    On Vice today http://www.vice.com/en_uk/read/maybe...ateboarder-658

    I never knew about the attack before reading the article about 30 minutes ago but it does now make me think twice about the way the media (skateboard and otherwise) are marking his passing. Jay had a huge influence on skating for sure, and one that should be rightly celebrated. But he was also actively involved in a murder. At what point do you draw the line?

    Gator was wicked on a skateboard...
    poison...poison...TASTY FISH!

    I think ultimately you have to separate the person from their craft in a situation like this. Adams was a fantastic skater and a rotten human being, you can admire his skating and influence whilst also denouncing and criticizing his attitude and actions.

    Whatever you say about Jay Adams and Gator and Danny Way, they got the trains running on time.
