 You remember the story of the little boy who cried wolf? In case you forgot, he was a little boy who cried for help because he said there was a wolf after him. Each time the people of the village came running, and each time there was no wolf. Eventually they got really tired of it. So when he calls for help because there's a real wolf, nobody takes him seriously. Nobody comes, because nobody cares. Do you see where I'm going with this Jim? What we have here is a shitwolf. Do you know what a shitwolf is? You never seem to have that crucial little thing called evidence. But each time you cry shitwolf, and each time I come running. No more, Jim. Never again. Now, I want you to tell me what the moral of the story is

Never cry shitwolf

 That really sucks. As an athlete you have to decide what's important, a whip of which nobody cares about or the Rampage that's on actual network TV.

 @fecalmaster: but I’m pretty sure you’ll find most decent riders far prefer a whip than mad hucks. Probably means as much to win whip off as big events, I know it would to me.

 The difference is massive, I can and have done inverted massive whips,,,, yeaa. Would I do anything video worthy at Rampage hell no. Did you see Nyquist whole video on how stupid whips are. It's just a shame someone with his skillset on mega terrain throws it away of a "contest" I mean I didn't even watch the highlights.

 @fecalmaster: I'm guessing you have never been to crankworx or the whip off. Best thing to watch at crankworx live. The vibe at the whip off is nothing I've seen before, and I've been to world cups, us open, joyride multiple times. There is a reason why you'll see the biggest names from DH to Freeride attend the whip off year after year.

 Both recent times have been greatly due to heavy winds.. The guy is a legend and should be winning rampage events for sure.

 Seriously though, it bums me out since I feel it's always been at a moment that he's going to breakthrough and win an event.

 Heal quick Aggy. I'm on week 5 of broken scapula and ribs 6-9 and its extremley painful.

 I broke my scapula, collarbone, and 4 ribs last September, I feel your pain, took about 2 months to feel normal again. Heal up quickly! Healing vibes to everyone!

 been there and the pain is 3rd to birth, and kidney stones. Quicker rehab is key and NO ice.

 i can not see holding onto the bars at Rampage with that break.....been there and it hurts like 9.99. If he's got ribs as well then he's toast. I am a big fan and am bummed he will not win again as the dude is so talented on any bike. I like his steezie style as he always looks committed in the air..

 i did mine with some ribs a chip to the shoulder back in early june and it still gets pretty sore from time to time. that said i do have full power, so its gonna hurt, but i think he'll be able to do it.

 I was lucky to meet this guy at black sage and he was nice enough to chat with me and give me advice on how to manage my recovery on a broken heel. You got this man. Heal up and keep rippn! You gotta a lot of whips and flips left in ya!

 A broken bone that isn’t painful, isn’t actually broken, speaking from experience.

 @bubbrubb: ive broken bones. it doesn't hurt until days later after the doctors get in there are piece you back together and the painkillers wear off. adrenaline is awesome btw.

 I think it is time for Mr. G. think about a different job. He has broken so many bones and has had so many hard crashes that it is only a matter of time before he breaks something that is not fixable.

 He should be more than a wildcard. If he is healthy and wants in, he should be in.

 Am I the only one wondering where on your body your scapula is?

 Obviously Google can and has now told me, but would be nice to add that into the article so as to save folk having to Google it. I'm sure I wasn't the only one.

 @HankBizzle: Yeah man... It must have been a real bitch to spend those few seconds on Google... Uurgh... That's just the worst.
