Mark McMorris Call’s Out Shaun White In X-Games Interview

by

19 year old Canadian snowboarder Mark McMorris was awfully blunt when asked about Shaun White in a recent interview with X Games Ramona Bruland. McMorris, who is the defending slopestyle gold medalist from 2012 had these words to say when asked about White.

“He doesn’t dominate slopestyle at all. He doesn’t ride rails. He doesn’t watch snowboarding, I don’t think. It’s kinda weird if you get scored high and you’re not grabbing your board, even? That’s a little crazy.” McMorris said.

This should make things interesting!

  1. I’m with Mark. Shaun has been overprotected for long time and over scoring him compared to Kevin Pearce at his best.

  2. Love it. Shawn White is a bitch.

    • So Hone Dog, I’ve never heard of you winning any “GOLDS”!
      So cool neither McMorris, or Touant who made unsportsmen like comments about one of the greatest “Shawn White”, didn’t even place today. Parrot received the bronze (wow). What you didn’t know about, was our Utah “Secret Weapon SAGE”, GOT THE GOLD!!!! WE are so proud!!!! Congrats. also to Norway for taking the silver!!! USA, USA, USA.
      Just Wait and watch “SHAWN GET HIS THIRD GOLD’ oh yea!!!!

  3. Finally. Thank you mark!

  4. the judges need to hop off of shawns dick

  5. Fuck all three of you. Shaun White is a legend and an American hero. This kid’s a little Canadian pussy ass bitch who’s gonna get his mouth shut when Shaun White kicks his ass.

  6. American hero? What crack are you smoking? Yea, White is good, but Mark was completely right when it came to that comment about slopestyle. White would have the same right to say what McMorris did should he have opened his mouth about the half-pipe. And when you’re the defending champ in that category you should have every right to do so.

  7. @Brandon- First, your definition of American Hero must be quite…hmmmm, let’s say…misconstrued. Someone having a great deal of talent coupled with immense opportunity (he’s been Jake Burton’s little science experiment since age 7) does NOT make them a Hero.

    Second, I’d like to see you ride with even 1/8 the skill that either of these riders have.

    Finally, your colorful vocabulary only shows that your writing skills are just as lacking of talent or skill as your riding must be.

  8. Its about time someone said something, im getting tired of shawn grabbing under his boot and zeaching every rail in site, while getting praised for his awful style.

  9. @Brandon-

    Canadian hero = Terry Fox
    American hero = shawn white…
    god bless Merica’

  10. It’s Shawn White vs. The World

  11. @ Scooby doo(where are you)?
    Wow, I love it when people try to sound more intelligent than others through an obvious well thought out rant towards an athlete who no denying earned his way and changed the sport. I’m not going to spend to much time on this with something that your eyes and ears cant filter. You got the arrogance of an upcoming game changer on one side. On the other you got the one who created the game, and stayed humble and real through it…..long story short I’ve been boarding for a long time rode amateur-pro, blah blah, ect, ….I’ve seen the sport evolve and become what it is today bc of guys like Shaun, the dude aught to be respected….just saying

  12. I dont know where this bad blood is coming from, McMorris is probably just tired of all the White talk cause there are a lot of other good riders out there nowadays. Im a fan of both to be honest I just love good snow boarding. Personally I think McMorris is gonna defend his slope style gold, he looks way to comfortable on the course. Unless White has an epic run and stomps his Triple Cork I think McMorris has got it. Rooting for White in the Superpipe though. X GAMES!!! i love it!!!!!!!

  13. What’s with all the pissing and moaning, this is competition and everyone has their time and time will tell who rules. Shaun has to answer and knowing him he will, one way or another, win or loose; one thing Shaun is not is a winging pussy-boy. Don’t discount Shaun’s talent, the dude rocks and has led the riding scene for a rocking ride; but, the torch will eventually pass and it may be to McMorris.

  14. shaun white tore it up last night in the pipe. shaun white is gonna wreck slope style next year. Greatest Of All Time… So cal babbyyy

  15. BOY, THE VULGAR COMMENTS ARE COMING FROM ALOT OF HAS BEENS, OR NEVER WERE’S !!!!

    SHAWN WHITE IS ONE OF THE GREATEST !!! A FEW GREEN EYES AND ENVIE OUT THERE?

    SHAWN WILL GET HIS 3RD GOLD!!!

    SAGE TOOK THE GOLD FOR US!! OH YEA !!!!!
