To Skate or Not to Skate at Sochi
Should the "old guys" be allowed to return to skate at the Olympics in Sochi? I know Plushenko is looking to return but I also heard Todd Eldredge make a case for a comeback as well. Really? I am not so sure this is wise. I think once skaters have had a good run at the Olympics and have since left the competitive scene of the skating world that should be it. Let the new skaters have a fair chance. Anyway that is my opinion, so debate away!

Well that's ridiculous. You can't "disallow" anyone to not participate given they make the team. The decision should be based on their own mental preparedness. If they can achieve the standard of the field, I don't see why not.
I mentioned Evan should evaluate if he's able to keep up with the field. If he can, by all means go for it but if he's not even able be a contender then I think he should pack his bags and go home to his Vancouver gold medal. Better to end well than to be remembered for a bad comeback.
For Pushenko, if he thinks injury and more medals are worth it and he's able to keep up, then I don't see what the problem is.
Basically I think it fair but they should only go for it if they can be real contenders or else it's not worth it to tarnish reputation
