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.

as i understand it he was given an out, implied that he wouldn't take it, then took it anyway without saying anything... letting everyone who has been backing him, his team, get blindsided by some shit... the outright loss of a mate, in a way.

for all his posturing like he's some kind of evolved human or whatever, that's pretty shitty handling of a situation that (by the sounds of it) could've been well handled rather easily...

I had a friend who idolised MJ, half read a few whacky books based on pseudo-science mumbo jumbo and started rattling off the ideas as his own (while smoking copious amounts of weed).
He ended up losing absolutely everything and had a short stay in a  nuthouse.

Remember those old A-Team ad contests?  It was like $1,000 bucks if you filmed the same trick in the sequence (same height, length, etc.).  I believe you couldn't be sponsored.  My memory retains so much useless information, I even remember the tricks...

MJ - Switch nosegrind 180 kickflip out
Rodney - Nosemanual 360 flip out
Mayhew - Kickflip nosegrind kickflip out
Thomas - Fakie hardflip, late 180 on a bank (fakie ghetto bird?)

Don't remember Gershons even though he was one of my favorite skaters back then.

Gershon's was that Ron Allen Yoshi Oboyashi one foot ollie thing, i think it was over a pyramid. Someone asked him about in an interview and he said he just wanted to do something totally different

You guys, MJ clearly said it's not about the money. What happened was that MJ came to Carroll with a bunch of ideas and Carroll was like "well we just can't keep up", maybe you should find someone more progressive. MJ's ideas outran the company and the bullshit wore thin.

I think I read he won initially, but then didn't receive the money, since he was on flow for another World company at the time

Found it:




Gershon will always be one of my favorites, super underrated.

He skated our park (from the ad above) randomly for like a month straight, never saying a word, just destroying it, then disappeared and never came back. Him and MJ used to show up in separate Civics, MJ in a black one and Gershon a white one, it was rad.

Chris Cole did Rodney's first trick, the nose manual nollie 3 flip out, then when they found out he was sponsored Rodney did the half cab crook varial heel. Don't think anyone came through on that, though.

I remember Marc's trick was labeled wrong, too. They either said it was regs when it was switch, or vice versa.

Gershon thought the contest was stupid and tried to make it fun with his. No one attempted it, and I think he got the money hah.

A-Team was a weird company.

The only other A-Team ad I remember of anyone collecting on a prize was this guy Andy Westhousing for the nose manual nollie threeflip.

I believe Danny Garcia also did one of those tricks but was denied the prize money because he was on flow from menace at the time

Did anyone catch in the GX video that Jake Johnson did this over a rail in japan, it was super quick and not really film in the best way to see it, a lot of people probably just thought it was a no comply

If the story is so cut and dry according to Marc, I don't understand what the hold up is, unless he is holding out for Thrasher or another magazine.  Is he pissed at Jenkem?  If I was him I would've done the interview ASAP and we would all be done talking about this.

I think Marc should just hold his comments.

I think he feels there is no need to further tarnish Girl/Crail.

Let's be real about it, we know why. He needs time to formulate a way out of this and make himself look better. MJ has been one of my favorite skaters since Maple but the dude is obviously full of shit.

Do I think Carroll's version of events is the "whole story" la Brink? No, of course not. But come on, Marc's been quiet to not further tarnish Crail? I'm sure he'd love people to think that.

In a real way he should just shut up and skate. Every time he addresses the situation he looks like a kook. I'd love to hear Kenny Anderson's take on this.

Thing is, Carroll has never been one to hold his tongue.  He speaks candidly with no bullshit.  He wouldn't have willing put MJ on blast unless it were true.  Shit, he could be sued for slander if it weren't considering the repercussions for any future endeavors that come MJ's way as far as sponsors go.
