You can never come close to being anything like Diego.

Why are so many people hatin\' on Dekline?
Posted By: Jacques on March 2nd, 2009 at 12:09PM PST
Nice Job Diego!
The Dekline team just got a lot better with the addition of these Toy riders. I'm stoked.
And awesome game against Mike Mo, Billy! That was seriously the best game of skate I've ever seen in my life.
Posted By: Jake on March 2nd, 2009 at 12:36PM PST
Clint Peterson is next I bet
Please tell me dekline isn't kicking off the old guys (Melcher, Gareth, Matt Ball) those guys are so awsome but if they get kicked off they will never find a shoe sponsor again and then they'll fade away like ragdoll. That will ruin skateboarding for me

Diego Rules!!! but I hope that Josh won\'t leave fallen
Posted By: A guy from Spain on March 2nd, 2009 at 12:43PM PST
only the people who don't know what they are talking about don't like Dekline... Congrats Diego! and Billy versus Mike Mo was one of the best games of skate in my life.
Posted By: TurtleBoy'sTwin on March 2nd, 2009 at 12:49PM PST
cause dekline doesnt have shit on emerica or fallen, not an opinion but a fact
Posted By: northridge on March 2nd, 2009 at 12:50PM PST
Matt Ball? Melcher? who the shit wants that on a team? I can say for sure that if those dudes went to where ragdoll is that skating would not be ruined rather it would get a bit cleaned up. The dekline team is getting strong.

They'll make better shoe designs I bet
Posted By: johno on March 2nd, 2009 at 01:15PM PST
yeah diego! I like this adding spree, keeps me guessin!
Posted By: Melv. on March 2nd, 2009 at 01:16PM PST
i feel like diego finally fits on his shoe sponsor. reef was weird, osiris felt that way too. dekline feels like a good fit for him. Felicitaciones Diego!
Posted By: raul on March 2nd, 2009 at 01:16PM PST
you should put that kid melvin on dekline!
Posted By: Nugger on March 2nd, 2009 at 01:17PM PST
power to the peep hole, have you ever seen Melcher skate? He's constantly putting out stuff i'd never think of everytime i see new footage of him.
Posted By: raul on March 2nd, 2009 at 01:20PM PST
dang congrats diego! Anybody next??
They should just re-name Dekline to Toy Machine Footwear haha
Posted By: b on March 2nd, 2009 at 01:20PM PST
Yea I have seen him skate and yeah he does do some good moves but honestly it aint anything mindblowing or remotely catchy. And where did he fit on Dekline? It looks like dekline finally has a direction with some stereo dudes, and tum yeto dudes. I am glad mike york is out. I am happy that the team has a team feeling that makes sence. dekline still has Gareth so there is that. The skateboarding world is harsh and it takes more than ONE photo a year and a wacky look to make it these days.
Posted By: power to the peep hole on March 2nd, 2009 at 01:38PM PST
dude i dont honestly know how anyone can look at melcher and say he doesnt do anything "mindblowing or remotely catchy". seriously stop talking out of your ass cuz guys like that are what skateboarding is about not the same trick down the same set of stairs in different location, kudos to anyone who can do that stuff too but dont say guys like ragdoll and melch mess up skateboarding cuz they are just keeping it real, something ALOT of people have forgotten.
Posted By: JJ on March 2nd, 2009 at 02:02PM PST
well JJ keepin it real dont keep you on the team always. I didnt say they suck at skating but at skating for a living or a job they arent the best.
Posted By: power to the peep hole on March 2nd, 2009 at 02:08PM PST
Hey Ed, why did Diego switch from Vans to Dekline?
Posted By: Chudington on March 2nd, 2009 at 02:44PM PST
sick the teams lookin pretty sweet
Posted By: creeper on March 2nd, 2009 at 02:53PM PST
Is it now mandatory that us pawns purchase Deklines now?
Ball's pretty sick..Osiris is a weird company.My Girlfriend has Diego's pro shoe from Osiris.dope.
If Dekline puts out some nice clean designs,that would be nice. Sniff,sniff...do I smell a Dekline/Toy Machine colab??Huh?!?
Posted By: Jgonzalez on March 2nd, 2009 at 02:54PM PST
Se va poniendo en team de Dekline loco es la que va
Vamos Dieguito carajo!
Posted By: Fede on March 2nd, 2009 at 02:54PM PST
hey jj, melcher would be lucky to ollie carlsbad, let alone switch bigspin heel it...billy or reynolds, now those guy are "mindblowing and remotely catchy"
Posted By: northridge on March 2nd, 2009 at 03:06PM PST
Osiris ya perdio! a Diego, cual sera el proximo en Dekline?? se pone interesante! saber el team completo!!!
Posted By: Herson on March 2nd, 2009 at 03:13PM PST
Congrats Diego! I'm really happy for all the TM team progress. Sign me up for the vegan Austin Stephens pro shoe.
Also, congrats Billy on a killer game of skate. Billy would have won had he gotten to go first, and he alllllllmost had that last trick! Billy, you are awesome and an inspiration.
Posted By: Hemlock Drew on March 2nd, 2009 at 03:30PM PST

Posted By: wheresbilly on March 2nd, 2009 at 04:12PM PST
Grats Diego and Grats to Billy on the hat trick at his last game!
Posted By: fish face on March 2nd, 2009 at 08:19PM PST
ice town in riverside
Posted By: Billy on March 2nd, 2009 at 10:07PM PST
thats sick...im glad i've seen a couple pros into hockey. ive been playing for like 15 years, skating for about 10. people used to give me crap when i was a kid, they compared it to fruit booting. hockey is a man sport. thats sick billy is dominating in both, stay up son.
Posted By: ballasaurus on March 2nd, 2009 at 11:47PM PST

Posted By: sk8ARG on March 3rd, 2009 at 06:04PM PST
fuck all you dumb ass mother fuckers hyping up dekline. you know matt ball and melcher are the worst fools ever. fuck them niggas. they all look like fucking petafiles. who wants fools like that on your team. diego needs to learn some more tricks besides an ollie 180 and those tricks switch. get creative with your shit bitch im out.
Posted By: buck buck on March 4th, 2009 at 07:26PM PST
...petafiles are like, secret investigations on animal slaughter.
Posted By: Hemlock Drew on March 4th, 2009 at 09:54PM PST
good for u Diego.... Osiris Sucks!!!!
Posted By: Egg on March 8th, 2009 at 08:52AM PST
So funny..."petafiles"...so I guess it's all about what people look like these days. Only one style allowed I guess.What should I call that..."no-fashion-snobbism" maybe? So much USELESS hate.
Have to admit, super hard tricks impress me only for the moment...but seeing someone like Melcher just cruising, popping any trick he likes doing with style, having fun and not giving a fuck what anyone else thinks - that's what impresses me. Not this macho-conservative-pseudo-rebellion that other people try to impose. All you do is bitch and moan and judge. With bad spelling.
