    They already did that. It was hilarious. One guy would not even get in the arena after the so called training. Second guy didn't quite make it back to the fence. Third guy got freight trained,he just stood there like a Deer in the headlights.:biggrin_2551:

    Wasn't it last year when Dave Redmon came on this board and tried to explain none of what we saw was his fault and he was still the best driver around. Where are you now Dave?

    Yeah, Dave was a classic SuperTrucker!

    Don't know if the new guy "Porkchop" is going to pan out. On the first episode when the trainer Phil had him hook to a trailer and he couldn't figure out which way to crank the landing gear. Half way through the trip after grinding every other gear Phil made him pull over and ride ##### the rest of the way to Prudhoe! His attitude wasn't bad but his driving was! You never know though with these shows what they exaggerate and what is real. We'll see!

    lol...

    DAVE... I was going through CDL school and I watched the first 2 seasons on Netflix.

    Dave... yeah, I was like, OMG... this guy...whining all of the time, ALWAYS the victim.. and a p*ss poor attitude. EVERYTHING was ALWAYS someone else's fault.

    Alex. I liked him from the get go. I liked his Faith and his humor. Also how he just hung in there. Tough as nails.

    I didn't much care for Hugh or Rick. I did KINDA like Hugh because he doesn't take crap.

    And the Ladies... I stopped watching when they joined the season. I'm very happily married so some of the comments I've read here mean jack squat to me, concerning their "post show" activities. Remember, I said I liked Alex's FAITH? Yeah! This means I don't check out other women either.

    Ya, Alex is a real driver! He isn't doing it for the show and I like his wisdom he puts forth. Seems as if he has gotten in better shape for the new season. He had a bit of some health problems in the previous years.

    Hugh and Rick are like the "Dukes of Hazard" out there. I have never seen two individuals destroy trucks and trailers like they do. In the last season, Rick beat the hell out of his truck so bad the fuel tanks were falling off! He must spend most of his pay repairing his truck! Then he complains his truck and trailer are always a piece of junk!

    I stopped watching. It got too stupid. The whole thing with Dave and then pretending danger lurked around every corner. It just got dumb. It's cool to see a show based on trucking, but I wish it would be a little more realistic, or maybe a show based in the lower 48, showing the public what sacrifices we make or what kind of danger they put us in when they drive the way they do.

    I dont think that Porkchop guy did much worse than Maya did last year. But Phil was all up her ### and she was treated like a baby in the beginnig. I'm sure Porkchop knew how to shift the truck but Phil had to put his two cents in with the tobacco in his cheek, like he is the only one who kows how to shift a truck. This show is kind of like wrestling, when we were kids and thought it was real it was a good show but now that we know its entertainmet its not that good. IRT jumped the shark after the first season.
