So people on the emerica site have been claiming the baseless speculation from this forum as fact?

He just wants to look like Jesus. Give the guy a break.

His own team talks about it, and Cole admitted he started dressing like a an 80's hair band reject because Jamie send him a box of a cloths and told him how to dress.

Cervantes said that Thomas made him skate even though he didn't want too because he was tired and that jamie said what tricks to do, but he didn't really seem to think it was a bad thing...

its common knowledge hes a prick. the smart thing to do about it would be stop purchasing anything related to him. fallen, zero, mystery and the other 11 companys that look the same.

Do former riders apply for unemployment when they get kicked off? That would be assuming that companies pay unemployment insurance.

HAHA, shit, everyone knows Thomas is a dickhead. Look how many riders have come and gone on Zero over the last ten years.

Dave Carnie also called him out for photoshopping hankerchiefs and other gay bullshit into pictures.

The problem is Jamie Thomas runs zero like a business rather than a skateboard team, but when you face facts zero is a business. I'm sure if your boss thought you wern't pulling your weight they'd tell you to do your job better or suggest where your going wrong. How is that different to him telling skaters what tricks to do?

It is one thing to suggest to someone to try a trick and another to force people to dress different, having magazine photo shop "flair" into photos, forcing people to try tricks until they are to hurt to skate etc....
If I had a boss like that I would call the whistle blower hotline quick.

the problem is that while skateboarding is a business it's also a very differant kind of business because skateboarding does have some artistic qualities that can't be analyzed by a strictly economic analysis. a skateboard company is more like a record label, you can tell the bands/skaters exactly how to sound/skate but if you do they could lose that certain uniqueness that caught your markets eye in the first place. i think the smart business move to do would be to let your skaters be themselves. if you've got the money zero has you can buy the best skaters, have a rad but diverse team, and sell like crazy because now there's something for everybody.

Jamie Thomas is the darkest of men. It seems like he doesn't want a diverse team, like he wants everything uniform so he can corner the market. You know, the market that appeals little kids who dress in all black trenchcoats that carry guns to school, and dream of skullfucking.  

That's crazy if he makes people skate and tells them what tricks they should do. A good TM or boss should motivate skaters, and maybe suggest tricks they think the skater could be capable of. It sounds like he's taking it too far though, if it's true. Whatever let's all just keep speculating how he really is.

I agree with Guile, he seems shady don't buy his stuff

It's true. It's no different than Antihero trying to corner the flannel shirt/Half-Cabs/Burnside market.

Every company has it's image, even if they try to be subtle about it. It's there.

probably because Lopez is OG like Jamie. I doubt jamie would tell someone his own age to dress more "punk"... it's probably easier to tell these naive young kids "look, there's a spot for you on zero, but you gotta dress the part, and bust out huge hammers"

but take into consideration the amount of coverage that keegan and rattray get.

ive seen way more osiris rattray ads than i have zero ratray ads. the only ad i can recollect from keegan is him standing on a motorcycle.
