    I voted for G&P overall with my "rational brain" because I can't stand to see them ranked low, barely ahead of teams that just don't have their technical proficiency and versatility. All the bad press they got hurt them but if you can see past that, the insane difficulty level, the sense of two strong personalities and the passion is amazing. But I vote for K&P with my heart because I've never enjoyed a team more than those two!

    Note to those who think there shouldn't even be a contest and T&D are the best : 1) how arrogant to impose your tastes! We all come here to debate and you'd deprive us of our fun? And 2) do consider that the rules were different then, and that innovation isn't everything.

    I couldn't vote for current skaters because I think we lack perspective on their work, although I expect great things from V&M!
    Touching the void.

    How rude of you not to acknowledge and respect them.
    Without their innovations - both as amateurs and in their professional career - the couples you prefer would not have been able to accomplish what they did.

    Respecting them doesnt mean everyone has to think best ever for them though. There are other teams that added things to ice dance and were role models for teams to come too.

    I have the same right to my opinion that you do to yours.

    Well the person you respond to was just not agreeing with the one earlier who said there shouldnt even be a poll since only someone without a brain could ever think it it someone other than T&D. That isnt the case.

    Why are Bourne & Kraatz on the poll? Are they even considered a top 25 team of all time.
