    Its not like he is the prime of russian fs either. i like him much more than Voronov and Kobtun but Menshov could have beaten him in nationals, Plushenko earned his spot while he could have had a bye from RF. and it's not like Menshov didn't go because of Plush, he didn't go because of Kovtun.

In other words he never won what he didn't deserve unlike those whose names shall not be named. Therefore all the assumptions that I read here have no merit.
    He wasn't 30 back then.

    Yes. :(

    But I think he believed he could still win.

    Or that it wasn't as bad as everyone was making out. At least, that was likely his facade; I'm sure inside he knew was going to struggle bigtime.
