Evgeny Plushenko is a liar and just because the rest of the World is too stupid to see it doesn’t mean it isn’t true.
I saw this coming weeks ago and apparently I am the only person with a memory because the world seems to have forgotten that Plushenko never wanted to compete at the Olympics accept in the team event. He said it to the Russian media (This article alludes to it at the very end)
Then when it looked like he might not be named to the team (after royally screwing up his Nationals LP,finishing 2nd and not competing at Euorpeans) he then demanded a spot on the team and the Russian skating federation folded quicker than a house of cards and handed him the Olympic spot.
Now low and behold after getting to do the team event Plushenko is now “injured” and won’t be competing in the Mens final and we are somehow to believe this is a legit injury? I am calling Bull Shit.
He is quitting because he never intended to do the men’s event but his selfish ego couldn’t let the spot go to Maksim Kovtun. He had the nerve to beat him for the National title. He couldn’t give up the spot to Sergey Voronov who finished second at Europeans because God forbid he share the spot light with a guy good enough to win a medal at Europeans.
Plushenko is playing the role of Nastia Liukin here. He is taking credit for giving the good old “valiant effort” respect me because I tried. The only difference is Nastia didn’t make it to the Olympics and Plushenko did.
Nastia had to prove herself in person where as Plushy got the good old “secret camp” Marta wasn’t afforded last year and he proved he was ready “In private”
Plushenko is a liar and a cheater any way you slice it and if he had given up the spot I still might have been annoyed but I would have at least given him credit for letting someone else get a chance to compete at an Olympics in their home Country.
We are supposed to believe that Maksim Kovtun.”didn’t care about the Olympics any more” Come on.
I wouldn’t be surprised to hear the Russian mafia was involved here.
Anyone remember when Maria Butyrskaya’s car was blown up outside her apartment. Rumor back then was it was the Russian mafia. They didn’t want competition for Irina Slutskaya. Why else would a skater not care about the Olympics all of a sudden. As far as conspiracy theories go this one makes sense. Her ex-boyfriend, was allegedly murdered by the mob too.
I was at work all day and I just found out how Plushenko left the competition. He seriously went out there to skate and then quit? This isn’t a sport its a fucking Broadway play.
Yuna Kim, You are out only hope
I said before Russia supports anyone that is of Russian decent even if they don’t compete for Russia and it explains the overscoring of the US’s pair team. He was born in Russia and he ass kissed them like crazy after the competition.
Mens SP article. Chan screws up a jump and gets 97? Canada better shut up on the fixed competition because its clear Canada is the one that has a deal with the French to help Chan win for future considerations. What better way to hide your cheating by accusing others of cheating?
If you read any article in this blog read the Princess and the Princess and the Ice Queen. Haven’t I been saying this all along?
We will be discussing protocals when I actually get to watch the SP’s/
10 minutes of Plushenko faking an injury. The balls to do this in front of a camera. Give this guy a Tony
I bet we get the 2 Americans, Chan and Hanyu as SP’s and no one else.
More Plushy zZzZzZzZzZzzzzzzz
Wow that fall was hard. His leg flew up. Maybe he is playing the role of Plushenko on this performance. Pretty good for a guy that just fell into the boards. It looked like he had the wind knocked right out of him.
He was not even close to the rotation on that quad.
Jason Brown has small jumps. He reminds me of Weir. Pretty spin. Skating needs to let the word know if it likes overall good performances or jumps because the judging here does not let us know that.
What the Buckshow agree’s with me on Plushy
Hanyu Beautiful quad toe loop. Spin 3 times, change position, spin again, change positions. This is skating folks. Beautifully done but still. Skating just has repeats. The Triple lutz, triple toe was pretty and I checked the protocals and he got plus’s from everyone. Some one, some 2, some 3. How that only got 3 plus points better than Chan is judges cheating.
Looking at the protocals Chan steps out of a jump and 3 judges don’t give him a negative GOE. Those 3 judges need to lose their jobs. That is blatant cheating.
Clown outfit. That is no mime its a clown: Quad sow with a spin. That is new. Another turn out. Wow he got some gifts. This is third?
Shut up Hamilton.
Chan I am going to start calling him Ohashi 2 because he is a beautiful skater when he hits but when he messes up judges still attempt to cheat for him. Katelyn would fall and bobble and the judges would ignore it. It’s just wrong.
Quad triple was nice but not plus 2 nice and the triple was not as good as the quad. Triple Axel step out. No way that didn’t deserve-2 across the board. Not sure how he gets positive GOE on his slow spins. Traveling the ice too. That last spin was way slower than everything done by Hanyu.
Sandra is an idiot. One small mistake. He fell out of a jump. Why are the NBC announcers lying? Oh right, he’s Canadian
TAKAHASHI So he’s old and not skating his best but the quality of his skating never gets the Chan treatment. Beautiful artistry in this program. Great Triple lutz, triple toe. Not his best but hell if everyone can be overscored so can Dice.
Where is the German guy? He finished 5th.
