Is it Feduccia who is the main opponent of Sinosauropteryx having feathers? I wasn't sure how extensive the debate was about it.

He's almost the whole show. The issue was fuzzy when he started but he's held on about 10 years too long.
He thinks birds descended directly from archosaurs, the parent group of dinos.

Yes...new study out in October of this year with some heavyweights.
Shows that this fossil never had feathers or protofeathers (just wishful thinking by many not-so scientific evolutionists).
There was a press conference and there were several articles written and posted on the internet.
