  1. And the ‘Stars on Ice’ statement doesn’t have the ring of truth, either.

    I think we’re still missing important information:

    If there roster was full, there would no room for more performers. It is a business, after all.

    How did this all get started? Did Weir or his agent approach Stars on Ice? If so, they aren’t doing much more than applying for a job that might have already been filled.

    If they did ask to be part of the Stars on Ice program, did they do so before these other people were signed up?

    I think that if JW was one of 10 people ‘applying’ for 4 positions, there is always the option that others could have been chosen for any number of reasons.

    If, on the other hand, he asked to skate with them, and they said ‘no’, then went out and solicited other applicants, something would smell fishy.

  3. It’s hard to imagine the Stars on Ice statement is true. Think about these facts and then decide what might be the cause of his absence from the tour roster…

    1) He’s the biggest name they could possibly get
    2) He’d bring the $$ through the door
    3) He wants to take part
    4) They haven’t signed him up

    Homophobia is irrational. Tour organisers and sponsors missing this opportunity to print money is definately irrational.

    Something stinks – could it be the smell of Smuckers?
