Well first of all. This is the most rediculous thing I've ever heard in my life. If any of you guys had even a millimeter of a clue I know for a fact this insane little thought wouldn't even creep into the tiny little brains of yours.
So if you have all of these people all figured out and you have come to the conclusion that what they contribute to their employer is less than what you think they are worth...why haven't you done what they've done or made the money that they have? Because you live in wisconsin? Because you don't know brad fayfield? Because you haven't won a local competition or even a proffessional competition? Because you aren't sponsored by Oakley?
Well any of these proffessional athletes you are talking about HAVE moved out of wisconsin, they DO know Brad Fayfield, they HAVE won minor AND major competitions and they ARE sponsored by Oakley. All because they are good at what they do.
The reason that you are not 'Pro' is because this is how you think; 'If I can do a switch unnatural misty 1260 to rail slide with tanner style, I should be worth 500 000 dollars and the most famous peerson in the world' But everybody is soon to find out that you are a dick. And that you are a pimple faced 300 lb douch bag. Not the most marketable material. Which leads me to the real point.
I know this might be an impossible concept to wrap your little pea brains around...since you are so victim to it. But, the ski industry is a marketing strategy. These 'pros' exist solely to sell a product, and that, they all do very well in one way or another. The only person that has the right to make the descision whether a pro athlete is overrated or not, is the man that signs his/her cheque. For every one of you that thinks they are 'sick enough' to bark their big mouth about Dash not being 'sick enough' there is 150 more kids willing to bark about how sick he is! Dash has a specific style that appeals to a specific market, not neccessarily JUST his skiing, but he has a look and personality that a lot of people like. That sells product. How much product do YOU sell?
The bottom line is, this is a VERY small little sport we are in. And every single marketing tool that may appeal our sport and it's products to some segment of the world is a major bonus. So to sit here and listen to people like you sitting behind your computer with your mouse up your ass and a mountain of balled up kleenex next to you complain about someone being overrated makes me sick.
Everybody has their own magic...and thats what keeps their cheques rollin in.
In conclusion, grab the mouse cord and remove mouse from anus, get a girlfriend and throw the kleenex out, move out of wisconsin, be a cool guy, meet some people and show them your switch unnatural misty 1260 to rail slide with tanner style, then you too will be overrated, underpaid and will HAVE A LIFE!
If I can't do it homey, it can't be done. I'ma let the champagne bottle pop ima take it to the top fo sho ima make it hot.
Trouble maker whaaaat!!!
