    Talking I dare to ask! (Beware! Not a pc thread!!!)

    OK, let's go - which skater(s), past and present, do you find extremely dull/boring etc.? I don't think there's anything wrong with it, it's probably just a matter of personal taste. I come up with my choices later.

    PS: If you don't like this topic, just do not participate!

    Enough of the negativity, already! This topic has been done to death. Are there skaters whom I think are boring? Yes (a few), but I'm not going to insult them or their fans on a public forum.

    Todd Eldredge, Michelle Kwan, Evan Lysacek, Elvis Stojko, Patrick "Candyman" Chan, Julia Sebystian, Nicole Nikodinov, Petrova/Tikhonov, Jeremy Abbott (overrated!), Zhang/Zhang ...

    What does political correctness have to do with this thread?

    Anyway, I find this thread extremely dull/boring. Contrary to the OP's believe, this thread isn't really anything new or special or really that controversial.

    While I agree on some, some are just blasphemy!
    I mean, the Kerrs?! Davis/White?! Delobel/Schoenfelder?! You just named pretty much half of my favourite dance teams of all time lol

    Ok, there are just too many of those, who are boring to me (for example like 80% of the current ladies), but the most extreme cases would be:
    all Chinese skaters, except Sui/Han
    Petrova/Tikhonov
    Totmianina/Marinin
    Patrick Chan
    Evan Lysacek
    Brandon Mroz
    Grushina/Goncharov
    Dubreuil/Lazon
    don't remember Todd Eldredge too well, but as much as I can recall, he truly was

    P.S. There is a whole bunch of skaters, who are not exactly boring for me, but extremely irritating, which is even worse. Wanna make another topic of negativity? I'm all for it

    WOW!! Im surprised so many people consider Kwan boring, meanwhile I think she had one of the best choreographies ever.

    Roxanne, if you hadn't put down the name of Johnny Weir, you would have written almost all of my favorites

    LOL, until Takahashi and Weir, I didn't realize this was supposed to be sarcasm. Just goes to show how everyone's tastes can differ.

    I think that was her intention.

    People say Kwan because she continuously beat their favorites over 10 years of competition. Sour grapes, I tell ya, sour grapes (which, incidentally, could be purple)!
