I am saddened by the death of fmx freestyler jeremy lusk.Thes new games go way beyond anything that is safe or family fun,When I was riding back in the 80's and 90's motox was dangerous,But not foolish and recklis.Now if you dont risk your life you are not competitive.What bothers me is the fact that someday my son will want to do these same tricks,And they are down right extremly fatel as this death has proved.Now dont get me wrong these athelites are extremly talented,but come on theres got to a point where talent crosses stupidity.I feel for the family of jeremy and I am saddened that a talented young man was taken in his prime.ESPN and there X games should take a moral responsibility and bring thes exibitions to a safer level .If anybody else feels like I do how bout a boycott or something along those lines.I love motosports,especialy quads and dirtbikes,but the bar has been raised so high that you basically have to risk your life to evan practice these stunts.Enough is Enough!! R.I.P jeremy ,you will be missed

X Games are at their prime if u can't handle the heat stay out the kitchen. There are other shows to watch. Im not saying the death of jeremy isnt sad, its just a risk that comes with the sport just like any other. Ive seen football players get injured horrifically and you dont see them canceling the super bowl any time
