Quoting Dave Lang on Facebook:
I’m clearing up this Montre thing once and for all. I’m starting to feel sick over all of the hate being projected onto someone that I truly have respect for, Brian Shima.
After Blading Cup, Montre decided to change his flight back to North Carolina and spend some time out at Woodward with me. Funny enough, we ended up doing this twice and turned into one of the best times I’ve had in a while. During his stay here, I first heard of this whole rumor that Montre was switching companies. I don’t find my two cents on the Internet because quite frankly, nothing stated on any forum or message board is true. Especially when someone hides behind an alias and, (the ever so popular, “Anonymous”.
I’m stating this outright, I heard the entire conversation that Montre had with Shima. Yes, they spoke on the phone, nothing was taken care of through a text message .
Do you really think in all of the years Brian has been skating, that he would handle this situation in such an unprofessional matter?
Shima has infinite respect for everyone on his team.
