On page 4 I only see the one he is charged with??? All of the boxes on the bottom are for checking which violation the person has made on that arrest, not necessarily that all of those he has had. Only the boxes checked are the ones he is charged with on just that arrest, not his entire record. Am I missing something?

Yep. Shaun White and Burton...reminding everyone, everywhere why riders should continue to get disrespected at resorts. When I first read the article I thought Burton was going to punt White the same way that Dell punted the "Your getting a Dell, Duuuude!!!" guy. Then after a few seconds I realized that Burton will try and milk the "bad boy" image and sell even more crap. Let's see if we start seeing Burton ads where a fire extinguisher is somehow introduced into them...

I don't understand why everyone always loves to hate.
Seriously, the guy's 21. There's plenty of older people that would do this kind of sh__T.
He's probably just having some fun.

Yeah, Okay, blah blah blah, he's in the media, blah blah setting example for kids, blah blah, but really....does it matter?

Had SOME skier done this, noone would have even given this a second glance.

Hate feels good; really, really good.

We have had this "good guy" image crammed down our throats by the media and even by White himself through a plethora of interviews in snowboard mags for a long fucking time. Everyone wants their kids to be the next "Shaun White" for fuck sakes. Now everyone (including Mr. White himself) can see that he really IS just like us; prone to making very STUPID choices. Does it mean at the end of the day Shaun White, the man, is hated? No, of course not. Shaun White, the IMAGE, is what compells this mockery. All these companies (Yep, American Express, etc) will surely stand up for his behaviour...okay, so they won't; if the fuck-up had been any larger the Suits over there would be getting squirley. Burton will exploit that behaviour for their own means and you know it, too. They are not going to stand up for Shaun White, the man. They are going to continue to exploit Shaun White, the image.

Hate in snowboarding exists because the SPIRIT of snowboarding is being destroyed by image and marketting. Lots of riders are coming into the fold being concerned about what they are wearing and how they are percieved that they have forgotten why they are there in the first place. Snowboard mags give the perception that snowboarding is all about rails and jumps; to do otherwise means you are a loser (perhaps it could be that street and park features destroy boards much more rapidly meaning more sales of new equipment, leading to even more dollars in advertisement sales....hmmmmmm). We can thank the opportunists out there like Burton, American Express, Shaun White, MFM, yadayadayada for that.

It is my belief that to SAVE snowboarding, we need to HATE that which would serve to distort what riding is all about. Let's get back to the basics, dump the media and exploitive large manufacturers and actually GO HAVE SOME FUN.

EDIT: damn you slaughter, beat me to it.

shaun white marketability is decreasing. he used to be the kid who would beat everyone all the time. now a lot more riders are on par with him and can compete at the same level. when he stops winning is when he gets dumped by the corporate world. but the burtons and volcoms of the world won't dump him. just like they didn't dump terje or keir dillon.

Yeah, you are right. Makes me wonder how Shaun White will handle being moved out of the spotlight. I read one interview in which he mentions that his parents even took out a second mortgage on their house when he was a bopper so he could put all his effort into snowboarding. They let him miss school to further his goal (but by the sound of things, it was more his parent's goal, not his). He was raised to compete by both his parents and Burton. He is a train wreck waiting to happen in an ever saturating "sport" where it is more important to beat out your "opponents" to be #1.

How have we come from standing on the top of a mountain, staring out at a frozen white ocean and feeling a gentle breeze to the McDonald's culture of bandanas and multi-million dollar parks with "street" features? Fuck you, Burton!

I don't mean to defend Burton, I'm hardly a fanboy. I do think they make good products though, and anything I own by burton, I bought at about 25% of the retail price.
So, having said that...

I don't know if blaming Burton for the park features on the slopes is appropriate. Don't get me wrong, but I'm thinking thinking that a lot of it came from a large influence from skateboarding. It seems like it was the next logical step for the sport.
Now, yes, of course, if you must blame a corporation, you may as well blame all of them. Especially considering that there are some snowboarding companies that make park-specific products only.

With regards to making the park features with the intent of destroying the boards quicker to raise throughput of board sales... in my (humble) opinion, that's a bit... uhm...whats the word...conspiracy-uh..-like.

Just my two cent. Don't even know if it's worth the 2 cents since I'm just a beginner in the sport .
