Man, if someone I loved fell off the wagon & started making questionable decisions while looking as haunted & unhealthy as MJ has suddenly started looking, I'd hope they'd get more compassion than Slap is showing him right now. The alcoholic arm steeze is even back, for chrissake... our dude needs help.

I think i can go the rest of my life without hearing Marc talk ever again, how many times is he going to keep patting himself on the back.

Just Shut up and Skate!

  You guys remember his thrasher interview?  -   Mark has this full persona that he's been running for years but I think its lost it's heart and it's essence . So you get 'mark-shell' for the interview.  ^That skating was not the 'good side' of what he has to offer.

It'd be oddly rad if Marc just went awol and signed with all these bogus sponsors like RDS and what not. Like also get on Moutain Dew and just be the total opposite person that we all perceived him to be. At least he'd get fucking paid for all of it.

 It might help if he grew out his pony tail and strapped it super tight, to pull his face together a  bit.

Marc Speaks!

After a couple of kids started arguing in his comments initially started by one of them calling him a sellout.

Interesting. I am surprised they "asked him to leave" when Carroll seemed pretty heated they were going to have to sit on his shoes because he left with no notice. Based on Marc's track record I'm not buying it. He may have been asked to leave Chocolate after leaving Lakai but highly doubt they asked him to leave Lakai after producing another run of his shoes
Mike-Mo is going to be one of the best if not the best skater of his generation. Barring some kind of career ending injury or drug addiction.

I don't know, think about it.  If you were asked to leave a sponsor (or find another sponsor), but then they asked that you NOT leave until they sell all your shoes, I can see where you'd be a bit pissed and have the motivation to just up and leave on your own terms.

Agreed. Imagine if a job did that to you. "Yeah, so we want you to find another job but we want you to stay so we can make a little more money off of you with your product."

They could not re-new his contract, they wanted to sell off remaining orders before he announced he left. Marc instead decided to not tell them about Adidas, and was announced when they had a shitload of his product remaining. No one is really in the clear here, if Lakai knew they couldn't afford to keep him, they shouldn't of ordered more of his shoes, then tried to get him to stay without a contract. Marc should of just outright told them he was going to Adidas, and he couldn't wait. Neither party looks good.

The best thing about all this shit, is that Rick and Mike have been out on tours, seemingly doing what they should be doing, skating.

Thanks Marc!

I don't think you know the whole story. After all, Marc's whole life has been a video part. We'll just have to wait and see.

Asking him to leave? Carroll never said that in the jenkem interview I just reread it the other day. Carroll knew Marc was getting offers for years, Lakai matched the offer once before but recently after going through more financial troubles Lakai said we need to cut more pay and we understand at your age if you got more opportunity elsewhere go for it. That's a big difference than what Marc just said.

Reread the jenkem interview again Carroll was specific about how Marc was asked to be phased out of Lakai and how Marc blatantly lied to Carroll. Marc's recent revelation doesn't show a new side of the story it just proves he's a lie in ass hole and Carroll was telling the truth.

Bullshit Adidas is paying Marc less...That's either a lie too or Adidas just cut his pay or changed his contract due to all the recent cluster fuck drama Marc started.

"At some point the bullshit wears thin. You've got ideas, and when you outrun the company and you've got all these ideas and the company can't keep up? It's ridiculous," Marc says. "You just talk to somebody who's willing to do these projects, [someone] who is progressive."

Highly doubt MC asked their biggest name pro to leave

MC didn't ask him leave, but suggested that he leave for his own good...

"It was a sad moment. It sucked for me to have to tell him that, and to have to say, “You should probably take a better offer,” because these motherfuckers are coming at you all crazy."

I guess in MJ's mind that equates to being asked to leave.
