    The Skating Lesson 2018/2019

    So people think Dave deserves death threats for something someone else posted? Once again, I'm not a huge fan of TSL and I feel that given the number of years he's been doing this, he's had time to better learn the responsibilities of running a platform like that HOWEVER: people were posting...

    The Skating Lesson 2018/2019

    I agree, I hope he reported the threats to the various social platforms and screenshot everything. I'm not a huge fan of TSL's content but no one deserves to receive threats.

    John Coughlin has died

    I hope you won't let certain members who can cram a lot of ignorance into their posts discourage you. People like to spout off about "political correctness" spawning this but the reality is, the #MeToo movement began as a response to some people in positions of power devaluing and dehumanizing...

    Coughlin's Safe Sport Status Changed to Interim Suspension

    Callaghan suspended over sexual abuse allegations

    @overedge: There's a separate SafeSport Handbook, which I added the link to above. Pages 9 to 11 of that handbook offer some guidelines on the definition of "sexualized behaviors." I'm really not sure why these are separate documents. Doesn't make any sense.

    Callaghan suspended over sexual abuse allegations

    Looked up the USFS Rulebook, available here: http://www.usfsa.org/content/2017-18 Rulebook.pdf From pages 17 to 19: Section 3 Grievance and Disciplinary Proceedings. All grievance and disciplinary procedures must be filed and resolved pursuant to the procedures outlined in this section and in...

    Callaghan suspended over sexual abuse allegations

    So, the US federations under investigation right now are USA Gymnastics, USA Swimming and USA Taekwondo. (Did I miss any?) From the comments above, I guess most people here think that USFS is trying to air their transgressions before Congress comes for them? You're likely right but I personally...

    Jeremy Abbott Uber Thread

    USFS just tweeted that Jeremy withdrew from 4CC. Hip injury. Dornbush going instead. I hope the injury does not force Jeremy from Worlds too. http://www.usfsa.org/Story.asp?id=47757&type=media
