    I think we all made a mistake in reading the first post & then responding to it. Don't feed the trolls .

    BTW, who are the men who retire after Sochi? Pluschenko, Verner... Joubert? Takahashi?
    Probably Chan (99% sure).

    haha, yes! You didn't respond by saying "I won't read any articles because I just KNOW he's never leaving Morozov for good," though. Now you know how to troll better

    This hasn't been designated as a thread for ubers or a cheer thread, so I don't have an issue with Jiazumi expressing her opinion. I love Thomas and would love nothing more than to see him have a great season. But, he has had some bad skates over the years that problem were very embarrassing to him, given how talented he is.

    And even when he landed his jumps at Cup of Nice, he fell on the step sequence. It's very frustrating to see him so easily lose his focus given how skilled he is.

That, and Brian's strong personality.
    Add in he's not willing to move and Mama (Jou)Bear.

    Maybe Joubert could skate pairs with Maman? I don't know, he just doesn't seem physically large enough for pairs. Maybe dance?

    Although I've liked very little of his skating, I hope Joubert has a good ending to his eligible career.

    Now, Tomas, he'd really be a good ice dancer, I think.

    I'm not going to get into definitions of trolling, but I don't think anyone's first amendment rights are relevant to a non-American, privately owned forum.

    He's bigger than Szolkowy And much as I like Joubert, he certainly does not have the right skill set for ice dance.

    Verner will be going back to school, so other than maybe some galas here and there, I think he has other career goals post-Sochi.

    I'm so excited to see him finding his form. Such perfect timing. Wish him to have a big moment come Sochi.

    He should totally give Fumie some advice on life after competing

    Honestly, if Joubert had started in pairs like 8 years ago when he first said this, he might've been pretty good at it. Well, I'd still want him to be the 2007 singles champion, but it would've been interesting if he'd done some light pairs training while doing singles. Hell, even Jessica Dube did both at the same time. That could've been an easier way for him transition after Vancouver (he wuzrobbed of a medal in Nice though).

    I wish Tomas the best, but I'll just die if he finishes FORTH again, so I'm not going to get my hopes up too much.

    I've seen him a few times live. He's a charmer, and even more so off the ice. From what I heard, he won over a lot of female Chinese fans in the few times to CoC. He should do shows after retirement.

    Anyone know if he's still with Nathalie Pechalet off ice ? Nathalie/Fabian's last competition is definately olympics .
