52 Responses to “Don Bambrick: Game Theory Section (Unreleased)”
game theory would have been so much better with this section to take away attention from all the gross new kids with no style. I still think it was bullshit for Bambrick to get fired, and Im glad he’s got himself a new deal with USD. Skating is about skaters, not about companies and businessmen. Sure Bambi was unprofessional not going to SDSF but fuck skating is about as unprofessional a pastime as there is, and all that whole series of events did to me was make me identify with and support Bambrick a whole lot more and Razors a whole lot less. Razors’ team has gone from being the most prestigious in the world to a shambles in about 4 years, and it’s their own damn fault.
“Skating is about skaters, not about companies and businessmen.”
Hahaha. Where would rollerblading be without companies and businessmen? So these companies should sponsor riders and the skaters should be able to do whatever the fuck they want. Have you never had a job in your life? Do you know what it means to be accountable for your actions?
Don is badass but he fucked up, it’s over with. Obviously he and Razors have both moved on and he’s found a new home with USD. Dead subject.
No doubt whatsoever that AJs version of it is much better. Better song, which makes the tricks look even better and more light hearted with whole “Your F!RED” Donald trump thing which reflects dons attitude towards skating
i cannot not believe they replaced bambrick with julain bah….. julian bah sections was complete trash compared to this… thank god razor now got rid of bah too… hopedully they pick up a real skater this time….. FUCK YOU BAH YOU TRASH
Anyone who thought this sucked obviously skateboards. Don is the man! And it sucks that he got fired from Razors but it is what it is. Being pro is a job and he wasn’t fulfilling his obligation (NO CALL-NO SHOW). People have been fired from more important jobs for less. As far as this being unreleased, it was in Charging! by AJ and the editing on that was so much better. AJ should’ve done Game Theory, I’m sure it would’ve been about 3 times better (save the exaggeration). But he is much better off on the USD team and even has his own pro skate already, so cheers to him. Somebody get that man a beer!
Anyone saying this section is weak apparently doesn’t know a thing about skating. It’s full of technical skating, which is one of many skating styles. Another one is Aragons hammers, another one is Le Doux style parkour blading etc.
Razors is team build up mostly from people who are doing hammers, so seeing Bambrick among them gives impression his skating is worse – but no, it’s different. I think it’s good for him that he get fired by Razors and picked up by USD – there are more people with similar skating style here. Not only that, USD have better selection of skates more suited for technical skating, because lets face it, Razors are bulky shells developed around idea of huge tricks. Carbons II, Imperials, even narrow UFS Thrones work much better with this style.
In my opinion Don deserves to be a pro. But if he deserves pro-skate is another story. It was justified when he was in Razors, as he was only one among them to appeal to more technical skaters as skate seller. But in USD there are others with similar style, who are in team far longer, and don’t have pro-model. And it’s not Thrones, VIIs or even Imperials, he gets it’s Carbon II – their flagship. I think USD gave Bambrick pro model of it so quickly only to troll Razors – “you dumped the guy who is now making loads of bucks for us by signing our most expensive skate with his name, fools”.
This section was tight but, some people need to get their facts straight before talking shit. First off, Don had just gotten his pro skate SDSF was happening Don was a no show. In the Meantime he basically made a FUCK YOU edit to Razors showing that he was more involved in drinking than promoting his new skate. He may not be a contest skater, which is fine. But, at least show up to contests to promote your skate and promote the brands in which you are apart of.
Second note, Julian being pro for Razor had nothing to do with Razor firing Don. Don got fired for the reasons stated above. Julian was going to be on Razors regardless what Don did.
Thirdly, you say Julians section in Game Theory was weak. But, go to a few of the spots and then talk. AO Topsoul on a kink rail is FUCKING Ridiculous. Last trick is amazing, that drop is nuts.
i was disappointed in this section. it was online edit worthy at best. I glad it didn’t get included in game theory. don stop drinking so much, you were so much better when you had your photos in daily bread 6 or 7 years ago.
1. I love how the same anonymous person is apparently an older skater. (Cloudy night, sunny day) for Pornstar names is dope.
Don is a beast. that whole section was sick. the music didn’t have to match I personally liked it cause it allowed me to focus on his skating more. As for him getting dropped. Once again it’s business if he does that with USD it’ll happen again. He’s a great skater and even more so much smarter than Bah. If he does smoke out, at least the whole world doesn’t know about it. I mean damn man have your ever heard of self control. Bottom line Will is right and so are a lot of these guys as far as how good his skating is. I love techy skating. hammers are great but they aren’t shit without technique. this guy has that in spades.
makes me want razors, shame id never buy them ever again, i loved skating razors for years, but the last thing id want to do is support a bunch of idiots who fired dom for jumping on a bed
he was the only guy who was really holding it down, the razors team spend all there time at contests of filming with each other, dom moved out of those circles and got clips in other videos, other edits
Sorry I find it hard to believe that he got fired for (jumping on a bed or not showing up at SDSF) maybe for somethings else and that was the straw that broke the camel’s back but both of those are pointless reasons. Maybe he was a violent drunk and fought with various team mates. Maybe he tried to fight the team manager or even Andy. Either way him quiting makes far more sense than him being fired for being in a video or jumping on a bed. Shit Shitma has been in USD sections under friends. He’s done things and was never released. Murda too. Aragon, it’s hard to find him in a section but he’s done stuff for companies outside of Sunshine Distribution. So there’s definitely more than meets the eye and Dicks like Brian or Anonymous(Various) want to act like they know. They don’t.
Bottom line is this section is absolutely dope. his skating is next level and exciting.
There is so much shit going on that you kids don’t even know about (as homie above me was saying)
stfu and bitch about things that matter, like how these companies should be developing a pressing newer technology and inovations…not this shit. It doesn’t matter. J.bah will do fine, if he likes blading he’ll keep shredding, no biggie. Same with Don, these cats ain’t groms. shit.
So pissed with this sports interactive culture right now. Or maybe I just use the internet too much. either way, its gotta stop. These dudes skate better then a large majority of the blading community. Whateves.
Could be bothered to read everyone going on about his personaliity etc…..that was a SICK section! Immense tricks went down right there. I’ve always liked Bambrick, world class skater without a doubt. He’s done some of the best tricks I’ve seen.
