I think its funny how whenever posters here benefit in some way, its ok to sell out. Nike, Converse, Adidas in skateboarding? I can wear those, so they aren't sketchy corporate influences. A skateboarding contest in the olympics that I'll never be in and don't have to watch? This is bullshit! Skateboarding needs to get more raw!
If you look down at your feet and see Nike, Cons, or adidas on your feet, then shut the fuck up about the olympics you greedy hypocrite. Hold yourself to the standard you hold others to.

Don't forget Vans.

I don't understand what would be so bad about skateboarding in the Olympics. There would be strange rules to conform to and marijuana would be a problem, but it would probably make me want to watch the Olympics more than I already do.

It would only be a complete non failure if it was a halfpipe event, and even then it would contain the same 10 people no one gives a shit about during x games vert.


And fuck Shaun White.

Roots is what matters. If Lakai had those numbers it wouldn't change them either.  Vans was releasing pro skate shoes when skating was at its lowest points. The others got in when it was profitable for them to do so.
If it's just roots that matter, then Nike should be in the clear since there's a pair of illustrated swooshes on the first issue of Thrasher. Anyway, Vans isn't the same company that it was... the roots are only in the name. It'd be like buying a World deck because you appreciate what Rocco did in the industry.

I don't really dig the shoe argument so much because there are two things all skate shoe companies have in common:
1. They pay skaters.
2. They're made in China.

Yep.  And Adidas has been here since the mid-90s.  It's pretty hard to find a quality shoe company that isn't a bit dirty in some way.  That's just how they do business.

As for skating in the Olympics- don't care.  At all.  It has absolutely zero effect on what I get out of skating.

All the obvious picks for the dudes who'd be in it- do any of you watch these dudes ever?  When was the last time someone was like, "Fuck yeah, Lincoln Ueda!"  Yeah.  Never.

I get what you are saying Gipper, but hasn't Adidas been supprting skating for a couple of decades by paying Mark Gonzales? More of a question than a statement. Not sure if everyone would be hating on this if it was Dill pushing for the olympics. I personally think it would be a shockingly bad idea but I physically have zero influence on the outcome of this. Maybe if it gets in and, like previously stated in other posts, only kooks and Brazilians enter and doesn't get watched they would drop it just as quick.

we most definitely would be hating, perhaps even more

you?ve probably noticed that nearly every camera angle includes the Adidas logo. That?s because Adidas is paying US$122 million to ?sponsor? the Games, in an effort to show the world that Adidas is a company that values the Olympic ideals of international friendship and cooperation.
But Adidas is refusing stand for those values. For less than 2% of the cost of its sponsorship, Adidas could do right by thousands of workers who were illegally denied severance when their factory was unexpectedly shut down. Now we?re partnering with the Clean Clothes Campaign to hold Adidas accountable.

Freestyle would make a comeback, and they would skate the olympic basketball courts until the team came to practice they'd be all "YO, WE'RE TRYNA PLAY A GAME HERE", then the second round would be in the parking lot.

now this i would watch.
Man the long board truck thing killed indy for me. I was willing to set aside the racism, but long boarding, gtfo... - DH

The only type of skating fit for the Olympics is the Death Joust a la Thrashin.

I want this to happen just so that there will be news articles about how every participant is disqualified because they failed the drug test.

Imagine if this had caught on? @ 1:48 Just picture 100 people doing this together.

Edit: Ha! I just saw this in the comments for this video (all of them are hilarious) and I have to wonder, this sounds an awful lot like HATE! she's describing...

Yes, my husband's skateboard. He doesn't have a paper route, but he does have a 10-year military career in progress and a successful side business of art for skateboards. Obviously not as awesome as a paper route.

of course she wants skateboarding in the olympics, because she knows she can dominate vert and make more money and get more fame.

You guys know how mutch pussy every athlete gets? This article is amazing. http://espn.go.com/olympics/summer/2012/story/_/id/8133052/athletes-spill-details-dirty-secrets-olympic-village-espn-magazine

Holy fuck, if I was a top tier pro skater I would be pushing for the Olympics just to go fuck the whole Scandinavian volleyball team or whatever.
example. i cant cast a spelll or love potion on a girl and she falls total in love for me
but i can show a girl my tv youtube clip on my or her phone. but there's a difference ok

I want to see Antwuan on Olympics..Imagine the interviews..

I'd watch that, because he'd completely tarnish the olympic bullshit. Hell I wanna see the whole Shake Junt crew in the olympics. Imagine, there are 6 year old chinese kids who have been selected to train for the rest of their life's for gymnastics of swimming or whatever, and then there'd be guys like Neen, Siinner, and Dollin ruining the olympic village, partying and creating hijinks, only to not compete because tested positively for weed along with everyone else.

Hahaha!  She showed me that video, but I didn't know about the comments.  I'm blessed with a wife that totally supports skateboarding and urges me to get out there more than I already do.  We've been having a difference of opinion on helmets and skateboarding in regards to our future potential children.  Any of you Slap parents have this conversation with your spouses?
