    Plushenko will skate in ISU competition on October 2nd, 2010

    They say it does not mean his ineligibility is not valid anymore. But you know how to read between the lines. He will skate in ISU competition Japan Open on October 2nd for team Europe together with Lepisto, Meier and Brezina. Just a little more than a week pasted after his time for appeal was over and technically he became ineligible. And now ISU gives him a green light. Not bad for a start. I am sure he will be fine.

    GO!!!

    It's my understanding that each team includes three eligible skaters plus one ineligible skater. Seems like Plushenko is filling the latter role.

    Good question. That's weird. I coulda sworn I read something that said every team had 3+1. . . not that I can actually find anything in English right now. <shrug>

    Buttle is the ineligible skater for Team NA.
    My job requires me to be a juggler, but that does not mean that I enjoy working with clowns.

    This story about Plushenko's ineligibility has become way too confusing. JO is an event for both eligible and ineligible skaters (like Jeff Buttle and Yagudin) so he can compete as ineligible. But considering some things that he said in interviews I think that they will apply for reinstatement very soon.

    I personally think that Plushenko had better not participate in the Japan Open this year if he does wish to compete on home ice in 2014. He can only skate in Japan in the capacity of a professional for the time being, which will very likely disqualify him from competing at the ISU events in the following years on a permanent basis.

    Didnt' realize Plushy got his own smiley

    I see Sasha, Irina and Shizuka get them as well among others. I think Johnny and Stephane should get their own smiley's too.

    Anyway, I'm way off topic. I was just surprised to open the thread and see a Plushy smiley.

    From where comes this very likely???ISU rule?ISU has a list of reasons for becoming ineligible, JO is sactioned event. And there is no professional term in ISU com., a skater is either eligible or ineligible, and Plush is already ineligible. All they can do is cut his mullet.

    Take it easy, .It is only my personal judgment. I see no point of getting so upset about it...

    Senorita is right, I can't understand why his rumour appeared. Is there any rule which says that an iligible skater can't reinstate his eligibility if he competes as a pro?

    My personal judgment is based on the blog of a certain foreign expert on figure skating: that is, Plushenko had better not take risks under the current circumstances. What rumor? I have no idea what you are driving at. To be truthful, I am not at all interested in this show!
