was shaun white always hated?

i dont remember. did people start the SW hate after finding out he had his own private pipe? or the fact that he drives a lambo? can't be lambo cuz skier jon olsson drives a lambo too and no one hates him.

or is it cuz SW makes a ton of money? but skater ryan sheckler also made tons of $ and had his own tv show. so does tony hawk with his video games but i dont recall massive hate towards these skaters.

but somehow everyone seems to be on the SW hate bandwagon. also the hate seems to only come from other snowboarders. the general public loves SW.

For me while I don't hate SW one of buddy's had met him and said hes a pretty big douche and extremely cocky....Well, to be honest I probably would be also if I was that good its always tough for me to support someone I view as a douche outside the sport..Also him branching out to other sports annoys me a little as I feel like hes just riding his moment from snowboarding to other sports and its just something on the side for me...Lastly...Hes too skater for me, makes me hate him...personal preference...I realize all these reasons are stupid but disliking anyone is...so there it is

There are two things I can't help but notice when watching snowboard comps, 1) The level of riding is ridiculous now-a-days, and 2) Shaun White is a douche.

When I had to un-mute the TV to see whether the rider in the pipe was a girl or not.

Come on man humor me.. You gotta admit he does kind of look like a chick when he's out there. Can't hate too much though he's a beast in the half pipe.
