I was reading an Icenetwork article about the women's competition and this stood out to me: I ask this as someone who likes Ashley, but what has she done to earn so many sponsors? I don't begrudge her any of her success but let's be real here, going by what we saw at Worlds, Ashley's not gonna be bringing home a world or olympic gold unless 3 or 4 women retire before Sochi. D/W are the only ones who have prevented the U.S from completely embarrassing themselves at Worlds for the past 3 years and will be the only ones who will prevent them from being shut out of medals in Sochi. Part of me is kinda glad that Ashley didn't win a medal because I feel even a bronze from Ashley would have overshadowed D/W's title. Sorry for the rant, and like I said, I don't begrudge Ashley anything, but I wish D/W would get the attention they deserve and have more than earned.
