    Wishful thinking, so if Russian federation appeals for him to be reinstated, What reasons will ISU say, that ISU president, Cinquanta doesn't like Plushenko. It is now about reversing their decision, it is about regaining the eligibility.

    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.

    June 5-6, Hyundai Card Super Match (Seoul)
    June 25-27, Dreams on Ice (Yokohama)
    July 10-11, Fantasy on Ice (Niigata)
    July 16-19, Prince Ice World (Tokyo)
    July 24-25, THE ICE (Aichi)
    Ausust 14-15, Prince Ice World (Okazaki, Aichi)
    Ausust 21-22, Prince Ice World (Hachinohe, Aomori)
    September 4, Artistry on Ice (Beijing)
    September 11-12, Fantasy on Ice (Fukui)
    October 2, Japan Open / Carnival on Ice (Saitama)

    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??

    But I don't think Evgeni is hurting for money. This is a topic rarely discussed, but Evgeni seems to have his fair share of endorsement deals. Though I don't know how much he is paid, as endorsement money may be scarce in Russia.

    I'm a longtime Plushy fan but I was totally unaware all this was going on with him.

    He is the 8th at Forbes Russia latest ratings(stars ratings not business). Not to mention his wife who has considerable incomes of her own.

    Just a small nitpick - he actually had 21 days to appeal according to the official ISU communication.

    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.

    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?

    Quite on the contrary. I don't think Pluschenko wants to compete all those 4 years until Olympics, because his body would not last that long. My guess is that he will reapply only for the Olympic year (same as he came back only for this year). So for ISU it will be proof that he has been punished enough (he would have been banned for 3 years after all) and Pluschenko will get what he wants. Everyone is happy!

    NO. They will follow the rules exactly that say they can reverse their decision in case I). If they reverse their decision is because the ISU rules have many bullets / categories concerning ineligibility and according to their published decision for Plushenko, his ineligibility falls in the category that can be reversable and skaters can aplly for reinstatement.
