We called this quite a while back Makes for a dull press release when everyone knows the news!!!
Oh, well. Here's hoping for the best and for Caitlin Y to find a suitable partner.
Also, I can't understand it: Caitlin could land her 3S and 2A. What was the problem?
It's still so baffling. Why did M/T break up. Because he wanted to leave her and Vassilev. Why did V/M break up. He wanted to retire and he was not good enough. Y/C total mystery.
*barfs* disgusted John could leave such a beautiful and lovely skater who he seemed to have great rapport with for this unpolished clunky looking teenager.
I am hoping for 2 good teams to come out of this.
I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.
If Denney & Coughlin become a surprisingly good team and Caitlyn finds a partner that suits her even better than John and becomes a highly succesful team I wont mind so much. Right now it is not pleasing news though, although not surprising. Like others have said Caydee hasnt improved one iota since 2009.
I'm sorry, I will never be able to root for this team. John Coughlin took out of contention (IMO) the finest female pair skater the US has had in years without a single explanation. I hope this is an Anissina/Volosozhar situation where Caitlin will find a new (better) partner quickly, and hopefully, stays within the US because she is a lovely skater.
Well.... good luck to Caydee and John.
I loved Y&C together, but can we see Denney & Coughlin compete at least once before declaring them the worst US pair evaaaah and predicting the Armageddon of US pairs skating?

^Trying to be positive here.
I think Caydee is catlike in her landings. This will help her land powerful throw 3 jumps and the triple twist with someone of John's size, and these might turn into awesome elements for her.
Both are decent to good SBS spinners and jumpers, too. Both have experience under their belts landing 3toes and 2x's at least, so perhaps they can build on upping the ante there.
However, any height John gives her on Lifts will be negated by her mediocre mid-air positions [oops. That was negative!].
And please, no death spirals with the a$$ in the air
No thank you.
John you idiot what were you thinking? You went from having a ballerina for a partner to someone with all the grace of Rosie O' Donnell.
I really hope Caitlin pair up with someone else better and stronger. Will be looking closely for any announcement ...
Are Caydee and John dating? I can't think of any other reason why they'd be so intent on skating together. They're becoming the Leann Rimes/Eddie Cibrian of the skating world, unpopular and leaving two broken partnerships in their wake...
Good luck to this team. Not really of fan of their style of skating, but with the current state of US pair skating, I'm sure they will be very successful on the national stage.
Oh, well. Good luck to Caydee and John.
Not suprising but still vomit inducing. I hope Mark & Amanda return! Please!
Bah.. just bah.
