This is the Stattmann Baby!!  Time to Scatt a little bit.

Our commitment to Freestyle Motocross is long standing.  It goes back to BEFORE we were on the air five years ago.

We’ve even built relationships with several competitors including Kenny Bartram, Trevor Vines, Mike Metzger and Travis Pastrana to name a few.

These are some of the knarliest competitors anywhere.

I don’t think many want to harm themselves but sitting by and LETTING them hurt themselves is disheartening, disingenuous and disrespectful to say the least.
Building big buck TV extravaganzas around heart stopping tricks so we can leer at world class athletes test their limits is becoming nauseating.

What’s it going to take to get some control over how these men display their breath taking skills?

And don’t tell me paralysis or worse is just part of the sport.  Neck snapping accidents or brutal tackles are one thing.

But standing by while gifted men stretch their limits to incredulity and doing nothing, not even officially wringing our hands, is another.  And the thought of selling tickets or commercials to watch the spectacle is maybe the ugliest thing I’ve ever heard of in sport.
