    OMG! Finally Shpilband/Zoueva deliver some drama.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    Thought it was April Fool's misplaced by a couple of months, until I saw Jo-Ann Barnas wrote it...

    Shoking!!

    But I am sure some FSU insiders will tell us more about it. This news might explain some of Virtue/Moir's reactions in the kiss n' cry this year...

    In this article, she certainly doesn't seem to be supporting him...a rift there?

    I doubt it, I can't see him working with Camerlengo & Krylova, nor do I think either party would be happy with another coach setting up camp at that club.

    The "why" doesn't really make sense to me?? Doesn't seem reason enough to fire him. Sounds like there's waaaayyyy more to this story. So, who stays and who goes? Where does Igor go? Is Colorado Springs still looking for a dance director??

    We don't need to watch soap operas when we have skating.

    I guess the question how many ice dance teams Canton can handle before it all collapses has been answered and that would be apparently two less. Who are the two new teams? Is it one of the Russian teams and the Italian team? Can´t remember what I've read.

    For real!

    The fact that it flat out states it was V&M, D&W, and the Shibs who wanted nothing more to do with him is

    So who were the teams that Shpilband wanted to take on himself? Riazanova and Tkachenko maybe? Weren't there some rumors that Capallini and Lanotte wanted to go to him?

    I'm actually kind of excited about this as Shpilband is a great tech coach, but Zueva kept coming up with all those FDs. Maybe now he can work with a better selection of choreographers while he teaches the tech stuff.
