Sixty judges and officials worldwide have received his e-mail. Specifically Plushenko and Brian were named!

This follows the statement of last year of Chan which said that he would ask the judges for an extrème alertness in comparison with Brian, I hope that the judges will be uncommitted (they should reread Olympic charter and to remember of 2002)!
Lobbying is always present but this becomes heavy nevertheless!!!
Ça suit la déclaration de l'année dernière de Chan qui disait qu'il demanderait aux juges une extrème vigilance par rapport à Brian , j'espère que les juges seront impartiaux ( ils devraient relire la charte olympique et se rappeler de 2002 ) !
Le lobbying est toujours présent mais ça devient lourd quand même !!!

rage grrrrrrrrrmur irritated.

This Inman guy is a total jerk. grrrrrrrrrmur I cannot believe that he was so clueless to think that there wouldn't be serious questions raised about his ill-timed email. All the skating messageboards are in an uproar over this....and rightly so. The other question which arises from this (and so far hasn't been addressed) is who brought the email to the attention of L'Equipe and what was their reason for doing so?

I have read dozens of "explanations" from various sources as to why Inman's email was sent out to the 60 judges---supposedly because those 60 had attended various seminars he gave during the year to educate them about judging as it pertains to COP. Well, that's all fine and dandy if such an email was sent out prior to the competitive season. However sending it out immediately before the single biggest competition, which only occurs once every four years, is highly suspicious....and apparently one of the email recipients thought so, too. Suspect Why else would that person have made the email available to such a news source as L'Equipe?

It is hard to believe that this Inman guy is that dumb, since he's a judge! It certainly doesn't say much that is good about judges and judging ethics, does it? Sending it out when he did, it's is all too easy to construe that Inman had ulterior motives (whether he really did or not). Given that it's a known fact in the skating world that there is a lot of collusion going on behind the scenes at some of these competitions, it isn't hard to see that some people, including judges, would go to any lengths to make sure a particular country's skater wins the coveted Olympic gold medal. grrrrrrrrrmur

OMG! I just read the translation on FSU and there comments! pffffffffffffffff
Unbelievable! We have this rule in Holland that every person has a right to give his opinion. Freedom of speaking as long as there is no harm done! but this is going beyond that.
