I was thinking of someone like Madeline Aaron...who has a great partner, but maybe not physically strong enough for long-term success.
There are a lot of American jewish girls with two triples out there. He could try a different one every year if he wanted to.
As a bat mitzvah and reams of paperwork. I guess it got easy as of late but then Reed hasnt gotten it ! And as Ziggy said perception , everyone is assuming it was his fault. Krasnopolsky. I heard it wasnt. Strange but thats what I hear. I also hear that the good Israeli girl is saying shell skate for any country. Doesnt care. Montalbano is still looking for a jewish partner rather then another country. Perception is quite interesting.
Does Allison Reed have a Jewish grandparent? Or is she just hoping that they'll just kind of bless her in?
Use Yah Blinkah!
My perception is that you'll criticize any skater, without ever providing any proof for your claims, so long as you think it will make Montalbano look better. What purpose does that serve? Do you think it's helpful to Montalbano in any way?
Montalbano doesn't even need a Jewish partner to represent Israel. Unless she wants to go to the Olympics, and it's not as though she has a high likelihood of accomplishing that.
Actually, maybe not even then. Could either of the Mahmud brothers take up pairs?
I am reading all of this and the comments that I dont "know" anything !!! None of you know anything about these skaters personally but choose to sit back and hurt people you dont even know. These people are some of the hardest working Nice people I have ever met, and If you knew them ,not just what you want to Believe you might actually like them. Have you ever spoken to Danielle? Or her family? You would be shocked. Not only are they extremely caring nice people but her mom has been battling cancer for years. They help everyone !! They rescue animals ! I am sick by your comments. If this is the world of figure skating , I am going to use my platform as a journalist to expose it. You all choose to champion the evil and hurt the nice people. Enjoy !!! It will get you very far.
Dear Montalbano - please get off fan forums in general. Reading the content or posting will not improve your skating or get you confidence.
Normal fans of the sport do not care what kind of person you or skaters in general are because fans of skating love skating. If skaters rescue animals or are assholes to their neighbors - skating fans dont particularly care. As long as it does not reflect their skating.
I recommend getting off twitter as well.

As of March 2013 - no longer scared of TAHbKA or Andrey aka Pushkin
You might try taking the forum a little less seriously. Most posters who pick on skaters do so because they dislike something about their *skating*, not any personal reasons. The sooner you learn to differentiate between the two, the better off you are. If, OTOH, you find yourself unable to do so, then maybe this isn't the best place for you to post. Why not start a FB group for the skater you like? Unless she wins a controversial Olympic gold, things should be a lot more tame.
