Actually, I'm pretty sure Oakley has done so much for this ski industry that without them and their deep ass pockets, we may not have a site for you to rant on.
Oakley was sponsoring fools WAY before freesking was big, they hook up more kids now than any outerwear company, they make quality gear(up for debate, I know, but relatively, it's good stuff), they have been responsible for sponsoring some of the best ski movies ever made, and to be perfectly honest, I'm wondering why you don't like them so much. So maybe they've got a guy somewhere in an office that is slightly disconnected from the youth of today that are "blindly" buying his shit. "The Man" as you call it. But you can't deny the positive effect that Oakley has had on our industry, by getting guys like JP Auclair, T-Hall, Ant B, etc. out into the mainstream of sports.
And they sponsor plenty of big mountain riders. Not everyone they hook up is a little 12-year-old prodigy camo-wearing baggy-clothes "steeeezer".
And if you are gonna be such a dirty hippy, please, take the time and find your roots:
