    Nguyen & Kolesnik have ended their partnership

    If he decides to keep competing, I feel like Davis would be a no-go considering that she has a strong partner with Russian citizenship. While I think he & Khudaiberdiyeva would make a fantastic team, his lack of Russian citizenship may be an immediate deal-breaker considering that she already is...

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

    I want to preface what I say with a universal disclaimer: I completely understand that this is an internet forum and most people here don't know who I am IRL. Because of this, I am in no way offended if people don't believe what I'm saying - everyone has the right to their thoughts and opinions...

    From Russia With Love (#36) Spring into Summer 2020

    I know last year they had seven (same as the six this year plus Sofia). While she struggled with some inconsistencies last season, she did score 215+ at a JGP & had a great FS at senior nationals. I could see them deciding to name her to the team - even though I think it's more likely that she...

    From Russia With Love (#36) Spring into Summer 2020

    Ooh thank you for pointing that out - I completely forgot about the cherry blossom calendars! According to this, Tokyo's full bloom dates were from mid-March to early-April and the season ended on the 6th. Aomori's are from mid-April to early-May. It started on the 17th and is currently in full...

    From Russia With Love (#36) Spring into Summer 2020

    Here is a brief summary of what's been discussed on social media. The sources of the information is all coming from individual users on Twitter and from the 4/27 TAT interview - so the reliability is questionable. - A butcher tweeted that he saw Zhenya buying meat at Hasshoku Center in...

    2020-21 Canadian Pairs News & Updates

    It sounds like he was seriously considering retirement around 4CC. IMO that really should have been the time that he started to, at least, discuss his feelings with Liubov and his coaches. The fact that he started writing a press release before informing them is a problem. The fact that he only...

    Nathalie Péchalat

    These questions would probably hold more weight if a) he had served his sentence rather than lived as a wealthy, professionally successful fugitive for the past 43 years b) hadn't been accused of sexual assault by multiple women (Renate Langer, Marianne Barnard, Valentine Monnier, etc.) I...

    News and updates à la Française, part trois

    I don't think it was quickly taken down - it was part of an IG story (which only lasts for up to 24 hours). I first saw it ~8 hours after it was posted. My personal reservations with Pechalat are due to a myriad of reasons (I'm cross-posting my response to another thread below). While I'm sure...

    Nathalie Péchalat

    I can only speak for myself, but the following actions have led me to be less than optimistic about Péchalat's presidency: - She announced her campaign without informing the members of the "resistance group" (a group of former athletes, including Abitbol, Peizerat, Gusmeroli, Delobel...

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

    Nathalie reposted Morgan's endorsement of her in her IG story today. I don't think any of these people really understand the optics, TBH

    New Brennan Article re: Zimmerman/Fontana & the Rink in USA Today

    Fair enough. You have a right to express your thoughts & opinions and to post as you please - as do I.

    New Brennan Article re: Zimmerman/Fontana & the Rink in USA Today

    I'm assuming that it wasn't shared for a reason - I know that certain pieces of information are being shared upon approval by the family attorney so this may be one of them.

    New Brennan Article re: Zimmerman/Fontana & the Rink in USA Today

    I'm pretty sure that he's still coaching at the rink (along with John & Silvia). The "pizza story" makes a lot more sense in context. I'm not sure if the full story makes him look better or worse, per se, but it does make his motivations a bit more clear IMO. You have a great point. In this...

    New Brennan Article re: Zimmerman/Fontana & the Rink in USA Today

    Sadly, I think you may be giving them a bit too much credit @PRlady. As someone who's been closely following the case for ~9 months, the stupidity of the abuser & enablers is quite shocking. And I agree, @Vagabond. I think a lot of that comes from the fact that they were able to get away with...

    New Brennan Article re: Zimmerman/Fontana & the Rink in USA Today

    You're correct. An NGB is not allowed to do their own investigation or implement their own sanctions if SafeSport has taken on the case.
