    :( Scott must've pushed himself too hard. I hope they recover really soon and well!

    Oh no! Hope it is not serious. I am looking forward to their new programs particularly Carmen (who cares whether it is being skated many times over by others :)). Heal fast and well Scott.

    Carmen is very over-used. I think a whole of skating fans are :confused: over V&M's choice of this music.

    officialcoach, WTH are you talking about?

    Skaters' injuries are something to be sad for, not some "karma" crap to throw a stone at skaters.

    Nothing - TAT obviously Tonya Hardinged Scott so that her prediction that there would be upheaval in the top of ice dance following the Zueva Shpilband split would be true.

    Maybe they are waiting to hear exactly what is going on before saying something. They tweeted on Oct 2 V&M were going to Finland so it seems whatever happened is very recent. Will be interesting to know where the injury happened? You would think they would have started their travels after that tweet and arrive in Finland yesterday (Oct 3). Had practices even started in Finland?

    Skate Canada has apparently sent out a press release (link not yet available? ETA: now see link posted below) that states that Moir has a "slight muscle strain in his neck" and it appears to be a minor injury.

    i'm sorry that certain people don't feel all the due respect for these athletes who work hard and risk pain everyday.

    :rofl: I work hard, too. But I'm not sure that demands that people respect me by not mentioning it if they find my excuses transparent.

    I just don't see any "transparent excuses" here. Even a minor injury like this can turn into a serious problem if not healed properly. They simply realize this, and have decided not to risk it in order to be absolutely healthy and in good form for the rest of the season.

    A Davis/White uber who also happens to hate Virtue/Moir, aren't you? Otherwise I can't explain this attitude. Why would the top ice dancing team with a perfect work ethic not be ready when lesser teams feel that they are ready? This is an absurd thought.

    I'm curious as to why you would automatically assume their reason to be a "transparent excuse", instead of, for instance, an act of caution (and an understandable one, given their history of injury).

    Did I say I found their excuse transparent? I said that, for those who find this excuse transparent, the fact that V&M work hard doesn't demand that they respect V&M by not mentioning it.

    Or, more straightforwardly, whether you believe or don't believe V&M's reasons for missing this competition, I do not think it is a respect issue. People pull out of competitions all the time for a variety of reasons including readiness. Injury is often given as a reason even when it is not strictly true. As a result, people are often skeptical. It has nothing to do with how much they do or do not respect V&M. And if V&M were not ready, why would you necessarily assume that it was a work ethic issue? There are plenty of reasons that they might not be feel 100% prepared for this competition that wouldn't have anything to do
