Jumkie did.


Anyone who would pay $1600 for a rossi replica anti-tribute helmet instead of donating to the Haydens or for an actual Hayden piece of memorabilia is a cunt.

It would make sense for a fan of both riders, or someone who likes the design. It's a licensed NH product, so their family will reap profits.

It's just a bullshit "look at me too" thing to do.

A tragedy. Pay your respects and stay out of it. It shouldn't inspire business ideas.

As an Aussie, may I just say 'that is fucked'!








Now, I do realise that it says officially licenced, and may I say that none of my commentary is to be read as a slight in any way on the Hayden family, nor memory but is aimed at the poor taste marketing behind it.

Even if the Hayden family is happy to take some profits from it?

I personally like the tribute.

You say "happy" to make some profits from it. I'm sorry but I find that to be a poor choice of word. I don't think they could possibly be happy to profit from a tragic loss of a great human. I don't see a world where they could easily say no even if a better word choice was "reluctant to take some profits". I know you meant no disrespect we just disagree with the merit of the helmet.

It's not really a tribute though. It's a standard Rossi helmet(the one be was going to use for that race anyway) with his number hastily joined together with Hayden's.

Don't know if this is real or not, but it should be.
