    Not a true fan is an understatement. I think he actually does not like figure skating at all.

    I agree with everyone though figure skating and speed skating should be completely seperate. They are absolutely nothing alike. I dont even agree with long track and short track speed skating sharing a governing body with each other, let alone figure skating which is another planet apart entirely.
    I agree that figure skating and speed skating should be seperate but I don't think speed skating can survive without figure skating.

    Do the member federations get financial reports of the ISU? I went digging around for them but as expected, there is nothing publicly available. I just wondered if money is the real issue, if RSFS, USFSA, etc. would know the real skinny.
    What would Jenny do?

    That is speed skating's problem, not figure skating's, and figure skating shouldnt suffer for it. Figure skating and speed skating both deserve someone better than Cinquanta running it anyway. He has less to f up in speed skating than figure skating as the sports winners are decided by a clock, but given his cluelessness with marketing, advertising, creating a sensible season competition format, I am not surprised to hear speed skating is struggling even worse with him in charge.

    If the ISU is broke, it is only they spent a fortune in speed skating. For sport which has minimum fan base, he poured so much money into new competitions and development programs all around the world. ISU even gave away large incentive funds to develop the speed skating to member federations. Now they try to cash back the money by cutting down the budgets for figure skating competition.

    So what's next? If fans are opposed to this proposal, how can we make our views known? Should we write to our federations, write to the ISU, start a proposal, or all of the above??

    Ugh, is there a way for us to oust him before them? Maybe we can start a petition!

    Cinquanta attempted to ruin the reputation/standing of many of those who were part of the organization, or supported it.
    It's one of the many reasons why I can't stand him.

    Lynn Rutherford tweeted that Cinquanta is holding a press conference in a few hours.

    Next, he'll want to eliminate the LP, and there won't be anything left ... and he'll hope no one notices ... just like he hopes they don't notice all of his moronic comments.

    Who/What has given him so much power that he can destroy the sport single handedly? He must have the support of very powerful people.

    I wish he would retire before he further damages FS.

    Let's put Dick Button in charge, so that he can pick the six competitors and call it a "World Championships." Then the five strongest Feds can choose their teams for World Team Trophy, and everyone else can be "Team World."

    For figure skating's sake, it might be better if he does what he said.

    1. $peedy destroys FS.
    2. More people rebel against $peedy.
    3. US, Canada, European FS unions go against $peedy.
    4. This issue becomes serious internationally
    5. $peedy steps down or is impeached.
    6. Hopefully a better person will become the head of ISU
    7. Clean up $peedy's legacies and restore FS
    8. Everyone is happy
