All above skaters have been doing much more efforts than general people, so they became Olympic and world champions. All guys are great!
Why don't you respect them? Or can you do efforts as much as they did,even if you replaced joints or lost ligaments?
I respect Alexei Yagudin as a skater, I really think, he is one of the greatest skater, in this forum he is the best. But I don't like him as a person. Sometimes he is a rude man in civil life, I read his tweets, and I was surprised in january. Didn't you read them?
After that @AlexeiNews:
"I will not comment on Alexei's comments lately. Or condemn or condone his thoughts or feelings.i merely translate or choose not to"
You know, I'm angry. Maybe you know the scandal in Russia, between Plush and a journalist. Yag was asked in this matter, and what did he answer?
Alexei Yagudin: Plushenko able to recover faster than normal people
- Nuances of scandal, I do not know, so comment on the situation, I would not want to. I can only say that we live in a free country, where everyone is entitled to their opinion - said Yagudin.
- Chances for gold Games Plushenko is?
- At the Olympics everything can happen. Of course, the chances of Eugene more than an athlete from South Africa or some other exotic country.
You know, Yag always grab every opportunity to be a little bad to say about Plush. Opposite situation this is not true. Plu always speaks with great respect on Alexei. He was invited to Plushy's birthday show, he participated in it, after he said such sentences? Probably a good deal of money received for participation ..

TROLL TIME!!! This should be fun. Thanks, lala, for enlivening my day. I wait with bated breath for the entertaining fallout this should generate.
Le Petit Prince is my favorite, but the best all-around competitor and showman had to be Yagudin. I'm not a big fan of some of the things that he has said, but no one could beat him when he was on. He made the sport of skating a true sport - a competition.
As far as past results, since the 2006 Olympics (where he finished 4th), Lysacek only missed the podium once in a international competition, (5th at 2007 WC). Not too shabby.
Regardless of whether you like his style of skating, there is no denying the fact that Lysacek has had a great career. He has was two-time US champion, two-time 4CC champion, Grand Prix Final winner, World Champion, Olympic champion, and two-time world bronze medalist.
Alexei said congratulations to Plushenko and Yana for their baby birth.
As far as I know, Alexei is charming and sweet as a person, and is loved in the world, from children till elder people, by ladies and men very much. And his fans always stand by his side and support him, no matter what happens.
If you ask me, I'm not interested in any scandals. Just respect them as a skater and wish get well soon as a person when they are injured.
You look to like scandals better than support a skater. You are lucky to live in a free country, where everyone is entitled to their opinion
In the free countries everyone is entitled to their opinion, but the defamation or slander aren't free, what the journalist did. I just read from a very smart people:
"1. No one shall be subjected to arbitrary or unlawful interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to unlawful attacks on his honour and reputation.
2. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks. "
And you're not talking about the essence. I think, it would have been elegant, if Yag says: I don't think that Plushenko had no surgery and it was a PR trick. It's impossible. That was a sneaky sentence, what Yag said. And as I said, it wasn't the first time, when Yag says a little bit bad things about the civil and the athlete Plush. And I read many statements of Alexei. Still Plush is very patient, he never says bad opinion about Yag, always praises him.
And I don't understand, why do you think, that I love the scandal? But I don't like the injustice!
