But, they'll get nothing.

I wish snowboarders would just boycott the Olympics. The Olympics want them there because that's what people want to see, but they don't really want them there. They want them to compete and then disappear so they can highlight the "traditional" sports that they want to push.
The womens hockey team apologized and so did Scotty Lago, what makes his apology less meaningful that theirs? If the IOC thinks this poorly of snowboarders they shouldn't have added the sport in the first place.


Terje was right.

He furthered the world's view that all Americans actually behave like this. He's a representer of a country. He should behaving more respectfully, not like white trash.

The IOC to kick him out of Vancouver? Pretty good punishment in my opinion. Knock 'em hard the first time so other stupid people won't follow in his footsteps, and he won't do it again.
That's right. He deserved the punishment, taking funny pictures is alright but this photo was disrespectful. Lago was awesome at the olympics, Snowboard - Olympic Snowboard Half-Pipe Videos & Photos | Olympic.org his performance was really neat, but I think the photo was offensive.

Why do you continue to link pages to olympics.org? Work for them? You keep reviving old dead threads too.

One more thread with a link to Olympic.org and I am just going to ban you. Consider it your courtesy warning...
