    What level did he take it to? I don't see anything new in this article. Except that Kim apparently won Worlds this year.
    My job requires me to be a juggler, but that does not mean that I enjoy working with clowns.

    Is it true that Mao is interested in Orser? I would be if I were Mao.

    And if Orser was paid as little as posted on the previous thread, regardless of his other sources of income, I can understand this particular source of rancor. Aren't these things usually about ?

    This is starting to get very interesting.

    The question still remains the same though -- WHY?

    P.S. I she still training at the Cricket Club, that must be horribly awkward. And, does anyone have a link to her twitter?

    I only see an additional level of diplomatic candor, class and honesty from Brian. Young people sometimes make decisions or go along with decisions they later regret. This may be one of them.

    Brian should have issued one statement and then stopped there. He's not helping anybody by continuing to talk about this subject publicly.

    Another level? Did he take an elevator somewhere?

    I'm with ebayj on this one.

    I don't see why he shouldn't talk to people who ask him questions. It's not like he's done anything wrong. except maybe be Canadian

    I agree. By keeping it in the spotlight, even when he's trying to make good, he's only making it worse.

    I was surprised that it took so long for someone to make a new thread though.

    I agree with ebayj and Really as well. Brian had to make a statement of some kind, he was accused of being a liar afterall.

    I don't get the last part. Does that mean he will block Yuna from hiring other coaches and custom designers from her old team?


    “She’ll be fine. I know she’ll be fine,” he said. “I know that they will grow from this and maybe they’ll learn something from this, because coaches are people and costume designers are people and you have to be kind of prepared to make changes.

    “I’m not the only one to be let go from this camp and I won’t be the last.”

    Is it just me that Orser's way immature for his age?
    I am now very interested in psychiatric aspects of the series of Orser's actions and comments so far....

    I disagree. It's barely 24 hours since the news first broke out. The major news outlet in Canada would likely write the story for today or tomorrow, not yesterday.

    Brian is merely answering questions asked to him, in a honest and thoughtful way, IMO.

    You'd think So You Think You Can Dance Canada was interrupted by a press conference held by Brian or something.

    Couldn't agree more. Loved what he had to say. IMO he is handling this with grace and dignity. Something, frankly, I would have expected from Yu-Na. I am greatly disappointed in her....but I do understand that it could well be that she is doing what many kids do.....protecting and siding with her mother.

    I sure wish her well. And, I never saw this coming. What a shock.
    DH - and that's just my opinion

    What's wrong with what Brian said in this interview? He continues to act with the utmost class, IMO.

    He's 100 percent correct when he says Yu-Na will be fine. She will be -- she's a strong person.

    I think that, in tone, he didn't take it to another level. But, he did point out that Yuna could not have known what her mother said -- or did not say -- to Brian because she wasn't there. And then he tried to explain it from her perspective that she is trying to protect her mother.

    Here's the thing, if you accuse someone of lying, it is going to inflame the situation and create questions. The person accused of lying is not going to stay silent, even if they do try to respond in a relatively tactful way, which I think Brian did.

    In addition, as long as Kim or her team continue to give conflicting stories -- like first saying that Brian was the one who ended things and then saying that they (and then just Yuna) made the decison -- and as long as they refuse to say what the reasons were for Brian's firing (now that they seem to be admitting that it was their, er, Yuna's, decision), there are going to be questions and this story is not going to go away. If they don't give an explanation and they don't deny that they failed to inform Brian about some pretty important decisions, they continue to look bad. And there's no way anyone is going to really believe that this was Yuna's decision if another Korean skater is being pulled from Brian's team, too.

    It may be that Yuna is very non-confrontational and therefore did not want to tell Brian that they were going to go a different route, much less why. I believe Brian when he says that Yuna didn't explain things when he talked to her, but she may not have been confused. She may just not have wanted to deliver the news to him or explain things to him. But, she really should have.

    She really does need a new PR team. Like I said before, I doubt that she has really said the statements attributed to her. But, whoever is writing those statements is doing a bad job. She does not come across as respectful or honest and forthcoming (and also seems a bit gutless).

    Huh? I don't see that at all. It just sounds like he is saying that he is not the only person to be fired by Team Yuna.
