There have been a few responses about this card, but here is the word from FASA
and currently in the Q&A. (Hey, for this answer and whole lot more check out
the SRTCG Q&A: SRCard's Official Unofficial SRTCG FAQ at -- shameless plug)

Q1: Does his ability effectively negate Wild Goose chase played on a
shadowrunning team he is in?
A1: Yes.

Q2: Could you elaborate on Skitz's special power - does it cancel the entire
effect of a card which would send the entire party (or several runners) home
e.g. Wild goose chase or Nets?
A2: Yes. However, in the case of Nets, it would only cancel the effect on
Skitz, since you roll independently for each Runner.

I know this contradicts a few comments people made. Hope this helps.
