It does bug me that US fans are so hard on their own skaters, so I try maybe a little too hard to reverse that. I'd like us to be more like Canadians and support everyone.
It's nice to see I'm not the only one who has observed this! I too would love to see U.S. fans stop being so down on their skaters. It happens toward the U.S. ladies too, and it happened toward U.S. men during a very prodigious and rewarding period of depth and of skill and camaraderie amongst U.S. men who were influential internationally, but who due to lack of consistent quads, were often given short shrift reputation-wise and in the scoring. Of course, that has changed with the pioneering rise of Nathan Chen (who gets his fair share of grief from some U.S. fans as well -- many U.S. fans are not bound up in supporting only U.S. skaters; a number of U.S. fans seem to prefer skaters from other countries; of course this can be positive as well as negative; in general it's great to be supportive of all skaters, but at least be respectful and supportive toward athletes in your own country).
