not saying he isn't good. I hate the olympics, but this dude is hyped like he's mike phelps. :D they'll tell you he came in 3rd before they say who won. he clearly isn't heads and tails above everyone else.

You care enough to have started a thread about it. :huh:

For people who care about the Olympics, and speed skating, Ohno IS that big of a deal. All time US medal holder for the winter olympics. I'd say that's a big deal, no?

oh wow, I knew that was coming. starting a thread is when you know you really care about something. :D

I guess being the all time medal holder is not indicative of how good you are, since he hasn't come close to being "the best" in any of the events he's been in so far.

I heard them say he is #9 guy in the world. who cares who the #1 is though becuase ohno is #9. :D

he is, through my observations, whinning pretty boy who is made out to be the best, even though he's not. that is all.

I guess I struck a nerve with the dry dock ohno fan club. carry on with the ohno strokefest.

guys won 8 medals.....not all gold, but 8 medals is 8 medals...highly successful if you ask me.....
that means nothing to me. he may be decorated olympian but he's not the best at his sport, which is what it seems to me he's made out to be. he was the best in the olympics only twice I believe.

Am I the only one who finds that statement ironic?

I mean, everyone knows that you sucks unless you're the best in the Olympics 3 times, right? ;)

He's an American being covered by American TV. You don't think the other countries are covering him like we are, do you?

evidently, you are.

show me where I said he sucks. I said he isn't what he's made out to be. he's really good, but not even close to being the best. and It was only 2 times, not 3.

and mobyduck I understand he's an American being covered by/for Americans. that doesn't mean they should hype the hell out of him. Shaun White is an American and is twice as good as anybody else at his sport, and wasn't talked about 10 percent of the time ohno was/is.

Shuan White was in one event. Ohno races in many events and they need to sell the coverage. He also has the potential to win these events. If watching Speed Skating shows anything it is ANYTHING is possible. I must be missing something:huh:.

I don't care much for Ohno and I also think he's way overhyped. It's also a product of his sport. I mean, how many medals has he won due to penalties? I want to see the guy go out there and kick butt. I agree that he's a whiner, too. There are always going to be some athletes you like, and others you don't for some reason.

I think the whole sport is kind of messed up. Small track with 4 people on it, guaranteed to have people in one another's way, and you can't touch the guy in front you whose going to slow, the guy next to you whose forcing you to slow down, or the guy behind you because somehow that'll be your fault too. :huh::thumbsdown:

Either "let them play", or have them skate alone.

The judging is too subjective to make it sport I'd ever want to be in.
