Of course the rich Palo Alto kids are dicks.
Plot hole with the 7 runners might be explained by them not having enough kids to field a team. We'll see.
If those rich white kids weren't depicted as dicks, it wouldn't be a good story, would it? How many runners have you ever known who are real dicks and wouldn't respect a team that could beat them? I grew up in the same city as Intermountain Indian School. They kicked are asses big time. And we respected them big time. It's a movie, of course, and at least in that preview it doesn't look very good.
