable source who said that they are both secretly working undercover to undermine the judges results at Socchi.

    OMG, I can't believe I am reading this. How stupid are you? Which source says that the media are mad at Michelle for not talking more about her coach splitup, so they're going after YuNa/Orser instead? The "Voices In My Head" Weekly? The Tinfoil Conspiracy Hat Monthly?

    This is from outer space. On second thought, I'm not even sure there's a place in outer space where this would make sense.

    Looking at the level of hysteria among her haters, I can guess ticket sales to Yuna's LA show is going very well. It's really a positive sign. :respec:

    C'mon haters crawl out in full force! The more the merrier.

    If this pace keeps up, she will take her show to 12 major cities in North America and make a debut stage in Europe by next year.

    With a little more help from haters, who knows? She might decide to go to Sochi and win consecutive OGM. :)

    Why is Kwan a choice? I figured it'd be Mao Asada. :shuffle:

    Anyway, I don't think any one party is to blame. It was a huge miscommunication and I think both sides misinterpreted things over time, which allowed the situation to nearly get out of hand.

    I remember the vote counts were 23 for Kim, 4 for Orser, 17 for both 24 hours ago. This poll is becoming meaningless.

    Thanks, that's the first time I've seen that skate from lots of different angles that weren't available in the ABC broadcast. The Eurosport version makes that performance look even better - so free and smooth and flowing.

    Sigh...good times.

    ETA: I bet the Kimbots must now be frothing more than ever since Kim is winning this poll! LOL!

    However...

    in anycase, it's the skaters that i love and care for...

    Life is just too short to spend my time on the coaches on top of that.

    So long...

    How could that be, considering its rigorously scientific controls and Gallup-poll approved methodology?

    All the haters disappear suddenly in one day.

    I guess haters take break from hating in Sundays?
    Or are they too busy doing their house choirs? ;)

    Only because it's old news already. There is so much more to figure skating than Yuna. :watch:

    It's Sunday and they're repenting for the last week's sins. Like all good sinners, they'll be back for blaspheming tomorrow. ;):p
