  1. The future of the Cadets

    Yes, I would let my son march The Cadets, if he were of age (same with a hypothetical daughter). Right now, it would be the safest place to be, quite honestly with all of the attention and process improvement going on. Cadets are cleaning house ...but, who knows what else is out there.
  2. I wouldn't necessarily presume that. In some cases, I believe one can appeal to FB to have these things removed.
  3. I think, in parsing things, that - yes - the assault allegations are absolutely paramount in all of this. However, due to limitations, ability to build a case, etc, these _may_ not go to court. If there are some financial shenanigans at play (and I'm not saying there are), then that is easier to build a case and at least get some consequence out of it that involves prison.
  4. Yes, but the back office staff isn't huge. And they are probably trying to keep tour going, keep USBANDS moving forward, and whatever other day to day objectives they have. Additionally, I'm sure that some are involved in the "righting the ship" that needs to happen. And while those people are doing that, someone would need to cover the "day jobs" of those people. So, while yes, there is staff, and the show much go on, I think right now, they have better things to do with their time than cleanup YouTube. It's probably on the long list of to-dos somewhere.
  5. Interim CEO Suspended

    It's all been discussed on the larger GH thread, so if you want thoughts, head there. =)

    But, reporters are asking for more stories, which any follow up comments to that should probably be tossed over to the other thread where it's been an active part of the discussion. To save the mods the trouble.
  9. There are two issues, as mentioned. Obviously, the board is handling things terribly and the communications have been terrible. But, quite honestly, overall the communications from YEA/Cadets have been not so great for a long time (even discounting the GH stream of consciousness method). If they have recognized that they're over their heads in dealing with this from a communications front, that's great. It's what people 50 or 60 posts back were hoping for (for this particular aspect - clearer communication). But, as you say - the communications are one thing, and the substance is another. If they're not dealing with the substance, then all of this goes nowhere (or downhill faster).
  10. I don't think you're giving the kids enough credit for what they know. When I was in HS 25+ years ago, there was a scandal with a teacher and a student. And even then, I could figure out what was "bad" about it. Kids are more savvy these days, access to more media input, and with the push from the #metoo movement, they are woke.
  11. This is a much better communication in priority, tone and tenor.
  12. Seems like The Cadets needs a new director and a new board.
  13. News from Allentown

    Not reading this whole thread, but there are two new hotels at the junction of 309 and 78 (Center Valley) http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/abecv-springhill-suites-allentown-bethlehem-center-valley/?scid=bb1a189a-fec3-4d19-a255-54ba596febe2 http://homewoodsuites3.hilton.com/en/hotels/pennsylvania/homewood-suites-by-hilton-allentown-bethlehem-center-valley-ABECVHW/index.html

    Pretty much this. I don't doubt that GH has contributed an immense amount to the Cadets and DCI as a whole. However, he can't (and shouldn't) do it all. There are some areas that are not his strengths. He needs to let other people take on those loads. Yes, it is somewhat ridiculous to have (or have to have) these conversations. On the other hand, if one is looking at the long term stability of an organization, there are alarming red flags out there - both fiscally and reputation wise.

    Well, it's collapsing under its own weight currently. If, in the event of a significant structural alignment, one would think there would be more than enough people with skills and expertise willing to step in to fill the gaps. Enough past Cadets wind up in prominent positions elsewhere.
