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

    No they are not. Gordie's last name is Zimermann with two N's. Funnily enough, there are quite a few unrelated Zimmerman's and Zimmermann's affiliated with that rink

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

    Regarding Mark Ladwig's comment, the entire context of that quote was that incidental touch was not an invitation for off-ice sexual contact. Something along the lines of "Accidental intimate touch on the ice does not equate to consent for intimate touch off the ice." I personally have issues...

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

    maxb - I can't put into words how much respect & admiration I have towards you after reading this. I have read some of your comments on other social media sites when this first came out & the fact that you changed your stance after hearing more information is so refreshing - thank you. The way...

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

    While I'm disappointed by the FFSG's response, I'm not surprised. I'm also incredibly annoyed by some of their statements: 1. The allegations were reported to the police, the Florida Department Children and Families and the U.S. Center for SafeSport. 2. They never say Christine Brennan's...

    Cipres accused of sexual misconduct

    I finally found a bit of time to read through this thread and I want to make something very clear: 1.The USA Today article only published the parts of the allegations that could be corroborated by thoroughly vetted digital evidence. There is so much more to the story - so please keep that in...

    Ashley Wagner reveals she was assaulted by John Coughlin

    GM was not banned because of one 50 year old accusation. Sarah Nir will be releasing the full NYTimes report soon. I'm all for expressing your opinion but I suggest waiting until you hear the whole story before presenting those opinions as facts. @another sk8rmom I grew up in Newark and knew...

    Ashley Wagner reveals she was assaulted by John Coughlin

    I was referring to the post about investigative journalism. I personally find the number of mistakes that the USFS has made in handling this entire case exceptionally alarming. They were coached by Jeff DiGregorio at UDel

    Ashley Wagner reveals she was assaulted by John Coughlin

    Things are happening behind the scene. You are correct @insideedgeua - the hats were not originally Dalilah's idea. However, I agree with @CaliSteve. More over, the skaters who expressed discomfort did not feel pressured to wear those hats by that skating parent. They felt pressured by their...

    Ashley Wagner reveals she was assaulted by John Coughlin

    I can confirm that some of the skaters did not want to wear the KC hats. The power dynamics and culture of skating play a huge role in that situation (i.e. a coach & sports agent handing out the hats, on camera, to skaters in the Kiss&Cry).

    Ashley Wagner reveals she was assaulted by John Coughlin

    This is one of the points that breaks my heart. If the USFS or certain coaches had intervened earlier (I'm talking about as early as 2004-05), I honestly believe that so many survivors could have been spared. I also think that it's very telling that people who publicly mourned John failed to...

    Ashley Wagner reveals she was assaulted by John Coughlin

    Unfortunately, you're right. Ashley's story is eerily similar to the experiences of other survivors of John Coughlin (sadly, he "allegedly" didn't always listen when the girls woke up/told him to stop). I'm so grateful for Ashley's courage and bravery. I can only imagine how hard it must have...

    JoJo Gomez, Choreographer, Accuses Daniil Gleikhengauz of Stealing Her Work

    I really am not following your line of thinking. He copied another choreographer's work without permission and didn't credit her. When he was informed about his actions by fans, he could have reached out to Jojo and explained the situation. Instead, he deleted the comments and blocked the...

    JoJo Gomez, Choreographer, Accuses Daniil Gleikhengauz of Stealing Her Work

    Daniil deleted Instagram comments about the similarities between Alina's program and Jojo's choreography & blocked the posters at least a couple of hours before Jojo commented on his post and got directly involved. Why didn't he respond to the comments? Why didn't he (immediately) DM Jojo...
