  1. When did halftime get hijacked?

    I'm not sure what you mean by "football crowds" but at my school more people came to watch the band than the football team, and we had a good team.
  2. I had thought they opposed it though, as in voted against it. Is that not the case?
  3. I marched soprano, mello, contra, snare, bass, pit, and guard for the Dixville Notches BITD.
  4. Um...no. It is relevant to both threads and helpful to put it both places. People primarily interested in the cadets staff don't necessarily want to wade through pages of info on other corps so just putting it here is not enough. People who want the staff info on all corps don't want to have to go to multiple threads to get it so just putting it there is not enough.

    This is an excellent point. They might as well call it the "top other two".

    If you think I was saying I objected to Boston's ending, you completely misunderstood my point.

    To me, issues of this nature are far too complex to gain any insight from a dci show. About the most a show could do is introduce a new topic or generate new interest in a an existing one. Generally, a dci show is not an effective vehicle for engaging in discussion or making effective points about complex issues. Any attempt to do so ends up looking like an over-simplistic bumper sticker and if I want to read those I can always go to a parking lot or Facebook. DCI shows are, to me, much better at capturing the emotion of a concept than drawing political conclusions about it.

    This is another reason political messages don't belong in drum corps shows. You can't discuss the design choices without running afoul of the community guidelines. BTW I'm not picking on Crown here. They are one of my absolute favorite corps of all time. Their own rationale for changing the ending may have been to support a message of mercy over revenge. Or maybe they wanted to offend as few people as possible, which is understandable. My strong suspicion, however, was always that many people who wanted to get rid of the old ending were motivated by political reasons and not by mercy. And I was just pointing out that the fact thar no one seemed to object to Boston's ending seems like strong evidence to support that hypothesis.
  9. The montage he posted has lots of world class corps.

    How was the bad guy apprehended in the new ending?

    But they seemed so committed to the principle only a year ago. :D

    That's why all the same people who demanded a "merciful" ending to Crown's show last year lobbied tirelessly to ensure Bridget Bishop would be spared in the end this year.
  13. To avoid another Bovine Labor Day like last year, when a lot of people had a cow.
