I was wondering if this forum is still in use at all? It doesn’t appear that way since there are barely any recent posts. Anyway, I wanted to bring up some topics for discussion here. It would be cool to see some people start posting here again and join the discussion. I’ll initiate it. Firstly, I was wondering what those of you die-hard monster truck fans who know their stuff think the future of the sport is? Do you believe that Momster Jam will have the monopoly for the rest of time, or do you think there will be changes in the years to come? When I say that MJ has the “monopoly”, I’m really just talking about them being the biggest/most popular, and ultimately leading the industry. Building upon that first question, what do you think about the state of monster truck competition now, namely Monster Jam? My personal opinion is that it is getting too ridiculous. Monster trucks have become a circus. Backflips are cool, but they’ve just started to milk the over-the-top stunts way too much. They’ve jumped the shark. Because of the path monster trucks have taken in the past 20 years, nobody takes them seriously as a sport. I understand that in this free market we inhabit, it’s the market that decides what is popular, but I still believe that, if done correctly, a true open-qualifying racing points series would be successful and popular. Do you think this could of will ever happen? Or are monster trucks pretty much stuck in the “sports entertainment” category forever? I feel like the focus on freestyle and the “carnage and destruction” aspect takes credibility away from the sport. I feel like by now no one takes monster trucks seriously as a sport. Do you think this will ever change? Let’s get a convo going!
