    Exclamation Help draft Shawn Sawyer for Stars On Ice

    Attention Shawn Sawyer Fans!!

    Currently the Canadian Stars On Ice tour does not include Canada's new silver medalist Shawn Sawyer. The tour will not be the same without his energetic programs accompanied with his signature spins and flexibility. Oh you can't forget the backflips.

    So if you want to see Shawn perform in Stars On Ice we need to send a message to the folks at IMG. Let's do this Betty White style and "Draft Shawn Sawyer for Stars On Ice".

    Click the link below and then click like.
    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Draft-...79682292070534

    This page has no borders as stars on ice is an international tour as well. So fans from around the world come and show your support!!

    Does Shawn want to skate with SOI? Is there maybe a reason that he isn't included at this point? He has good relationships with Kurt and other SOI folks, I somehow doubt that he's being excluded because they don't think he's good enough or wouldn't be a good addition to the cast.

    I wondered this too. Maybe he wants to rest up after Worlds, or work on his spring training. Or maybe he has other shows in mind.

    IMG hasnt made an offer. He wants to be on the tour. They are bringing a lot of US skaters on the Canadian tour this year.

    Toller Cranston should write him a recomendation, I would rather see him than Patrick or Evan.

    Shawn is one of the best show skaters out there! They are foolish if they don't include him!

    Really? Like who?

    I'm wondering if CSOI is hoping for Chan which might not leave much room for Sawyer.

    In the advertisement for CSOI, Evan and Sasha were shown. So I am guessing they will be doing it.

    Sawyer is extremely expressive, unique and entertaining.

    They are very very silly not to include him.

    Wasn't Sawyer included in the cast last year at the very last minute, when Patrick Chan pulled out? Maybe the same will happen here?

    Is there a specific reason maybe why they included Evan this year and not yet inviting Sawyer after including him in the cast for the last 2 years (besides Evan being and Olympic Gold Medallist)? Was he not well recieved last year (I was only able to go to the 2009 show)?

    I wish there were more high profile skating tours that would offer Sawyer a chance. Japan's SOI cast is HUGE. Maybe he could go that route?

    IMG has a lot of skaters and other athletes. Maybe Sawyer should explore the possibility of finding another agent where he doesn't have to be up against all the others?

    Sawyer is a fantastic show skater. From his programs last year though, it looked like he was becomming another Michael Weiss and Scott Hamilton. While Michael and Scott are both great skaters, Sawyer has many more non jump element and should use his artistry more in shows. He is more than a skater with bendy spins and a backflip. He is not a gimmick (unless he chooses to be which is up to him). He instensity of movement where he puts his whole body into it is his own brand of style in my opinion.

    Anyway, I liked the page 3/4 days ago so here's hoping! Thanks for keeping the Shanw Sawyer love alive Ice King!

    Would love to see him as a guest skater in the US tour after Worlds , but I doubt that would happen.

    Not this year. For next year, though, Scott should sign Shawn, and Ryan Bradley ... would make the show much more entertaining (IMO)!

    I was unable to click the "like" button since I don't have a Facebook account. I would still love to see Shawn Sawyers at SOI, though.

    Just figured I would bump this for any who are interested.

    According to David Baden's Twitter, Mr. Sawyer will be on the Canadian Tour.

    "I have 12 reasons why people will like Shawn Sawyer. Stars on Ice Canada! He is on tour! Thanks for your tweets and support!"

    Yahoo for Shawn! He deserves it.
