  1. Favorite year as MM

    Cadets 2000. Period.
  2. Cadets 2018

    I'll give you 2015 (until the end of the season), but everything else....ehhh...
  3. Cadets 2018

    I'm hoping for much, MUCH better year than 2017, 2016, and 2015 combined. I wish they would become competitive again. But time will tell.

    You missed my point. I wasn't specifically blaming the director for everything. I was trying to say everyone on this site blames him for everything, and at the same time, should be able to lay the responsibility upon him to find the staff that is able to produce quality results....and I like how you conveniently omitted everything else in my post. And do we all know why the staff truly left (other than the staff member with the family circumstance)? Or is it just conjecturing? I believe its the latter. Regardless, The same director who was able to hold the staff together for a decade should also have the ability to find a great staff.

    While I agree with some of what you said, I was also part of a Cadets corps that went through a major staff turnover, but it was a staff turnover for the better (in my opinion, and the success of that season proves my point). Now I will grant you that they also had a relatively newer corps than we did; I firmly believe a better staff could have been obtained if certain circumstances hadn't happened. Complacency should not be the norm nowadays. Corps are getting better and more competitive through out each season. And as Jeff Ream said, Cadets now seem to be the corps that is constantly playing catchup. While we can blame the director for many of the staff leaving, the director should also be able to obtain staff that provides the type of education that the members need to stack up to the rest of the top 6.

    If that is what you want to take from it, so be it. I consider it sub-par for Cadets standards so if you don't like that, I can't help your feelings. I stand by what I said 100% regardless of whether or not you like it.
  7. Cadets 2018

    Sorry, I stand by what I said. You may have thought it was a quality program. I did not. Cadets have built a legacy that they should maintain. BD is able to live up to theirs. Why shouldn't Cadets? I will not dumb down my standards for Cadets because everyone else has chosen to. I know of what they're capable, and I won't settle for anything less. I'll always be critical when their shows seem as though they're begging for applause. When Cadets placed 4th in the past (90s), they were STILL the sh#t. Refer to the bottom quoted post:

    Lol that was hilarious. Still, Crown is able to deliver a quality product.
  9. Cadets 2018

    These aren't unrealistic expectations. They should be able to find the best staff to make them competitive. If people are willing to accept the cadets being a 7th place corps, then i would suggest they raise their expectations. It is unfair to require members to pay the type of money their paying only to march in a sub par corps. I wouldn't do it. That's just me.
  10. Cadets 2018

    Compare the Cadets of the 90s to the Cadets of the 10s. That should give you an answer.
  11. Cadets 2018

    Lol, it wasn't meant as an insult. If you took it that way, oh well. I'm simply using the comments of previous years to temper the February excitement and bring people back down to earth. Cry me a river. I have plenty of reason to take this approach.
  12. Cadets 2018

    It all sounds so familiar. I hope they have a much better year than the last few years. However, I'll believe the "hype" when I see and hear it.
  13. Cadets 2018

    So I keep hearing stuff about GH actually directing the design. Is this actually true or is it all conjecture? I'd like to believe that he hired these people because of their talents, and since I have no inside information on what's actually going on, it'd be nice to get some facts about it.
  14. Cadets 2018

    Think in this day in age, it's just best to hope for the best and expect the worst. That's my approach lately with this drum corps.
  15. Cadets 2018

    Hey that's what you get when you want the "uniform" to be modernized.
  16. Cadets 2018

    Wait, what did I miss?
  17. Cadets 2018

    Since I am currently on Tokyo time, I thought you were talking about tonight. Unfortunately I am a day ahead of schedule.
  18. A corps should do this

    That is so freaking cool!
  19. Cadets 2018

    Then replace that instead of trying to replace someone else's.
  20. Cadets 2018

    Yeah, people in glass houses and all that...
  21. Cadets 2018

    What else do you personally know about me? If you have a problem with what I said, you can always ignore it too. The irony of a person who constantly lectures all, yet tries to call out someone else for what he deems lecturing.
  22. Cadets 2018

    Who said I was dictating who could and couldn't reply to my posts? And thanks for the "education," but I know what kind of forum this is.
  23. Cadets 2018

    I always love when people I've purposely ignored choose to comment on what I've said as if I'm gonna change what I said. We've had enough hype posts in the past 7(?) years that I am entitled to feel the way I do just as those are entitled to feel the way they do.
  24. Cadets 2018

    While you may be right (emphasis on MAY be, though you read some of the statements of the person to whom I was replying, some of them do rise to the level of "hype" in my opinion), my post was meant in a general sense in that every year we get people who've been to the camps, or read the posts of staff and director alike, and post reasons of why they think we should be excited. So I stand by my statement. I want action. Not posts.

    Corps Y needs to step their game up.
