Ladies, I am sorry to report that Brian is out of Skate America. No reason given at this point, and I'm surprised because he's been interviewed a lot these last few days in conjunction with the flagbearer announcement and hasn't said anything about WDing. I hope there aren't any serious problems with his prep or his federation.

Honestly, when I bought the tickets I did it with the thought in mind that he wouldn't be there. He seems to withdraw a lot. And he has complained about this country in the past. So I figured it was a 50-50 chance he'd be there.

I did the same with 2010 TEB - asked myself if I would be okay with attending even without him, decided yes, and went. And of course he withdrew before the LP... Brian has not skated a fall season since he won Worlds, it's like he's cursed or something.

I'm not surprised by the WD itself but the way it happened - no notice, no indication it might happen, just his name off the entry list - is weird.

Yes, it is weird. I think he could have informed people a bit earlier. Now there isn't even a substitute skater for him. And is it OK to withdraw from GP because one is not ready? I think there must be a medical reason to do so confused

I think I'm more suspicious than you, Yulie. Wink 

When an athlete attends a competition in another country, who pays for what? Do they pay for their trip or their federation?

I am sure a reason can be manufactured if necessary. Ankle problems is sufficiently vague and would fit the boot issue Marysy mentioned. Back pain, maybe? He can't really claim he's sick considering he was at the flagbearer announcement today... and even if it's some issue with the federation, he automatically gets two GPs as a top 12 finisher from Worlds and it has nothing to do with them.

I really hope there's nothing seriously wrong.

Well, we'll still get to see Asada, V/T, Kozuka, Ten, Takahashi, so lots of great skating. Honestly the men's field was tough to begin with and even fully prepared I'm not sure how Brian would've fared in this competition.

As for complaining about this country, I think he just couldn't resist all the fast food when he trained in the US for a few months a long time ago (as mentioned in the recent L'Equipe interview) though he seems to have enjoyed the French team's short stay in Detroit before the last Worlds...I actually wondered if that might be why he was listed for Skate America this year instead of TEB.

Agree that the withdrawal seems weird and initially thought it was a mistake (or just wishful thinking). If he must need a medical reason I'm sure at this point in his career he's not lacking for injuries. He said in the interview that he basically hurts all over and has some back pain...

I read the food complaints as Brian having a tough time with being away from home and compensating by eating too much. It goes back to his first senior season at least, he spent some time in the US then (his first GP) and gained a fair bit of weight. He has some ups and downs with his weight and maybe he's a bit of an emotional eater. I don't know if he has to follow any special diet due to having one kidney (e.g. low protein), but if that's the case, he might not want to put himself in situations where he knows he won't be eating right.

Haha, funny you should mention being an emotional eater. From the interview, when they were talking about training away from home and how he wasn't used to being in Paris last year.

Tatjana Flade just tweeted that L'Equipe reports that the FFSG sanctioned him for not doing the Masters. But the Skate America assignment has nothing to do with them; top 12 finish at worlds = two assignments. This is all very confusing.

I have no doubt he is not on best terms with the federation these days. They post very little about him on FB/Twitter and seem to have lost interest in him, which is why he can do as he pleases. I hope they won't try to overdo it.

ETA: L'Equipe article.

What?! That makes no sense. I've never heard of a federation sanctioning a skater like this. First, why would he be sanctioned for withdrawing from a competition? (Because he technically wasn't injured?) Secondly, couldn't they just fine him monetarily?

I don't think this looks very good for FFSG, but then again, I don't understand why they do most of the things they do (like not sending a third man to Worlds when they had that spot.) Quite frankly, if they knew they were going to do this, they could've done it a week ago after Masters, when there might be a chance for someone to replace Brian at Skate America. Or maybe they just thought he wasn't ready?

ETA: Is Masters required for French national level skaters, no matter what their condition? I realized that besides Worlds and Europeans, it's the only competition that he's been at every season since he started competing there in 2002.

I can only imagine how Brian must feel. First he trains hard and struggles with the pain, is finally ready to go and then a couple of days before the flight he gets a call saying DG wants to punish him and doesn’t allow him to go?!? grrrrrrrrrmur 

This is a big sanction. First of all he misses the opportunity to go to the GP final and all potential award money. Also, he could have gotten money from this competition, too. He just complained in the recent interview about his financial situation. He also misses the opportunity to get important feedback from the international judges for his new short program. This punishment is also a certain type of message to them that Brian is no longer in favor of the federation and it can also show in his future scoring and hurt his ranking and reputation.

I don’t understand this sanction at all. No one seemed to be aware that skipping the French Masters would cause a missing an opportunity to compete at GP! Evil or Very Mad  And it should be DG’s responsibility to publicly explain the reasons why he did this and what is the point of punishing an athlete like this. It’s sad how much he has bullied Brian in public let alone what he has said and done behind the scenes. I wish the people in the FFSG would open their eyes and make this kind of treatment stop.
Who knows, maybe he won’t let Brian compete at Cup of Russia, either? Maybe he won’t select him to Olys? Maybe Brian could have chosen to be the flag carrier of the Team France but the lack of support from the FFSG made them choose otherwise.

It’s going to be interesting what Brian says about this situation. Of course it would be wise just to shut up because anything bad he says about DG will only cause him more troubles. I wish somebody could talk for him. Is there any way we could show support for Brian and let the FFSG know that they can’t just treat the athletes however they like?

I just wrote a comment on an article about this and then it disappeared. I guess we can't support Brian? No 

I always go apeshit on my twitter but that doesn't count for anything.
