    Terrible news!!! Nat'l Champs and 6th in World! From my previous posts in another thread, my intuition so far is on track----I am expecting the announcement of John pairing with Caydee Denney!! Then I will go buy a lottery ticket ;)

    WTF?! They were the only American pair that I liked :fragile:
    I'm on my phone so I can't open the article - but do they give any reasons? I don't understand why they would split after such a great year :(

    I'm really sad about this. The best pairs team the US has had in ages, and they're both such nice people. I'm glad they had this emotional season together, and wish them all the best in the future, but I"m sad we'll miss seeing how they could have developed together.

    This is so sad. I really enjoyed this team.

    What is up with US Pairs skaters? They get a year or two of success and then bail. Will we ever see another US pair on the Worlds Podium?

    WTF? Why!?

    Completely unexpected after finishing 6th at freaking worlds!

    This right here just tells me that there's no reason whatsoever to get invested in American pairs. Even when they do well, they split. I'm freaking done!

    Why on earth??

    From the article, it sounds as if it may have been his decision. But what a strange decision to make NOW, after such a successful season!

    John retired and she will search for a new partner.

    I'm sorry to hear that; they were doing so well!

    The article says she's planning to find a new partner - I wonder how the heights would work with Bryce Davison?

    I remember reading that discussion about John and Caydee and thinking that it doesn't make any sense. It's probably true now, let's wait and see..

    I hope it's no true, I don't think Caydee is as good as Yankowskas.

    If it does turn out true, John is highly stupid.

    When I first saw this, I thought it was a late April Fool's joke. :(

    It sounds like John may be ready to hang up his skates. He's been through a lot the past year or two. Whatever happens, I wish both of them the best.

    I don't see John with Caydee. I wonder if Caitlin will re-team with Daniyel Cohen.

    I wonder if Rockne is kicking himself for not waiting a little longer to find a partner. not that I think Caitlyn would be a great fit for him, but he wouldn't look like her dad.

    ITA. This would be a very strange decision if true.
