One Last Rant -- X Games
I have my opinions on everything mentioned on this site about this year's X games with Tanner and Simon and Booing, but in this thread I just want to point out one more thing that is even more frustrating than everything else mentioned:
Why is Mike Douglas allowed to be a judge determining medals when he is the Salomon Team manager. It is poor sportsmanship every time he votes for one of his athletes, and every time he votes against them I feel like he thinks he has to do so. Did anyone else see the look on Jacob Wester's face when Mike Douglas voted against him in favor of Charles Gagnier? Jacob must have thought it was such a joke, and of course he would vote in favor of Charles.
Mike Douglas is a great guy and a true embassador to the sport, but it is a conflict on interests to have him as a judge every year when each of the contests he is either judging or commenting on include Salomon Athletes. It is growing old listening to him build up each one of "his" own athletes on Salomon. Maybe this is far-fetched, but I am over it. Get some one else.
Oh, and fire Sal Masakela, or whatever that dude's name it -- he should not be the face of the X games.
...gagnier's sw 12 octo was smoother than jacob's kango. you didn't see him talking about gagnier like that when he was against jon.
RIP HIGH NORTH YOU CHANGED MY LIFE.

Simon is also a Salomon athlete?
He obviously didn't pick Simon over Jon
i thought he judged fairly.
simon and charles=both salomon athletes
simon and charles=both didnt win
that whole 4 person big air shit is stupid anyways
simon can always win slope too
I wanna go skiing
exactly why he said something like or he feels he has to vote against so it doesnt look biased. i thought the big air judging was totally whack btw, fucking 50% by people? you realize that could be dumb rich girls who could happen to be fipping channels and being like ooh hes hoot zomg im gonna text for him.
STUPID. i mean i understand that it was also a test to see how much interest tehre is in big air, but come on, this is not american idol...
They might listen if you didnt sound like an illegal alien taking night classes. And you didnt attack there employees A.K.A. Sal, like that.
