    I'm a Cadets fan through and through, but after seeing Cavies last night, the green men should definitely be a 1.5-2 points ahead. Their sound and visual are so much more polished. Cadets should be aiming to overtake BAC. They have the content to do it. And the GE judges agree

    Drove down from DC to Nightbeat. First time seeing the performance live and I have to say the Cadets are great. It's clear they are bit younger than the corps they usually contend with. But tons of awesome GE moments. I was sitting on the 45, and the crowd around me had a pretty good reaction. Someone audibly said "WOW" during the closer. The members and staff should be proud of how far they have come this season :) sidenote: BD....good lord. Don't see anyone beating THAT. And their brass should be scoring higher than Crown IMO.

    True, it's all about the tone of a post

    Saying a show has BOA qualities isn't necessarily a bad thing. It just is what it is

    Agreed. Their best shows throughout history are typically not story based. 2005 being the exception. Have engaging music, execute on marching, and integrate the guard. It's all they need. No need to go overboard with symbols and theme. As stated many times on here "less is more"
  7. Just because it replicates the source material doesn't mean it's a good idea to put in a drum corps show

    This is an excellent musical change, much better. Also sounds more "Cadet"-like

    I'll be honest. After the theater broadcast, I was not very enthusiastic about this show (maybe it was the multicam and terrible mic placement, idk). However, now that it has been cleaned up some, the performance level of the members has increased dramatically. I saw a recent run-through and thought....oh wow! They're good! Looking forward to the ending; hope its big, powerful, and dramatic

    I really really hope this show scores well in the end. #MakeDrillCoolAgain This show is modern yet incorporates many traditional elements with the drill and colorguard. Sheer power that I think is missing in many drum corps shows today. My only critique deals with the props. I think they are wonderful and are utilized in unique ways throughout the show. However, when the colorguard/brass members move them around or lift them up and down, they have some of the same issues the 2015 Cadets had. It will be a struggle to get all the props raised and lowered in unison. Just an observation; hoping they can figure it out
  11. Gurlll im always in the optimism line
  12. No, i mean optimism thank you
  13. Who said Cadets were going to beat Bloo? Nobody. Just that the gap is smaller. Doesnt really matter because (as it was pointed out) it's a partial panel
  14. Not a single person in ALL of DCP has said this. Try to find and quote a post that says Cadets will win it all....you wont find it. All someone did was express optimism in the trend of scores for the Cadets and you felt the need to stomp all over it and insinuate something that wasnt said

    The guard staff has finally gelled into what many of us were expecting it to be. Took a while, but theyre doing a great job
