    Some of the posters take their venom to newer and newer heights. The funny part is that their comments say nothing about Chan but only speak about themselves!

    If it weren't for Patrick, Scott, and Plush, what would we have to talk about?

    If Chan wants to put this disaster of Worlds and WTT behind him, he has to start using his brain and stop thinking with his "Johnson." This is the root of his troubles because he is a total Momma's Boy, i.e. a tough-talking, macho-appearing man who is totally dependent on the women in his life for his maintenance, ego, etc., and all things he won't do for himself.

    He is a mentally weak individual when it comes to being a true-blue COMPETITOR. He doesn't want to compete, he wants to be crowned. He doesn't want to win for satisfaction, he wants to win for the adoration of a nation. When he doesn't jump well, he blames and blames and blames and makes excuses. Then he states he should win the competitions anyway.

    He is apparently a cry-baby, an expert excuse maker and a mental weakling, IMHO. This is why I am not a fan of his skating or him.

    Thank you for so much detailed insight into Patrick's character and psyche, since you apparently you know him personally, and SO well.

    I imagine he'd be delighted to not have you as a fan.

    Aren't ALL the skaters coming off their biggest competition of the year, and aren't they ALL about to start preparing for the Olympics?

    Anyway, he will start his preparations for the Olympics by skating in SOI and then doing a tour in China.

    Yes, they are. However not all of them are going directly into a tour to earn the money to pay for the next season. It would have been an advantage to Chan to have used the time between Worlds and 19 April to work on his program(s) for next year. V/M, who are on the same tour, didn't go to WTT, even though they've been practicing an altered version of "Carmen" for Canadian Stars on Ice. Wagner and Duhamel/Radford were on the same schedule as Chan.

    There seems to be a double-standard for singles and teams in WTT; M/T-M could have gone if D/R didn't want to go, but it seems the singles are expected to show up unless they're injured.

    I didn't know that multiple achievements in figure skating would get you the adoration of a nation in Canada. I've always thought few Canadians really care for this sport, which would explain why sponsors aren't easy to find at all and skaters whose parents aren't wealthy have a lot of difficulty in financing their training. But as a non-Canadian, I don't know much about the popularity of figure skating in Chan's country and maybe Canadians do kiss the ground their figure skating champions walk on.

    Yeah, all of those parades that were planned, ending in a coronation. All on hold now.

    Unfortunately, some people still hate him for his brutal display of honesty at WTT (which I don't personally get? That was not the first time he expressed his disdain for WTT).

    Figure skating is fairly popular here, I'd say more popular than it is in the US. But I wouldn't say we kiss ground our figure skating champions walk on. We root for skaters from our own country just as people from other countries do. But that doesn't mean that we favour all Canadian skaters above all others or are unable to objectively appraise them. For example, I expect you'll find few Canadians who think D&R should have beaten S&S in pairs at Worlds, despite having the cleaner skate. Or going back much further, few Canadians who think Stojko should have beat Urmanov in the 94 Olympics.

    It's popular, but not well known. Not everybody knows the name 'Buttle' or 'Dube/Davison', though Buttle is definitely more well known. It was rather big here when he won worlds - he was invited to do a skit on Canada's biggest sketch comedy s how (and demonstrated that he should stick to skating and not acting). It's definitely not the same as during the days of Browning or Stojko. Chan has, (a few years, I believe) won awards for being the amateur best male athlete in Canada, though.

    Most people get their skating exposure through the O's, which would be why people know of Buttle, or Virtue/Moir, or Rochette. Or through Battle of the Blades, these days. A Canadian non-skating fan isn't all that likely to watch skating on TV if it's not the O's.

    So no, Chan doesn't have the adoration of a nation, though people acknowledge that he is good at what he does. He does seem generally well liked here, though.

    That just showed your burning hatred to him. Chan will be very happy if you feel the same like this after Sochi.

    Yes. This. WHY would anyone think this was unusual?? He's been doing it and winning all year..only this time was different. The only thing I was 'irritated' about during this competition was that there was no Artur Gachinski skating in it...Thank you. That is all.

    I just want to know why, when anyone says anything remotely negative about Patrick Chan, their comments are perceived as "Seething with hate" for the man. I do NOT hate Patrick Chan..he has done nothing to me. But this season, he has won so many competitions with sub-par skates that I believe, IMHO, that we should just mail him the Gold for Sochi, and let the other skaters concentrate on the next Olympics!! Patrick CAN save himself..but he needs a new technical coach to do it. He skates like this and wins the Olympics....well, I would not want to be held responsible for what happens to him...in the press, of course. So, he'd best be sucking it up now, and figuring out how to handle it. He has no problem with a sub-par skate (IE Worlds this year). What he has a problem with is not WINNING with a sub-par skate.

    And there is as much venom in the replies to folks who call Chan out as there is in the original post...just sayin'..
