i'm not sure if this qualifies him as being a douche, but he can't ride powder.

Agreed. Terje himself said shaun needs to work on other aspects of his riding, other than just pipe and park.

Frankly I don't like the fact that if you talk to someone who doesnt ride the initially think of shaun white, in fact I'm sick of seeing his face everywhere. Well, I should say the face that's always covered up. He even leaves that retarded mask on during after-contest interviews, the only time he lifts it up is to spit every few seconds before his run.

However, it is his choice not to go to that, I don't know the reasons so I'm not going to speculate, but yeah it would have been nice of him to. I think kids get the idea that if someone is on tv alot, smiling or promoting video games (in the lamest commercial in the world), then the kids think that person is going to be all friendly like that in real life as well.

Think of it this way, SW saved you the trouble of having to explain to your son why you don't want him talking to a D bag. If SW did show up and was acting like a douche, would you really want your son around him, soaking up his idol's behavior like a sponge?

I know your grom was disappointed about not being able to meet SW but it sounds like he did get to meet some quality pros. I hope they do well at the olympics while your son is watching.

Maybe Shawn had a cold and out of respect for the parents and kids decide to avoid giving it to all of them by not showing up to the signing. This is a massive over reaction. The guy did nothing wrong.

While I agree that Shaun White is a douchebag you don't know why he didn't show. Maybe it's in his contract to not appear at signings or fan appearances unless they are held by Burton's PR people. Maybe his Manager didn't know about the autograph signing event and didn't tell him to go. There are lot's of probable reasons as to why he didn't show up.

Also remember this, sure it's cool for celebrities to appease their fans, especially the younger ones and sign an autograph or take a picture. But they don't owe it to you. They don't exist to sign autographs for people and do deserve some privacy and respect for their personal time. I know I don't like it when random people come up to me after I have a killer run through the park and ask for an Autograph.

Haha, alasdair made a post that I quoted but I guess he deleted it. Him using the acronym ITT made me think of that.
