    That's a classy statement from Emily. She seems to be at a crossroad in what she wants to do I wish her the best.

    Emily is such a superb skater, I wish there was some male partner to match her up with here in the US. I wish her luck on whichever path she chooses, however!
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    I really hate reading this news and hope Emily finds a partner. Someone with her talent and beautiful lines should be skating. I still can't believe Evan dumped her. I always thought one day they would be on the world podium. But wherever she ends up, I hope she's happy.

    This. Emily has always been one of my favorite skaters of any discipline. Part of the reason for this is how classy she is.

    I wish them both the best.

    Wow, that is really thoughtful and mature. I'm sorry the partnership ended, but it seems to have been a very considered decision that was done with everyone's best interests taken into account.
    We live in an ageist society where everything is based on youth, but I hated being 18. I don't like teenagers any more now than I did then. I'm 49 now and there is no way that I'd go back to my teens and 20s - even if I knew what I know now, I don't want to go through all that again. I found it a very difficult time. - Buzz Osborne of the Melvins

    One of the BEST technicians in ice dance, her crisp & precise skating was and is a thing of beauty. All the best to you, Emily!!!!

    So sorry to see her out of competition AGAIN. . . I hope that she can soon find a partner worthy of her. She's still young!

    I hope she's able to find a way to stay in skating that fulfills her and is fun, whether it's coaching or competing. That was a very mature, classy post and I wish her and Todd all the best in the future.

    My favourite original dance from 2009 was Emily and Evan's Sailor and Showgirl MGM inspired routine to Let Yourself Go. So elegant.

    Sorry to see she is without a partner again, and not sure if she wants to find another one (from the sound of it). I wish her the best in whatever she decides to do next.

    She could move into writing like Jenny Kirk. Very articulate. I enjoyed her skating too and hope she can find another partner. But she obviously realises there are other opportunities too and I am sure will be successful in whatever she decides to pursue.

    I had been waiting anxiously for any info on them for the upcoming season. This was not the info I wanted to hear

    I wish her the very best in anything she chooses to do. Although I really hope she finds a talented new partner. She has soo much talent & needs to be competing.

    I was such a fan of her & Evan. He was a fool. Anyways...

    Heres hoping for a new partner soon!!
