Safety Deck Landings - The Whole Truth
Posted by GMONEY on January 3, 2012, 12:06 pm
I'll tell ya right now, it does not matter what the accepted rule is to me and it does not matter what organizations like Hairy Hairtime have to say on the matter! SAFETY DECK LANDINGS DO NOT COUNT! The safety deck is put in place to save your ass if you come up short! We all want every jumper to stay in one piece so they can jump again another day! But, THE DECK IS NOT PUT IN PLACE TO HELP YOUR ASS ACCOMPLISH A GOAL OR SET A RECORD THAT YOU FELL SHORT ON!! I've gone on record that Robbie Knievel did not successfully jump the Caesar's Fountains due to falling short and needing to make a deck landing! Evel himself said that Robbie would have been "decapitated" without the deck! So, it was a failed attempt! Henry Rife provided us video of a 10 car jump for which he required a deck landing hence disqualifying his attempt at a record or, rather, rendering it unsuccessful! Any true athlete and competitor would disqualify it themselves! I would!! Thank you for your time! I look forward to your responses!! G

On Oct 17th 1938 a baby was born.
That baby would become a man,that man became a LEGEND.
On Nov 30th 2007 the man passed away.
But his Legend lives on in the hearts the minds and the memories of
the millions of people whose lives he touched in the 69 years he graced the earth.
Thanks Evel we will NEVER FORGET YOU.
