Wouldn't bother me to call one of our sponsored riders a douche, especially in this instance, because no matter how you slice it, saying "By the way I met Jonny Omara when i was 10 what a prick he was glad that day at perris ended his career..." is a very douchey thing to say. Calling a rider a douche is no big deal when deserved and I have said worse to sponsored riders to their faces.
I'm not a guy who babies riders to their face and grumbles behind their back. More people need to be up front with riders to their faces, especially those involved in their racing.
But let's not change the subject, that was a fucked up thing to say and since you know who it is an we supposedly sponsor him, why not tell everyone his name?
or maybe because he was such a douche, no one wants to state who he really is?
As for the original topic, which I stayed out of until douchey showed up, Tyler can do what he wants and I always liked Tyler. I was impressed with him back when he was on Plano and that memory is what has stuck with me.
I think what many are trying to say about how they feel is that they like what Tyler was, but not what he's become.
I am not a fan of his "gangster" persona, but that is his choice. If it's all an act, then it's an act...but then that also makes him a poser, doesn't it?
