Please. I would give one to one odds that this trash talking was set up by Burton to make the XGames more interesting. Nothing like a little drama to get viewers and have Sal mention it 100,000 times through the weekend.
Yep, that's happened in other sports and in some it's even gotten to the point of the whole "sport" revolving around the fake drama (Example: Super Steroid "You Did What With Mah Gurl?" Cage Fighting, or whatever it's called.
I wonder if snowboarding could become like THAT someday...
