    Why, oh why? They just had the most successful season.

    While I completely understand that John needs time to heal, this is so disappointing. I felt like they were finally coming into their own as a team and was so excited to see them grow and develop over the next few years. I feel as though they had just scratched the surface.

    I wish both of them the best of luck!

    Who's out there for Caitlin to skate with????

    the curse of the US pairs! This seems very oddly timed. They had a great season and even skated well at worlds. I was expecting them to continue to grow next season.
    I guess I should expect it now. 2 of the top three pairs at Nats will split up before June each year.

    So many of the top US pair teams split. You medal at nationals you go to worlds and then the team splits. Whoa. Good luck to both of them.

    Drat. This is lousy news. Can my day get any worse, my commute into work this morning was like a day in h***, it is dark and pouring rain outside and now click on GS and see this news. Sheesh. Finally a US pair team that I really liked and thought could really improve leading up to 2014, and now it is over. Sounds like John is retiring to me. I am glad Caitlin is looking for a new partner. Wishing them both good luck and as for me I am going to buy some chocolate.

    What is wrong with these people. Wow...no more. I think I'll just ignore our U.S. pairs.

    USFSA: Do something! This is insane.

    Good luck to you both, John and Caitlin. You were a lovely team.

    I think we need to put John's career into perspective. We're talking about a guy who put everything of himself into this season as a tribute to his mom who he lost just what over a year ago? He's had the season of his life, and had an extremely emotional long program to boot. I think we're looking at burn out. This might have been the plan all along, that he was going to give it one more year for his mom and then that's it. This isn't a whole "we have too many ups and downs I'm sick of it and looking for something new"... I think this is more of a "I have nothing left to give."

    That being said - I really wasn't expecting this announcement and as a fan of this team (who was REALLY excited for them with all of their successes!) I'm very disappointed, but I can understand why and how it happened. I wish them both much luck and joy in their futures.
