    This is part 2 of the silly poll (it's the off season!)

    Who do you perceive as the three most beloved skaters on fsu?

    I think Yagudin, Kwan and Shen & Zhao have a lot of fans on this board.

    I had Takahashi on my list, actually. It seems I somehow missed it when I typed in the names. Lambiel was the only one I really forgot.

    Kwan would win a poll of best Men's Singles skater, Ice Dancer and Pairs Skater too.

    Kwan, Ito, and Yagudin. G&G, T&D, and K&P are all quite popular but singles carries more interest and over the top fanaticsm at times on this board it seems.

    I am surprised that A&P don't have any votes. I thought they were very popular here.

    I thought so too, which is why I just now voted for them. :confused:

    And I certainly thought Midori Ito would be neck and neck with Yags for the lead, instead of the Kween, who is "SO boring and SO rich and SO 'Merikun" to a noticeable group of posters. :rolleyes:

    :lol: We should just start a "who rules FSU and the lives and dreams of the skating world" poll, because is seems that the Kween needs to establish herself more on here,just sayin' :p

    As usual, I like several that are mentioned. :lol: I also like some that aren't mentioned like Kristi Yamaguchi.

    Anyway, I chose Gordeeva/Grinkov, Torvill/Dean and the Kween. :)

    Gracie GOLD! Crowned the yet-to-be-confirmed winner of the 2014 Winter Games by FSU.

    Well, at least she was beloved for part of last season until she showed that she is human at Jr Worlds and at the cheesy event in Japan.

    I voted "other" again because I can't believe Witt was left off the poll. People here seem to have an almost irrational love for her, especially given her surprising win of a recent poll.

    I'm still trying to get the idea of this poll and the hate-counterpart.

    Do I have to work myself throught the entire forum and count the benevolent vs. malevolent comments on the listed skaters and then vote for/against them? Or is it all about who I like/dislike most? Ok, I'm obviously taking the trash can much too seriously, I think.

    But I'd like to know on what criteria the skaters on the lists in both threads were chosen...

    It says you've been here since 2009. So in your 3 years of reading fsu posts, which skaters have you noticed get a lot of props or grief. Have you ever noticed that ________ can seem to do no wrong in most posters eyes, or that _________ gets slammed by many no matter what they do or say.

    I am not so sure. I have read plenty of negative comments about Katarina (I was surprised that she won the Survivor game). I did give her some consideration, and plenty of consideration to Kristi Yamaguchi (she is loved here). With just 12 choices I had to leave them out. Lambiel was the only big miss because I did not even think about him, and he may be THE most popular skater here, behind Yagudin. Takahashi was definitely on my list, but I mistyped and mistakenly left him off.

    May be I should create a second round poll of those deserving skaters who were left off.:lol:

    I would say Kurt Browning. I don't think I have ever seen a negative comment about him on FSU, and his name comes up fairly often.

    You are right. Another big miss on my part. I will need to create a part 2, once this one slows down (or dies down).

    I voted for Gordeeva/Grinkov and Michelle Kwan (no-brainers), then Torvill/Dean. I maybe should have voted for Yagudin instead of Torvill and Dean but I think my eyes were drawn to T/D since I like them so much lol.

    I notice this poll is less successful than its Most Hated counterpart. Not as many comments, not as many total votes , seems like there are around 40 FSU members who don't love any of the World/Olympic champions, they just hate some in the other thread.

    Maybe a new poll about who's the most hated of the beloved ones or who's the most beloved of the impopular ones would be a fun variation to the polls that are usually started on this message board the results of which we can easily predict.:lol:

    I quite agree. While I've seen numerous snide comments about ______'s weight, I always liked her cute chubby ______, whereas I feel that some people are so enamoured by _______, that I swear they worship the ground that he ______s on.

    Although she isn't the best. My favorite has always been Carolina, before and after world championships 2012
