I don't think this commentator is the first newsman who has smeared Plushenko's reputation to date. Plushenko is only making an example of him to tide over the hardest period in his lifetime. Nothing wrong with that. I wish him good luck.
And Plushy didn't lose his sense of humour:
"I became a world-class people. Not just an athlete and a person. Screws have American, polymer have Swiss, Belgian thread, I myself am Russian. All on my side. So go ahead for their dreams, new goals! The only thing I now walk with a screwdriver because the screws can get loose, and I my team sometimes curls. I just Terminator. I'll be back!"
R-media reported that inquiry on Plu case against Zhurankov was reassigned from the local police division (Central district of Moscow) where the charges were originally filed, to the Main Department of Internal Affiars of Moscow-city (a.k.a. Moscow city Police). Eurosport officials refused to give any comments on the issue: http://news.sport-express.ru/2013-02-19/568502/
let's talk, Thanks for keeping us up to date on this.
It's interesting to me not just because it's Plushenko, but also because the concept of felony slander or libel is so different to what is done in the US..
But the more I think about it, the more I think the US would be better off if we had such a law & that people actually went to the police station and took advantage of it when they were lied about in this way.
I would like to see the people on TV, tabloid & radio actually think twice before telling the more ridiculous lies about other people (usually in the opposite political party, but also about celebrities)..
(By the way, is this thread missing a few comments? I was in a hurry before, but I'm sure I saw Olympia respond to this? And - as so often - I just loved what she said. )
Again, I'm thinking of a J Michael Straczynski quote:
"They told us not to wish in the first place, not to aspire, not to try; to be quiet, to play nice, to shoot low and aspire not at all. They are always wrong. Follow your dreams. Make your wishes. Create the future. And above all, believe in yourself."
Look at this ,please http://evgeni-plushenko.com/forum/vi...&t=8&start=890
I will be back !
