    From the article, overedge posted:

    Plushenko has taken part in three Olympic Games. The one is Sochi will be the fourth and the last in his sport career. However, he did not exclude his new return theoretically. “Technical progress advances constantly. What if nano-falciform cartilages are invented and I will be able to get new abdominal rings? If that happens, I will continue competing further,” Plushenko said, jokingly or seriously.

    He hasn't DEMANDED anything. But he is right. Kovtun hasn't shown anything to convince us that under pressure - under Olympic pressure - he will be any good.

    But of course this is FSU so Plushy is the evil devil and everything he does and says is wrong, evil and arrogant.

    f Plushenko wanted to prove he's better then the kid he shouldn't have said he wasn't going to go to Europeans. If his body can't stand the strain of competing then he needs to just go away. But i bet he knows that Kovtun would beat him again and his ego can't stand that.

    "I just want to remind those who question my right to compete at Sochi"
    Saying he has a "right" to compete in the Olys when he couldn't even finish both parts of the competition at Russian nationals, and has no plans to go to Euros, seems pretty arrogant to me. And I would say that of any skater who expressed those attitudes, not just Plushy.

    Article is a joke, is there a bet in the media How many titles for a Plushenko article can come out until Sochi? Why dont they make a Rebus with his name?

    Ok, say you prove that Kovtun hasn't shown us anything to convince us that he could compete against the pressure in Sochi. What then has Plushenko done to show that he is the best choice for the Olympics next month? Anything that happened this season to convince us?

    I think the fear is not Kovtun is superior but he will do mostly doubles again! That means he would be beaten by Kovtun but also probably 10 or more others as well! He can't just have this plan of doing no competitions and just saying he's training and look better than Kovtun who is probably going to win Euros. Fernandez could win Euros too but 90% likely Kovtun wins. Whatever caused Plushenko do to mostly doubles in Russian nationals free skate had to addressed and then Plushenko had to do Euros to show he's not a severe doubler now.

    His best evidence is Volvo but Volvo did not convince the Russian Federation that Plushenko was superior to Kovtun who did 2 GPs and GPF all with multiple quads. Russian Fed agreed to cut Plushenko from Euros which was him being dumped!

    I think we may have a brand new knee whacking in the coming days. Tonya better do something quick to get in the news or she will be forgotten forever!

    I doubt Tonya has anything else to do this week. Maybe she does freelance knee whacking contracts?

    Good grief, I never thought I'd ever agree with you, but I do. Time for Plushy to put up or shut up and graciously be an ambassador at the Olympics in lieu of skating.

    Well, the article is translated, right? Could it have been one of those words that doesn't have an exact English equivalent?

    And what has Plushenko shown? Kovtun beat him fair and square at Nationals, and had a good international season. Yes, Plushenko has had an amazing career, but right now, he hasn't made a case that he's any better than Kovtun. Maybe if he planned to go to Euros and delivered there, but clearly that's not the situation.

    People are really eating this crap up aren't they

    Any 'news' organization can pretty much say what they want no matter if Plushenko said it or not and :
