The FIS can eat a dick. I'm with Terje on the FIS oversight on snowboarding in the Olympics.

Olympics needs snowboarding snowboarding doesn't need the Olympics. While everyones glued to the TV jerking off over quadruple aerial acrobatics that look like shit on a crappy jump I'll be riding not giving a fuck as usual.

If you read the article, it actually talks about how the IOC, TTR and FIS are talking and thinking of incorporating the big snowboarding events, TTR world tour, Dew Tour and X-games into qualifiers.

If anything, I think Terje's boycott and actions are paving the way for future riders. Their voices and concerns are being heard.

Where you been chief the FIS fucking screwed everyone else again and won out. No TTR, Doosh Tour, or Energy Drink Wars as prequalifiers.

This is true, I think more non-snowboarders are interested in watching snowboarding events at the Olympics then actual riders.
