Sorry, not all the input is complimentary and we have to keep the world ballanced.

Judge after last comp:
"Have you been practicing?"
followed by "you look worse than last time"

Just had to make a spot for that...

OK, so maybe it was partially my fault for asking for an opinion :p Sad

don you love comments like that.

we had a judge come up and tell us we were doing something incorrect....but when I asked my own coach he said that was not true. You have to love the way they feel they can be so called honest.. Unlkie you I did not ask for the advice.

Do they think you will come to them?Huh?hmmmmm

Not a comment as such, but I have had the experience of being placed second in a heat in which we had no competition.   Roll Eyes

I wonder if we would be wowed or disappointed?  I mean their legacy is in mechanics not perfomance exactly.

"Your lead style is incompatible with me"

"You're doing it all wrong"

'You don't know what you're doing"

"You lead too strong"

And of course there are those who question every single freakin' move you make  Roll Eyes

Thankfully, these kind of things happen rarely for me here in  Atlanta, up North, hoo boy!
