    What a ridiculous topic. Private companies can do whatever the heck they want. You are welcome to not buy their product or use their services if it bothers you so much. Why do you have a problem with whom SOI has on tour? Do you think they can fit every single National level skater on the program? What about from every country around the globe, why should they be left out? If Flexjet wants to fly Evan around for free, who cares. Are you jealous, mad that you have to pay? Well, when your name gets them publicity then I am sure you will get free flights, too.

    I think a private business like SOI should be able to invite whomever they want to tour, same as sponsors they should choose who they feel best represents what they want in a product - because in reality when you are sponsored your like their product so they can choose, who/when and where. Moreover, I don't think any NSO or any government funded body should be involved. Fair enough if we are talking about public funds or sport athlete funds - they should be equal, fair and transparent.. but sponsors are a whole different ball game - if you don't like how they treat your favourite athlete - don't buy their product or use their services.. money talks

    Weir wasn't the only Oympian not invited to tour with SOI. It's been said a couple times now, but isn't true.

    Weir was the only singles skater not to be invited to do at least guest spots on Stars on Ice.

    At this point, is Samuelson/Bates the only team not to have been added to the tour as a guest? (Did Denney/Barrett get any of the shows in their area?)

    Since Johnny wouldn't skate with SOI if they asked, does it really matter?

    Samuelson and Bates, OTOH, of a petition. BlueRidge, how could you let this happen?

    Actually, it's Inoue/Baldwin who's robbed of SOI, but since they're obviously not gay, no one thinks discrimination. That's worth the in itself!

    S&B did get asked to tour. They'll be doing guest spots starting today.

    Exactly. And since DWTS is nothing as good as his show, why should he care they asked that other person?

    Oh, and he's got a book deal. And a hat.

    Actually, John is a big homo and the marriage is fake. It was just so Rena could get citizenship.

    I read it in the National Enquirer so it must be true!

    I believe both of the men the OP wants the USFSA to "take charge of" are over legal age? Perhaps we should just let them run thier lives and quit expecting "big brother" to do it for them.

    And besides if it weren't for "sniping" the USFSA would have NO publicity. Remember this an organization who got RICH off the "whack in Detroit" Publicity is publicity!

    I didn't have one at my disposal! Yet Evan did! Is that fair? The USFS must step in!

    Didn't you know Evan was loaning the jet to Johnny so his hat could make it to Louisville on time for the Derby? There are priorities afterall.
