OK. He won't be at TEB either. :(

What is his 'path' to Nats? wouldn't he have to compete at Regionals and Sectionals?

As a reigning Olympic Gold Medalist, I think Evan gets a bye to Nationals.

What, did he expect the USFSA to throw :bribe: at him just for the honor of his presence? :lol:

As an Olympic medalist, Evan has a bye into the 2012, 2013, and 2014 nationals.

Didn't USFS throw money at da Kween back in the day?

I knew that Dick Button's World Professional Championships had 'appearance money' written into some of the skaters' contracts. Didn't realise it happened at the eligible level as well.

Great news for Razzano, though. I really liked his SP from Nationals in 2011.

This really burns me that this announcement is made a few paltry days before the onset of the competition. It's a real dis to the (paying) public, IMO. Unacceptable.

Certainly sounds like it, someone should remind Evan that the USFSA is not Stars on Ice.

Is Evan Sasha's friend?

lol :)

IIRC Sasha pulled out of both of her Pre-Olympics Grand Prix assignments, just days before each of them. That was just as annoying then as this is now.

I wonder how long Razzano has actually known.

Hopefully FC would have given Razzano's coach the heads up that this may happen.

Something tells me we are going to hear the details very soon. This is way too fishy. One of the wealthiest skaters in the world is pulling out of the GP because the usfsa isn't giving him enough money? He has sponsors, gets money from headlining a tour, and was paid to be in a reality tv show. He has to be a multi-millionaire now. Does he NEED money from the usfsa at this point in his life? Absolutely not. What an ungrateful you know what!
Good luck to Razzano. When his jumps are on, they are amazing to watch.

I'd be really surprised if Evan is a multi-millionaire. I'd be surprised if he was a millionaire.

Oh. yeah. Especially considering FC's comments after '11 Worlds.

Isn't Frank Carroll known for being about the numbers?

Not that there's anything wrong with that. ;)
