    - I didn't know that there are such commentators - still. Even if a commentator is not an expert (actually, especially then), they should at least look at protocols from time to time - it's all there. In my opinion, it's quite unprofessional that this commentator hasn't done that in all those years. I am not an expert in figure skating at all, but even I know things like this - mostly because I do look at protocols.

    The same happened to Dick Button. He was so much better before he ran the Professional World Championships and had an inherent conflict-of-interest in who from the eligible ranks might feed into his, self-selected event. Then he became unbearable after the fall, with the rambling.

    Apparently Florent Amodio has new programs (at least, so says his FB fan page). There was no specific information given, but just about anything is bound to be an improvement over what he was doing, right?

    Worse than he was doing is hardly imaginable, so yes, I think we will see an improvement. Good news.

    Moving the discussion from the Russian skating thread here.

    After the very disappointing last season, Carron/Jones have apparently jumped ship and left Linichuk & Karponosov and moved to the UK.

    Where they train and who is the coach?

    I think there's only Marika Humphreys Baranov coaching there, but I am not sure at all.
    Maybe a UK poster could tell us.

    As I mentioned in the Russia thread, John Dunn has moved back to England.
    Joan Slater probably has retired, at least I don't remember seeing her in the past few seasons.
    There is also Marika Humphrey's former partner Philip Askew coaching.

    Liz Coates is also coaching in the UK.

    I've not heard anything about C/J at the rink where Liz Coates and John Dunn coach though.

    So to sum up the French skaters' off-season so far, Gwendolyn Didier is now skating for Serbia, C/J have moved to a mystery coach in the UK, Amodio is shooting a movie and Joubert is doing a TV show (Fort Boyard again) and an Averbukh show (in Astana), and P/B will have a Rolling Stones FD. Have I missed anything?

    He is also in a tv show called "Brisons la glace" (you can see bloopers here) where he plays a character named Mike.

    Joan Slater has definitely not retired I saw her coaching on the ice a couple of weeks ago.
