You do know that Burton is still privately owned right?

Thing is, I don't really disagree with you. There's a couple Burton boards that I would love to have, but for the most part I have others on my want list.

What gets to me are riders that call others "fan boys" and then proceed to bash the shit out of the brand they are fanboying. You are the opposite extreme which makes you no better than the very fanboys you bash.

You want to convince people to buy a non Burton board? Then tell them why the board in question isn't the ideal choice. That will get you much further in your anti-Burton agenda.
