    Could Purple realistically win the Gold at Sochi?

    No, but Gold just might win the purple.

    I thought purple doesn't need gold. Well, maybe I was wrong. Every color wants to be gold. Sorry, purple is behind red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and indigo. It has to wait for its seventh turn.

    If Kwan were to have tried Luge - before she actually tested for her senior skating test and had she liked it - luge that is - not the test, would she still be competing today or would she have switched to a purple bobsleigh?

    Purple by itself is too one-note and will have to show a greater variety of skills and transitions to have a realistic chance at the podium. Maybe in 2018?

    Also, you know the metallics will be getting all the politiks.

    (I love purple)

    PURPLE IS THE OVERLORD IF THE ICEYVERSE. Didn't you know?

    Although that filthy cheating Maroon is bargaining with the judges...

    I believe that Purple has a very good chance to win Gold. I heard a rumor that
    Purple is working on something very groundbreaking that would give it an edge over
    the other competitors (something to do with glowing and shape-changing).

    Is this a joke?

    Of course Purple would dominate in every discipline! That's why it's not allowed to enter. The ISU is full of colorists!

    And shadeists! Violet has been favoured over Light Purple for YEARS!

    Purple doesn't need to choose a shade. Purple is just purple.

    Oh puh-lease! Shows what you know! Purple has the best qualities of both Blue and Red. Purple combines what Blue has and what Red has and you end up with the PERFECTION that is PURPLE!!

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

    Purple will really be the dark horse going into these championships.

    I disagree! Without blue there won't be purple. Without red there won't be purple. With red and blue, you get three colours - red, blue, purple. With purple, you get only purple (how boring). Therefore, red and blue are more important than purple. So Purple deserves only bronze.

    Purple is a hybrid of Red and Blue. Red and Blue could never be what Purple is, but if Purple wanted (b/c it's so fabulous...) it could separate itself and become Red or become Blue. Red and Blue can't do that!

    That is why PURPLE REIGNS SUPREME!!!
