what do you think?

Post by Crankmas » Wed Aug 20, 2008 12:43 pm

Recent issue of R&I mag has a short bit on Steph Davis and basejumping but includes the news that both she and hubby Dean Potter lost significant sponsors ( I'm assuming Patagonia) due to the fallout from the arch climb done by Dean in Utah, I think Steph was shooting photos and got the hammer for such. Harsh? appropriate given the access issue? who cares about those wankers and patagucci anyway?

Dean's a cool guy, never really talked to steff much. Patagonia seems to give a crap about the environment and makes pretty good clothing/gear.. who give a crap what R&I thinks?

It may have been the issue that Patagucci had to take action somehow and that was the outcome. I mean Dean prob should have thought a little before doing it, but who knows.... :roll:

He shouldn't have taken the film crew with him. Just done the route, kept his mouth shut and none of this would have happened. He deserves what he gets.

Sounds like potter is an arrogant prick and Patapooponyagucci realized that he isn't the kind of dude they want representing them, nor anyone that associates with him.

perhaps papayagucci was inspired by odub's rap and was all, "yo, fuck this wanker!".

It would be like if Mike Tyson use to have an endorsement contract with a company that made hearing aids. After the Holyfield fight, they would drop him.

There was nothing about the climb all that impressive for Potter- 60 feet with an 11+ crux. So to act like it wasn't a publicity stunt is pretty stupid, Delicate Arch is on the Utah license plate for fucks sake. He should stick to solos that climbers can respect or start hanging out with the French Spiderman.
