I totally agree with you SUN. The allegations are unfounded and offensive.


I really believe that Cinquanta would be much happier to just cnacel the event all together.

I don't think so millipied, because then the ISU would not receive broadcasting rights.

especially since the reinstatement of Plushenko was pretty sure already before Worlds 2011...

I though I read that he was going to be re-instated in April. I thought Mishin/Plush said it was pretty much a done deal.

I am not Russian and I am saddened by the mudslinging and cynicism towards the Russian Federation. .

I am not either, and I agree. I wouldn't be surprised if the other Russian posters aside from SUN are more than a little bit annoyed at the implications some posters have been throwing around.

It's looking more and more like Russia and Moscow now. Which is a good thing IMO, as they've stated the Govt will back financially the event, which I have a feeling will end up being their ace in the hole.

I'm just glad it looks like the limbo the Athletes have been placed in is coming to an end and they can start preparations again.

Would some not be in a 'conflict of interest' voting for their own country? :shuffle: We start our board meetings asking if there are any conflict of interests :confused: At that point any countries who have submitted a bid should declare conflict and not have a vote.

BTW my money is still on Moscow as it was last week ;) Although selfish me would like Lake Placid :)

yes, I was referring to this fact :)


I read that Cinquanta'll vote only if there's a tie (source: http://www.forbes.com/feeds/ap/2011/...e_8368957.html)

Just decide already so we can move on to who's going to skate. I would be thrilled if Lepisto is well enough to be reentered. :cheer2:

I don't think anyones really considering the factor that it really was Japan's turn. During this tragedy Japan was forced to cancel an event they were planning to host. All the time invested not only in preparing to host the event all the preperations and training the athletes endured only to know that they won't be competiting on home soil. Even though Japan forfeited the right to host the championships, one might consider, where would Japan like it.

Where would Japan like it? In Japan! But stuff happens. I'm sure now that they can't host because of this horrible tragedy that they don't really have an opinion re: Colorado Springs vs Moscow, for example.

Japan is the center of the figure skating univer$e right now. They get tons of events. Speedy has nothing but reverence for the JSF and their financial pull.
