American Chopper Jr VS Sr Who do you side on?
For years I've been a fan of the show American Chopper and have been out of it for a while. I wasn't aware of the turmoil boiling between Paul Jr Vs Paul Sr, but I have to say, I think all of us have seen this coming for quite a long time now. If you couldn't see this I'd say you'd have had to be watching another show. I think that was part of the appeal to watching the show. Personally, I just liked the bikes. It never sat well with me to watch a father and son go at it every day.
I mean really, the son Paul has tons of talent which takes a certain kind of flair and work style. Sr never likes it. Wants him to come in and spend all the same exact hours as someone that is a normal (non family) employee. Jr, who whas a 20 percent owner in OCC now just wants fair market value. I've heard Sr say that the value is nothing and that Jr will buy out sr if that's the case. We all know that the value has to be considerable with the number of older shops they have, the nice cars they drive and so on, but I'm thinking that SR is just being unreasonable. He was always picking fights, always starting things with JR, and never letting any little thing go that most normal people would try to figure out some normal way to deal with untill it got to a boiling point.
Now, I need to watch a few more shows to see what info the producers let loose, but what does everyone else know about all this? Is it really Sr that is being unreasonable? or is it Jr as well?
