Doug Henry rode that bike. :)

But seriously, what could do that... maybe a 350-pound rider doing few too many 90-foot triples? And not landing properly?

That kind of failure does not happen often, that's for sure.

That's a YZ250F. Is there a serious question here?

Is this not uncommon for a YZ250F?

Yes, it's uncommon. Rare, even. Very rare.

Still trying to figure out what the point is, considering it doesn't involve the forum topic.

Obviously he thought it was a 450. Move it to the 250 topic if it's such a concern.

does the top triple look pushed up in the center or is this normal?If it is that was one hard landing.Never mind if it was due to landing it would be pushed up by the forks.

The triples look fine by what I can see, but the frame seems to have a problem.

Can I have the tires?

It's really rather obvious. A crack developed and was ignored for too long, and it "got worse".
