Tessa and Scott will not go to Sport Marketing Conference :(
The game - will we see them in process :rolleyes:
An so many splits now.... Two greate patners now near Scott - Chock and Crone

:confused:

Are you suggesting Scott should find another partner??? That will never happen. If they stop skating competitively, they will make money on the show circuit and through endorsements from their Olympic medal. Then they will retire and move on to the rest of their lives. They will not find new partners.

But they are very young, and hopefully Tessa is now very healthy, and they will skate for a few more years, to Sochi, and leave a lasting legacy on the sport. These 2 have a special magic. They are not like any other team. They are up there with the best of all time, as a once in a generation team.

I'm rather surprised it's taken this long to resume the "Scott should team with Madison!" refrain; I was anticipating that back when the Madison/Greg rumors first surfaced. Impressive restraint, pani.

But surely Tessa and Scott have withdrawn (at the last minute) from participating in the conference because, upon hearing of the availability of both girls, Scott saw his opportunity to skate with someone below Tessa's level, with whom he didn't have 14 years of deep history, but who, in the only part that matters, never experienced CECS (and power through it to such an extent that she won Olympics and Worlds gold, to say nothing of two additional Worlds medals just before and just after the initial surgical intervention, and a close silver when finally healthy, but still after having missed virtually an entire season). He immediately called it off with Tessa and thus, attendance at the conference as a team would clearly have been inappropriate.

Yes?

If only Tessa and Scott felt the necessity to inform their fanbase of total strangers of their whereabouts and actions on a routine basis.

If they've withdrawn from a public appearance on short notice, it's likely for reasons to which none of us need to be privy. I imagine it wouldn't be skating-related in nature, nor is it something that would necessarily have any bearing on their decision to skate months from now. There can be personal reasons for a decision that may be significant in the short term but not long range, be it something that involves them directly or a family or friend issue. One of them could have the flu, for all we know.

No, they are not splitting.

Sounds like they had a change of plans regarding a business event. No big deal.

This thread can always be counted on to be interesting and exciting, even if it's not always entirely rational.

So they cancel appearing as part of a panel for a 45 minute discussion on sports sponsorship and marketing and this means they are breaking up? :lol:

Only team V&M truly know what's going on regarding the condition of Tessa's legs but if she really is healthy and on the mend then IMO Tessa is the top female (or pretty close to) dancer currently competing. I do like and appreciate the skating of Madison Chock and Vanessa Crone is very good technically but even injured Tessa still is miles above the other two ladies. IMO no contest (I apologize for the Uber-like comment).

I guess the V&M are breaking up/Scott should get another partner posts are running neck in neck with the Irina Slutskaya is pregnant posts as one of the favorite topics for off season discussions.

lavenderblue :lol: and ITA with your post.

While I have never expected V&M to do another whole Olympic cycle (even without injury), as long as V&M are fit to skate I see at least one more world title in them.

Turn "even if" into "because," and you've got it. ;)

....

Okay, I admit that personally I feel that at the present Tessa is the top female dancer. I was just covering myself as I know that others don't care for V&M and find some of the praise for them to be exaggerated.

There are one or two ladies who might catch up if they stay on track but they aren't there yet (Elina I. and Nathalie Pechalat). Of course it seems that P&B weren't IIRC planning on competing for the entire quadrennial.

At the moment I see no reason to expect that V&M's names won't be on the GP list and that they won't actually compete. I'm really looking forward to seeing V&M be able to skate an entire season. Especially after looking at how good they looked the past two seasons having skated with an injury and with missed time. I can only image a clean well trained V&M; that's why I see at least one more world title in their future should they want to try for it.
