According to local reports, Montana was not seriously injured -- but the damage to his eye will keep him from appearing in front of the Santa Clara City Council tonight.

Montana was scheduled to discuss plans to build a new hotel, restaurant and sports bars near the proposed new 49ers stadium.

Seems kinda strange that a few stitches over your eye would keep you from appearing at the meeting.

C'mon, Joe Cool, don't ever get on that ATV without wearing your Niners helmet.

SantaFeJack, Montana wants to maintain his image. And a few stitches may seem like no big deal but we don't know what the bruising may look like or if he is on pain pills and feels that he would not be able to be more than a distraction to the meeting. And yes, he should have been wearing a proper helmet.

Too bad all ATV drivers don't run head first into trees and die. These things and their idiot drivers are nothing but noisy menaces and should die painful deaths. Idiot turds.

yeah, I'm way out of line.    

What a coincidence. He has a gash on his eye, and I've got my eye on some gash right now.
