    Papadakis/Cizeron #9 - People Will See Them And Cry

    I still hope they find another piece of music for the first part or simply change the RD. It's good but they are capable of something better. My favourite dances dances using this rhythm remain V/M and I/K from 2014. Honorable mention this year to S/D and FB/S they get the vibe, they do not...

    The aftermath of DG's resignation - what next for the FFSG?

    Just ensure that the Russians don't mine gold in ice dance, what else is there? Pairs zilch, men mild entertainment, women no serious contenders. Nathalie has a very steep learning curve in a pretty short time. Gab and Gui have to be like flint. Nuff said.

    Retired ice dancer Betina Popova on the toxic side of figure skating

    Nothing new in all said here. I just wished she had a healthier outlet or simply had the strength to step away. This is a male dominated sport with very exacting expectations so if you don't have a certain genetic form and all the pills and diets simply are not working I wish they'd just spare...

    ISU to evaluate feasibility of 2020-21 skating season

    What for? The risk of contagion increases if there is not strict quarantine and many will not be able to come. They will be padding the credentials of their own skaters due to their wealth and incurring ill will in others. In bad taste IMHO, let them have their local competitions and...

    ISU to evaluate feasibility of 2020-21 skating season

    I have come to realize that denial is a real part of the grieving process. We are grieving the loss of our lives, figure skating is the least right now. I am not being facetious here. Many struggle with the current realities and just cannot see what many others see as clear cut. Many in...

    My point exactly. All of this is just posturing.

    What sense does that make when the playing field is so uneven...they do realize the value of equity with respect to team spirit right?

    As long as they don't get sick along the way. This is a time to gently improve and work at your leisure since there's no pressure to compete. Silver lining maybe?

    Which beloved or highly regarded skaters do you personally NOT love or highly regard??

    I found they have improved drastically in the last two seasons. I never really bought into them with few exceptions but all in all, the talent pool in ice dance right now doesn't inspire me much.

    It is somewhat disturbing how much information is seemingly known about Medvedeva and why it would be even interesting in the first place. Gulp.

    Nguyen & Kolesnik have ended their partnership

    Nadiia's partner is quite fine for her capabilities. She'd be a mismatch for him. He needs some one much stronger to make it interesting. Why did they break up?

    Nguyen & Kolesnik have ended their partnership

    Davis already has a good partner. He would never go near the second.

    Nguyen & Kolesnik have ended their partnership

    Oh yes. She needs an upgrade no offence to current partner. But now is just not the time. If he's interested there is time. Right now it's time to grieve.
