  1. Official Monster Truck 2K18 Thread

    That's been the problem with the previous forms of judging too. I've been going to Monster Jam at my local arena since about 2002 back when there were just 3 fan judges, and I've also seen it when they had 5 judges and got rid of the low and the high. I've seen things like Grave Digger get a nearly perfect score after rolling just a little more than 10 seconds into a run, I think everyone that's been to mutliple shows has seen something simlar to this. The only way to stop any kind of bias like this, at least that I can think of would be if Feld brought in some retired drivers and had them go on the various tours as judges.

    It's the second biggest attendance wise. Being the largest in attendance is far different than being the largest in floor space area. A stadium like University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale would have the largest floor space, not Michigan Stadium.

    I think the date change is pretty interesting. With the World Finals now being in May it extends the season by at least 1 months, and up to 2 months depending on when they do it in May. With them extending the season to May we could actually see a lot of new stadiums on the tour that they can't really go to in January, February and March due to weather. Looking at current NFL stadiums( I say NFL only because I doubt MLB teams will want Monster Jam coming in during the season and putting dirt down) there's a good chance we could see Monster Jam at the stadiums in Seattle, Kansas City, Charlotte, Washington DC/Landover, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Baltimore, Buffalo, Chicago, and Denver.

    The logo in the preview photo isn't the same as the one in the photo you posted either.

    I feel like you guys are really stretching for whatever this old truck might be.

    Exactly, it was bound to happen. To put things into perspective, I'd guess Dennis has been driving since the majority of the users on this site were born. He's competed in Monster Trucks since 1986, that's 31 years of hard hits, and as you get older the hits only get harder.

    So we're all in agreement MonsterJam.TV will probably be a service like the WWENetwork where they have all their past events available to watch, right? Maybe we'll get some live events too if we're lucky.

    Youtube link for anyone who needs it. News from the stream (Let me know if I forgot anything) Partnering with Netflix a truck from the past will make it's return for 3 events. As we know, the World Finals is back to 2 days, March 23 and 24. A new truck from the guys from the show "Diesel Brothers" that is diesel powered will debut in 2018, sounds like it is called the Brodozer. Brianna Mahon will be driving a truck called "Whiplash" An early access pass for pit parties on Saturday's are now available for Stadium shows All tour champions get an automatic bid in the World Finals Racing includes all 14 trucks in stadiums, fastest two go to the second round automatically, and new event called the "Two Wheel Challenge" Max of 42 points for stadium shows, winners get 14 points for each event, 13 for 2nd 12 for 3rd etc. Judges Zone will be used everywhere Arena course layout looks the same. Cars are included in the Chicago style course Marc McDonald is driving Cleatus Dennis Anderson is officially retired from competition Colt Stephens is driving the Brodozer A service/website called Monsterjam.TV was teased with footage from old and newer events, If I had to guess this is a service similar to the WWENetwork with most, if not all old monster jam shows and what not available

    Will this years hosts be as stiff and rehearsed as last years hosts? Probably. Will they not know a lick about monster trucks? Probably. Will it be awkward with technical difficulties? Probably. Will it be a train wreck? I hope so, I love a good train wreck.

    I can see why Lee O'Donnell won. It is the first time ever a perfect front flip was landed. It may be one of the only times we see it. As long as stadiums are setup for Jersey, Chicago and So Cal(If they do that style anymore) we won't be seeing front flips as often as wee see back flips. The only place, based on the way they setup the tracks that the front flip is possible will probably be in Las Vegas, even then, the track gets at least slight changes year after year, so the way they set it up in the future could negate any front flip attempt. It just happened that this year, it was set up perfectly for it to happen. And let's be real, in Monster Jam it's almost always been about having the biggest "Wow factor" when it comes to freestyle. When you put judging into all the fans hands most of them don't really care about momentum, and all the judging criteria. Most people are going to judge by the one crazy move they saw, not the whole run.

    Yeah, it will be open in time for the 2020 NFL season, which would start in September 2020, so the first World Finals would be 2021. Atlanta's new stadium broke ground in May of 2014, and it will open in August of this year, so that would be 3 years from ground breaking to opening. They have yet to break ground in Las Vegas, and assuming it takes the same amount of time, it own;t be open in time for the 2020 World Finals.

    Off the top of my head Sam Boyd Stadium hosts 5 events every year, 3 of them being the World Finals, Supercross finals and the Monster Energy Cup, all these from Feld. I could easily see once the new stadium is built them wanting to move at least the Supercross finals in the new stadium. The other two are the USA Rugby Sevens and the Las Vegas Bowl. I'd be willing to bet that the Las Vegas Bowl will move to the new stadium. Not sure what Rugby Sevens would do, as I'm not too familiar with it. So at some point, if you're from UNLV and it's only the WF, and Rugby there, is it even worth keeping the building and maintainung it? The thing is, the new stadium won't be done until the 2021 World Finals. In those 4 years a lot of things regarding that situation could and will change.
