    It is understandable from the ISU perspective that they would want Kim there. However, I have to wonder why oh why did the KSU ask for the event to be held in 2010 when it was pretty common knowledge that the top skaters - including Kim - would not be in attendance??

    It will be interesting to see what happens - like Speedy said he can't force her to go or pull her out of the Olympics. I wonder what reason her team will give for her not attending and I'm curious to see if there is a sanction against the KSU because of it.

    Uh no, I asked a question, I didn't make a statement.

    So the conspiracy theory goes as follows:

    The Japanese Skating Federation has greased the pockets of the tech specialist Myriam Loriol-Oberwiler of Switzerland for years, who does in fact have a history of downgrading Yuna. The JSF sees to it that she is the caller for the GPF in Tokyo. She deliberately downgrades Yuna in Japan so that when she deliberately downgrades Yuna in Canada she has "evidence" of Yuna's shaky skating skills to back her up. The JSF has bribed Cinquanta to the tune of heaven knows how many millions of dollars which means Cinquanta the Puppet now has to force Yuna to show up at 4CC so he can wear her out.

    Please. This couldn't possibly be true.

    Well, Yuna is probably the most favored to win the Olympic gold by the media and skating experts. There will be LOT of media scrutiny over her Olympic performances. That's something going for her, if by some reason, she places second over something as controversial as the call made by the GPF tech specialist.

    From the way that Cinquanta is bullying and threatening certain federations, it sounds more like he should be heading the mafia, not a venerable international orgnization like the ISU.

    Cinquanta wanted a career in the mafia - but they rejected him being such an idiot.

    Instead he turned to the next best thing - a career in the ISU and IOC.

    They're using the same tech panel from GPF in the Olympics? I really do hope there is no backstage intrigue going on, I really do.

    Just checked. GPF technical judge was Myriam Loriol-Oberwiler. She will be on the technical panel of the Olympics too. Myriam has a history of downgrading Yuna's jumps, doesn't she? I'm not saying Yuna is perfect because she's not, but I hope Yuna doesn't find out that the Olympics will have the same technical panel because it could play with her mind.

    How about a different theory? Knowing that if all the ladies skate their best, the podium has a good chance of being all Korean + Japanese, so the US and Canadian Feds decided to come up with a scheme to rattle the K & J skaters with the hopes of making them crumble under the pressure. Speedy, being the predictable buffoon that he is, of course will try to push the buttons of the KSF and Yuna over 4CC attendance, creating controversy. That wasn't hard, heh, heh. Now get the tech panel for Olympics to match the one that served for GPF. (This one was harder to swing, as obviously many other countries have some solidly credentialled technical specialists that were clamoring for the Oly assignment.) This sets up a Perfect Storm certain to rouse angry, paranoid, and suspicious fans everywhere, and a beautiful vehicle for making the Japanese Fed and eville corporate sponsors the scapegoats. This is all scheduled to be rolled out about 7-8 weeks out from the Oly Ladies Competition, plenty of time for fire-stoking, figurative grenade-throwing, backroom dirty deals, and such. Korea and Japan governments prepare for war. Korea also declares war on Italy.

    Oh, the results... The applecarts of Yuna, Mao, and Miki are so completely upset with protests, accusations, and interfered-with warm up sessions, that they all screw up their programs, and Joannie, Rachael, and Julia (Sebestyen) step up to the plate while nobody's looking, skate the rafters off the joint, and grab all the medals. How's that?
