    Cool Robbie Maddison's insane New Years Jump!



    And by comparison, here's Robbie Kinevel's (yawn) contribution.

    It was a ridiculous waste of TV time. My kids were watching it, however, and loved it. Especially the "f-bomb" at the end that was broadcast on live TV.

    It was no worse than any of the other drivel that's on tv now days. As for the F bomb, I'd be willing to bet your kids have heard worse at school on any given day.

    We watched it at work the next day. Personally, we thought it was pretty darn cool - you wouldn't have caught any of us daring to do something that uncontrolled.

    Not the first time I've heard an F-bomb dropped on live TV either. How about when it was done on Teen Jeopardy?

    I'm sorry. I didn't realize I was responding to a child.

    It makes no difference whether my kids hear worse, it is illegal to use that word on broadcast TV.

    Yes I did complain to ESPN and received an apology. Yes I did complain to the FCC and recieved a file number.

    No I am not holding my breath. They are going to be too busy going after Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh to deal with obscenity and profanity issues.

    The FCC's ability to go after broadcasters for "fleeting expletives" has been challenged in court..FCC vs FOX

    Most recently brought to the surface by Chase Utley's F-bomb during the Phillies parade.

    I remember during one rain delayed race,Dale Jr was talking about cutting wood at his house and commenting that "There'll be 'chit' flying everywhere".
    My girlfriend and I both had to explain to her kid that Jr really did say"chips" and he was under no circumstances to repeat what he thought that he had heard to his classmates.

    Watching Robbie Madison made me think,if I can't take an elevator,I ain't going to the roof.And I damned sure won't be riding a motorcycle off it,either.
    I get nervous climbing a ladder with a chain saw in hand.

    More years ago than I want to admit,I was a preteen watching ABC Sports waiting to see Evel Knevel jumping the Snake River Canyon.
    We hadn't seen it and of course the kid down the street just had to come running in the door hollering that his cousin was there and just called to tell him that Evel didn't make it.
    There we were watching the broadcast when it finally aired and even though we were still hoping,this kid just had to explain everything that happened before it occurred.
    His parents came down later that week wondering why my brother and I had ganged up on him when he wasn't doing anything to us that day.

    Excuse me, junior, but what does this response:

    I'm sorry. I didn't realize I was responding to a child.

    It makes no difference whether my kids hear worse, it is illegal to use that word on broadcast TV.

    Yes I did complain to ESPN and received an apology. Yes I did complain to the FCC and recieved a file number.

    No I am not holding my breath. They are going to be too busy going after Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh to deal with obscenity and profanity issues.
    have to do with speeding? Hypocrite? Me? Not on your life.

    Well, you said it was illegal and I pointed out that you, along with just about every other human being, do illegal things everyday. Kinda pointless to complain about someone breaking laws when you break them also isn't it....I can type slower if you wish

    Ummm. Yeah. OK.

    You are exhibiting psychotic behavior.

    And for the record, neither I, nor most people I know, break the law every day.

    Did you finish your homework, junior?
