Well.... good luck to Caydee and John.

I loved Y&C together, but can we see Denney & Coughlin compete at least once before declaring them the worst US pair evaaaah and predicting the Armageddon of US pairs skating? :shuffle:

^Trying to be positive here.

I think Caydee is catlike in her landings. This will help her land powerful throw 3 jumps and the triple twist with someone of John's size, and these might turn into awesome elements for her.

Both are decent to good SBS spinners and jumpers, too. Both have experience under their belts landing 3toes and 2x's at least, so perhaps they can build on upping the ante there.

However, any height John gives her on Lifts will be negated by her mediocre mid-air positions [oops. That was negative!].

And please, no death spirals with the a$$ in the air :yikes:

John you idiot what were you thinking? You went from having a ballerina for a partner to someone with all the grace of Rosie O' Donnell.

I really hope Caitlin pair up with someone else better and stronger. Will be looking closely for any announcement ... :hat1:

Are Caydee and John dating? I can't think of any other reason why they'd be so intent on skating together. They're becoming the Leann Rimes/Eddie Cibrian of the skating world, unpopular and leaving two broken partnerships in their wake...

And it's official....

Ouch to the Facebook comment at the end of the press release. Icenetwork might want to think twice about leaving that comment up.

Good luck to this team. Not really of fan of their style of skating, but with the current state of US pair skating, I'm sure they will be very successful on the national stage.

Not suprising but still vomit inducing. I hope Mark & Amanda return! Please!

Okay, it's official now. I won't be rooting against them, but they'll have to really work hard to win me over.
Right now I prefer Amanda and Mark and Mary Beth and Rockne...and Caitlin and her new partner yet to be named.

I am hoping for 2 good teams to come out of this.

Me too.

Agreed. I'm not at all a fan of how this all went down, and it seems stupid and pointless to me as an outsider for John to leave Caitlin. But I also understand that I'm an outsider to the situation: I hardly know the ins-and-outs of what was going on behind the scenes. So while I'm unhappy about it, all I can do is hope we get two really superior teams instead.

Did Delilah orchestrate this?

I think of this as a sports trade, nothing more. John asked to be traded to a different team. It doesn't make him a bad person. It's not like Team Caydee drove over to his house, stuffed him into a laundry bag, and kidnapped him to the Springs.

Agreed. Looking forward to seeing this team next season.
