Sad. I love him. He seems like such a great guy.

No one knows yet. My friend is a friend of his and she said she spoke with him (before Worlds) and he said he'd try for one more season. I guess the best bet at this point would to be to wait for announcement.

Did he get a contract with SOI? Scottie seemed to drool over him. I suppose it depends on SOI. If not, maybe he'll stay in another season.

Nothing for SOI. And there "MORE CAST MEMBERS TO COME" module is gone. So maybe next year?

And all his twitter said was:
Good byyyyyyyyyyye 7:43 PM Mar 25th via web

I think SOI only makes contracts with skaters who are national champions or world medalists. Unfortunately Ryan doesn't fit the criteria, so it's less likely for us to see him skates in SOI unless he wins one of the medals. :(
I really hope he breaks Rudy Galindo's record as the oldest US men's national champion for the first time at next Nats. :)

I hope he does one more season, to skate at Worlds without a broken foot. He has a good chance of making the world team, even if Abbott and Rippon beat him. There's really only Mroz to worry about other than that.

Ryan is often his own worst enemy. He lost a spot on the Olympic team, because he doubled the Axel and lutz in his SP at Nationals. So there's no guarantee he'll be on the podium next year even if both Evan and Weir don't show up.

He skated at worlds before, without the broken foot, and did just about the same.

Kudos to him for skating through injury. :respec:
That said, he suffers from the same problem Flatt does: not a GOE skater. So it's hard for him to rack up enough GOE and PCS to place well. If he wants to continue, I'm sure that needs working on.

And Evan. He's said that he's not done competing yet too.

His techniques have improved a lot since 2007.
A Japanese commentator said during the 4 continents coverage Ryan would be one of the top skaters in the world if his skates glide more. The same person criticized him during 2007 Nats, saying he raked in the points only by landing jumps.
