  1. I understand you have not read all 400 pages of this thread, where numerous people have acknowledged in so many words that their Cadet-fan-pain is nothing compared to the abuse-harassment-pain of the victims. Hopefully, you understand that we can discuss both without negating their relative significance.
  2. The future of the Cadets

    - There are just as many theorizing that Cadets will immediately and permanently improve their reputation and competitive outcomes now that the directorship and BOD have changed. - I think most people understand and make the distinction between "bad people" and "bad organizations", and will not shun the organization for what bad people did in the past (especially when so many steps are being taken to remove the bad people, and make sure nothing remotely like that can ever happen there again).
  3. Wow. Did you forget that Raiders TWICE did the same thing, threatening to cancel portions of their remaining 2012 and 2013 tours in late July of each of those years if their pleas for donations did not raise enough to cover the shortfall? I see you posting about it here back in 2012...
  4. Though this comment was directed at BRASSO, allow me to respond with one such example from within this thread:
  5. And it will get worse because of: - this mantra about "who KNEW and did nothing" - the idea that you KNEW if you heard a vague rumor from six degrees of separation - the expectation that DCI somehow has ownership, parentage or similarly overriding responsibility and authority over multi-program arts organizations who run drum corps
  6. By that standard, anyone who read RAMD back in 2003 should be suspended from their job pending an investigation. Meanwhile... ... by that same standard, the reporter should also be suspended from her job pending investigation, for failing to follow up on the other accusation with the redacted name.
  7. A bit of concern after you posted that the corps has debt, and no emergency fund. Your attempts to reassure are backfiring. But that does not dampen my hopes for a successful 2018 and future for the corps (plural).
  8. As I understand it, the Cadets have never undergone the type of evaluation that DCI requires for new and advancing corps. This will be the first time they look "under the hood" to assess the health of the organization.
  9. Exact opposite. Failing to suspend Sean King pending investigation would have put the corps closer to incurring further actions from DCI.
  10. I edited your post for the sake of accuracy, and because "suspended pending an investigation" is apparently a phrase you need to become more familiar with. Now, since it is so clear to you how "they" planned this all out, you can tell us who the next YEA! CEO will be.
  11. Silence would have been better than this pathetic, two-sentence nothing burger.
  12. All that you refer to in this post are age rule violations. True, DCI staff are empowered to enforce contest rules. But there is nothing in the rulebook about sexually abusive corps directors.
  13. All that you refer to in this post are age rule violations. True, DCI staff are empowered to enforce contest rules. But there is nothing in the rulebook about sexually abusive corps directors.
  14. To clarify, it is a vote of the member corps that decides whether to expel one such corps from DCI membership. That is not something Dan Acheson can do by himself, as the underlined words above seem to imply.
  15. So what? Most of the events of this thread topic happened longer than eight years ago. We can't dismiss everything that ever happened prior to 2011.
