Yes, he does many things well, but that doesn't mean we should think he is the be all and end all of all things skating when he keeps falling as many times as he does. And I think what bothers a lot of people is that Patrick's falls seem to be overlooked or ignored when he competes, and that "break" isn't given to most other fine skaters. I'm neither a Chan fan nor a Chan hater, but it bothers me to see someone who falls multiple times continually held up like he is. It is pretty obvious something has gone seriously haywire with his jump technique and he needs to get it fixed pronto. As to his public persona, he needs to develop a few filters or at least train himself to pause and think for just a brief moment before he speaks. Regardless of how brilliant his skating is, he comes off like an ass or at best a petulant child in interviews, and that's not the behavior of a champion. Chan fans seems very frustrated that some can't separate his skating and public personas, but they do go together and can affect how people look at a skater (the world didn't exactly cut Nancy Kerrigan a break for a few ill-timed remarks after Lillehammer either, and Pasha Grishuk is as well know for her egotistical attitude as for her skating). Similarly, some fans cannot separate the quality of the edges as a sign of brilliance when the same skater can't seem to hold that quality edge consistently in his jumps. Chan has a lot of fine qualities, but the negatives sometimes overwhelm those fine qualities.
