It's not Kevin or TJ suing the resort.I think the OP is just reflecting on the state of current litigious society. not making it worse, it's already there.
Unfortunately precedent has already been set and reinforced numerous times though frivolous and ridiculous claims for damages being upheld by courts across the country..
To me, the problem is that Kevin and TJ NEED to make popular content to fund themselves and continue the sweet lifestyle where they don't have to work a shit job to get by.
That may lead to dubious decisions where they go and do sketchy things without the skills and knowledge to deal with things going wrong.
No-one can stop people viewing Youtube videos and then doing dumb shit. The problem is those dumb people are not putting on their big boy or big girl pants and taking personal responsibility for their actions.
None of the SBPC guys are doing anything truly radical. they seem to stick within the limits of their ability, for the most part.
If Kevin, TJ or any of their buddies do stupid shit and then sue the resort, THEN their youtube channels deserve to die.
The question is somebody getting wrecked, and their family suing the resort and then the legal repercussions coming from that. If you think you can't sue a resort because you 'signed' a waiver... think again. You CAN and the repercussions go far beyond the specific event.
Getting wrecked whilst riding not-so extreme stuff is not far-fetched either:
The RCMP and BC Coroners Service are investigating the deaths of a skier and a snowboarder at separate resorts in eastern British Columbia on Friday.
Now... the majority of this thread is littered with the typical pseudo-highschool jock-UFC-type trash talk americans are well known for (which is the majority of YouTube's audience and this forum as well); but once you dismiss those posts, and read them in their corresponding 13-yr old voice, you can find some decent substance. And some solid vegan recipes to boot.
Don't forget to put on your big boy pants.
