Like they said at NBC interwie. I sad - i feel, like they talk they have only two chances- they will skate all seson in next year or will not skate at all.

They will not show new exibition - After worlds, there are seven shows in Japan, and then it's on to the Canadian tour of Stars on Ice, where the team plans to reprise a modified version of the Olympic free dance to "Mahler's Symphony no. 5."

"We definitely see [the tour] as a way of celebrating," Moir said. "It's a way for us to skate for our fans, all across Canada. It's a whole new world for us; we're going to find out what the touring world is all about."

Inteersting why? I could understand, they want to show all canadiance wich dance bring gold to them, but i think they could made two new exibition for show if they are healthy and want skate.

Will see what life will bring to them, like Scott tell There's a lot more of life to experience, as well,
At this point i dont know, what Scott could doing if they will not compete more

No surprise. I've sensed from Tessa for some time now that she was unsure about competing after 2010.

Not to mention, will they ever top the experience they just had in Vancouver?

"Virtue and Moir announce on conference call today they are undecided about competing next season." http://twitter.com/LynnRutherford

Ice Network is making this out to be a "bombshell", but they're not saying anything new at all.

In every recent interview where they've been asked about their future plans, they've said that they haven't thought past the Olympics, they'd be sitting down to talk about "where do we go from here" at the end of the season, etc, etc.

I think that is absolutely true. They are goal-oriented people and they have been incredibly focused on their Olympic goal. Now that it's been achieved, they really have to take some time to think about what they want to do next.

Not news at all.

I think they could skating only because they will re-focuthing on art in ice dance. Before they thought only about medals and now even will not made new exibition for show.If they will start thinking what they could new for ice dance they could still skating. But maybe they didnt like skating at all if they didnt talk even about skating in shows in the future.]
I think Scott understand, that he need to skate. It will be sad, if such a tatlnted guy will stop, becaue Tessa dont want skate anymore. But i could understand her - she will go to Universaty, will have new life. And she had such a hard time during last season

I think they love skating, and I can't imagine them stopping permanently. I think at the very least they would continue to do shows.

But I could definitely see them taking a year off the competitive circuit, during which time Tessa could increase her university course load and they could take stock of what they want to achieve in other areas of life. They have been so single-minded in pursuit of their Olympic goals, it might be exactly the right time to take some time out and re-group.

It's JMO, but even if they take time off, I think we'll see them skating again in the future (either competitively or non-competitively). I don't think they'll be able to stay away.

That was my question - if they want to skate, why they will not made new exibition number for CSOI?
And i agree with you - they could take some time off, maybe made some not-skating shows (like dancing with the stars for example)? but Tessa said in this interwie - she couldnt imaging compete not all season. Its look for me - we must made all competition or not doing anything. Thats i cant understand.
And for "we want to have another expirience" i coudnt understand - what expirience could have Scott? To be a fairman after he is OG medalist?
And i cant understand Marina- why she need to talk everywhere, that they will stay? If look, like she will lose something if they will go and she didnt want to give this information for press.

Pani, did you see V&M's interview with Peter Carruthers on NBC after their Olympic performance? They talk to him about how much they love the Mahler program, and Scott says "This is one of those programs that at the end of the year, you don't want to let it go.....I wish I could just keep going....." and Tessa is nodding her head. Perhaps that is part of the reason they are keeping a version of it for CSOI....because they love skating to it so much (and they know the audience will enjoy it too).

Regarding the competing all season bit....Tessa says "If we're going to compete next year, I can't imagine not doing the fall [competitions]. As we've seen, they really set you up for the year." They know from experience how much it helped this year to have a full Grand Prix season to work out the kinks in the programs and be fully prepared for Nationals and Olys (unlike the previous year when they had to fly by the seat of their pants). They really like the feeling of being well-trained and prepared, so they'd rather compete for the entire season (not jump in halfway through).

Scott is a smart, hard-working guy with great leadership skills and there are many other things he will be successful at. He might as well start figuring it out now! (Although I think they'll continue to skate in some form or another.)

And as for Marina....I think she has more plans for their development and she hopes they will stay. But she knows it's up to them.

JMO.

Thanks for those quotes from V&M, pani & flowerpower. :)

I'd love to see them next year, of course. But to accomplish an OGM so soon in their senior career is amazing and I'm not surprised that they are torn between going out on top and knowing they still want to compete in some way.

Even though I've been following them since the start of their career, I still feel like they've barely scratched the surface of what they're capable of doing, so I'd be extremely disappointed to see them retire. I almost hope Meryl & Charlie win Worlds, just so V&M feel like they have one more goal to stick around for. :confused: :slinkaway

I've been thinking that for weeks...it's terrible and selfish of me but I don't want them to stop skating!

I don't want them to stop, either. They were the first dance team I really got into.

What for example he could doing without education? His friend Charlie will finished colladge in this spring and he will skate in next season.
IIMHO its very hard to start from zero, if you was on the top in another professiaon. And its hard to do without education.
Tessa could doing this because it look, like for her go to University is one of the importatnt things in her life. But i couldnt understand 1 thing - Meryl and Charlie both study in colladge and won silver at OG at the same time. Why Tessa couldnt skate and study? Or she have another problems.
This situation for lme look a little like Bourn-Kraatz split after they atleast won gold at WCh. Wgy Victor need to go to police at first and then he was lucy, that Macleod invite him to coach in Vancouver. I cant understand, why he didnt want to made some money in shows after tha victory.
And what at the end? He is working in figure skating now.

I hope Tessa will understand, what she is doing the best and we will see them at show at least.

As for D-W. I feel, like if V-M retried now, it will be hard for Marina and she could lose her passion for work, wich she find, when start working with V-M.

I think like this too.
And D-W have good chances - they traning ,ore after OG, maybe coaches want to give some gold and for this team too and for USA, because we will not have canadian judge at this WCh.
And i think if they will not have gold from WCh, they want to stay

Never thought I'd say it but I am starting to hope D/W win too. If it's the only way V/M will stick around...

Well, I'm still hoping V&M win............being 2nd at Worlds this year would just be anticlimactic for everyone. I don't think their going to retire any time soon. They both love skating and even if it's just in shows, but I still think they'll be competing for a little while yet...............I sure hope I'm right.
