How did Bam make a mistake? He's a billionaire now.
Posted By: Anthony on December 30th, 2005 at 10:07PM PST
i always wanted to know, why exactly did he quit toy?
Posted By: D on December 31st, 2005 at 04:34AM PST
He and Tod Swank, the owner of Tum-Yeto got into a fight over his first CKY video. Bam thought it was selling more than it was, and accused Tod of screwing him over. Tod gets real mad when people accuse him and made it worse by then not paying him, and like two little kids it got worse and worse.

All I know is Tod never screwed him over. It got to the point where Bam and Tod hated each other. Tod told all his employees to not let Bam get anything when he calls. (without telling me he was doing this.) And Bam called for product. They denied him and he quit. Then Maldonado called and pretended he was Bam, got denied, and quit on principal.

I had nothing to do with it!

I kinda wish he was still on the team but wasn't all mtv famous and all that, he wouldn't be all element and adio
Posted By: noah on January 10th, 2006 at 02:10PM PST
Why dont they ever tell you in like transworld and stuff WHY certain people left certain teams? Im still wondering why Terry Kennedy left Element and why Tosh and Ellington left Emerica, and why Kris M. left Blind and Adio (even though some of this is new news) WHY!?!?!?
Posted By: Tim on January 12th, 2006 at 09:08AM PST
ellington's off emerica???????
is that for the new krew shoes thing i heard something about? at least i think it was krew shoes.
Posted By: nicholas on January 12th, 2006 at 01:08PM PST
not that anyone will read this but, yes, as i stated earlier, it is a new krew shoe company called supra shoes & ellington's probably gone there. Boulala is already on & has been for a while.

bam is a pussy and he never should of sold out- now he is an MTV sellout and his only fans are faggets and 12-year-old posers.he is now a shame to skateboarding

bam was an alright skater back in the day now mostly everyone who skate is a poser obsessed with bams punk-ass (at my school anyway, all pussysdressed from head to toe in bam and element shit).
Posted By: rickardo on January 31st, 2006 at 01:04PM PST
YO,a bunch of poser a-hole's that dont skate buy Element shit.Some Kids cant even skate and they were element,Fuckin element sucks now cause of bam.If he was still ridin for Toy then a bunch of dumbasses will be ridin Toy.rickardo makes kind of a point on what i meen.A bunch of people assume i always watch Bam and shit cause i do a bunch of Dumbass shit with my Friends.God,Bam Nerds are annoying.A bunch of ugly chicks wear bam clothes cause they like HIM,who music sucks.Bam isnt really good at skating compared to other Pros,Like Mike V,his style is neat and interesting.Also whenever i go to a skate shop Every fuckin Element deck is bam and shit,Can i just buy Something whithout Bam?If i ever became pro a bunch of dumbasses i bet will accuse me of copying bam,cause all the stupid stuff i do,FUCK.Bam has made skating more popular,but to a bunch of immpressionable idiots.Damn!

Posted By: rory on April 14th, 2009 at 03:23PM PST
bam is a skater just like everyone else. he has his tricks that he loves to do and are really good at so he does those tricks. but yet he can still do a lot of all the other tricks, he just choses not to. i know that thats how i am and thats how probably every skater is.
Posted By: austin on September 8th, 2009 at 07:57AM PST
Bam rocks he's a awesom skater he can do watever the fuck he wants

Posted By: bradley on January 4th, 2010 at 08:08PM PST
why does everybody hate element so fucking much??
Posted By: mike on June 19th, 2010 at 08:03AM PST
everyone hates element because they are the best and everyone else usually gets them as there first board
Posted By: neal on August 1st, 2010 at 09:07PM PST
Bam was good back in the day. He's still good now, but i think he slacks some. His 2 problems are drinking and partying. If you look at recent photos of him he looks high as hell. When will he learn? Didn't coco almost kill him once? But none the less, I dunno why people think bam is shit, I think he's pretty good. Toy Machine and Element are 2 of my favorite skate companies, so yeah. go figure
Posted By: lopli321 on September 26th, 2010 at 12:04PM PST
dammm shit Bam is f***en awesome!
Posted By: Blaze! on November 30th, 2010 at 11:15AM PST
bam was awesome back in the day and i think he's still a great skater
dont understand why everyone hates element there a good team
and i think he made a good choice switching to element, look at all the stuff that happened to him, TV shows movies, MAD MONEY SON
