    Best male pro skater

    OOPS! Please go to the 'corrected' thread.

    ETA: I can't believe I left out Paul Wylie! Can the admin please delete this thread so I can start a new one? Thanks

    Kurt Browning, for sure. Second: Scott Hamilton. Lol, I didn't think Paul Wylie was that great of a pro skater.

    I wouldn't have had Stojko on this list. He barely skated pro. I would have put Jozef Sabovcik on since he was pretty well-known as a pro.

    I voted Kurt Browning though I would have preferred to have more votes. I would include Scott Hamilton and Yagudin. I think Buttle and Lambiel will be called successful in another 10 years' time.

    I voted for Robin Cousins. He was such a wonderful performer and choreographer that Scott Hamilton's own style was affected. Scott kept multiple triples to try and beat Robin in competitions, and Scott developed a more crowd pleasing style due to his rivalry with Robin.

    Robin could skate to Broadway show tunes, old soft show music, modern rock n' roll and classical pieces and opera. He could spin in both directions and he "invented" the lutz jump with both arms overhead as a professionsal. See You Tube 1986. He did the "Rippon" before Adam was even born and had the world's largest double axel (19 feet in distance).

    He was magnificent.
