Jamie Thomas Appreciation Thread
« on: July 11, 2007, 03:37:15 PM »
Ok, i get it, everyone here fucking hates JT. But are you overlooking his past achievements? He's done a lot for the progression of skateboarding..well, the progression of rails and gaps. I've skated with the guy in the past and he's always been really nice and he's given me a few boards when mine were shit-canned. He's not a bad guy at all.

Sure his business practices are a little janky, but think about it, if you were trying to hold down 3 or 4 brands and also skate pro wouldn't you make some mistakes too?

Anyone on my side or am i going to be the victim of a slap-wide ignore?

I don't hate JT. Hell, I've posted a couple of times how I may now actually buy something from BlackBox.

I hate Jaime! I can't come up with a solid reason why but I hate him. I'm gonna smash him next time for breathing and just living.

However, if it all of a sudden becomes cool to back Jaime than I'm 100% behind him.

No hate here, either. I disagree with him on plenty of shit but that has nothing to do with liking or not liking him. I respect him completely, but I like debating and all that.

jamie is a normal person like the rest of us. he eats, he sleeps, he breathes, and he skates, i can understand giving him a little shit here and there(when it is called for) but it seems like people are just hating on him just for the sake of hating him

NO it's not! We have our reasons!

Just ask what's his name?

Welcome To Hell....Who can't appreciate that video. It changed a certain aspect of skateboarding forever.

I do disagree with some of his business practices and his Rules but at the end of the day they are his and not mine.

"The guy is human and needs to be loved, just like every one does..."  ;)Seriously, his business practices are on par or better than a lot of companies and personally, he's a nice guy. People like to watch you rise to the top but they love watching you fall.

I got nothing but respect for the guy.  The guy rips.  Even though he didn't respect a locals spot(which is why I think most msg board dweebs hate him), I'm sure everyone here isn't perfect and has done something to be an asshole at one time or another.  I'm pretty sure though that he wouldn't get this much hate if he wasn't Christian or whatever he believes in.  But whatever, all the hate some guys type, those turkey ass suckers wouldn't say to his face.  Barefoot 50-50's and huge ass rails while everyone was still skating curbs.

in the last 10 to 15 years...he's made more of an impact in skating than anyone....

yeah...man..he's got some bad business practices like paying for team riders surgeries....hiring skaters who need jobs.....actually taking care of shit....

I don't have a problem with him at all. I was a big Zero fan as a kid and I've always enjoyed his skating. I'm glad a skateboarder who actually seems to care for skateboarding is making a bussiness for himself.

Welcome To Hell


Dying To Live


Chomp On This


New Blood


Misled Youth


I think Welcome To Hell is his best part, definitely one of the all-time best videos in general, but I think Mislead Youth is my favorite, because it seems like he was having a lot of fun just cruising around doing what he loves. Chomp and all the rest are classics too.

I'm going with Chomp. "Hoody hoo! Knuckle up for the loot!" The part stands out because it's not the typical JT part. I cite the kickflip footplant ender along with Master P soundtrack.

I hate JT and I would NEVER have the balls to be the only person on here defending him for months and months before he actually showed up on here and had everyone suddenly turn around and jump on his nuts.

Nope. No way.

That would mean I think for myself. Wouldn't want THAT, now.

If you can't respect Jamie's 'Welcome to Hell' part or 'Misled Youth' part, you need to get the fuck out of skateboarding.
