Discussion in 'The Trash Can' started by tkaug, Nov 7, 2012.
And now she's asking for $220K for sponsorships?????? She not only lost all her skills, she lost her mind. WHO in the feck ASKS for that kind of money? I'd think Gracie or Ashley would do just fine with that kind of sponsorship, but Fumie???? Poor Fumie..... delusional as always. Poor poor Fumie. Totally has descended below reality.
I believe Gracie comes from a wealthy family (her good fortune) that seemingly has no problem financing two daughters' skating ambitions. When I read how much it cost to train for a year, I wonder if the skaters aren't being gouged.
Aren't some people tired of beating up on Fumie by now? Especially if they claim their lives are so good in comparison?
I wonder if the other sister (Karly?) has any resentment toward Gracie's success. I noticed when they showed Karly on NBC during US Nats, she has a TOTALLY different body type than Gracie.
She tweeted that she has never been prouder of Gracie after the free skate so I doubt there's any resentment. I'm sure she realized a while ago that she's the Karen to Gracie's Michelle.
I figured the warm-up had just concluded and now that our knives are sharpened, we could begin with the brutal gossip honesty.
Well...yes, I know Karly says she is proud of Gracie. But when she says she is "proud" of her...what does she really mean? Who can truly understand the inner workings of a stranger's family?? (Hey, if we can trash Fumie, we can certainly do so of the Golds when they force their way into somebody else's thread, right??)
You really meant to post that Carly Gold (not Karly) is Chika Suguri to Gracie's Fumie, right? BTW, an improving Carly Gold was 5th in Senior at Midwestern Sectionals and Mids first alternate to 2013 U.S. Nationals... just like Fumie Suguri was 11th in the Eastern section qualifying competition, 0.4 point away from 10th place (top 10 qualified for Nationals).
The question isn't what Suguri's request is converted to any other currency, unless she's planning to train outside Japan. The questions are what that amount means in terms of earning power and training costs in Japan and is it an amount sponsors typically give.
Can anyone from or familiar with Japan put this in context?
My life is terrible. But Fumie's is so much worse buahahaahhahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. *beats the dead horse harder*
Seriously. She isn't stealing to get the money for training, she's asking. It's daft, but it hurts no one.
It can go either way. If the sister doesn't have the kind of body made for skating uber-success, it is what it is and I'm sure she'll be realistic and get over any bitterness. If she still enjoys skating and the family can afford it, why not keep doing it?
The victory celemony of the national competition they had last week.
Look at her behavior here in front of other younger skaters.
There are some skaters she doesn't hug with or clap.
I don't think it was intentional. She seems to be pretty nice to everyone there.
I've always liked her.
Let her do what she enjoys. I feel bad about all the bashing here
SHE IS THE ANTI-CHRIST!
I would doubt that Gracie and her sister are exempt from "sibling rivalry" .
I second that.
Never like it when someone who's life is hard enough as it is gets ridiculed. May her fans support her, may those who aren't her fans simply leave her alone.
LEAVE FUMIE ALONE! *sobs uncontrollably*
I am amazed by the longevity of this thread.
A while ago we had a Valova & Vasiliev thread, which didn't last long.
As for a thread someone started who was about to conduct a statistical analysis of quad jumps, you can count the number of respondents on a single hand.
How exactly is it amazing?
Beating on a dead horse = FUN
Statistical analysis = BORING
I'ts like me saying I am amazed everybody is talking about the same few skaters despite those placed 20th and below at Euros being infinitely more interesting (kinda hard to talk about skaters you've never seen I guess).
And OMG, it's amazing how people can discuss the lifestyles of inbred celebrities instead of meditating on how witchcraft trials are used as means of social control in the Central African Republic. What is this world coming to?
Etc. etc. etc.
tkaug started a similar thread last year but I guess it didn't catch on as it only lasted 8 pages: Fumie Suguri failed to qualify for Japanese Nationals 2011
OMG Fumie was sooooo shady in that awards ceremony clip! People were reaching to hug her and she just ignored them! ( like Akiko) talk about BITTER!
Nothing like perseverance and ever-lasting love
It was so obvious too. Eew. Hate bad sportsmanship.
I can't rep falling_dance for this hilarious post. Could someone please do it for me? Thanks.
I just can't believe she did that in public as a prefecture representative.
She is a 32-year-old adult and some of the competitors are even teenage students!
I have been saying for years that Suguri is literally the spawn of Satan. In spite of my endless searches, I have never been able to find proof. Until now!! Bless your heart!! BURN IN HELL YOU FUMIE-DEMON-SKATER!!!
Really??? With so many mock-worthy posts? This thread is HILARIOUS!!!
I'm not fond of Fumie's skating, I admit.
But every time I watched her in Exhibition, I thought she is better than in competition, I mean much more enjoyable to watch, seems to be much more happy... And I don't understand why she wants to continue to compete. She could be so good and much more interesting in shows.
get a life... she did nothing untoward...
Has Fumie considered switching counties? She hasn't represented Japan internationally for a couple years, so she shouldn't have to worry about the Soldatova rule.
She did a pretty kickass 3lutz in that SP clip. I, for one, would think it would be awesome to have a 30-something international-level skater, and if she brings the bitchy, even better!
And the longer she competes, the longer a lot of people get annoyed, I'm happy.
Plus, I love her sparkly booty shorts! She just needs to re-use her old COP programs at this point, though.
Let's get this one to 80 pages!
Suguri don't need no Suzuki's hugs of mercy! She is the true ice queen!
someone knows why the skaters come 2 by 2 ?
did you see Akiko reach towards Fumie and was ignored? Fumie did that with a couple of other skaters as well..
Wow, this is hard-hitting news...
They're from the same club/prefecture, so maybe this event was organized with a '2 per prefecture' rule?
You accidentally wrote that Fumie should switch "counties", and I was thinking... how would that help? Until I realized.
Did EVERY skater in the event shake hands and hug every other competitor?
There were preparing for the flood.
