    You’re right. Asinine arguments for coed based upon not beating BD, backed by further asinine comments about how the alums feel about placement means that you aren’t worth taking seriously. More males march than females by a wide margin, yet you claim Scouts are cutting off 1/2 the talent pool. Move along. You’re out of your element.

    You should re-read my edited post. Just ridiculous assumptions.

    You say you don’t have statistics about how many more males march than females, then you say the Scouts are excluding 1/2 the talent pool. Just silly. Also, you obviously haven’t read a thing I’ve said in either this thread or in any previous Scouts threads about my opinion of the current state of things or the admin, therefore, your opinion of what I think is misguided and unimportant. Goodbye. p.s. You still are losing at making a case for your opinion.

    Agree that it isn’t the current admin. And he had just gone full-bore into the “us against everyone” mentality and it was hurting the competitive success of the corps.

    That’s where you’re wrong. Scott had reached the end and needed to go. His paranoia of the politics of DCI had gotten to tin-foil hat levels. Love the guy and loved his leadership, but he needed to move on. I don’t think expecting that KIND of leadership from his successors to be a bad thing. You don’t have to be Scott Stewart to lead the Madison Scouts.

    Well, in one respect, you’re right...as there are a lot of alumni drinking the koolaid being fed to them by this admin. But there are also a LOT of upset alumni that aren’t always as vocal. It seems to be a pre-2000’s group, versus a post-2000’s group that is like:

    Sad. And something I’ve suspected for awhile now.

    Also, most corps are already male-heavy. Outside of guard, there are many more males than females marching.

    How many times have Bluecoats beaten BD? Or the Colts? Or any number of other co-ed drum corps? Lots of research to not make the point you were trying to make.

    There is no lack of talent, seeing as there are only 2 all-male corps in existence today.

    Preach. I’m surprised at how many guys I marched with in the mid-90’s are cool with this.

    The Madison sound? Everyone sounds the same anymore, for the most part. Put a blindfold on and you wouldn’t be able to pick the Scouts out of a 3 corps lineup.

    I’m going to have to go back and look for specific examples of this, but I said that this year was a trial balloon for taking the corps coed and I was laughed at and told I was flat-out wrong. Turns out I was right, as that is an issue the admin is mulling right now. That will be a mistake, because it strips the corps of any unique value it has left. I’m sure @tesmusic is all for it and has his pom-pons in hand so he can play cheerleader, but this is why I don’t trust the leadership of the corps and think they need to be removed. I’ve just seen the product on the field and been distrustful of the direction. Just a gut thing. Nice to finally have my fears justified.

    And subsequently failed miserably.
