I don't understand why people slag Gardner off. I never like the guy either, but I have to agree with him. Island of Man TT is, by any modern safety standards, definitely not safe. There's simply not enough space to make for adequate run offs. You crash and you hit a wall fence. Modern motorsports and its safety precautions have become an art in themselves. It's one thing to get your adrenaline pumping, and it's completely another thing to get suicidal.
