Why do they have be so warlike? These are kids. Why does everything need airing in the press?

Madness. Period. A little class never hurt, did it?
Actually they give an interesting reason which I think SHOULD be aired:
`Zinina was expelled because she refused to follow the coach's instructions. Anastasia was injured and was not allowed to do jumps, however, the athlete did not listen to the coaches and her mom's opinion was more important for her. We do have a coaching team and our specialists are taking responsibility for her health. In the current situation we can not be held responsible for her health, hence it was decided to expel Zinina. In our sport there are more than enough cases when the athletes had to retire because of their decisions or their parents influence. In our academy it is not accepted.'

The other story making the rounds is she was disenchanted with his coaching style and taking instruction from another external coach which he knew nothing about, until he did and it was time to nip it in the bud. So I guess this generic reasoning will suffice. What's going on with Plushy?

Edit: More importantly what's up with Pavel Drozd?

Alena Kanysheva didn't adapt to ice dance ("Yes, I was never able to fall in love with dancing with all my heart, in order to give them all my energy and continue to skate. It was rather a forced measure, which she sincerely tried to accept. But it didn't work out." and is now happy coaching young children (her coaching group includes Maxim Marinin & Maxim Zavozin), according to this interview that was published today:
