Pro Watercross Tour Announces New “Code of Conduct” Rules
Y’know those ridiculous disclaimers at the bottom of car commercials saying, “Do not attempt?” Well, the reason they are there is because chances are that some knucklehead had already gone out and tried to reenact some stunt they saw in a Mountain Dew ad and ended up with a concussion or worse.
Unfortunately, when we see things like the Pro Watercross Tour adopting a new “Code of Conduct” for its athletes, teams and support crews, we know its because they’ve been forced to take such measures. And that’s really a shame…
As outlined in a statement by Pro Watercross Director AJ Handler, “A code of conduct is a signal to attendees that the Pro Watercross Tour organizers have carefully considered the issues involved with attending tour events, and that they want to make the tour welcoming and safe for everyone.”

Thanks Kevin, sometimes as you have heard it said many times .... it only takes one bad apple to spoil the bunch. As pro water cross racers we have to be above petty crap & help promote the sport ..... God Knows, it needs it. Thanks

I just felt this was similar to all of the litigation-avoiding disclaimers we see everywhere these days and felt, "Man, it's too bad we even need this!"

It's a shame that it needs to be done. Just this past Saturday night after the Pacquiao fight I was actually surprised at how gracious Bradley was in defeat. Isn't that sad?
