I can see how MM would be frustrated, but grow up man and show some class. I always thought he was a pretty decent dude but he comes off as a total douche in this video. Who knows if it was out of context or just a bias edit though...

Maybe they actually let their riders have some independence but I find it hard to believe that they'd let their golden goose's image tarnish too much, particularly from a teammate.
It's not like McMorris couldn't go to any other company, or surpass white as the "golden goose"

Please. I would give one to one odds that this trash talking was set up by Burton to make the XGames more interesting. Nothing like a little drama to get viewers and have Sal mention it 100,000 times through the weekend.

Yep, that's happened in other sports and in some it's even gotten to the point of the whole "sport" revolving around the fake drama (Example: Super Steroid "You Did What With Mah Gurl?" Cage Fighting, or whatever it's called.)

I wonder if snowboarding could become like THAT someday...

Hopefully not.

LOL!

He is going to be the first guy to get 100 in slopestyle AND suepr pipe in the same x games, all thanks to his patented grabs and hand drags.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

Pro wrestling isn't a sport and MMA isn't pro wrestling. That post made you look like a fucking moron.

Shaun White is worth more than the entire rest of the Burton team put together from a pure dollars standpoint. McMorris has decent marketability but White's Olympic credentials is what makes him worth mainstream $$ to Burton. Love him or hate him, that's a fact and no other rider brings that kind of mainstream interest to Burton.

McMorris could probably go to K2/Ride, Salomon or any of the other teams that can sling contracts similar to what he has now but I don't think he'd ever make as much money as if he stayed with Burton global.

The UFC has a contract with Fox now and has major promotional deals in most major first world countries. You sound like a moron. Good job.

Nope you are a moron. The UFC is a massive enterprise. I'd argue from a pure dollar standpoint it makes more than 90% of snowboard companies.
