I have seen very few 19 yr olds rubbing their crotches in public. I guess I'm hanging out in the wrong places.
He's a defector . . . HE'S FREE
Like it or not, Morosov's programs for his rising Euro stars (yes that includes Javier) were designed to grab attention and stand out, not to please few "Bach-loving grandmas" and figure skating purist on this board. If he could not deliver, so many skaters would not be dying to work with him. That's all.
Yeah sure. When his skaters are not able to showcase the fact they can glide, it's such an achievement

I don't believe the judges gave Amodio any points for crotch-rubbing.Save it for the clubs, or for the gala if you must. The audience doesn't get the chance to phone in and vote ad infinitum, and they're actually there to watch skating in the first place. It's a sporting competition. The 19 yr. old didn't do his own choreography. There are ways to go modern , or sexy for that matter, without being so completely low-brow about it. And there are ways to get attention without always relying on sex , or skin.
But that's Morozov..always up for sleaze.
I think highly enough of Amodio's talent that I don't think he has to resort to cheap tricks to advance , but we won't see him without cheap tricks until he gets away from Morozov.
I think Fernandez has at least comparable promise and I'm really looking forward to his skating next year.
Interestingly, he is following Adam Rippon's path. May he have better luck with Orser than Adam
Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
A: Competition forums on the board are available to those with a Season Pass or a premium membership How to View Kiss & Cry
Now we can finally remove the FREE FERNANDEZ banners! Wheeee!!!!!!
