    I hear you but.... when a ship runs aground, the commanding officer takes the blame. Rightly. Wrongly. It doesn't matter. In most cases I think it's probably not the captain's fault at all. Nonetheless he/she takes the accountability. That's just the way it is. Similarly if a drum corps finishes well below expectations, is it entirely because of the executive director and / or director? No. Probably not. But they need to take responsibility for it. That's where the buck stops, fair or not fair.

    You guys keep moving the goal posts on me. That's ok but Tes if you want me to stop responding, stop changing the argument (not referring to you specifically just explaining why I keep responding). A comparison to Colts, PC, etc. I find to be, with all due respect, not what the Scouts organization should be aspiring to. They are two time DCI champions. They should be aiming higher. But I guess you think not. That's ok, we all get to share opinions here. You won't change mine. I won't change yours.

    Michael Leckrone. Now in his 50th (!!) and final year as director of the University of Wisconsin marching band

    This should not be a panic situation. It should be a well thought out rational decision that a new leadership team is needed. Unless 13th, 12th, and 16th place finishes the last three seasons are good enough, which all recent posters here except me seem to be saying.

    Lack of competitive success is the basis for making a change. I don't think any dirt needs to be dug up. If the board of directors doesn't have people identified ready to jump in as you say, then they are part of the problem too. Just like Cadets without the sexual harassment charges. (So yeah, not just like Cadets, but yes, just like Cadets in terms of needing to replace the executive director, director, and apparently the board of directors).

    So, are you good with the Scouts situation today? Leadership? Staff?

    Speaking of which, I miss Cowtown. Please come back!

    What do you mean? This has been a slow moving train wreck several years in the making. X said it better than I can. A corps not working on a backup plan isn't being wise.

    No no no. Never said that. I would like to see them replaced WITH the plan B executed at the same time.

    Yes. Maybe they're the only corps that doesn't value competitive success. Could be. It's cute to see the Scouts leadership team has a borg.

    Very predictable. Yet another rubber stamp board of directors? Gee what a shock.

    And who said they should just fire them without having a replacement? Why the deflecting? I am saying it plainly. I think CK and DP need to be replaced. If you disagree, fine. But don't try to turn the discussion into a strawman that doesn't exist.

    Is "this year" the only year the Scouts haven't made finals under this leadership team? That would be a "no". How many chances should they get?

    Not sure what you mean. Don't make a change, because the devil you don't know could end up being worse than the one you do know? That kind of timidity is not a formula for success. Just because posters on DCP can't spit out a list of excellent people who would be outstanding replacements doesn't mean there aren't any. C'mon.

    It appears he and DP are still firmly ensconced in the organization. Head scratcher.
