Fans of snowboarding complain about the lack of triple flips in judging, ice hockey fans direct their ire at a referee for missing a pivotal call, curling fans are upset about... we don't know, brooms or something? Ice dancing fans draft petitions.

They came in second following the short dance to the USA pairing of Meryl Davis and Charlie White, which incensed fans in Canada, causing the drafting of a petition.
"I appeal to all of your consciences."
Please, look into that part of your heart where good comes from. Embrace that, then read my heartfelt plea.
"do not stand aside to the outrageous scores of the short dance."
