Yes, it was used in an Associated Press article that was published on various online news sites in North America.

ETA that I posted this article link yesterday morning in this thread:

The article you linked to one would have to go into ESPN , enter Olympic sports and then choose figure skating. No one is going to do that if you aren't a fan already. Which was my point, that the only people interested in a statement from V&M are people like us (hardcore figure skating fans). It isn't mainstream sports news.

[wild-ass guess]Maybe Igor asked for a cut of the skaters' earnings as part of his compensation package for continuing to train them. [/idle speculation]

:bribe: "Show me the money." :bribe:

Seriously.

The most entertaining thing about this thread is the way people have been so pro-Igor all of a sudden after hating his and Marina's style and skaters and are watering at the mouth with the thought of the end of Canton.

I think funniest is dragging poor Paul Wylie into this !!! LOL!!! next _ Dick Button who is also a skater with a Degree. Tenley Albright!! Debbie Thomas!!! And AP Flatt

Igor was fired by his top 3 students, kicked out of the club and everyone should go to college before 21 otherwise you won't be able to eat.

I am not sure what is going on in the Canton rink, but I think it can be boiled down to this. Igor wanted to coach two new unproven teams by himself, or at least that is what is being reported. Of course that wouldn't sit well with all of the existing teams already there. The "kids", as well as their families, I presume, have spent a great deal of time and money investing in the program there. If Igor is suddenly going to focus his attention on newbies so to speak, it smacks of favoritism, and these are kids who are just a short distance from the Olympics. But I would think that the other teams, not the top three, would be even more upset, as their position in the dance hierarchy is not set. They stand to lose the most in that situation. It is hard to believe that anyone can upset the V/M and D/W dominance, but the other teams could potentially be hurt by that situation. The rink, I presume, wants to remain the home of the Olympians, so they did what they thought they needed to. I am not sure I agree, or what really went down, but is a logical approach to the situation at hand. I am a dance fan, not terribly knowledgeable of all of the rules, but it is a shame. Both coaches are geniuses, they understand what is needed to succeed within the new rules framework. In any event, I wish them all well.

Personally, I would rather have the Olympic experience than the college experience, but that's me. School has never been the highlight of my life.
Heck, school WAS a highlight of my life. And I'd still rather have the Olympic experience!
