    From USFS' press release: http://www.usfsa.org/Story.asp?id=49697&type=media
    (11/12/13) - Ross Miner, the reigning U.S. silver medalist, has withdrawn from 2013 Trophee Eric Bompard due to a right ankle sprain. The event will take place Nov. 15-17, in Paris.

    Miner, 22, is expected to resume training soon.

    It's a Miner injury....

    I agree. After the last few seasons when the GP was rather weak i was looking forward to a season with a full slate of the top skaters for the first time since 2009. Kim was coming back and with the younger girls rising it was going to be a great season. But it's sucked at times with all the withdrawals. Just look at TEB and how weak that event is Ashley might as well just show up and she'll win with the level of competition there. Of course even if Kim had been there it's ridiculous how weak it is.

    TEB has Sotnikova and Pogorilaya as well as Gao and Cesario. I've seen weaker fields.

    Heck, Balde and Rogozine should fly over with Chan and drop by the registration desk, maybe they can be walk-on entrants...

    "Ross Miner, the reigning U.S. silver medalist, has withdrawn from 2013 Trophee Eric Bompard due to a right ankle sprain. The event will take place Nov. 15-17, in Paris."

    I got a kick out of the phrasing - sounds like his ankle sprain is going to be a three day event in Paris...

    Ah I missed that. It would make sense indeed, then.

    So TEB has only 8 men now? Or was Chafik Besseghier replaced?

    Besseghier has not been replaced. He withdrew on 5 November, 9 days before the Team Leaders Meeting this Thursday, 14 November, which is in the undefined <14 and > 7 period. On the other hand, they replaced Popova/Massot, whose withdrawal appeared on the 7 November grid, 7 days before the TLM, with Prolss/Blommaert, when the ISU likely would have given them permission not to replace the Pair. Go figure.

    That was an amazing field. Sebestyen, Sokolova, Luca. <3

    On another note, screw the French fed for not replacing the Man and the Lady they've cut.

    French Fed. 'Nuff said.
    OTOH, it seems they are equal opportunity f&#%ers - they screw all skaters, not just their own...

    And I agree - late withdrawals with no replacements suck ...

    Sorry to see all the injuries & withdrawals this Olympic GP season, however I hold no animosity against any of the skaters nor their federations, et al, just hoping the withdrawals give another skater the opportunity to compete. And if that's not possible, so be it, nothing gained nor nothing lost. jmho.

    I just sincerely hope everybody is ready to go by the time Nationals gets here, and once that hoop is over, one last one to go, thee Olympics!

    ps: um, my fave Evgeni Plushenko also had to withdraw from his his GP, which I see hasn't been posted on here yet, as he has his own thread for his, lol the ups & downs of being a legend.

    Sylvia reported on this thread that Plushenko has withdraw from Rostelecom Cup. It hasn't been updated officially on any ISU documentation (RC roster or grid) yet.

    It's now eight days before the RC Team Leaders Meeting, just in the undefined period in which the Russian Fed can do whatever they want about replacements. Tomorrow, the ISU would allow them not to make a replacement. It would be ridiculous if they didn't replace Plushenko with 23-Menshov or 25-Voronov, especially if Kovtun was talking about this after CoC, and it was generally rumored, if not known.

    Russian Fed is slightly more sane than the French one.

    I am sure that either Menshov or Voronov are going to replace Plushenko.
