Sorry guys, but Plush did it first!. They should add this to his Wikipedia page!
Are you still here?
I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.
This is the first: a Plush thread that I'm totally enjoying.
I believe it has been posted that the rule that Plushenko lost his eligibilty over allows for a request for reinstatement. Appealing to the CAS the original ISU decision was not considered the best course of action. If you lost the CAS appeal and made the ISU spend the money made it less likely that you could get eligibility back if you would go back and request it.
I think you are confusing two different things. He basically waived his right to appeal to the CAS the ISU's decision to make him ineligible. He still has a right to request reinstatement, just like any other ineligible person who hasn't violated the nonsanctioned competition rule.He is permitted to skate in the Japan Open as a non-eligible, but he can't reinstate. There was a window of opportunity for him to appeal, and he did not.
I would think the ISU would be thrilled at Plushenko's participation in the Japan Open, as he helps sell tickets and make money for the sponsoring federation. The whole reason the ISU made these rules was to keep star skaters working for them even after their eligible careers.
And for the record, Jeff Buttle is still eligible to compete in ISU events. He has done nothing that would cause him to lose eligibility, even though he has retired from competition. Unlike Plushenko, he could, if he so desired, return to ISU competition. Not that I think he's going to do so, but someone further up the thread said he's ineligble.
You irony fails me, sorry, I said that articles including examiner say that he is forever banned and bash him for not making appeal in CaS, clearly they have not read the rules.
oh and I see you are one of them.but it's not just going to happen because he is Plushenko. If the ISU agrees to that, then they have to let all ineligibles have the opportunity to do the same. Why is that so difficult to understand?
www.ilovepuppies.com. This is FSU, and I'm as rude as they come.
But if you insist that Plushy still has an opportunity to be eligible, then please explain the rules for all of us... because I have seen nothing that would support what you keep insisting is true.
the rest here we have posted it and analysed it some months ago. Since you have still questions, ISU rule 103 paragraph 2, I guess you know google.For all of us...
2. A person who is or has been ineligible may apply for reinstatement as a Skater only if such person had not violated Rule 102, paragraph 2 (ii) and (iii).
