Added a comment about feature How to Make Everyone Happy with Rampage 10/29/2018 11:11 AM

The problem I see with above proposal is: Brendawg, (or whoever) is still gonna feel like someone #GotRobbed - because scores will still come from a single panel of judges......And keep in mind -you’re never gonna keep everybody happy either because:
1. the Freerider “purists” are gonna want to see who can straight air the most 60-90 ft drops.
2. The DH WC race fans wanna see who can fly down the mountain in 30 seconds or less
3. Slopestyle fans are gonna want to see who can Bike Flip 360 off the Oakley Icon Sender.

Really- they should just keep everything the same and broaden the judging pool. For example: have all the diggers be a panel of judges, and have all the online viewers be a panel of judges as well. (They already are polling viewers anyway). Then average the traditional judges scores with the diggers scores and online viewers scores for an average of all three. Who is really gonna be able to say someone got robbed with a format like that? Then everybody can still ride and build their own way. Plus I think the online viewership would go from 20k to 40k

The solution could be just as simple as giving the judges the flexibility to adjust scores accordingly after seeing all the runs. Or also having an independent “watch dog” panel of 5 people who behind the scenes-throw a “red flag” if they feel someone’s

Stone cold true is: The undercurrent of Rampage judging is really about who is gonna make the best ESPN highlight reel -or go viral on Instagram/YouTube/ Facebook. No matter what they claim- It is not about who has the most creative line, technical skill ... more »

I am personally going to box up all the old 26 inch tires I have laying around the house and send it to their corporate office in Akron Ohio, with a note saying: You killed these, you can bury them
