Nike Snowboarding done?

So allegedly Nike is pulling out of snowboarding after this season. If this is indeed true, it comes as a shock...but it shouldn't. It's happened before...history tends to repeat itself. In a way I want to say "good riddance." But also, it really bums me out. Not because of their products really, but more so because of the awesome snowboarders they supported and helped make able to do the things they love. These guys and girls are getting the shaft. A lot of them left long time sponsors...friends, to become prt of Nike's snowboarding program. They probably burned some bridges for their opportunity with Nike and now what? I'm sure most of them will land on their feet somewhere, but it leaves a sour taste in my mouth.
