    Not to mention weighing the expense and time involved and their likely future placement against D/W, S/S (two World medalist teams) and a returning S/B, I can understand this decision. They had a great season, got to Worlds, I can understand him wanting to go out on a high note and get on with life. Yes, we'd love them to stick with it, but it's not our money and lives here.

    WHAAAAAAAT? :eek: I thought every skater consulted fan boards and rinkrats before deciding their futures.

    Well this sucks, I really liked them and thought they had potential...I was hoping it was a rumor.

    The Hubbell brother retired, right? That's tough, two top ladies looking for new partners at the same time.

    From the Hubbells' May 12, 2011 USFS press release: Keiffer Hubbell "is exploring his options, both on and off the ice."

    He can have another Madison in his ice dancing life! Maybe?

    To say this off-season is bizarre, confusing, and totally unexpected would be the understatement of the century. :confused:

    Really sad to hear this but I hope that they both are happy with what they accomplished and satisfied in their hearts that it was time to move on.

    I had the pleasure of meeting their parents at nationals in Jan and they were very nice and completely gracious to me. It was a joy to talk with them and you could tell how very supportive they were of Maddie and Greg.

    I will miss them a lot!

    So true.

    It actually started a little before the official end of the season with the D/D split.

    :confused:

    All the best to Greg. I really liked them together, and at least this is not a shady, controversial split like certain pairs team here :shuffle:

    At least, we don't think so. Hopefully Greg doesn't announce in five days that he's actually continuing, hopefully with a new partner. :p

    I wonder if Madison is going to skate with her boyfriend. I find it hard to believe he's especially committed to the Isabella Tobias partnership.

    I have loved these kids for the past 5 years. I wish all the best to Greg in his future endeavors.

    I was hoping the news wasn't true, but I guess it is. Wishing them both all the best!

    Sweet as the idea sounds, the fact remains the USFSA would never release her, Lithuania probably wouldn't grant her citizenship(unless maybe they married? But even then it might take too long) and would he really be willing to switch countries and give up the guaranteed Euros/Worlds for the uncertainty of trying to get established in the competitive U.S. field(after they've waited out the year too)? Especially with it getting harder for a new pair to get qualified for the elite competitions.

    Personally i think the hotness that is Ms Chock was to much for Greg. :lol:

    They were 9th at worlds. Still an excellent accomplishment.

    I'm going to go watch their beautiful Romeo and Juliet exhibition now. I would've loved to see that turned into a free dance. :wuzrobbed

    Sorry to be very picky, but I really don't think it was Tracy Wilson. In 1984 Tracy was competing with her partner Rob McCall and she wasn't working as a commentator at the same time.

    I think that was just a convenient excuse to mark them down since the same music didn't seem to bother the judges at Worlds.

    Sorry to hear about C&Z. This season seems particularly bad for breakups. Especially the unexpected ones.

    I will be surprised if Keiffer would skate with Chock. Didn't he skate because of his sister? If he teamed up with Chock, will that hurt his sister's chance on the podium? I doubt he'll do that??

    I don't think Keiffer will skate with Chock, either. It seems he doesn't want to continue at all. I think if he wanted to continue he would have just stayed with his sister.

    I think H/H's results certainly played the biggest part in their split. They hit the ceiling of their potential as a bro-sis team. I wouldn't be surprised if KH continues with another partner.
