Dynastar's budget was cut 40% last year - and will be cut 20% this year? First of all, this (again) is not relavent to the conversation, and secondly, I believe, is simply not true. How they could do this and re-sign Marion, Rainville, and Vanular when they all had breakout years is laughable. As this sort of information isn't given out freely, I would like to hear your source on this second outrageous claim of your's.
Also, "you don't think electric is fully behind it." It sounds to me like you need to tell me who these athletes are who were close enough to the company to know the owner's TRUE intentions, and if we're talking about kids that don't even deserve a pair of goggles, let's be frank here: there are plenty of people out there who think they should be winning the X-Games every year without a goggles sponsor. If these people you speak of don't think they get enough support from a sponsor, obviously their talent level couldn't have anything to do with it, could it? It MUST be the company's lack of support for the freeskiing community! Come on. And no one would ever bad mouth a company if they've been dropped, right? We're much too mature to do something like that . . . I am actually serious though, I would like the names of these skiers; message my name if you like.
Look, you need to realize that there are a lot of different companies out there. Is there an outside chance Electric will drop their entire ski program tomorrow? A slight one sure - about 0.0001%. But trust me on this one, it's not going to happen. Line dropped their whole team because they didn't know how to run a ski company, and made huge mistakes. Electric has been killing it in every aspect of their business, and the ski market is nothing different for them. They will be around for a while, trust me.
