And here's an article with some quotes from the interview: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Yuzuru Hanyu's score for the program, give me a break. And Chan is going to win (I hope it'll be with a good skate, at least). I need P/B and Kostner to medal to make up for this debacle of a free skate.

Ye gods, Hanyu wins with that hot mess. I'm going no need a medal for Suzuki as well to make up for this mess.

Curse of the Canadian men is still true! & I think Hanyu is going to be the youngest ever mens champion....

Did Hanyu actually fall twice????

This free skate has made me think fondly of Vancouver and Torino. Except at least Brian skated well here, even if he was robbed.

My only wish & prayer was for Brian to skate clean & well & to enjoy his Olympic experience - & this has been granted! I knew he would never be given the marks to get anywhere near the podium - & I believe Brian knew this too - but it still leaves a bad taste in the mouth when the judging is so biased & quite unbelievable. I'm seriously thinking that the last thing you want to do under CoP is to actually skate a clean programme......

Javier tripled his 2nd 4S & then had too many repeats when he did a second 3S. I would have liked to see him on the podium too, but Denis skated very well.

My thoughts exactly!
I'm really proud of Brian  - he had beautiful career with Europeans and Worlds medals and that Olympic medal that is missing in his collection....well he won it in so many of our hearts long time ago!

16 senior ISU Championship medals is the most of any living singles skater. Plushenko retired with 15 and Kostner has 14.

I'm not sure people understand just how much Brian accomplished in his career. And he did it his own way, living in his hometown. Good for him.

So he out medals as well as out quads Plushy?

Quite an achievement! I have always liked his devotion to his family, friends & hometown, it is good that he didn't toss them away for his own personal gain.

wow, i did not realize that !!! awesome  manga38  ( i am saying awesome a lot right now... )

but indeed, lots of people don't see him for the accomplished athlete that he is for some reason that i don't understand.... but he is a great champion with a very long carrier with a great fighting spirit and with a personality that he did not change for others. quite an example, if you ask me !!!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. This is the first time that Brian has said something that I've thought for a while: that he probably should have retired after 2010 Worlds.

I hope he's still happy with what he's achieved since then, though.

This has been such an emotional evening. I just watched that interview and it made me cry  Sad.
I hope there will be a some kind of celebration in Poitiers in honor of his long and great career. He would deserve it. And I hope we'll still see him for many years doing galas.

PostSubject: Re: Mens SP& LP   15.02.14 1:24

I actually thought I had posted hours ago. Hmm.

Anyway, suffice it to say that I cried for about an hour after what they did to him. What they've always done to him. The whole Men's Free Skate and their rankings make no sense to me. It seemed obvious as I was watching that they were purposely lowering some skaters scores and raising others in what seemed a pretty random way, since when they usually do that Chan wins gold. I also do not understand how the Czechs were scored above Brian. I started to look at the protocols but looking over Jason Brown's I started to think that I can't do math because it just wasn't adding up. I hope an honest person somewhere who understands the technical aspects better than I will go through that competition and check those scores. They seemed more out of hand than usual.

As for Brian, I'm just so glad he made it to Sochi and that he skated two great programs. I thought he was absolutely right to do double jumps in some cases instead of falling. I have no idea what he was saying in that interview about his mom, but it made me cry even more.

Brian is such a great performer. His career on paper does not represent who he is as a world famous figure skater beloved by fans everywhere. But we know and we have to make sure everyone knows it. If he continues to skate professionally I hope to see him again live. If not, there's always youtube I guess. If he decided to walk away from skating entirely I'll still wish the best for him and never forget about him. I just hope that karma comes back around and rewards him for all the hard work he's put in and for the person that he is. He's an inspiration and a truly special person. I hope all the best for him in this life.

If any of you guys need me, I'll be on [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] yelling about something.  Cuti

PostSubject: Re: Mens SP& LP   15.02.14 8:01

I wrote earlier that it's impressive not just that Brian accomplished so much but that he did it his own way. Having thought about it some more, I came up with some specifics:

- He retired with over 100 quads; he's always said that he thought skating needs to push forward technically, and he followed on that even when the risk wasn't really in line with the reward. No other skater has landed 100.

- Brian retires with his PBs being for Rise and The Matrix, which are not among his relatively IJS-friendly programs. Ha!

- In his final competition, he skated his best SP in four years and did two quads in the LP, which I know he really wanted.

- His final competitive program was to music he'd wanted to use for years.

- It was probably his best-skated Olympics (even if the judges didn't go with him) and he got to share all that with his childhood coach for the first time.

It'll probably be tough to transition to a life outside competition, but he went out on his terms and has a lot to be proud of. For us fans, though, losing Brian, as well as Plushenko, Tomas Verner and Daisuke Takahashi - men's skating will be a lot less interesting without the old timers.
