Hmm this POD? RAD picture but there was a better one
I'm loving both though

When you get a little older hopefully you'll learn that backhanded compliments aren't really compliments at all; rad picture but... let me criticize anyway.
This might not seem obvious, but while it's great that you may like one image more than another, not everyone is going to agree with you. So next time, maybe just go with 'RAD picture.' Full stop.

Im just giving my opinion, nothing wrong with that
(Dec 3, 2014 at 1:30)
It's disingenuous, whether your opinion or not. I could call you an a$$hole (I don't think you are) and it would be my opinion, and yes there should be something wrong with that.

General-Lee, stop being a bell end. The chap was giving his opinion that both photos are rad, which clearly they are! I don't get all this over annalysisng nonsense and unnecessary put downs. Perhaps when you get a little older you'll appreciate that an aggravated approach to someone's opinion isn't necessarily the correct one. I suggest you get out on yer bike lad and chill out! Full stop.

Considering he prefers another photo from the same photographers photos from the same day of shooting it's hardly insulting to the photographers work.

General lee wtf are u talking about brahh?? Any hoo in my opinion i like this pic better than the other that hutch posted, i like the lighting and all of this one, but that is just my opinion and i respect anybody elses opinion, cuz if we all had the same opinion life would be pretty boring.

Even just skimming them, Hutch's comments over the past few POD's have stood out as exceptionally tactless. If you were looking into an artists collection you'd never say to them:
"i hate to be this guy, but there is too much focus on the flowers...."; "i am not saying its terrible , but i think it would have been a lot better if the rider was on that feature in the middle of the picture as he is out of focus....."; "i mean 2400 views and 16 favs... no disrespect to the photographer of course; he shot a couple of brilliant photos but this one is not a real 'banger' compared to the others as expected from a pod..."; "nice picture, and i hate to be that guy but i think there are other pictures which are better than this which have not been pod yet..."; "nice picture! i like it even though it might have been much better having the rider in the lit up area..."
So when the first comment I read is by the same guy saying "Hmm this POD? RAD picture but there was a better one..." I think he deserves to be called out for it, negative props be dammed.

i really like the picture, but you seem like you have a lot of free time general lee.
Did i do it right?
(Dec 3, 2014 at 21:35)
criticize people who criticize. Two wrongs do not make a right General-Lee.
(Dec 3, 2014 at 22:04)
Criticism of my criticism of a criticism noted. Deepest apologies if I hurt the lads feelings.

at 11pm I don't really have any training so yeh... I just mentally train by searching Pinkbike
(Dec 3, 2014 at 3:49)
love this segment of the film
(Dec 3, 2014 at 5:00)
Yep that high speed manual is the highlight of the whole movie for me , sure the big jumps/tricks are mind blowing but if I could wish to do one thing from that movie it would be this 30mph manual along an off camber and around the corner !

Semenuks cut off arm is really triggering my photo composition OCD.
(Dec 3, 2014 at 16:45)
I feel ya man
(Dec 3, 2014 at 7:19)
I can't help myself. BRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAP Thats all i think of when seeing this photo.
(Jan 2, 2015 at 23:13)
General Lee really doesn't know when to shut the fuck up. After your first comment that got 30 down votes should be a big hint
(Dec 3, 2014 at 10:33)
That fiji session from rad company was so sick glad i have the blu-ray
(Dec 3, 2014 at 1:44)
I don't look like that when manualling at speed because:
a) It's dark
b) I'm on a hardtail
c) I'm wearing jeans
d) I'm too sexy for you anyway, OK*
*It's not OK, I'm so sexy it hurts, but hey, life is pain
(Dec 3, 2014 at 5:46)
No one looks like that at speed because, well face it, we ain't Brendog.
(Dec 3, 2014 at 2:51)
Really pisses me off when people comment on photos that are pods, and the so called elite Photographers jump down their throats even if they dont agree with the shot or have a opinion on it if it does not tie in with their own. chill out for fuck sake
(Dec 3, 2014 at 6:13)
Noted. I'll try harder to be as chill as you next time I read something I don't agree with, just as soon as I figure out how to let it really piss me off.
(Dec 3, 2014 at 11:41)
Just stfu already
(Dec 3, 2014 at 1:24)
2 of my favourite riders... but...Matt's description is wrong- I don't think I look like this when I manual at speed because I can't manual for sh*t.
