    Just curious, why did you set the poll to be closed on 2-6-2015?

    This poll will close on 02-06-2015 at 12:15 AM

    I am surprised (in a good way) lately to see an old FSU poll thread. In 'the best NA male skater' question, Chan was ranked 3rd. It was even before Chan became a 2-time WC.

    Chan has lots of fans, especially after he landed his quad. But he hasn't won his biggest title yet, they just don't want to argue and jinx him.

    My favorites are Abbott, Kozuka and Chan.
    So, I'd love to see a podium with those three guys, even if I know it's almost impossible

    Well if it's what we would like to see, regardless of the odds of it actually happening, I'd like Fernandez, Aaron, and then probably Plushenko to cap off a long and great career.

    ETA - change that. While I'm dreaming, lets make it Fernandez, Aaron, Rippon. I have a soft spot for Adam.

    You and me both, with Chan taking the crown.

    I honestly would love Patrick Chan to win the OGM with perfect programs. He is an amazing skater and a joy to watch on ice.... off-ice is sometimes a different matter.

    If he skates great, one mistake should not hurt him, but if he makes multiple mistakes and still wins the OGM, I may not be happy (unless all others made multiple mistakes too).

    My favorite skaters are Plushenko and Takahashi. I will be happy with either of them winning the OGM, although in Plushenko's case even a bronze will feel like the gold, considering his age and injuries.

    I have many favorites for Sochi but I've voted for Plushenko. I also support Chan, Daisuke & Javier.

    I voted for my main man, Dai of course.

    As a long time figure skating fan my preferences don't always work out so
    I have learned over the years to appreciate all of the players in the game and
    what they put out on the ice. The men's field is amazing and I am sure we will
    have some surprises in Sochi.

    GO Dai!

    I'm not. At all. Even though there are some wonderful competitors in the men's field - any one of whom can take home the gold - Takahashi charms the world, on the ice as well as off. That's my take.

    I'd like to see Adam Rippon win it. However, at this point, I'd be happy if he makes it onto the team...it's a long shot.

His fans are in real life, among those who signed a petition after Vancouver. Two weeks and they were more than 6000,( D. Ten got less than 1000) and the majority of them were non-Russians, they wanted to revision of the result...I think, that was sended to ISU, and there were people who wrote letters directly to the ISU, with similar goals. His fans don't vote here, but will go to Budapest, and Sochi from Peru, Brasilia, Mexico, China,Greece, Japan and yes, from US and Canada. I know. Don't you think he couldn't prepare for the last battles, if he doesn't know what huge support base is in the background?

    How? Three Olympic medals- one gold, 2 silver, and 3 world championships- that's hardly overrated. He earned those medals with hard work, dedication, natural talent, and sacrifices.

    You would like to see.. Do you think, twenty or thirty years from now someone will remember what you were thinking about him in this forum? Nobody. If someone is going to look at the history of figure skating will see an incredible skater, who was unbeatable for a long time with perfect skatings, who had an amazing long career steadily on the top, 15 to 30 (maybe 31) years of age.
    Memorable results and the love of people...who needs more???
