    Why? Zueva's bill is quite substantial and the fed is footing all of it. They need a return on that investment, so they have to poison the pool (ehem influence the judges that is) post haste. This is bizneez Also Kueva and S/K have been courting the press. I/Z and their team less so. I really hope that despite their modest team I/Z do great things. There is just this aura of complete ease, togetherness and self-confidence in their photos, that I sense we might be surprised as was Kustarova and Alexeeva by this team.

    I also get the other place you're headed Sisinka, but at the end of the day Lena and Ruslan are no fools. I am sure they can sense the backing from the fed for S/K. However there is only so much you can pull a team in the face of something clearly superior. This may be why I/Z are playing it so low key. At the end of the day each pair will have their work cut out for them on the ice.

Like when Sotnikova wrote nice things to Sinitsina and Katsalapov, they somehow managed to come up with this notion that Vaitsekhovskaya would start writing bad things about Elena because Sotnikova, whom Vaitsekhovskaya likes, happened to like Sinitsina.

    I'm not saying there aren't Ilinykh haters (there's definitely some), but I think her fans are beginning to rival some members of the Virtue and Moir fan club in terms of the ability to turn any bit of news into a vast conspiracy. It's funny reading the old Sinitsina/Zhiganshin fan group, which was mostly populated by Vika and Ruslan's relatives, friends, anyone affiliated with Kustarova, and die hard fans. Around worlds time, the IK fans invaded the group and were complaining that no one there would discuss the rumors and the admin pretty much had to tell the IK fans that the group doesn't do pity parties.
    I travel around five different Russian Forums about figure skating and people talk and criticise everybody and everything there, but there are also interesting comments – like at every skating forum. But I didn’t see any tendency you are describing there.

    So you probably talk about Vkontakte groups of fans. I heard that there are many people who write how much hot and sexy skaters are, how much they love them….that is nice but far from figure skating talks…so I really don’t know whether it is wise to take anything from such vk groups here where people try to discuss figure skating sport both off and on the ice on the first place. I also know that groups of fans for I&K, S&K or I&Z are closed, so you have to be a member to get there. So you are a member of all those group when you know what exactly they are writing there and that it is written exactly by Ilinykh fans?

    More people here and many people at those five Russian Figure Skating Forums think that Vika & Nikita are much more supported than Lena & Ruslan by Russian Fed and by media. And it is not definitelly based on the opinion of girls from Vk groups.

    Please, talk more about Weaver/Poje or Capellini/Lanotte, Chock/Bates versus Shibutanis, Paul/Islam versus Gilles/Poirer.These are the teams that already showed their .
    Well, it is a topic about Elena and Nikita after all.
    As for the talent, Elena and Nikita are more talented and gifted than all those skaters. In my book of course.
    How would they do from now on, with different partners? We'll have to wait and see.

    …Ilia Averbukh gave an interview about Lipnitskaya where he mentioned Lena and Ruslan and partly Vika and Nikita as well.

    The theme for the free dance is the man/woman story
    That's good to know Ilia. I was afraid they would dance to a man&man story.

    Good to read Averbukh liked Najarro's choreography. Can't wait to see Najarro and Averbukh's works.
