Whatever the assholes in this thread say, Tucker was very good and he did bring something different to skiing. Clearly thats why you guys didn't like him. For such a group of people that claim to love the free part of free skiing, your view of what is acceptable and what is not is very narrow.
That having been said, why now? He has been training all summer on his private backyard setup, clearly with the olympics in mind and no matter what, he had a good shot at making the team. I gotta say that if he didn't get hurt, I gotta wonder if he tested positive for roids. Seeing as he is jacked and, according to his twitter, got tested on October 8th, the timeline matches up.
I have no information to support this but the sudden nature of the decision after he put in all this work makes me curious. Maybe Dumont is next.
