    Just a small nitpick - he actually had 21 days to appeal according to the official ISU communication.

    Mr Plushenko will likely be reinstated, and this is just a motion they are going through. Since when was a guy like Plushenko completely banned and had no chance for returning let alone with the looming Sochi? The ISU rules have been extremely flexible and adaptable to the extent that all these guys have to do is to issue another communication. LOL

    So what are the odds of Mr Plushenko not showing up at Sochi? I would say ZERO.

    I would say pretty high. His body is not going to last forever.

    So the ISU - if they reverse their decision - show that their rules are not really to be followed? And their decisions are arbitrary and not binding?

    Quite on the contrary. I don't think Pluschenko wants to compete all those 4 years until Olympics, because his body would not last that long. My guess is that he will reapply only for the Olympic year (same as he came back only for this year). So for ISU it will be proof that he has been punished enough (he would have been banned for 3 years after all) and Pluschenko will get what he wants. Everyone is happy! :)

    NO. They will follow the rules exactly that say they can reverse their decision in case I). If they reverse their decision is because the ISU rules have many bullets / categories concerning ineligibility and according to their published decision for Plushenko, his ineligibility falls in the category that can be reversable and skaters can aplly for reinstatement.

    I agree too:)

    There is some logic to this. He could take it easy for two seasons to give his joints and ligaments time to heal up. Then start hard training in the summer of 2012. Regain eligibility for the 2012-2013 season. Compete at Russian Nationals, Europeans and Worlds. Then hit the Grand Prix in the fall of 2013, and cruise on into the Olympics. :)

    I hope EP never comes back to the Olympics. I found him to be arrogant. His skating in my opinion didn't even deserve the silver. His jumps were crooked as can be in the air, his landings sloppy. His sit spins are way too high off the ice and ugly positions as well. Also he does not skate to the music. Any ol music will do for him. There are so many better skaters coming up the ranks, better spins, sit spins, jumps, musicality, etc. Goodbye EP.:D

    Does he only eat the innocent children? If not, I'd like to offer him my she-demon of a step-niece.

    So the ISU word "final" means permanent- irreversible- end of story- no more Plushenko ever again?

    Don't worry. It is not the end of the story but only the beginning of a grand show. Plushenko's amateur status as a singles skater will be restored sooner or later based on what the newly-elected President of Russian Skating Federation said earlier on different occasions. So save your love or hate, sadness or joy, and tears or laughter for last, guys.

    but...do I remember wrong or when all this issue came out people where saying that according to ISU rules the comma (hope it's the right word!) for which he has been banned allows athlethes to ask for eligibility back? I understood that he didn't need to even make appeal, because he could just ask whenever he wanted to come back...

    That's what I thought...once you've been deemed ineligible, you're ineligible forever.

    Unless and until you apply for reinstatement, and the ISU reinstates you.

    The thing is that journalists created larger drama, it is all over the news now that he is banned forever and he is "out of the Olympics", and no mention that he can apply to ISU again via his federation, even his age is mentioned wrong, ok for common people, but journalists shouldnt they do a research before publishing such crap, of course such headlines sell more, still it is unprofessional. One would think he killed a village and got suspended.
