I'm tired too.
I said long ago, that I am not ready to discuss Evgeni and Alexei on a forum. Not because of Yagudin. You may tell anything, as you see. It's OK.
I'll tell only one story. It was 2010. Lambiel's fans were surprised, when they read, that Lambiel won't go to skate with Evgeni somewhere in Siberia. It was Yagudin who agreed to run to Siberia and to replace Lambiel in Evgeni's show. Lambiel's fans were saying: "It is interesting to know, are they going to make Yagudin dance around Plushenko too and kneel on a knee?" "I had the same question. LOL But Yag won't kneel for sure." "I just hope, that maybe they'll do normal beginning and final for everybody, so that Stephane won't have to bow too"
Yagudin came, Yagudin skated 2 times for encore, the articles informed, that Yagudin thanked the audience. (Why Yagudin was the one who thanked? Who knows.) Totmianina and Marinin also came and skated. Yagudin didn't kneel, Totmianina didn't kneel and Marinin didn't kneel.
So... that is what Lambiel's fans thought about Evgeni's shows.
You suppose, that people speak about Evgeni's arrogance because of Yagudin. Well... I don't think, that Yagudin is the reason.
Yet I really hope, that now Evgeni became more attentive to people.
I like how Evgeni can speak now.
As for Yagudin... to say the truth, he often kneels.

Wow! And LOL. Lala, you are patient.Probably you like Evgeni's speak now because you listen to the original videos, not his haters' false words.. He was a kind, funny,and sincere guy in his whole life.
Do not take it as offence to the honour given. He is just fully happy now with his family and he said the same thing on an interview for Russian TV. That if he knew what kind of happiness, the kids and family brings he would exchange all his medals for it. That is not bad, just everything for its time.Lol... They should have invited him, so that he could say, that he doesn't care. (!!!)
Alexei Nikolaevich Mishin and Alexei Yagudin are included to the Figure Skating Hall of Fame in Colorado
alexei.yagudin: Today I was included to the Figure Skating Hall of Fame, which is located in Colorado Springs (USA, Colorado). Of course, being included to the Hall of Fame is an honour for me, I am happy. I want to thank all those who voted for me. Yet....... actually, I don't care!!! I try to think not about the past, but about the present, in which the close-knit family is my main victory, my Hall of Fame. Two charming daughters. This is the coolest thing!!!
They could go together. It seems, Mishin doesn't care too.
It could be such a charming event...
It is said, that now 3 Russian coaches are there. Moskvina is there since 2005, Tarasova is there since 2008.
Thank you, Irena. Yet don't worry for him, he is an adult man. When his wife says, that he is a clown, she adds: "He won't take offence. He teaches me not to take offence."Do not take it as offence to the honour given.
Rina, this was AWESOME. So so so awesome. My god, his making fun of ice dancers (likely in the presence of Morozov) was hysterical. <3
