Just a thought here.... Do you really think that the Scotvolds don't
bear *any* responsibility for not only Kirk and Irving deciding to leave
them, but quite a number of their other pupils like Matt Lind, too?
There *has* been something like a mass exodus from Cape Cod this season,
and it seems kind of far-fetched that it would all be coincidental.
FWIW, Evy in particular has long had a reputation in New England of
being very tough on his students. I don't know of any incidents where
he's gone over the line into outright abuse with any of his students,
but after the year she's had, I can see how Jenny could have felt like
putting up with routine verbal or emotional bashing from her coach was
not helping her. But Callaghan doesn't exactly have a warm and fuzzy
reputation in that area either, so who knows. Maybe Jenny just wants
to get away from a place where she's been unhappy.
