New Freeze sie+transworld walkout
Freeze just got a new site. And the top 3 people at Transworld Skateboarding just had a walk-out claiming it was too mainstream with the ads they were running. Wonder if snowboarding will follow.
funkin sick eh. the site that is.
I am a drinker with skiing problems.

Wait... the top three people in Transworld walked out? If they're the top people, who are they protesting? Transworld Media or Time4 Media?

Protesting Transworld media but it stems al the way up to Time4 and even higher to Primedia and AOL. Mostly Time4 though. Check the movies section on the new freeze site. New trailor there also.
so who is protestiong what???
they are protesting the new ski site?
It would seem that the walkout is in protest of the direction that AOL and Time4 are taking the Transworld Media Group. If, of course, any of this is true. New Freeze site looks nice, still has the same lack of content though. Didn't notice any particularly bad advertising, but I wasn't looking.

Thats exactly why they are walking out. And I know for a fact its true. I work for high ups in the Primedia empire and they offered me a job at Oceanside. But its all the guys at the Transworld Skateboarding Mag, not Freeze! But it makes you wonder if the snowboard staff would ever walk out if they got some ski ads.
what did these ads consist of that made them so pissed?
Abba Zabba, you my only friend
go to www.sacklunch.com for inside poop on this. It's a cool site run by insiders who aren't afraid to talk shit about the reality of the action sports industry.
deoderant ads, anti drug ads, ollie pop bubble gum, shampoo ads...etc.....
