Ur an idiot. Why do you think sponsors pay their athletes? to represent them. Those ads that cost "tens of thousands of dollars" are to use the athletes to promote their company. Yes the skiers get published because of it but they don't see a dime for being listed in an ad, it's to promote the company. It's the company's choice and created for the companies benefit. Furthermore, as to my knowledge he never broke his contract. what's supposed to happen after it ends? the company just owns the rider forever?
Secondly: pbp "giving him" a whole segment. U arrogant douche bag. How do companies choose which shots go in their movies? by which ones are the best, or rather which ones will make their movie the illest and increase sales. How dare you say they "gave him" that segment. Watch his goddamn season edit, he works his ASS OFF for every single shot you see. He's not getting handouts. It's real easy to criticize but it sucks to see someone who works so hard (injuring themselves this year doing it) and see them get questioned so easily.
finally skiing is a business, when you're barely making enough to ski all season you've gotta look out for yourself. It's not selfish, it's looking out for yourself. You think those big companies with "tens of thousands of dollars" are always putting their athletes before their company? you probably do because you're an idiot. He's a fucking college student trying to have some fun skiing. From the looks of us his attitude he's not looking at skiing as a business even though he should be.Looks like he's in it to have some fun, not make bank bro. anyway long story short ur a douchebag.
