    I just want to see Bryce continue skating so that would be amazing. Did they (being D&D) compete this season at all? I don't think they have so he could start competing with Yankowskas pretty quickly internationally. Thankfully, citizenship won't be an issue.

    Jeez. There is a legitimate chance M/B will be the top American Pair next year if certain things fall into place. I really like them, but right now that would be

    if this is true (and i refuse to believe it until sylvia confirms it) we should pity the poor person who thinks it is a good idea and try to get him a psych consult. retirement makes sense, this not so much.
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    ^ This. Exactly.
    In my spare time, I like to interview figure skating legends.

    While I appreciate the attitudes of people who like this team, the fact is that this is a business and it is time to seperate business from what makes people happy. I am sad for Caitlyn, however, as there are few US men around, and she will never get a release to skate with a Canadian.
    Ah, gotta love gossiping skating moms who bash kids from their rink on a message board. Is it jealousy? Parents with too much time on their hands?

    Also, why is the girl always the one that's getting bashed? While I'm sure every skater has their "diva moments", I doubt the guys are all perfect angels and a pleasure to work with on a daily basis. Part of being a team is being able to work through those rough days when there are arguments, tension, etc. You can't skate with someone every day and expect things to always be smooth sailing.

    She's listed at 5'3" on Icenetwork and slightly over 5'2" on the ISU bio.

    If Caydee is really that rich and is buying herself a partner, why John? No offence to John, but there are quite a few available talented male pairs skaters--more talented than John, IMO, but their availability is even bigger. And if availability is not an issue for Ms. Richie Rich, then why not go after someone really good like Trankov or HeZhang?

    Given her profile (and despite all the negative posts herein), I'm sure there must have been someone who would've wanted to partner with Caydee regardless of the financial state of her parents.

    I think Cody Hay would make an excellent partner for Yankowskas.

    I can only hope Yankowskas finds a partner in the USA, otherwise, it would be a tremendous loss to US figure skating.

    I find the idea that John would dump Caitlin for Caydee really hard to believe. One of the things that really hurt D&B is their lack of chemistry and their "look" as a pair. Not to bash on Caydee who is obviously tremendously driven and talented, but at least visually, Caitlin fit John to a T. Her line, carriage and presentation ability was the perfect compliment to John's more athletic presentation. These are things that Caydee simply lacks. There is more to the makeup of a team than the ability of both partners to jump.

    If John has decided to move on with his life, then I respect his decision and wish him luck. If the rumors are true and he has decided to pair with Caydee, then

    Someone get Caitlin some tryouts ASAP!

    So when your daughter is dumped because she got to fat or someone realizes that she will never be able to jump don't be upset....IT'S BUSINESS.

    I was wondering kind of the same thing. Especially because I love Y/C.

    What does Caydee's family do, exactly, that makes her so rich? Her dad was an artistic roller skater (which isn't exactly a "money sport")...must be a family thing.

    How tall is Taylor Toth? I don't know much about his pair skills, but him and Caitlin would be a pretty couple.

    I was thinking the same thing. But is he still involved in the sport? From the C&O retirement article :
    Okolski will attend Washtenaw Community College and is considering a major in accounting.

    “I’m looking forward to going back to school as well as continuing coaching,” Okolski said. “I hope to pass on what we’ve learned throughout our competitive career.”
    Caitlin & Bryce would be great

    If this is true, then I would be shocked.

    I don't get it... If John can't stand Caitlin and her diva attitude, then why did he wait four years to leave her?

    Especially after one of the highest placements at the World's Championships for an American pair team in years. That makes total business sense.
    Those who never succeed themselves are always the first to tell you how.

    I wonder if Caitlin knew BEFORE worlds that John was leaving her?
