Doing the wave during a football injury is nothing compared to laughing about a fatality by referencing "ghosts".

Ghosts are real

"@moonwalkmcfly: .@JedYork Any truth to the rumor that Levi's Stadium will have the tech to automatically catapult fans doing the wave?" Yes

Can anybody explain?
Yeah a very dangerous job. Some times it's to no fault of there own and some times it's the person's fault. One little slip up is all it takes. I know Cowboys stadium had at least 1, Brewers back in 99 had 3 I think alone when a crane tipped over. Also, said with the cowboys one 2 days prior 3 people were taken to the hospital from a crane accident.

I'm sure there are many more incidents and deaths just would have to look into it. Doesn't seem like much but at least the 2 guys were in their 60s and led a long life and weren't 25, just married with a pregnant wife or new born. I just hope we put up some kind of memorial to these 2 guys. I think they should have a plaque with all the people who worked on the stadium but for sure these 2 guys deserve something special.
Construction is dangerous. Workers have died building almost every landmark in the country throughout history. It happens unfortunately.

You would think there would have been way more deaths building something of that scale that long ago.

Alot more than 11 fell. They had nets to catch them but the day that 10 of them fell, a part of the structure also fell taking out the net. Yikes.
Jed should stop worrying about fans doing the wave during injuries and focus on people dying on his construction site.

Yes, because it was Jeds fault the rebar got dropped on a driver.

I don't think I am man enough for any job that requires a safety net.

"Of eleven men killed from falls during construction, ten were killed (when the bridge was near completion) when the net failed under the stress of a scaffold that had fallen."
