  1. World Finals XVIII Discussion

    If Koehler wins this, or even if he makes the final four, I'm going to lose my mind.

    I don't see Earth Shaker's qualifying time listed anywhere on the Monster Jam website. What was it?
  3. World Finals XVIII Discussion

    I apologize if this has been reported already, but Dennis is obviously unhappy that Pablo did not make the field for this year's World Finals. He posted a picture of Pablo with this caption on Instagram: I just wanted to take a minute to thank this guy right here and his wife..pablo and tina huffaker for 35 years of helping me keep gravedigger going..even though some people dont appreciate you i most certainly do! You have always gone above and beyond to make gravedigger what is it! I wont forget where WE started and what you have done for gravedigger. Its a shame you are not invited to celebrate our 35th anniversary of grave digger together. You deserve to be there and it wont be complete with out you. I love you guys we are family! #somethingsjustaintright #gravedigger#teamdigger I'm glad Dennis is speaking up here. Pablo should not have been left out.

    Here's my final 9. This is not really a prediction, it's more of what I'm hoping will happen. I chose based on how each driver performed this season. 1. Randy Brown - Won an arena tour 2. Pablo Huffaker - Won an arena tour 3. Gary Porter - Won an arena tour 4. Lee O'Donnell - Finished 2nd in stadium tour 4 5. C. Eichelberger - Finished 3rd in the East tour after joining late 6. Chuck Werner - Finished 4th against tough competition in the East tour 7. Carl Van Horn - Finished 3rd in stadium tour 3. If McDonough makes it, then how can he not? He finished ahead of her. 8. Colt Stephens - Finished 5th in the West tour, which was probably the strongest tour this season 9. Becky McDonough - Finished 4th in stadium tour 3. If guys who won their tours don't get invites, then what is the point of keeping track of points for those tours? The points just expose how unfair World Finals selection is. We all already knew it was unfair, but this makes it tangible. To me, leaving out Brown, Huffaker or Porter would be ludicrous. Of course I won't be surprised if they are left out, but that doesn't make it any less nonsensical.

    He's getting old. It just happens sometimes. On the topic of Buyten making the field: Even if Monster Jam needed to put Metal Mulisha in, why not put one of the Grave Digger drivers in it? Pablo Huffaker and Randy Brown both won their tours this year so I think they definitely deserve an invite. This would be a perfect chance to get them in the field without driving up the number of Grave Diggers in the show. They already put Pauken in Monster Mutt, one of those two should be in Metal Mulisha.
  6. What kind of freestyler are you?

    I'm the type of freestyler that closes their eyes and mashes the gas until I flip or break, then I get out of my truck and scream incoherent nonsense. The Madusa of Rigs of Rods, if you will.

    My thoughts: The track played out pretty much the way I thought it would, and I've stated my feelings on that already so I'll just say this: the drivers should be competing with each other, not with the track. There were still some good runs though, despite the track. I thought Damon's was the best, Adam just didn't do enough in bonus to get the win, in my opinion. Dennis and Ryan also had great runs. It was cool to see the old man put together a run that warranted the reaction "holy s***," for the first time in a long time. In the future I think it would be good for Monster Jam to move to 20 judges (10 pro, 10 fans) with each giving a score 1-10 for a total regulation score out of 200 points. They can have 10 more judges score bonus 1-5 for a total possible score of 250. The more judges there are, the more likely they are to get it right (that's been mathematically proven). And I think we can all agree that getting it right is what's most important, even if it breaks the tradition of having the scores be out of 35 or 45. That being said, while Adam didn't have the best run last night I do think he was pretty deserving of a Freestyle championship based on his performances all season. Also, interesting to note that back in the day (~2005-2012), when Dennis and Tom were the best in Monster Jam, they very rarely came up big in the World Finals freestyle. However, the 3 best right now, Damon, Ryan, and Adam (imo) seem to put together runs that compete for a championship every year. What does this mean to me? It's going to be very difficult to win a freestyle championship in the near (and possibly distant) future if you're name isn't Adam, Ryan or Damon.

    Here's the complete bracket in case anyone wanted it. Congratulations to Morgan, great night for him.

    Even if I don't know exactly what the track will look like, I have a pretty good idea. The freestyle tracks in 2014 and 2015 were very different, but every track for the last 2 years (World Finals or not) has been the same thing. The ramps are too steep. I guess I had hoped Monster Jam would come up with something new for the World Finals after using the same track all season (like they did back in 2007). But, If you look at the freestyle ramps that are already there, you can tell they're going to go with the really steep ramps, yet again.

    I've been around, Johan, scanning forums, looking at WIP, voting in League polls. I just didn't feel the urge to post until I saw that recycled trash appear on my screen, again.

    Why is Monster Jam so set on continuing to put out these bad tracks? It's the same thing as last year: a track entirely made up of table tops and ramps that are at 80 degree angles. This track will not lead to entertaining freestyles, anyone with half a brain knows that. How can no one at FELD or Monster Jam realize this? Do they watch the events? I know the freestyle track is not complete yet, but I don't need to see the completed version to know that 32 trucks in a row are going to have to crawl over the obstacles just to survive the time. If anyone really gasses it into a jump they're just going to wind up coming down completely vertical and the truck is going to fall apart. I'm sure this has been said about 100 times already, but it really ticks me off. This kind of reverse evolution of the something I love is just frustrating. And it really shouldn't be a difficult fix, just don't make crappy tracks. They had such good tracks back in 08-09, why don't they reuse those ideas instead of reusing this garbage week after week, year after year? Waiting to see what the World Finals track would look like, and anticipating how the drivers would attack it used to be really exciting. It's not anymore. Rant over, have a blessed day.
