Well according to latest Ciquanta interview he doesnt seem too negative and according to their rules, their decision is reversible, I dont know what Plush team will do, but if nothing else $peedy is interested in $ as well and Plushenko brings them that.
Cinquanta: I can not say how long will last Plushenko's suspension from competition
Term of suspension from participation in competitions under the auspices of the International Skating Union (ISU), the Russian figure skater, Olympic champion 2006, silver medalist of 2002 and 2010 Games, Evgeni Plushenko's - not determined. This to the agency "All Sport" said ISU President Ottavio Cinquanta.
"Case of Evgeni Plushenko is very delicate" - noticed Cinquanta. - "Mr. Plushenko is one of the best skaters of our time. It is an indisputable fact! I personally have great respect for him as an athlete. But everyone, even and the most outstanding athlete, coach or manager, must respect and abide by the rules of the international federation, under whose jurisdiction it is located. Terms of ISU, which violated Mr. Plushenko, compiled with the participation of Figure Skating Federation of Russia. Then Figure Skating Federation of Russia, as a member of the ISU, adopted and pledged to abide by these rules, vote for them in Congress ISU. These rules must be respected and followed and the president of ISU, and national federations, and all the athletes and coaches. Mr. Plushenko these rules are violated.
And, at the moment, only what can I say - Mr. Plushenko is suspended from participation in competitions under the auspices of the ISU.
I can not assume how long will last this suspension. It depends, primarily, of action which take, or not take, personally Mr. Plushenko, and Figure Skating Federation of Russia. Although I do not know for any of their actions."
Plushenko is too busy doing shows in Asia.

At least, Japan Open is OK regardless of his eligibility.
I do not understand well the topic.
Plushenko lost his eligibility.
For to return he has two options.
- to appeal the decision of the ISU.
- or to give by valid the decision of the ISU and to request again the eligibility.
The decision to appeal already is not possible because he was 3 weeks old from the moment they notified officially the decision of to him.
but he has even the second option. no??
Sorry I don't have english version.
same news, another article
Plushenko will ask ISU to cancel decision about the disqualification
Evgeni Plushenko will not appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne at the ISU decision on the disqualification. To "BaltInfo" this said coach of skater Alexei Mishin, located at the moment in Germany.
"Evgeni Plushenko and his team decided not to enter into conflict with the International Skating Union" - said by phone Alexei Mishin. - "However, Evgeni will not sit idly. He will address to ISU with request to restore his right to participate in international competitions."
Mr Plushenko will likely be reinstated, and this is just a motion they are going through. Since when was a guy like Plushenko completely banned and had no chance for returning let alone with the looming Sochi? The ISU rules have been extremely flexible and adaptable to the extent that all these guys have to do is to issue another communication. LOL
So what are the odds of Mr Plushenko not showing up at Sochi? I would say ZERO.

I would say pretty high. His body is not going to last forever.
So the ISU - if they reverse their decision - show that their rules are not really to be followed? And their decisions are arbitrary and not binding?
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. Plato
