    Entitlement skaters

    People wonder why figure skating is down in the U.S.. all you need is see the picture of Ashley at TEB . it shows entitlement, . She isn't the only one. I don't mind confident skaters, but this goes overboard. She doesn't even acknowledge or want to acknowledge the other skaters, how rude and lacking of sportmanship.
    another problem
    all former skaters can't get out of the picture, fast enough like all OGM we are entitled. in other sports they blend in the background after so long; not the U.s Skaters. We have to stay in front line.
    why-they remind of aging high school sports heros who have to relive their glory days until other people are bored, digusted, and don't want to hear it anymore, see them.


    Jamie and David isn't as bad as Ashley, it seems the more she wins, the more she thinks and feels entitlement. her ego grows show it shows and she doesn't hide it attempt it.

    She isn't the only one.

    If they did that in earlier times they wouldn't have sold.

    I guess that was Ashley's twin sister who was exchanging a hug with Liza T. after NHK*.

    Either that or I have no idea what you are talking about.

    Probably the latter

    *oops meant TEB, but OTOH since it makes less sense as I wrote it, its more in keeping with theme of the thread...

    Over the years there have been many more "entitled" skaters and I don't think I'd include Ashley Wagner to the list!

    Maybe President Obama will invite Ms. Wagner to the White House and will be photographed with her doing the "Entitlement Face."

    No sure how any figure skater would think they are entitled to anything... I don't know any that have started on the top and stayed there. Every figure skater i know has hit highs and lows, worked damn hard to get where they are. If it finally starts to pay out for Ashley or anyone else well good for you.. Really entitled you have never been a parent driving your kid all over the place for training, compititions, so on and so forth.. If skating is down, it the cost!!!!!!!!

    Pffft, if figure skaters were more bitchy, people would FLOCK to watch the sport! It ain't no accident that figure skating experienced its last heyday after the Kerrigan knee whack.

    Seriously, are you intoxicated? Ashley Wagner usually seems to be smiling and gracious in competition.

    I'm confused, was there a particular incident that I missed. Ashley always seems well mannered and an excellent ambassador of the sport.

    This is an example of an entitlement poster.

    It's my fault. I gave query5 some postive rep, so she/he is no longer a red-rep blob. I'm guessing red is her/his favourite colour and I messed up, making the blob turn from red to green. So I must take full responsibility for this thread...
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.
