I think it likely has to do with him never having won a major title and also because he was an internal, quiet guy who didn't bring a lot of attention to himself. I appreciate the fact that he wasn't a media whore. It's REALLY hard to believe that as a senior skater, Matt never won a gold or silver medal in any competition nationally or internationally. He was SO MUCH BETTER than he was ever given credit for! Reputation has such a heavy influence on judges though. Regardless, I would prefer to watch a Matt Savoie, a Jeremy Abbott, or a Ryan Jahnke ANY DAY of the week over a Evan Lysacek, Johnny Weir, or Evgeny Plushenko. JMO.
