This has to be one of the dumbest, loaded opinions that I have read in a long while. I'm sure that most people will agree that they'd rather have job security, be able to provide for their families, and not have to struggle to make ends meet than to be able to board a few more days out of the week.
As for the comment of people with minimal riding skills, not everyone starts out at T Rice's current skill level. All people start out as beginners with little to no knowledge and they progress.

Funny about the "true riders" piece in the original post. To consider yourself a "true rider" yet get all butt-hurt over a measly article...
