It was Kevin Windham. He said it on a very early Pulp MX Show. I don’t know the episode number and I know I’ll rightfully get hammered for not being able to present the episode number and time stamp but I was listening to some of the early shows a while back and stumbled upon it.

Does anyone remember hearing Windham talk about this? I’d like to find the episode again.

After they showed the multiple replays of the bike going into the nets and the Rider into the Pole I was thinking Steve must be screaming so loud his neighbors heard him and he probably tossed a load! w00t

I don’t know....just last week during the Ubber-Rated “Rutledge” show...Matthes, once again, claimed they were “his nets” grin

Out here in the fields, I fight for my meals. I get my back into my living. I don't need to fight, to prove I'm right. I don't need to be forgiven.

Did Kevin go on about them for years before they were Implemented tho ?

Yes, he's very proud of His Nets and rightfully so when it comes to rider safety.

I wonder how much the AMA paid him for his idea that they stole? laughing

His next mission is to get the tuff blocks teathured together. Jett Lawrence would agree.

I’m just glad they are there. That HRC bike would have been in the bleachers if not!

Same with Bogle when he hit them after a quad section a few years back!

Matthew was able to push it pretty hard on his platform, but who really cares?

There’s no doubt they’ve saved a few riders from weeks of injuries.

Let Matthes take all the credit and who cares, he is his own biggest fan. The important thing is the nets are there and doing the job. cool

They were in Arenacross in 01. Ask me how I know. Maybe we could get Rutledge to do a report on the Nets.

Arenacross definitely had nets years ago. Maybe Mike Kidd needs to call into the Pulp Show and set the record straight.

Steve made it happen!!! He just offered to pay for more nets on the race review show.

Haha I was waiting for that. I spent my entire main trying to get my CR out of it.

There’s a difference between coming up with an idea and campaigning till it gets done

|

3/22/2021 12:30 PM

If Matthew invented the idea , they would be called fuckin nets. He sure likes to use that word. It just gets old after a while.

How did Steve manage to accumulate so much rent-free space in people's heads?

No dog in this topic...

...but isn't the term "living rent free in someones head" about as played out now as "butthurt" and all the other fad lines.

I was raised just off HWY 126 in Valencia during the 80's.

I tagree, but am too tired to come up with a fresh tag for the phenomenon of people who obsess in their dislike of someone so much that they give their lives and mental health away trailing him around like a little a yappy little dogs barking "lookitlookitlookit!!!" at trivial nonsense.

The jealousy and hate for a guy that does nothing but give back to the sport is crazy. He’s one of the nicest people to talk too in the pits if you catch him, gives money to privateers, hooks people up on the show all the time, and is just an all around good dude. They might not have been his idea but he’s the reason they’re out there right now. And the only one who has put up the money for more!

Why do you view this as jealousy or hate? I don't understand. If anything I think Matthes would find it funny that he's gotten all of this credit for the idea.

Thank you! I was groaning after Webb beat Roczen again this weekend. Not because I'm a Roczen fan. Because I was going to have to read "Webb owns Roczens mind" comments for the hundredth time from fans thinking they're witty.
