Sponsorship has always been part of blading/skating, but I'm curious about what people think about it. What do people think it is? What do people think it should be? What should it take for a skater to get sponsored? What should be expected of sponsored skaters? What should a sponsor do for skaters? In general I'd like to hear the opinions on this topic from all sides, skaters(pro/am/the rest of us),and companies large and small, successful or not. Break it down if you can. Give it the good the bad and the ugly. And NO I am not looking for a sponsor. I'm considering becoming one.
