RusNats wishes:
1. Kostornaia, Tuktamysheva, Medvedeva on the podium :shuffle: Gubanova in top-6, so she would make National team and get funding. Two redemption skates and two genial smiles from Stasia :)
2. SinKats over S/B. Don’t care a lot about #3 and #4 , but skating gods, pretty please, let it be not Morozov/Bagin.
3. Ignatov with at least bronze medal
4. Tarasova/Morozov for gold, Boikova/Kozlovskii for silver, Pavliuchenko/Khodykin for bronze.

JapanNats wishes:
1. Kihira, Miyahara, Sakomoto for Worlds, but hope that Wakaba will have two great skates and will get a chance to compete at 4CC.
2. Happy Shoma in K&C


Boss wishes:

:gallopin1-trio-deluxe on podium!
Kostornaia winning, non-3A's-podium, non-Med-podium, Aurora-Games-Stasia, surprise-Nugu
I need T/M win and P/K making the team, E/K and P/R Top6
I can't help wanting Morozov/Bagin in #3, just for the drama :watch:

Tomono making any Worlds
Marin making 4CC's at least.

My Russian wishes: every skater/team skates their personal best and the chips fall where they may. Japanese Dai wins.


Boss beat me to it! KÖTTING! He better show up... So many dissapointments....

BTW love our new thread title. Finally! And she got more weapons than ever these days.


For Russian Nationals... Did you notice Panfilova/Rylov will skate seniors!
I want Liza to land her quad/triple. I want Our Boy to make Euros team.

For Japanese nationals:
Shoma to be back in kick ass form! (I'm not holding my breath :( )
Dai to look stellar, in his last competition in singles.

#NotPolina also made the roster. :cheer2: I feared they wouldn't. Just skate well and medal in junior nationals and make the world team.


Is it your way to say that you want Large Caliber Weapon on the podium but are too afraid of jinxing her? :gallopin1 :saint:
Lalalalalala, no clue what you are talking about, lalalalalala.

#NotPolina also made the roster. :cheer2: I feared they wouldn't. Just skate well and medal in junior nationals and make the world team.
I like the little fierce girl so much and i love Ialin and that's exactly why I feel really bad wanting other teams making it more this season :(

For da bossman and everyone else who still has not learned, here is how we roll:

1) Skater needs a complete package to potentially be a top skater at Euros/4CC's/Worlds/Olympic level
2) Skater needs to have the ability to absolutely rock one day and splat the day after. Even better: rock and splat during one program
3) Skater is not afraid of breaking one's heart over and over again
4) Skater needs more splat/messy performances than great ones

1) Worlds/Olympic medalists and Euro/4CC's champions are not eligible
2) Multiple Euros/4CC's medal winners are not eligible
3) Membership and changes to the Rules and Qualities shall be decided by consensus among longstanding posters in the #TeamTrainwreck Threads, subject to points 1) and 2)
4) The pinky166 is not allowed to make more than one proposal a day
5) Proposals can be submitted in the #teamtrainwreck thread
6) New membership is granted only to current skaters
7) New membership is only granted to senior skaters (at least one international senior competition)
8) Membership can be cancelled due to points 1) and 2), numerous decent skates in a row or not being competitive on elite level anymore.

1) Being a student of Volchkova/Rukavicin
2) Big boobs/nice ass
3) Boobs/belly/nipples showing
4) Mule kick
5) Being Uzbek/Russian
6) last name called Schott
7) Bizarre off ice incidents
8) Coach
9) Costume (-Malfunction)
10) Splats
11) Bizarre Choreo
12) Hair

If I post in this thread, does that mean I'm on #TTW?

No, the skaters are the ones on the Team, not us. But you may aspire to joining the Fans' Auxiliary.

Who decides whether a skater's membership should be cancelled on grounds other than medalling or retirement?
Normally, the bossman, possibly with the advice of vice. But there's always a first time for everything.

Why is Alena Leonova on the List? She has a World Silver Medal.
There's a Perkova Rule, which is so obvious it doesn't need to be included in the Rules above, namely, a skater is on the Team if she (1) has only one World or Olympic Silver or Bronze Medal and no international gold medals, (2) has never won her home country's National Championship, and (3) is Perkova.

What about Liza Tuktamysheva and Yan Han?
The bossman has his delusions, and we humor him.

Do you have to be voidy to be on the Team?
No, but it helps. You do, however, have to be heartbreaking.

Is there an anti-American bias here?
Not at all. Several Americans are or have been on the team, e.g., Ross Miner, Mirai Nagasu, and Camden Pulkinen.

What is the Pantheon?
The Pantheon is something we cooked up here in the #TTW Press Office to promote those skaters who have retired. Each member of the Pantheon must embody in his or her own way the essence of Team Trainwreck as determined by the pressman.

How do I get on the Fans' Auxiliary?
Not by asking or campaigning for it.

Why isn't being French and hot one of the Qualities?
It's implicit in being French and hot that a skater has the listed Qualities in spades.

Sally Skater and Peter Partner fell on their side-by-side triple flips at last weekend's competition. Surely that makes them worthy of the Team.
In and of itself, falling once or even several times in one program does not warrant membership. Please reread the Criteria.

Why aren't skaters allowed on the Team before they skate Seniors at the international level?
We want to give them time to mature without putting too much pressure on them.

Why is this thread in The Trash Can, whereas From Russia with Love is in Great Skate Debate?
That's a good question.

Is there a King and Queen, or is everybody equal?
No, but we do have the bossman and vice.

Can someone clarify what this thread is for/about?

Russian Nationals:

1. Kostornaya, Shcherabakova and Medvedeva podium (more realistically, GPF podium order with Med 4th)
2. Liza lands the quad
3. Good skates/placements for Gubanova, Nugumanova and Sinitsyna
4. Our Boy keeps his head and makes Euros (preferably top 2 so he's got a good chance of Worlds too)
5. 3rd Euros spot (after Our Boy + Boss's boy) to Ignatov or Mozalev (I'm okay with Voronov too)
6. Don't really care between SinKats and Step/Bukin - I like both RDs and neither FD that much (S/B's FD is better though), but 3rd dance spot not to Morozov/Bagin
7. Mishina/Galiamov on the podium (w/ two of T/M, B/K and P/K)
Not open for further replies.
