How about skaters fan clubs?
As of March 2013 - no longer scared of TAHbKA or Andrey aka Pushkin
Suzuki Akiko's spins
I hate to admit it, but when any particular skater gets inflated marks or consistently gets the benefit of generosity from tech callers, it makes me start to dislike the skater even if it's really the fault of the panel, not the skater.
ETA - the fact that Yu Na is queen but doesn't have a full arsenal of triples alongside a mediocre layback and spiral (I still prefer her to Mao, though)
Okay, I have to add: Adelina Sotnikova's LP costume.
I want to add Josee Chouinard sweating profusely after every program. Not her fault but it bothered me. Someone hand her a towel already. Ditto for Jamie Sale's pit stains.
Pit stains in any costume. They make sew in sweat shields.
Visible underwear under tights. (On the non elite level girls who wear tights over underwear and nothing on top of the tights)
Marcy Hinzmann's red boot soles (Louboutins, I'm presuming?) on Battle of the Blades were soooooo distracting. I wanted to watch her and her partner actually skating but just couldn't because the soles are so distracting.
I saw all the comments on S/S and I was like: WHAAAAT?
I LOVE Aliona's cream (or whatever you call it) colored boots. I loved them on Rita Drobiazko and I love them on Aliona. SO much better than tights over boots or huge white boots that don't match anything.
I also think their FS costumes are pretty lovely. Hate the SP ones, though. And I really loved their Out of Africa costumes, so even though sometimes they do go over the top with them, they also sometimes have really stunning outfits.
Visible illusion fabric and nude straps that don't match the skaters complexion. They don't look very pleasing and are extremely distracting. Meryl Davis' facial expressions and over the top acting. It's painful to watch. Also her eye make up is usually rather unflattering. It should be forbidden just like Maxim Trankov's mustache and hair band. Such a handsome man and he hasnt tries everything to make him appear unattractive ... Charlie White needs a haircut and Tessa's smile sometimes seems out of place. I wish ice dancers in general weren't so obligated to smile all the time. And Patrick Chan's eyes scare me.
You all know I'm crazy about Davis/White, but I WISH Meryl would point her feet.

Old, lonely, pathos-hungry, and extremely gullible
Max Aaron's hair.
Mao Asada's LP costume.
Castelli/ Shnapir always messing up the sbs jumps
Chock Bates music in FD
Cesario skating too slow
Meryl's hairstyle in FD
Wagner's FD. go back to black swan or sd!
Osmond's FD this year.
and most of all
Javier's programs and costumes this yr
I also cannot stand Adelina's flesh colored gloves. I don't know why but they bother the heck out of me!
Yuzuru Hanyu's LP costume. It looks like he's wearing an off-the-shoulder evening dress! The diagonal ruffle across the chest disrupts his body line.
Anna Cappellini's dirty boots!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just kidding
I am irritated by skaters' crazy fans...I cannot say I am irritated by something a skater does, but some fans are just totally nuts and that really bothers me because I can't believe that such weird and stupid people can exist.
A grumpy Canadian will always be nicer than a polite Milanese
Meryl's hairdo and makeup for Scheherezade. She's so pretty, in an unusual way perhaps, and she can be styled much better.
Volosozhar/Trankov skating to JSC irritates me. I expected so much more musically and artistically when they first teamed up.
Mao Asada's costumes.
The fact that Jeremy Abbott is so talented, and just hasn't put it together at Worlds (I'm not necessarily irritated at him for this, but for him rather).
That Illinkyh/Katsalapov are still coached by Morosov.
A general one, that there aren't enough voids in ice dance.
Gracie Gold's RED lipstick...
Nubka - Unpaid Slave Laborer...
