    They say it does not mean his ineligibility is not valid anymore. But you know how to read between the lines. He will skate in ISU competition Japan Open on October 2nd for team Europe together with Lepisto, Meier and Brezina. Just a little more than a week pasted after his time for appeal was over and technically he became ineligible. And now ISU gives him a green light. Not bad for a start. I am sure he will be fine. :respec:

    :plush: GO!!!

    It's my understanding that each team includes three eligible skaters plus one ineligible skater. Seems like Plushenko is filling the latter role.

    Good question. That's weird. I coulda sworn I read something that said every team had 3+1. . . not that I can actually find anything in English right now. <shrug>

    This story about Plushenko's ineligibility has become way too confusing. JO is an event for both eligible and ineligible skaters (like Jeff Buttle and Yagudin) so he can compete as ineligible. But considering some things that he said in interviews I think that they will apply for reinstatement very soon.

    Japan - Asada, Nakano, Takahashi, Honda(pro)
    NA - Meissner, Nagasu, Lysacek, Eldredge(pro)
    Europe - Meier, Korpi, Lambiel, Shultheiss(all eligible)

    I personally think that Plushenko had better not participate in the Japan Open this year if he does wish to compete on home ice in 2014. He can only skate in Japan in the capacity of a professional for the time being, which will very likely disqualify him from competing at the ISU events in the following years on a permanent basis.

    Didnt' realize Plushy got his own smiley:rofl:

    I see Sasha, Irina and Shizuka get them as well among others. I think Johnny and Stephane should get their own smiley's too.

    Anyway, I'm way off topic. I was just surprised to open the thread and see a Plushy smiley.

    From where comes this very likely???ISU rule?ISU has a list of reasons for becoming ineligible, JO is sactioned event. And there is no professional term in ISU com., a skater is either eligible or ineligible, and Plush is already ineligible. All they can do is cut his mullet.

    Senorita is right, I can't understand why his rumour appeared. Is there any rule which says that an iligible skater can't reinstate his eligibility if he competes as a pro?

    My personal judgment is based on the blog of a certain foreign expert on figure skating: that is, Plushenko had better not take risks under the current circumstances. What rumor? I have no idea what you are driving at. To be truthful, I am not at all interested in this show!

    Yes. He is ineligible as per the ISU. There was an announcement about it recently, so it is not rumor.

    Haircut looks much better. Not much you can do with straight, fine hair anyway. I hope he skates well. Never been a fan, but at this point I do wish him well.

    He could cut it short. I thought the short haircut he had pre-2001 looked a lot better than the power-mullet.

    He was a tiny teen before 2001, so I am not sure it would still suit him well. I like the current haircut.

    I just saw the video of his Nijinksy performance from a short time ago. I found it to be really special. Great charisma, big jumps, well done to the music...

    !!before 2001 he had a yellow bowl as head :wideeyes:
    at one point before the comeback, he had them long, like all long, but i cant remember where i saw it. That was better than mullet.
    I think his torino 2006 were fine, the less mulety ever

    There is a rule against competing in events not sanctioned by the ISU, which would cover all the old pro-style events like Ice Wars or World Pro Championships. There are hardly any of these events left. The only recent one I recall is the Thin Ice competition this past March. Competing in a pro competition is the only offense that prevents a skater from ever regaining eligibility. That would not apply to the Japan Open, though, because it is a pro-am event sanctioned by the ISU. I don't know of any other ISU events where "pros" (ineligible skaters) may participate.

    I'm not saying it has to be the exact same cut. Just a short cut. I think mullets look ugly on anyone.

    Me too! I've seen many guys with this euro mullet, including my Johnny. But you must have wavy or curly-ish hair for it to work, ala the sexy Cristiano Ronaldo.

    As far as my feelings on this competition, I'll quote, Celestia (aka Anne Heche): "Aha wawa ahhhHa!"

    It's not limited to competitions. There are others events that must be sanctioned, and I believe that is where Plushy went wrong.

    Can you tell us more things about this? JO is a sanctioned event and it´s a competition for eligible ans ineligible skaters (that´s why Plushenko can compete). He should send a letter to ISU asking¨" do you allow me to skate in JO", or what should he do, because everybody is speculating that ISU might not like his participation to this event but nobody explains why.

    i thought Jo invited him, since it is ISU event, wouldnt it be a strange point to invite him and then tell him, no we didnt like you participated..BAN.
