    I will miss them dearly. I was hoping to see them at the Europeans in Sheffield next year too... But if they think it is the best for them, then it must be so. Very best of luck for their next step(s)!

    It's too bad when retirement is necessity, not choice. It's also too bad they don't get to compete in England next year. They've been a great team to watch over the years. I am sure they have good things in their future.

    I wish them the best luck. Though they mentioned broadcasting career, I dearly hope that they also consider being show skaters.

    They would be great at it.

    if Sinead's shoulder allows it. There could be more going on than they're letting us know, too.

    Oh, phooey! I hate to see them go. They were unique, and they had a long enough career so we could watch them mature. I also liked the fact that Britain once again had a world-class skating couple; it's been awhile.

    I wish this was an April Fools' joke. I love this team, and hope they get to perform in lots of shows.

    Sorry to hear that. They will be missed. It was nice to have such a wonderful team from Scotland. Kerr was my grandmother's maiden name and she was from the same town Sinead was born so i always thought they might be related LOL. Best wishes to them.

    Sinead and John, great innovators of their sport. I would put them in the same league as:

    Torvill/Dean
    Duschesnay/Duschesnay
    Drobiazko/Vanagas
    Denkova/Staviski
    Winkler/Lohse
    Delobel/Schoenfelder

    All the best, but please don't do Dancing On Ice
