Why the heck does he hate Alysa so much? Is it because she isn't one of his Russian "daughters?"
I also don't get his comments about Alysa's Dad. Anyone who's met Alysa can tell you he's the furthest thing from a tiger parent. Even those who haven't met her can probably tell just by her instagram posting habits (not carefully curated to perfection and filled with age appropriate antics), her coaching situation (by all accounts arranged by USFS; not to mention they never fired Lupetsky even in rough patches until USFS arranged alternatives for him), her siblings (none anywhere near as high achieving as her), her interviews (lots of stuff about her self motivation), her travel (often without him), and the lack of any interview mentioning her Dad being "dedicated" to her skating in the way people mention other famous tiger parents in various sports. Maybe Dave believes in racist stereotypes along with his misogynistic ones?
Dave & TSL are sensitive to cultural differences. Absolutely no “hate” behind their comments on Alysa, her dad or anyone else. Comments and even opinions are based on facts. They have insights and pipelines...and their special guests are solid, such as Moskvina, Megan, Todd recently. TSL is my weekend skating fun...my Sunday afternoon tea time. How lucky to have them!
