Not just that, but Igor looked a little nervous/uncomfortable just after she said that! :shuffle:

Yeah, I saw that too.

It would be crazy if Igor built another powerhouse in due time, making it 3 big ice dance camps in the same area.

We need something other than the automobile industry in Michigan! :lol:

Marina's last words in this video: Business is business!!!. It would be crazy if Igor built another powerhouse in due time, making it 3 big ice dance camps in the same area. I wonder when this video was made.

Well, I can now report that according to my rep level..I am Zoueva's new coaching partner! I was told to keep it under wraps. That's the real reason why all 3 high level teams decided to stay!

O, i know. When Davis asked judges after FD at WCh what they want from D-W, the answer was: "You need to fire Shpilband" :)))))))))))))))))))

Congratulations to you and the 665 others who got nominated to this position! She did not have to look further than FSU.

Because it happens "all of the time" in your experience doesn't mean that it happens "all of the time" in everyone's experience. IME the only skaters who get called "kids" are the skaters that actually are "kids".

And I think the choice of descriptive words is rather telling in terms of the type of the relationships that the skaters have with their coaches. Calling the skaters "kids" suggests to me a rather hierarchical relationship and an unequal distribution of power.
This is ridiculous. When you teach skaters from the time they are young teens or even pre-teens, which happens to be the case in this particular situation, they will always be kids to you. Just like my kids will always be kids and just like I was always one of my parents' kids. Coaches talk like that all the time, just like parents do. And there is absolutely nothing pejorative about it.

I am still just blown away by this whole situation...I have been out of the figure skating loop for a while due to family issues so have not had much time to be on the board or check out the news. I saw the story on IceNetwork a few days ago and I am just now feeling up to posting about it. I was really hoping D/W would stick with Igor, I get the impression that Marina favors V/M over them. I still just find this whole thing mind blowing, this does not bode well for American Ice Dance, especially if Igor decides to start coaching Russian and Euro teams...once again I am just totally blown away.
