I figured Zhulin's plan was to distract the judges and callers with Vika's thong so they ignored everything else. Seemed to work so clever thinking on his part.
It does seem to be deliberate....
If you've got it, flaunt it I say!

Farewell Camden Pulkinen!
Entry: Nov 25th, 2019
Exit: Nov 13th, 2021
Career highlights: Junior Worlds 2018, 6th; JGPF 2017, 2nd

Your almost 2years train ride terminates today. Another promising junior career failing to fully arise in seniors.
Your history is filled with stunning music choices for you on paper, which unfortunately all turned out to be rather flat though in reality: West Side Story, Caruso, Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence.
You brought us eyebrows lv4, lovebirds action, Tammy, MESS- and Tursy-POTS-moments, but in the end all this could not hide from the simple fact that you just have lost to da freakin' Schott on Grand Prix stage.

Goodbye!

Farewell Daniel Samohin!
Entry: Nov 11th, 2016
Exit: Nov 13th, 2021
Career highlights: Junior Worlds 2016, 1st; Olympics 2018, 13th; Ica Mall Cup 2019, 1st

The time has come. You stood there on the edge of the cliff so often, saved by Vice time after time - not today.
Your career went straight uphill from winning the first gold medal at a major championships for ISR at junior worlds 2016 to becoming the Posterboy of #teamtrainwreck.
The more your #blackwolfwhitewolf game was on, the more your skating seemed ready for the Chihuahua Open. Your splats were memorable, highlighted by the dislocated shoulder accident at Skate America 2017. You cumulated 3 back-to-back :gallopin1-POTS-nominations, winning 2018 with your legendary 3:17min SP at Ondrej Nepela Memorial 2017.
Thanks for the entertainment over all those years. This will hit the press office really hard.
#whitewolf4ever!

It's likely getting shorter, tagging you @nugu @missnolutz @marinhonda @emmi @postergirl @eunsoo

Han Yan and LaTuk will stay of course :D

What if the Russian fed send LaTuk to the Olympics for her stability, and she ends up in the team event for the same reason? :)
What an epic exit from TTW that would be, with a gold medal🥇around her neck !🚂

We have been doing pre-removal grief counseling here during you-know-what, and we're fine with it. :p

It is getting very short.

I am worried that Eteri Tutberidze is going to drive #TTW out of existence by cutting off the supply of Russian women who can both (1) be heartbreaking and (2) have the complete package to potentially be a top skater at Euros/4CC's/Worlds/Olympic level. 😟

But maybe Symbidium & Partner will get that complete package. 🙏

Fear not, there are juniors rising to fill those empty spots. And, we have Naumov for consideration, Mama'sbaby Levandi and others. We know Panfilova's senior debut season delayed by injury will be at the top of the list for heartbreak. Well, mine anyway.

We may need either a broader or more definitive definition of heartbreak, however.

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.
Can a thread be #TTW?
Only if it's this one.
Why is this thread in The Trash Can, whereas the Russian Ladies thread 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.
Will #TTW survive after this season?
Stayed tuned.
Can someone explain what this thread is about/for?
No.

Ouch. Camden done in by a fellow TTW member.

It was great fun while it lasted (those two glorious weeks) having him and his GF united on TTW.

This list doesn't feel right without at least one American man on it. Who shall emerge from the mists to take Camden's place of honor?
