Pisses me off. In case anybody doesn't know, the scientific community agrees that milk is absolutely NOT good for you. Not for your bones or anything else. Fuck this shit. Stop exploiting animals

I normally avoid this topic on the interwebs but yes.

Does Cooper Wilt still have a deck out?
Was confused/astounded to learn, YES, he does.
He must have some incriminating photos of Rodney executing a not-fully-wrapped impossible, or something.
I havenít seen footage from dude in so long that I canít remember if I had forgotten about him ever existing, or I thought he had died, THATís how long itís been since heís entered my thoughts.
Either way, that guy seems like heís achieved National Dairy Council status.
Bravo, Mr. Wilt!

Ē The totality of available scientific evidence supports that intake of milk and dairy products contribute to meet nutrient recommendations, and may protect against the most prevalent chronic diseases, whereas very few adverse effects have been reported.Ē

Itís good for you in that it has nutrients, and drinking it has no negative side effects.  If youíre going to claim something about the scientific consensus, it helps to actually check the scientific consensus.

Marc Johnson is in that weird state where you can't say he's milking it but he's not putting out any footage either.

MJ literally started his own brand and regardless how you feel about it, it has nothing to do with milking it. He is doing his own shit. Itís the antithesis of milking it.

I said he wasn't milking it. He's also not all that you say, sure he started his brand, he started it and didn't even tried to make a proper team or put out some footage to rep it, like it or not he's riding his legacy just like someone who's milking it, difference is he's went solo in using his fame instead of just taking some paychecks and not doing anything.

My take is Crail was established partly because after seeing Hensley & SLB prematurely retired on Plan B they didn't want the same fate. Sadly it seems they became the polar opposite where there is no need to be productive with cutting edge new footage and your bloard will still run just off your legacy alone.

Crail must have a tenure track or is laundering money through these guys. 

Thereís a vast difference between Justin Eldridge having a board and MJ not having a board.    I would still buy MJ shit because he was my favorite skater, is a top 5 skaters, and was consistently awesome for 20 something years.   A bunch fit in that category.   People like them and want to support them.    Eldridge was a blip on the radar, lasted about as long as a Scott Kane, but sponsored up smartly enough that heís still in the industry

MJ is either #5 or #6 for me. When he parted ways with Chocolate, I snatched up every MJ Chocolate deck I could find. Some are cooler than others, but just to have them is enough.

He had a Nina Simone board somewhat recently.    Just like she would have wanted

I thought Rick Howard actually had a deck with the phrase "milking it" on it and maybe an utter or pail of milk or something like that?  Anyone remember?  Anyone post it on the previous page which I'm too lazy to click on?

If MJ had decks that were pressed in the US (or Canada/Europe I suppose) I would exclusively skate his shit.  He's one of my favorites, if not my favorite.  Doesn't even matter to me if he's producing footage honestly.

If they don't wanna be accused of milking it and make 100k a year which isn't even that much they better start working like it's the 1920's.

Jordan hasn't played ball in decades but people still love repping his products.
If the boards sell why not?
I think Ed still having a board on toy, rick Howard on girl, Jamie Thomas on zero, Cardiel anti hero etc all makes sense because they did so much for those companies and had a lasting impact that must still move product.

Yeah maybe but I feel like companies are generally pretty quick to let people go if their boards stop selling.

Crob, its time too move on. Hes established himself in a different way now. No hate its just a hard milk. If youre like cardiel, lance or grosso obviously thats like jordan status and you should have a board forever but crob isnt in the boat.

Crob having a board is just Craig milking his notoriety as a podcast host (albeit, a pretty shitty one) and social media presence. Crob would probably be the first person to tell you he's retired.
