    Please be so. We can only hope!
  2. Cadets 2018

    Oh my. This place is slowly turning into RAMD. Does every opinion on here have to be challenged by you and Jeff Ream!
  3. Cadets 2018

    I'm with Mr. Willis on this. Really disliked the Cavaliers show this season.
  4. Cadets 2018

    Why does a corps the caliber of the Cadets have to place their hopes for next year on "lessons learned"

    I have lost all optimism for the Cadets. Puzzled why Hopkins is still listed as design staff. He needs to remove himself from the design process and hire a show coordinator/concept person. You can't overcome poor concept/design with bad props, tarps, voice, continuous changes mid-season, and cheese! They continue to make the same mistakes and expect different results! It really shouldn't be this difficult for the Cadets to get back on track...sad to watch!
  6. When I marched, I wasn't paying attention to our staff during a performance. There is no excuse for staff disrupting performances for the paying fans...period.

    Thank you Jeff for trying to have a civil discussion.
  8. Cadets 2018

    My reaction had nothing to do with your feelings about the Cadets. It had to do with the fact you always come across as though your opinions are superior to others. DCP is not very welcoming to differing opinions.

    Wow, you are really amusing!
  10. Cadets 2018

    Jeff Ream didn't validate anything. He presented his opinions. I gave my opinions on this forum just like others do. Do I really need to be put under the third degree because I have opinions you don't agree with?
  11. Cadets 2018

    You have your opinions, I have mine. You have a desire to validate your opinions more than I do. I really don't care who agrees with me. I don't need anyone to validate my opinions. Although, I do know some very bright percussion people who share my opinions about Cadets 2017 percussion. And you think Cadets percussion was easy? OK...you're entitled to your opinions.
  12. Cadets 2018

    I think the Cadets tape goes beyond mostly positive. I realize the Cadets pit had some issues and the battery staging could have been better. With that said, I believe the Cadets percussion was under valued by the judging community all season. Obviously this is just my opinion. I have been involved in this activity for a long time...I know a good percussion section when I see it. The Cadets 2017 was an outstanding percussion section and I'm of the opinion that they were under scored. All are welcome to think they weren't...not a problem.
  13. Cadets 2018

    I disagree...but that's OK. There had to be some downside for the Cadets to take 8th in percussion. Their tape does not speak of any real downside to their performance.
  14. Cadets 2018

    No, the numbers do not make sense based on his commentary. I don't care how great the judge is or the fact that there is only one show to go. Either his comments were fluff or the numbers were meaningless. Period!

    What does that mean? Wow, read between the lines much...I said no such thing. I was simply commenting on the excellence the Bucs are bringing this season...they are on a different level than their competition. As far as the White Sabers, I was just giving my honest reaction to my first viewing of them. Just keeping it real...that is allowed on this forum, right?
