What he said was that he hopes the USFSA consider his track record before deciding solely on his performances in this one competition. That was right after his skate, before the last group had even skated, am I right? Before any final medal positions were even known? He made his case and his case only, did not mention any names and no results were even in at that point. And then said he wasn't too optimistic about it. And that's it. I thought there was nothing unsportsmanlike in his behaviour or his words, in fact I'm impressed by how composed/strong he came off. As opposed to 'pleading' or whatever nonsense the press has printed so far, for example. Now that I've finally seen the interview, I actually almost snorted out loud because everybody's been making it out to seem like he got on his hands and knees and begged or something. *holds back an eyeroll, but only just barely*
