    Silver and bronze medalists for men (behind Chan) at Worlds this year

    Since the judges have quite obviously awarded Chan the World title in 2011 (along with the World titles in 2012, 2013, and Olympic Gold in 2014) irregardless of his performance or whether he has 1, 3, 5, or 20 falls who do you believe will be the silver and bronze medalists at Worlds this year. I am suspecting it will be some combination of Joubert, Takahashi, Oda, Brezina, or an American. It is multiple choice so pick 2.

    My job requires me to be a juggler, but that does not mean that I enjoy working with clowns.

    I think Chan will (and should) win all three medals.

    I chose Takahashi and Brezina to win the silver and bronze. Takahashi will be from 10-20 points back of Chan (depending how many falls Chan has and whether Takahashi skates clean). Brezina from 18-25 points back.

    this is one of the funniest posts, I luv it

    I think chan will win worlds by 100 points .... But if he only falls 2 times then he wins by 200 .. he won't go clean so we don't need to worry about what that score would be

    I really hope that the Gold isn't being set aside for Chan.

    I hope my past powers of having threads like this blow up in my face continues. I very much hope that pattern continues in this case in fact.

    Patrick Chan always bombs badly in Asia. I don't think he wins but let's wait and see GPF in Beijing.

    2006 NHK 5 deductions
    2008 GPF 4 deductions
    2009 WTT 3 deductions

    Bombing is irrelevant when it comes to Chan. The judges have made that perfectly clear this season. 3-5 deductions past performances in Asia? Big deal, it will take alot more than 3-5 FALLS for him to lose the title this year.

    World is more serious competition than money making events like GP. Making two or major errors is fatal, especially in away. That' why I say he can't win. Someone in the "top" ranks skates clean and takes the title.

    He can!!

    Gold from victory ceremony.
    Silver from LP small medal ceremony.
    Bronze from SP small medal ceremony.

    But, I hope he can clean both programs and win 3 gold medals. Or share some of them to Dai, Rippon, Abott or Joubert.

    No Chan on the podium, please. He's so boring.

    I want Daisuke and Tomas on it FOR SURE. These guys are just

    I love Brian, but his LP this year is disastrous. Unless he changes it, I vote for... ehm, Abbott

    If Chan falls 4 times I'd really love to see a podium of Takahashi, Verner, and Abbott. They all seem to be overcoming their former demons nicely so far.

    Chan right off the podium with 4 falls, LOL! Keep dreaming. He would have won today over one of the top skaters with 2 clean programs with 4 falls if he didnt do an extra combination.

    If Patrick were to skate well, I'd have no issues with him winning Worlds. He's an excellent skater, and I enjoy his skating. I've learned to ignore the mouth.

    All I want is for Patrick to get rewarded with high placements if he skates well, but to get rewarded with poor scores when he's falling four times. Crazy thoughts I know.

    Which top skater had two clean programs? Verner was not clean and I can't take that program he has seriously anyway. I'm not even a huge fan of Chan but his programs as a whole are MILES ahead of Verner.

    Oh but Chan with 4, 5, or 6 falls is still skating very well. Those skating skills, those edges, those artistic asssplats, right. You arent suggesting something so silly as Chan should actually have to not have multiple falls to win events are you. Blasphemy!
