    Eteri Tutberidze Method

    Eteri does a great job with her skaters, but there are definitely some concerns about her methods. That said, to compare her to Larry Nasser is distasteful and also disrespectful to those he abused.

    Medvedeva leaves Orser for Tutberidze

    Well, I for one am happy for Evgenia. She’s been through a lot. She’s grown and developed independence and obviously feels like there is something that she still needs to achieve. I’m as surprised as anyone though as it was only a few days ago that we saw her skate with Brian watching via...

    ISU to evaluate feasibility of 2020-21 skating season

    While it’s not an every session thing, elite skaters use masks to build lung capacity. When events are held in high altitude rinks like Salt Lake City and Colorado Springs, it’s not uncommon for skaters in low altitude rinks to use masks for 2-3 weeks before they leave to compete. The idea being...

    Ekaterina Alexandrovskaya passed away

    If it’s true, because I’m hoping against hope that it isn’t, it’s tragic. Sending love to her family.

    Cipres/FFSG Press Release on the situation 12-16-2019

    I haven’t said ‘but’ in what you have quoted. I was originally saying was it a FACT that he KNEW she was 13. I was asking if he knew, who he was texting at all. Since then someone linked me to an article saying it was Instagram. I’m not as familiar with this. So I agreed, if he knew the photo...

    Cipres/FFSG Press Release on the situation 12-16-2019

    Please see my previous reply to another poster. I am not defending Morgan. I’m saying this should be investigated properly, not by the French Fed, but by law enforcement, to make sure ALL the facts are found. I’m fighting against what you are accusing me of, people believing all of the...

    Cipres/FFSG Press Release on the situation 12-16-2019

    Firstly, sorry if I misunderstood your previous post. I agree with you. Sending the photos was definitely wrong. I’m not defending that. What I was questioning was that this doesn’t mean Morgan is a sexual predator who was grooming the girl for sex. What he has done, in sending the photo to a...

    Cipres/FFSG Press Release on the situation 12-16-2019

    It’s a real shame that her parents hadn’t also supported this girl with her complaint. It took outsiders to force the issue and make the complaint. Thanks for posting the link to the article with Vinny’s name. That’s the thing though, we’ve heard the name, yet little else. He’s treated as a...

    Cipres/FFSG Press Release on the situation 12-16-2019

    Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think that there’s a reason to defend Morgan, I just think that we are not in possession of all the facts. I sincerely hope that there will be a full investigation to bring all the facts to light and yes, a fair penalty applied. What I don’t agree with is finding him...

    Cipres/FFSG Press Release on the situation 12-16-2019

    I totally agree that this is wrong. But if it was a request via text, unless the girl’s number was in his phone, he’s just responding to an anonymous text. Stupid, very, very, stupid, but not necessarily something he did knowing her age. If it was just a response to a text it could have been a...

    Cipres/FFSG Press Release on the situation 12-16-2019

    I’m sorry to hear that this happened to you. It does happen and I totally agree that this is wrong. I also totally agree that sending a photo of your genitalia to a minor is wrong. I was also abused, by a stranger when I was 8. I do see shades of grey though. Not to excuse what has happened...

    Cipres/FFSG Press Release on the situation 12-16-2019

    Actually, yes. I think there’s some definite questions to still be answered here. Remember this wasn’t a case of sending unsolicited photos. The photo was requested. The request came after a dare, from another coach no less. I’d still really like to know more about the circumstances behind all...

    USFS announces Alysa Liu's coaching change to Barkell & Nichol in Toronto and Massimo Scali in Oakland, CA

    Firstly, I haven’t and won’t be reading or listening to anything put out by Dave on TSL. But here’s my take on it. US Figure Skating has been watching and guiding Alyssa very closely for a long time. I don’t remember where I read it, but I think they sent her to Junior Worlds, before she was...
