Yeah, evidently the IOC has made all of the companies drop the profiles of Olympic riders. Shaun White isn't on Burton right now. I guess they threatened to not allow the athletes to compete or something like that,. Because if I was Burton or any other company, I would have told them to fuck off.

Wow that is total BS. I cannot believe they had the nerve to ask that and that the companies agreed. I would have just said F off and told them to sue me, then just provide my rider with versions of their board without logos.

They're lucky to even be allowed to keep their base graphics.

Anyone see the NeverSummer board? I think it was the guy from Holland riding it.

Doesn't look like they have any problem with the skiers having logos on their skis top and bottom....

I came across this on the Burton website:
What the Wednesday - Something is happening in Canada in Now Read This | Burton Snowboards Community

It looks like the IOC warned all the major sponsors to back out of the games. I'm sure we'll get more details soon enough.

That really sucks. Wasn't one of the guys from Burton basically advertising when he finished both of his runs? I think that was Peetu Piironen, but I'm not sure if I remember correctly.
