Once again, he probably didnt get to choose man, hes a teenager, so they did a drama show. Fucking girls and gays dude gobble that shit down like dick. They couldnt do a drama show with rob and big, they are goofy fucks, so they made a funny show. Sheckler has divorced parents, is a teenager, and has little brothers that obviously look up to him, perfect combo to make millions on a show.
And as for the skating community not like him, its like shawn white, all the snowboarders i have ever met in my life hate him, its the same concept. Sheckler probably doesn't even care, his close friends like him, probably most of his endorsements LOVE him since hes on national TV that is watched by trend following fucks. I bet his endorsements get SO much money and business from life of ryan, which means more money for sheckler. Sheckler is just sitting in his HUGE house right now, with millions of dollars in the bank, giving everyone the finger, because in the end, hes got mad money, close friends and family, and what else do you need? little 14 year old punk skaters who think hes a bitch? Fuck know, and he probably could careless.
Simple business and economics kids, get learned.
As for him being cocky, get into his shoes and be him. You would be cocky too, end of discussion. Calling someone who is a pro, a very good pro, who makes more money then your mommy and daddy ever will, a cocky person is just stupid. He has the right to be cocky and frankly, you don't really have a right to call him out on that, because i can guarantee you are not at the level he is at in skating, in anything, period. So zip the lid, no one cares.
