This is a very unfortunate situation, if in fact any of it is true.  Some how,
this does not surprise me at all.  And anyone back in her hometown of
Pittsburgh (Mt. Lebanon, Pa. to be exact) is probably not surprised either.
Sooner or later, when you make it to the "top", some of your personal problems
and little secrets will start to come out.  Actually, the people back in
Pittsburgh have been very kind.  Heaven knows, when they left for Detroit, they
behind alot of bad history.  

Wonder if they'll go back or move to New York.  Her mother Robyn, is from
there.

Very interesting.

Not to mention which...this has to be the second thread alluding to a
"personal problem and a little secret" that assumes that "we all know what
we're really talking about here" without coming out and saying it.

Excuse me, but I seem not to have gotten the memo that says that every
single time you hear a male skater is "ill," it's code for "He's got
AIDS," and every single time you hear a female skater is "ill," it's code
for "She has an eating disorder."

Sheesh, from reading RSSIF you'd completely forget that skaters still get
things like cancer, pneumonia, pinkeye, etc.

That, and the fact that if I was stuck with "friends" like JetSkater99, I'd
leave town, too.  What a loser!

And we still have very little info on this situation.  Cross your fingers real
tight, folks.

How interesting - I mean your need to interpret my post as some sort of jab
towards Jamie.  I'll simply dismiss it as some sort of depression and your
inability to accept reality. You probably have very little real skating
background.  I hardly expect skating fans to understand the real world of
competitive skating.  I have approx. 35 years behind me, and I don't mean
watching it on TV. Ten of those were spent at the University of Delaware.
Maybe you are just being a little too sensitive right now.  It's
understandable.  The whole skating community has put alot of hope and
expectations on these two.  I might add, it's been a big adjustment for them.
Some of this may have been brought on by irresponsible posters last year who
award Jamie the "Give me a cookie - I'm starving award"  I assure you, Jamie,
her mother Robyn and her brother Dan read these boards.  I am simply stating a
fact, once you enter the elite world of sports, get ready, everything becomes
public knowledge.  I don't feel the need to use my real name.  I will assure
you that I am well connected in the Eastern  and Mid Section skating community.
 I've known Jamie since she was 3.  I've known Robyn and her family for years.
I've lost touch with her father after he had a stroke. The last I knew he was
practicing medicine in West ***ia.  The family has been pretty much torn
apart by skating.  They've given up ALOT, this is a shame, but I'm still not
surprised.

From your original post:

problems
and little secrets will start to come out.  Actually, the people back in
Pittsburgh have been very kind.  Heaven knows, when they left for Detroit,

That, especially when most people here have no idea
exactly what you're talking about, sounds like a
"jab at Jamie" to me. Veiled secretive references
to "personal problems and little secrets" and
"bad history"? Oh, yeah, you must be a real pal.

 I'll simply dismiss it as some sort of depression and your

And the "real world of competitive skating" would be,
what, veiled innuendo posted in a public forum?

Jetskater99 hid his/her identity and threw petty gossip at us with:

Whatever the truth is -- even if you are (as you see it) being
truthful -- it's none of our business and it certainly isn't your
business to be spreading rumors and innuendo.

No one said we were pals...  secretive? well maybe to those of you who only
watch on tv.  Skaters, coaches and parents who have experienced National level
behind the scenes skating know what I'm talking about.  >Forgive me, your

Since the majority of people *here* are not "skaters, coaches,
and parents who have experienced National level behind the
scenes skating," what was the point of posting a post
full of vague innuendo *here*?

Since the majority of people *here* don't have any
inside information on Jamie Silverstien, what, again,
was the point of posting those whispers *here*?

Trying to start rumors? Kicking someone while they
are down? Or self-aggrandizement?

 >No, but you can kiss my ass.

If it's half as big as your ego, I'd get lost.

Oh my gawd!!! I should have guessed, you're obviously one of those ***
skaters who wished they had had the chance, talent, money, guts, and priviledge
to skate. instead, you will have to settle for your little internet world of
skating.  How pitiful.  Maybe in your next life!

Oh, but you see, many of them do.  They just choose to lurk.  Anyone who has
spent any time at the DSC can tell you, the place is teeming with exciting
little tidbits.  Why do you think they've closed it off to the public?

I'll be there next week.  I'm sure  I'll hear all about it.

How curious.  Why would anyone be depressed about what you have
written?  And why would it be a matter of not being able to accept
reality?  You haven't said anything sufficiently concrete for anyone to
accord you with any credibility.  All you've written here are vague
innuendo, and none of it can be perceived to be complimentary.

Oh, it just gotta be.  Or else it is someone who has read the same

Gee.  With friends like you, who needs enemies?
