For those of you that don't believe there is a deep state in the sport of water skiing, I can tell you otherwise, I lived it last year. I was falsely accused by the deep state of inappropriate posts about Nate Smith on the now defunct Ski Fly message board. The deep state took extreme measures to attempt make a case against me to keep from competing at the 2018 Sr. Worlds but this surreptitious plot would fall flat on its face. Unbeknownst to me, this crowd hired an IT investigator to attempt to link the scandalous Ski Fly postings to me and a few of my friends by invading my personal privacy, my families' privacy and the privacy of dear friends - the investigators report made them all look stupid and exonerated me and my friends (I will post the IT report on my Facebook which reveals the participants). Unfortunately I have never received an apology by the deep state for wrongly invading my privacy nor has anyone apologized to the other people who were wrongly targeted.
Despite all this nonsense, I still love the sport and in the end I was crowned the 2018 World Slalom Champion (45 plus) with a last off the dock opt up 39 and [email protected]

This week I will be kicking off a new element to Radio Free Allman called “RFA Investigates”
I’ll spend a lot of time on government and political malfeasance but I’m going to kick this week’s feature off with an investigation of…drum roll please… Your taxpayer funded , Congressionally created Orwellian named “SafeSport” colluding with the Pro Waterskiing world to openly and uncourageously coddle one if its allegedly serial abusing stars .
Deep State meet the deep water.
This past weekend Nate Smith has competed in the California Water Ski Pro Am as a US sanctioned water skier. Next weekend he competes in the Malibu Open Two of the most prestigious events in the Pro Water Ski World.
Ask yourself: If you were accused of beating and threatening to kill a young woman , of having sex with a minor in a hotel room, and of suggesting a threesome and soliciting massages from a multiple 14 year olds where would you be ? SafeSport knew of these allegations .
Worse: It’s your own government created watch dog group that is kid gloving a guy who seemingly under any other circumstances would be under hot police lights instead of hot dogging on the water and being named as a "mentor to Team Germany's Youth". At the very least in any other industry or even the NFL, MLB, or NBA, Nate Smith would have been gone or more thoroughly investigated long ago. If Nate Smith was managed by SafeSport the same way they've managed others, he would be barred for life from coaching and competing.
Instead “SafeSport”, created by Congress, gave Smith a 90 day suspension and then it was mysteriously lifted just in time for him to compete at US National and appear before thousands. He’s already back making a mint with sponsors and still mentoring and coaching young girls and positioned by tone deaf sponsors to the very audience he coaches and victimizes. Of note, he's an amazing athlete - and won the California Pro Am this past weekend, making it easy for sponsors to use his influence.
Stay tuned to RFA Investigates all week here and on the radio as I talk to those affected by Smith’s alleged actions, to those who have made an effort to make "No Comment" but are too cowardly to actually do so - as RFA reveals the corporate sponsors who are pushing Smith’s allegations under the rug, and I'll ask our own Congressional Delegation about the seemingly toothless and cowardly SafeSport program.
