  1. I'm pretty much done supporting DCI until Morrison steps down from the board at a minimum.

    YEA board resigns

    Nah, this is pretty normal. Tresona is just a rights-granting entity. As long as they continue to treat YEA as they would any other client vis-a-vis rights granting and costs then there's no issue. And this is easy to track since non-profit books are available to the public upon request.
  3. Oh I'm not a fan of that aspect either, but lemons and lemonade and all that.
  4. Honestly the speed with which they filled the major board positions was remarkable, all things considered.
  5. The reality is that Tresona is precisely what the music industry wants. If it wasn't them, it would be someone else. *Someone* would be filling that role right now. We can direct our ire at Tresona because they're the ones who did, but we were never going to avoid a Tresona-like presence. Given that you can't beat the system, you try to bring a rep of the system under your umbrella and work that way.
  6. Tresona isn't going anywhere. Putting someone affiliated with them on the board is actually frankly a *savvy* move. Someone on the inside, as it were.

    YEA board resigns

    At this point why not? It makes strategic sense. If everyone is going to have to play ball with Tresona at this point, why not get on the inside of that?
  8. Yamaha is going to do the right thing for Yamaha, whatever they perceive that to be. At any rate, Sean's letter is MUCH better than the BoD's and honestly the fact that it's still up there is mind-boggling. Take that exceedingly poorly-worded, victim-blaming mess down and just stick with Sean's letter.
  9. You aren't wrong. In fact I'd go so far as to say that the Cadets are the only corps for which most people immediately think "GH". This was by design, of course. The instant director-as-corps association doesn't exist for any other group. Not even BD, and David Gibbs has been running them for over a quarter of a century at this point. But David isn't a showboater and doesn't put himself front and center of literally everything that BD is about, so the casual fan doesn't really know him. Even casual fans know Hop.
  10. You know where they could have started? That extremely tone-deaf non-response the board posted on the YEA site could have not existed. How about that?
  11. That entire board has to go. Immediately. Alumni are all well and good, but who has the power to oust the board? Honestly asking. I'd put real money on the sponsorships calling to cancel by tomorrow. Does anyone think, say, Yamaha wants to their corporate logo plastered on YEA's website right now?
  12. If THAT is the response YEA is sticking with, then the Cadets are finished. Done.
  13. What it has been for the past 15 years or so: Try to out-BD BD. Bloo managed it last year, but that's the game now. I said weeks ago this season was over and that BD had it on lockdown. Everyone is chasing BD and they will take as much from them as they can and try to do it better than them.

    Averaging scores

    Considering Flam posted this in another thread: "keep changing the rules to get your participation medals and you still got your ### beat by BD! LMAO So how many undefeated seasons was it in the last 10 years? 4 How many do you have?" To a poster who was just having a discussion, I'm going to go ahead and assume his motives aren't that pure.
