Justice has been done. I was never going to support a fucken rollerblading contest if CJ didn’t win. He clearly deserve it, haffeY somehow made it somewhat close in the end but CJ was always the obvious winner. I was a bit pissed Roman Abrate got shafted, he shoulda been in the finals instead of stockwell. Maybe he was discriminated for being french or some other bullsht, it’s funny how all jon julio friends/business partners were advancing over other people who were skating better, such as nick lomax, brian aragon, roman abrate who were better than broskow and stockwell. It looked rigged but CJ killed it so bad, it woulda been too fucken obvious it was rigged if he didn’t win.
I love Jon Julio & all the Them Goods guys but the judging for this competition was COMPLETELY bias! Bailey should have been eliminated the first round with either Roman or Aragon advancing instead. Even when the crowd clearly let the judges know we wanted to see Roman they cut him AGAIN choosing Stockwell over him. Don’t get me wrong Stockwell was amazing but in the general opinion of most of the “bleacher creatures” Roman should have been in the finals battling it out with Haffey & CJ. Either way Jon Julio did a great job. I greatly appreciate everything he’s doing for Santa Ana & rollerblading and can’t wait for next years competition :)
France is the reason CJ was even at that comp. CJ is so likable, now that he skates for a French company, I have to believe that some of this France vs USA crap will subside. IF YOU HATE ON THE FRENCH YOU NOW HATE ON CJ TOO. Quit being idiots.
btw, Roman Abrate is THE REAL WORLD’S #1. Aragon is getting credit for winning the NL contest in Strasbourg this year when really, he won it last year (Lomax won this year, even though he got zero credit from WRS). This gives him an extra 3000 points when Roman is less than 2000 points behind him. not that Aragon can’t win it back, or CJ!! ;)
one more thing. CJ originally didn’t even make it out of his heat. Stockwell got picked over him (gimme a break!!) and CJ was later given a wildcard to advance. If CJ had been advanced and Jeff moved to the wildcard pool, I think Aragon could’ve received that wildcard instead.
that french guy was definitely the most boring skater to watch in the whole comp. flip around on the same 2 launches over and over. im a rollerblader, not a person walking by that needs to be woo’d. id rather watch farmer skate the box and not land a single trick.
You probably watch Farmer skate the box without landing a single trick because you idolize him for what he has done for rollerblading. Nobody else would know and this was the opportunity to show the sport for a wider audience. Were there other foreigners you didn’t like btw? Gosh. So insular.
^ anonymous, you clearly know nothing about rollerblading, moron. Anyone with a slightly bit of knowledge of skating knows Abrate should have advanced. You probably have skated for 1 year or you are just an idiot, you don’t even know his name, keep calling him “French guy/flipper.” Sit your ass down and learn something about skating first before you open your shit hole of a mouth.
What an amazing event to be at! I found it hard to believe Roman did not make it to the finals. He was putting on an amazing show all day long, no exaggeration. Im glad that CJ won, however the finals would have been way more exciting if it were CJ, Haffey, Lomax, and Roman. We need a better judging system for any future events.
“Im glad that CJ won, however the finals would have been way more exciting if it were CJ, Haffey, Lomax, and Roman” Bring Aragon to the lot and I agree, but I don’t think three international skaters versus only two Americans would’ve been appreciated though.
