Farewell Nicolas Nadeau!
Entry: Feb 18th, 2017
Exit: Oct 20th, 2021
Career highlights: Junior Worlds 2016, 2nd; Four Continents 2019, 11th

A junior career so promising, but already showing first signs of the
:gallopin1
potential. Missing JW FS as 25th 2015 turned into a silver medal 2016, followed by a 12th place finish the year after. As male counterpart to the RUS
:gallopin1
-Four, you were part of the CAN
:gallopin1
-Trio of juniors alongside Orzel and Sadovsky.
Despite all the talent, the big results as a senior never happened but, as a true star member, you made the MESS nominations list two times: 2018 and 2020. Iconic programs and epic choreo, combined with your charisma made us fall in love with you.
Instagram content like this, or this, or this, and yeah this, or that - gave Vice sleepless nights.
We suggested switching to pairs so many times, so we will cheer this route all along.

Thanks for an awesome ride Elvis.

Au revoir!

FAQ:

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 are Elizaveta Tuktamysheva and Han Yan on the List?
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., Amber Glenn, Camden Pulkinen, and Gracie Gold.
Isn't this "Team" just a haven for the bossman's favorites
No. If it were, Alexander Samarin would have been on it years ago.
What is the Black Mark of #TTW?
It's our own special curse, bestowed when the bossman allows a skater to the Team based on a certain number of votes rather than his own judgment or a consensus, as required by Rule #3. The curse has been known to end skaters' careers or send their lives into a tailspin
Sally Skater and Peter Partner fell on their death spiral 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.
Do Junior World medals disqualify a skater from consideration?
No. If anything, they add to the luster of a #TTW candidacy.
Why is this thread in The Trash Can, whereas From Russia with Love is in Great Skate Debate?
We care about the company we keep.
Is there a King and Queen, or is everybody equal?
No, but we do have the bossman and vice.
Can someone explain what this thread is about/for?
No.

We know you cannot keep up with us, no matter how hard you are trying :rofl:

But I’m doing the best job I ever have… Can’t argue with me there.

Why did he retire? I love him. I thought he was going to go places in skating

I hope he rocks it in pairs

Vlad was kicked off the train, but Camden still holds a ticket? Boss, what’s going on? #justiceforhairbrushguy
(When drawing Vlad, I realised his eyebrows are damn fine as well)

Hi, I'm "Ruby999," an FS Universe lurker (especially Team Trainwreck) and occasional poster. When I'm not watching figure skating, I'm a writer and cartoonist. My husband and I have just started a figure skating blog called "Rink Monster" that can be accessed via my writing website at the following URL: https://marileewest.com/writing/sports/
We are hoping to recruit new superfans and entertain existing ones.
Please check it out!
Cheers,
Marilee West/Ruby999
Marilee, your taste is impeccable! :respec: :gallopin1

Panova at GP circuit.
Clock is ticking :love: :watch:
Is Sinitsina still with her? Dare I hope to see her in the KnC? Dare I hope to see she and Tutberidze standing at the boards pretending the other isn't there? All I need is for the triumvirate to be together again when #Tsarevadaughter rises like a phoenix and makes her GP debut. Or junior worlds. Or junior nationals if it must be. #tongueofdisgust vs #rollingeye vs. #haughtydisdain
:swoon:

Nadeau deserves a Do-Hard Hall of Fame but skating and programs wise... not much above Stojko/Messing entertainment levels..

Wishing him the best in pairs though.

I also picked Miura/Kihara as the pair spoiler. If they skate like they did at the US challenger, they can beat Kinerm/Frasier.
