If I recollect correct, these guys are actually masquerading as a skateboard organization, when in fact, they were, prior to their current incarnation, the governing body of competive rollerskating/inline sports competitions.
My hard drive may be glitching on this file recall, but Iím pretty certain these fucks have no business speaking on behalf of skateboarders at all.
We probably owe olí Brinky a collective thank you & a pat on the back for shining the spotlight on these turkeysí mismanagement.
Iím gonna guess they fucked him over personally, or maybe some friends of his & he decided he wasnít having it.
Now if only he can get skating removed from the Olympics altogether, Iíll buy him a steak dinner to go with that back pat.

I wanna play you in a game of SKATE for the right to continue talking shit on me.  You think you got me?

A group that oversees something to do with the Olympics turns out to be shady? This has gotta be a first.

Hahaah Iím the whistleblower. Peep my IG stories. They owe me and others a LOT of money. But thatís nothing compared to the absolute trainwreck the org has become overall and how fucked the people currently running it are being. Way bigger problems. And I likely wonít even get paid at this point for talking but fuck it. Iím going with it. The people need to know.

Weren't there complaints  prior to the olympics that US rollers sport was taking advantage of USAskateboarding for profit/ego.

I'm not surprised if anything "Team USA" related turned out to be shit show at the executive level.

Great work, but maybe don't dilute the important information in your IG stories with a trillion stupid memes?

Skateboarding in the Olympics is a good thing.  It doesn't affect you but it does legitimize something globally that could potentially help more kids start skating.  The more kids/people skate, the better our industry does on a national and global scale. 

Also, I think you're referring to Worldskate which is a global entity that governs all sports performed on skating wheels which certainly applies to skateboarding. 

In general, what happens globally at this level in terms of how they handle skateboarding doesn't really affect your ability to go skate with your friends so I don't know why your panties are in a bunch.

It's not diluted as I have mainstream media hitting me up and the word is spreading ... and you are here talking about it. Leave the publishing and content syndication strategy to the guy who's been doing it professionally for 22 years. Get the info, enjoy the memes and leave the rest to me.

Youíre perfectly entitled to that opinion.
I disagree with you. My opinion is that YOUR opinion is rubbish & you can put it directly back into the dustbin you just hoisted it out of.
And to be clear, I was referring to USARS, which lead the effort as the designated US representative of FIRS.
Just because FIRS claims that ANY roller sports falls under their jurisdiction of oversight does not mean that they deserve the right to call the shots for skateboarders, when, prior to the Olympic push for skateboarding, they never had any association with skateboarding in this (or any?) country at all.
Iíll leave you with an agreement to disagree & a polite Fuck You.

I wanna play you in a game of SKATE for the right to continue talking shit on me.  You think you got me?

Damn. As someone who goes through audits for work , that fucked. Surely there is some potential jail time for some of those breaches. No financial polices ?

How is it good?

For who?

It turns a fruitful culture into a standardized routine, making money for an ethically questionable entity. Just shitty all around. It was terrible to watch also.

I'd rather watch the Rugby 7s if I'm going to watch any Olympic nonsense. Really.

The Olympics are dying in appeal. We don't need it. Skateboarding certainly doesn't need to sweep homeless camps, exploit laborers and whitewash our cities to have a good time.
