Just saw the ad for Channel Seven news for tomorrow (Thursday 21st April).
Looks like Channel Sevem is doing a hackett job on downhill skateboarding tomorrow. I haven't got time to rip and upload the video of the ad so here are the words:
High speed thrill seekers putting your life and theirs at risk.
(Jacko sound bite) Every road we skate is illegal to ride.
Why Sydney is now the hotspot of this dangerous sport.
Who is pushing the boundaries of safety and the law?
On Seven News tomorrow at 6.
they say any publicity is good publicity ... right ?
Leigh did a really good job in that.
Last bit of the report highlighted Leigh showing a more than expected responsible attitude to the sport.
I think that it was a fair report, and not a hatchet job.
That journo might even be helpful for getting a good news story out on an event when you can get a road closed.
