Ok. I knew he was a big opponent of dinosaur-bird evolution, though I was not sure if this was one of his big bones of contention, so to speak. :)

I do know that even if Sinosauropteryx is found not to have feathers, there have been a number of other species that do have them.

Right. And the problem with Feduccia's premise is that there shouldn't be any feathered dinosaurs at all, unless all the dinos from day one had them. Thus it's absurd to harp on the most ambiguous, and perhaps even the most primitively scale-like fossil feathers when we have so many unambiguous fossil dinosaur feathers that wreck his case.
