I'm sorry, but I just feel like you are a bad parent if you support your young kid getting involved in motocross or snowmobiling like this. I find it hard to feel sorry for the parents.

Not sure about this. Apparently, there's quite a few former NFL players that didn't know spending 30 years of your life running full-speed, head-first, into other people would increase the risk of brain damage...

The X-games are our modern day bloodsport. It's our version of the gladiators vs the lions. If you don't think that people tune in to watch the possible carnage, you're fooling yourself...

So NASCAR is a blood sport as well?

I could say the same for football.

They know the risks involved. Death is inevitable doing that sport. A death keeps a sport real..

"Too Far" is trying to perform a backflip with a 400lb machine meant for transportation. I think the "sport" is ridiculous.

...and I feel like your a bad parent if you don't support your child fully no matter what he is dreaming of doing or becoming. If some of you are happy sitting on the porch being conservative and worried about dying then fine but don't hate from the sidelines on a sport or a person who was doing what he loved and who knew the risks. If you haven't done anything like racing motocross, cars, or any other extreme activity that gives you an adrenaline rush from the pushing the limit then sadly you will never understand .....but thats not a reason to hate on him, his parents, or extreme sports.
