The “Anonymous Letter”*

Chris Roach Goes In

* Ed: WE have no idea if the author of the letter is ex, current or not a Burton employee at all. In fact, we believe it may have been written by the big man himself.

        Well, Drake says all kinds of shit he feels. Is he soft?

        Kidding broseph, this was a soft episode though. It’s no reflection on your personal softness. You could be the Sleep Number bed of News Hosts.

    An open letter to Stanley Leveille says:

    Dear Stan

    There is a growing group of voices gaining volume and strength and it’s time to listen. We’re here to tell you what no one else will. You need to get way more angry in these like you did in Hateline. Just get some subject and shout like a little kid or something. You haven’t even talked angrily about penises for like six months now. Do something before it’s too late.

    Sincerely, Snowboarding

    Well put, Justin. I’m glad you didn’t jump on the fuck Burton bandwagon and gave an honest opinion. I love that people are pointing fingers at Burton just because they can’t figure out where else to point them. Yeah, Knowbuddy’s getting dropped sucks (My heart goes out to the boys – you guys will see it was for the better after time) But it is by no means a reason for the world to turn upside down and start blaming a company for snowboarding’s issues. Why is everyone looking at Burton for a solution to a problem. Is there even really a problem or are we manifesting the idea that something is wrong when really this is just part of the “life cycle” of snowboarding? Instead of pointing fingers at Burton or the other corporate companies which make up a large percentage of snowboards sold internationally, we should be looking to the smaller companies that actually stand for what they and we believe in. Spend the time and energy supporting the brands that do give a shit. These are the companies that are putting every ounce of time, money, and energy they have to build something that they think is cool. They are the ones that have one man marketing teams that are also designing and engineering the boards you love. They are at every event that stands for snowboarding, putting in the time to build the infrastructure so we can all show up the morning of and have a good time. They are friends with everyone, support their competitors, and have built their lives to be surrounded by this thing we all love – and are not complaining about something being wrong. If it sucks to work at Burton – go work somewhere else. Their are plenty of brands that value talented, dedicated employees. Can’t find a job? Go make something. Don’t want to buy Burton because it’s a moral issue? Go buy product from the brands you do believe in. If you want Burton to make a change for the better, go work your ass off, get hired, move up in the company and make that change. The world needs to quit complaining and start taking action by doing, not saying. Thank you, Justin, for saying the right thing when no one else will.

    Nice work, however I hate to say I did like Hateline much more than this Newshow and it has nothing to do with the fact I got a few mentions there. The Newshow is just not as funny. Funny is good. Be good and take care.

    Sooooo since Vail resorts chairlifts go twice if not three times as fast as Mt Hood Meadows why do the lift lines matter. No matter how long the lines are we are still getting up the hill faster than your local Portlander.

    I’m dumbfounded by people saying hateline was better than newshow.
    Hateline was a bite of an already popular web series, newshow is not only it’s own original entity with it’s own unique flavor but it’s superior to hateline in every way.
    Stan is better than he has ever been, dude has his cadence and comic timing figured out, The editing is great and the show in general looks way better.
    Head and shoulders above every other piece of original content yobeat has ever done.
    I was also stoked to finally hear a reasonable opinion on this burton bullshit.

    Good points as usual from Stan. For real I feel like this whole “snowboarding is dying” thing has gotten so much momentum that everyone has to have an opinion about this Burton matter. That is an awesome sign that everyone is chiming in! It shows that there are a bunch of snowboarders who care about the state of the industry that they are involved in and how it is represented to the masses. It is also solid proof that snowboarding will not die. The hardcores will always be around to keep it going, the hangers on will fade away and the industry will shrink back down to a sustainable “core”.If Burton cant keep it’s relevancy and fades away than oh well, we will move on. Its a natural cycle of any industry and snowboarding will be better in the long run. Ride because you love to ride, if it stops being a trend and the industry shrinks to a more realistic size than fuck it, it wont change how awesome your time strapped in is.
