    It was strange that Lysacek called Weir a bad skater. That SOI wont hire Weir because he is some kind of skating trash. That went far beyond anything Weir has ever said.

The fact that he can't play nice and meld into their already established family is my reasoning as to why he's not on.
    Yeah. I think another big thing is promotion. You see cast members like Cohen, Weiss, etc. get on news programs and advertise the show, say a bunch of good old PR things about it, etc. to get people to come and see the show. I take it Weir wouldn't do that...he likes being "honest".

    Anyway, I figured he already knows he's not going to be on SOI ever, so he feels free to declare open season on them.

    Hey, Skating fans should actually be encouraging this feud to continue, since it might translate to juicy tabloid news, which could translate to a story for FS on TV, which = potentially more viewers = more sponsorships = more skating on TV.

    To gmyers:

    I agree with you. But Evan was responding to Johnny though....and he did make a nice and decent sounding apology and even berated himself for what he said. Another person might have accepted Evan's apology or atleast had a classier comeback.

    I really don't follow figure skating gossip. Can any of these quotes be documented? At least it didn't become physical as with thoser two US Ladies.

    joe there are several articles on the feud in teh last couple of days (the ones by Johnny Weir are linked) he also went on several talk shows to talk about it...


    but yeah, for someone who 'doesn't care what others think' he sure acts like it

    Toni, what little I know about it, it does seem like something I ignore. I'd rather talk about their skating and Evan's new found talent of dancing.

    I've only followed it due to the threads here... I don't know who started it, I don't care to know, I have my own opinions on each and right now I'm just overly annoyed with both of them reverting back to their teenage mentalities. They're 25/26 years old, they need to start showing it a bit more.

    Evan never said Weir was a "bad skater." He said SOI is very particular about who they hire, that they have high standard. He said Johnny was probably disappointed because of money involved.

    Couldn't your comparison be considered pretty insulting to GIRLS?

    But atleast one of them was "man" enough to apologize. The other apparently went into psycho mode
