I feel bad for saying that he has the worste, sloppiest style, but if there ever was a man who had drive and spirit in skateboarding, it's him.

You must be children.  Mullen essentially invented modern skateboarding.
If you cannot respect him and honor this, then give up and get the fuck out.

So basically your saying the old brick cell phones are better than our new aged cell phones? Just because they were invented first? Weak.

i respect him, i just feel embarrassed for him. and i hate the fact that you always see kook standing on their boards primo trying to whip it around and land on it not moving instead of learning how to ollie. it isn't a real trick if you end up stationary.

honor is another thing. what do you think this is? martial arts? this is skateboarding, seems like you need to give up and get out if you can't hang.

not what he's saying at all. mullen invented half the shit you kick around with your board. in your analogy you should be crediting the innovators of cellular technology, not comparing bricks to blackberrys.

I was playing COD:WOW & I told this one guy to stop being a little bitch. Well, I wasn't aware that this douche lived down the street and he busted into my friend's place & pulled a gun on us. The fucker didn't realize that he was outnumbered so we took his gun & threw his ass out.

That is pretty much what Mullen is known for.  It's called freestyle and they are tricks.  The common popsickle shaped deck of today is little more than an old school freestyle deck with concave.  We can all thank Rodney for that as well...  contemporary shaped decks that is.

p.s.  Rodney is also pushin' mid 40s.  How many of the people you see posting here will be skating as well (or at all) when they are his age?  When I was younger I used to hate on Rodney and his ilk.  Then to my horror, the large majority of skateboarding turned into people trying to copy him.  I've long since given up on hating the guy.  he's such a lovable geek I just can't do it anymore.  I'll keep slashin' around the bowl in my own little universe.

I feel kind of bad for the guy, imagine if you were just kind of doing your own thing, and all of a sudden half the skate population is idolizing you and the other half hates you

What the fuck is going on here?  Hating on Rodney Mullen?  So he's a nerd, who gives a fuck?  Everyone is a nerd.  If you are posting shit on this forum you are a skate nerd, simple as that.  How can you hate someone for doing what they love?  Do you think he has to get coverage any more?  Do you think he gives a shit about what anybody thinks?  The shit he does is ridiculous!  He's invented more tricks than anybody else!  He has worked hard for it!  Just because freestyle died out is he supposed to stop doing the shit that interests him?

Lettuce not forget what skateboarding is about; creativity and having fun.  It seriously bums me out to see so much hate in this topic.

Rodney's great and all, but that footage is from like 5 years ago. Did you really need to start a thread about it?
