theabortionatorXgames have sucked balls for 10 or 12 years. It's all about the money. They would drop ski slopestyle and replaces it with
if they thought it would get them more money. Xgames is about the money not the sport. Wish there were some bigger core contests. It seems like nobody wants to challenge them. Sure they're much bigger now then the 90s when there were other comps going on but the market is also much larger. If the right people got together and made a legit comp for some of the different sports it'd be fucking awesome.
I mean x games will drop skier cross, bmx dirt then pick them up then drop them. Yet they'll give medals away for video games? Lol.
Xgames are the zumiez of action sports comps.
CrapBanditI would prefer the Xgames sponsor Quidditch over any video game. At least Quidditch involves full body physical activity and some sore of athleticism compared to video games. Society is a fucking joke now; over sensitized, politically correct, emotionally compromised bullshit.
mvttnews flash: not everyone who plays video games is a nerd/non-athletic.
"x games is about money"... well no shit. what company isnt? you think red bull would be sponsoring any athletes if they didnt bring in $$ to the company? money makes the world go round, sad to say it but its true.
i dont think that call of duty necessarily belongs in an "extreme sports" event, but who cares. i think its perfectly reasonable for athletes to be upset about this addition because of their sacrifice. i would honestly rather watch call of duty over any snowmobile event. or all the damn ice skating in the olympics.
