    Not to mention that the IOC's TV revenues would drop as well, which the IOC will never allow to happen. Especially while $peedy is a member of the IOC executive committee.

    No matter whether Ted Wilson might be deemed crazy for his opinions, I think this quote from him may have wings:

    When OC [Cinquanta] leaves, he will go down in history as the person who destroyed a sport. Some legacy.

    As a fan of Jeremy Abbott, it'd be rockin' to see pigs fly in Sochi!

    Well, I don't think figure skating will ever be kicked out of Olympics.

    ^^ Alas, the IOC threatened to kick figure skating out of the Olympics post Salt Lake City pairs judging scandal, and so IJS/ CoP was born/ quickly forced into being.

    Are you threatening us aftershocks with a new and improved, more objective scoring method?

    Figure skating has survived Salt Lake City. It will survive again.

    No matter how it changes, the subjectivity in figure skating can never change. In fact, on one hand those people are unhappy with the subjective results. On the other hand, what they are wishing for is a change towards more subjectivity.

    If I remember well, somewhere in the '90s the IOC or perhaps the ISU threatened to kick figure skating out of the Olympics because of ice dancing, I can't remember if they meant just the ice dancing or all of it.

    More subjectivity is the main reason that figure skating might be possibly kicked out of Olympics though.
