    Maybe someone could start a thread on Tom Zakrajsek? I think it may be time for this thread to be put out of its misery...

    Should the Tom Z. thread also include opinions of his hair?

    That may be a perfect spin off thread for the trash can ;)

    Are we allowed to speculate about his sexuality? :slinkaway

    Non.
    Only his hair, reprimands or lack thereof, what colors he should wear, how slow he is, if he's a criminal, and if his parents are well off financially will be discussed.

    I don't find Rachael dull at all and I am considered one of the most exciting men in the world :cool: . Let's make an agreement not to end this thread until Rachael announces her new coach or not and we get to discuss that.

    Does anyone know if the Olympic doctor she was working with gave her the ok to skate with her injury?

    (post 126)

    This might be the rule Rachael supposedly broke. Phil Hersh quoted the first third in his updated article, leaving the remaining sentences which detract from his case live linked, clauses which support the skater (at ISU Worlds) even though injured no matter the severity.

    Was there any truth to that rumor that someone saw Tom Z packing his things at the rink into a box?

    You'd think that if there was any truth to it, Max Aaron and Alex Johnson would announce that they were changing coaches.

    Any word on a coach for Rachael? We're creeping into mid-July here and I haven't seen any news. She will be quite busy with classes starting sometime in August, so I'd assume she's focusing on getting her skating life together now.

    Also, anyone know if she's already in CA? Sorry, if this has been addressed already

    She needs to be more organized than ever before to make Skating/Stanford work. Will she do the exact same programs in 2011-2012?

    She's got a new long program choreographed by Lori Nichol and (I think) Bob Emerson.

    Stanford classes don't start until after mid-September, think they go until mid-June.

    I think her whole family is moving back to Cal (?), so maybe they aren't ready to go yet, therefore her choice of a new coach is secret until she gets there.

    Can we please discuss Rachael's plans in the Rachael's plans thread? That's where I cross-posted and replied to olympics's post yesterday (Stanford, her new long program choreographed by Nichol, etc. are all being discussed there as well).

    Phil Hersh wrote in his article that the email came from the "board". The board publishes "reports of actions", the last after their June 6th meeting http://www.usfsa.org/content.asp?menu=leadership&id=443 where there's no mention of a sanction regarding Rachael. I'm guessing Hersh's inquiry would have gone through the board's rules, grievances and ethics committees and then their findings presented to the full board of directors, then an action taken, or not. Might the board have had a special interim meeting?
