...And Joey Bast. He was pretty "cool guy"

I'll leave this here:

Where the fuck is Scott Johnston? The list is pretty "cool guy" heavy, but come on, where are like likes of Israel forbes and ron whaley? I'm pretty sure, as an NHS alumni, Rothdigga will agree.

Agreed about Israel.  I'm guessing the guy who did this put Whaley as a combo 90's/2000's and left him off for that reason.  SJ would have been great.  Dudes like Ben Liversedge and others would have been fun too, but that's what lists like this are for.  To create conversation.

I actually just finished working on a bracket voting one like this (coincidentally) to put up on THE BOARDR site.  Meronek is putting the finishing touches on it now.  It's CRAZY skateboarders.  Should be fun.  I only picked 16 of them so there's a TON I left off that as well, but it should be fun to do.  I'll post when Rob finishes it up.

I still see Israel Forbes around town on occasion and that dude is still fucked up good at skating. Master of the late shove. And of course Ron never stopped ripping either.

Should be more talk about Henry Sanchez, he should win it all just off of Tim and Henry's Pack of Lies. Pretty sure that part has the most legit NBD's in it.

i assume the seeding is completely arbitrary? (as in: no way could henry be the 64th most qualified for the list)

that's right, then the site randomly generated the matchups

90s is super tough to judge because skating changed so much from early 90s to mid 90s...this is a sick idea....

Matt reason vs Steven Cales and Chris Keefe vs Joey Bast are prob the toughest to call. And where is Ben Liversedge?

I believe it was stated somewhere that they didn't include skaters that had passed so as not to bias the outcome.

I went with Kareem too because SLB dipped out of view for a fair while.
