    I have only been on DCP since 2013-2014, so I wouldn't really know what people have said about BD, but have been watching DCI since 2009. And when I have been on DCP it is just to come to the Crown page and follow show threads

    I wasn't saying that they were more or less murky, but simply that Crown's is equally as murky (to me at least) and people are giving them the shaft for it, while the Bluecoats are getting praised out the @## for what a great show they have and all I can tell is that they end their opener with fast drill and they play loud jazz, and their ballad is amazing. I have only seen the Blue Devils once on Flo so I can't really comment on their show this year, but I was referencing past shows that they had done that were off the wall abstract yet people loved it. What I am trying to say is that Crown seems to be getting a lot of the heat for not having their show make sense and that is why people don't like the show (not all people say this) but yet they corps itself is extremely talented this year and is in contention to win brass and percussion with how their scores have been lately. I also don't know why people were so quick to put Crown down. It seemed that it was right out of the gate, and it hasn't stopped. Sorry for the long post and it was more of a general comment to everyone towards the middle and end.

    I've seen it live a few times and that brass is something else, and the drums are phenomenal this year. The thing that is really holding them back, as you alluded to, is how clean they are. They need to clean up the drill, especially in the closer and the end of the opener right before the ballad, and I think they will see a significant score boost

    While Crown's show idea is a little murky right now, there are other corps' shows that I just do not get at all, Blue Devils and Bluecoats being two of them. Blue Devils always have the abstract show, and now it seems that the Bluecoats are going that same direction judging by the past 2-3 years, but yet they get all the GE, and I do not understand why they do. Downside Up won GE, and I could never figure out what the show was really about, and I feel the same way about this years Bloo show. It's jazzy (not my favorite) and they are loud, but the show does not appeal to me. Crown's show is about a Beast of some kind (does not have to have fur for those of you who are complaining about the lizard uniforms) and while the show is a little hard to understand right now, it is easier to understand than other corps' shows (this is my opinion so don't jump on me for being "wrong"). I am definitely not counting out Crown yet. This seems to be the first time this season that Crown can use rehearsal days effectively instead of trying to finish the show like they had to do in Muncie. I am excited to see what they perform on Sunday and expect some changes to the music and maybe some effects to depict more "beastly" things. And as always, go Crown!

    I love Crown, and still stand by this show, but they have a lot of work to do. Last week was okay to say that all they need to do is clean and layer, but it is getting down to crunch time. Boston tied them tonight, and that has been a result that has been coming for the past few days. Not sure if they just had an off night with the weather delay, but they need to kick it into gear after their free day tomorrow, which seems to be much needed as some people pointed out that they looked tired. With that being said, I love Crown and this show has medal contention written all over it. Time to unleash the real Beast!

    Why do we always have to slot corps in the middle of July? It's just silly to do because we all know the season can change over the course of a few practice days. Do BD, Bloo, and SCV have good shows? Yes, but that does not automatically put Crown at a disadvantage. Let's just see how the season plays out and enjoy it in the process. Nevertheless, this is going to be a dog fight come Finals week. I will add that having Bloo beat Crown by .3 in brass is odd, and that is why some people will claim that it was an off night, especially since Crown has been consistently beating Bloo in brass for a good portion of this season when they go head to head.

    I agree. I have very high hopes for this year and the years to come. This design team seems to work very well together and will continue to put out medal worthy shows, but I just wish that people would give them a chance to grow through the season as they are known to do. Bloo is known for coming out hot, but Crown is a slow burn. That "stand up before they are done playing" ending will come.

    Fair enough lol. My point was that people loved what Inferno became and that is the standard for Crown now, and it isn't fair for them to be held to that seeing as how that was three years ago, and this is a totally different corps now. I do agree that semis was their best run of Inferno, but the electricity in Lucas Oil on Finals night was something I will never forget. Quite possibly my favorite moment.

    It seems that everyone wants every Crown show since 2015 to be at the level that Inferno was at Finals. That is not going to happen, because that show was so unique and amazing, but this show has the ability to be just like it. The design team knows what they are doing, and as much as I love this show now, I can't to see it at Atlanta later this month and at Finals in August.

    Another observation I have made is that everyone is on the Bloo train, much like last year. Yet, this time last year, Crown was losing to Bloo, and that did not change until the second or third week of July. Give the design team time to flush this show out and I guarantee that this will be a show that people will remember for a while. Like its been said, they haven't even started layering this thing yet, and they are still only .6 behind in GE. Get the visual scores up, and Crown will be a force to be reckoned with no doubt. One more thing: Most people who are skeptical about Crown's show this year have not seen it live. It is a whole different animal (no pun intended) when you see it in person.

    Me either. I watched the live stream, but did not notice anything major. Was kind of hoping they would ditch the dangling arm sleeves

    What adjustments did FJM make to Crown's uniform tonight? I read that they did do something but haven't seen anything about it on here P.S. Long time reader on here, but I hardly ever post minus a few back in 2016. I just enjoy the banter :)

    BEST FOOD IN INDY

    Iaria's Italian Restaurant is fantastic. It is a little out of the way, but the food is great. I went there the past two years, and it is some of the best Italian food you will eat. Hope this helps!

    Attended the public rehearsal today at Nation Ford High School. I only caught the last bit of it, but they sound incredible for it only being March. Cannot wait until they bring it all together come June
