MY THOUGHT EXACTLY. AS MUCH AS I LOVE AMERICAN COACHES, AND I THINK THEY ARE THE BEST, I FIND THE RUSSIAN COACHES TOP NOCTH AS WELL.What on earth are you people talking about? Nothing that I can see remotely relates to the topic. Get a life and start making comments that make sense. All you are doing is slinging hash at each other. Both Johnny and Evan are elite athletes and should be treated as such with respect for what they have achieved. What have you people ever achieved at the same level? I hope you have noticed that Johnny has done some serious rethinking and evaluating of his career, and has made a major coaching change. It will remain to be seen what happens next....if he will be able to pull it together and maintain the discipline to really train. His new Russian coach will be no Priscilla Hill, as great a coach as she is.
MY SECODARY COACH WHO HAD BEEN @ NATIONALS YEARS AGO HAD HAD A RUSSIAN COACH. AND, HE IS GOOOOOOD. EVEN THOUGH I CANNOT AFFORD A RUSSIAN COACH AT THE PRESENT, I AM GETTING A TASTE OF IT THROUGH MY SECONDARY COACH.
THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH NATIONALISM OR PATRIOTISM, QUALITY COMES IN MANY DIFFERENT ETHNICITY. YOU JUST HAVE TO BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF; AND THINK WITH YOUR HEAD. YOU MAY LOVE YOUR COACH TO DEATH; HOWEVER IF YOUR YOUR RELATIONSHIP BECOMES STAGNANT, THEN IT IS TIME TO MOVE ON. AND IF A RUSSIAN COACH IS WHAT WILL SEAL THE DEAL, THEN GO FOR IT!!! I AM IN TOTAL AGREEMENT WITH JOHNY. HE IS NOT ONE TO MINCED WORDS, NOW HE SHOULD NOT MINCE HIS PROGRESS.
