    My Trixi banner would be SO-O-O far ahead of your banner by the time the LPs started that your banner would stand no chance!

    Worlds and GP could be great fun next year if we have the Battle of the Banners. Previous competitions, such as the last Olympics, could be re-fought in the stands while the skaters stop their programs to watch the mayhem. Banner regulations would control size and sharpness of staff. World Banner Teams would be chosen.

    Back to reality, I don't know if I would enjoy sitting near a banner-wielding fan. At the very least, it would be distracting and aggravating. At worst, it could be dangerous. One might have to buy insurance in the competition ticket package. Maybe I should go back to bed until sanity returns.

    Actually, something I did notice was that the banners in the OP (the Yagudin and Plushenko ones) were hung over the railings and not held up in the crowd, which is an excellent idea as it gets the banner seen, but doesn't impede anyone.


    I'm glad to know I'm the only person working on a Kulik banner!

    Maybe because people made expensive banners years ago and want to get their money's worth?

    Well, it seems that these wacky historical banners worked for Plushy...so maybe Dick Button will be reinstated after I wave my "I Stick with Dick" and "On the Button" creations at the next Skate America!

    Oh please, you won't be as well remembered for your banner as mine.

    I am so angry. I just got word that my "Keeper of Tonya Harding's Spiral" banner has been ruled illegal. I will have to petition the USFSA.

    I will just sit back and take great comfort in my banner's gold medal. It was traced far better than your banner!

    Yagudin & Plushy banners at 2011 Worlds, for example.
    They often do this in football (soccer). Manchester United fans still sing songs during matches and/or have banners about players who played for them years ago! Even for players who didn't stay that long but had one truly memorable game, e.g. scoring against a big rival. It's because they still admire/love those players even though they aren't there any more. I think it's great

    Re: the Plushy ones - his fans might have been trying to make a point

    My banner will be prettier and and have greater audience appeal than your banner.

    Surely we can all agree on the necessity of a Jackson Haines tapestry?

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    David Jenkins banner in the works. It will be the only banner with better edges than Patrick Chan's at next years Worlds men's event.

    Are you going to use blanket stitch for the edges? Or take the easy way out and just use an overlocker?
