    Well how would I know that? Perhaps that's why other mods include a statement such as - offensive posts removed. Your "facepalm" snark is duly noted.

    It's a sad commentary on society today that the mere mention of patriotism is seen as a political statement. Which reminds me, to all fellow veterans out there, on this 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War, happy Veterans Day and thank you for your service. Or is that too political?
  3. So DCI is 20 years behind the times? Yeah, that feels about right.
  4. St. Thomas Aquinas, what are you doing posting here?!?!
  5. I think the court of public opinion is more important to the survival of dci than a civil or criminal court. And that's where the organization is failing in my opinion. It won't take much more bad press for sufficient numbers of schools to refuse to play host to corps or sponsor shows and make the whole situation untenable.
  6. Where did I mention the NCAA? It wasn't the NCAA that brought the house down at Penn State. It was the press. Hmmm........
  7. Yes I do. How could I not? You and others have posted about it dozens of times. So let's make this accurate. We do not agree as to whether Dan should have taken action. You say no, and justify it (in part, to be fair to you), based on the structure of DCI. I say yes, and say the structure is no excuse. This presupposes Dan had some knowledge. I don't see how he couldn't, when these things have been posted all over the place here and on Reddit for several years now. So, that's our disagreement, not whether I'm ignorant of policy.
  8. The buck stops at Dan. Blaming the lawyers, hiding behind process, this is not going to end well.
  9. Again, hiding behind process or policy is a loser. Reference Penn State.
  10. Then why DOES Dan seemingly act every time AFTER being embarrassed by a reporter? Does the reporter bringing something into the light of day make things verified facts? No. Then why didn't Dan tell her, sorry, I need verified facts first? And while we're at it, when there WERE verified facts concerning Joel Moody at Crossmen, why was the Crossmen director on the DCI BOD? Did Dan not know? By the way, is Fred Morrison still director at Crossmen?
  11. "Roman, Hi. This is Dan. Pioneer isn't participating in any DCI sponsored events until you're gone."
  12. If the corps wasn't going to act, then Dan should have. Just my opinion. The buck stops at Dan, for better or worse.
  13. I love you guys and all, but, c'mon. You simply cannot hide behind process. The excuse of - you need to understand, our bylaws don't empower me to act - just doesn't fly today. My point: even if not specifically empowered by the DCI structure, processes in place, bylaws, whatever you want to call it, action should have been taken. When in charge, take charge. Maybe the corps or person would have thumbed their nose at Dan and said, you can't do that. Who knows. Absent that, the optics today are that DCI will not act unless exposed in a public way, by someone outside the organization. This is a very bad look.
  14. Are you suggesting this has prevented or held him back from taking action? Hiding behind the BOD? I'm not buying it. That's like the head coach blaming it on the general manager. Good luck making that work.
  15. Just burn the whole thing to the ground. What a supreme embarrassment and outrage. DCI in general, and Dan specifically, fails to take action unless forced to, time after time.

    Why are you people talking about leopards? Is Tarpon Springs using leopards? How is that even allowed?

    We've lost our ability to disagree. Everyone toggles over to victim status the first time someone disagrees with them. "Mom! He's being mean to me..". It's gotten really old. Everyone wants to be in a grievance group so politicians can pander to them. Well, good luck with that. All you will ever get from the politicians, promises notwithstanding, is crumbs. Better to stand on your own two feet and stop playing the victim.

    Really. Screeeeeeee!!!!! THE KIDS!!!! That dog whistle again. I'm pretty sure "the kids" didn't design the show. It's the designers being panned here. But the poster knew that.

    You mean to tell me you were never part of a group or team where at some point you found yourself saying, "well, this is kinda lame", but you hung in there and saw it through anyway?

    Meh. Want to really impress me? Have a parent grab a bow and shoot a live arrow 120 yards end zone to end zone over the performance.

    But the obligatory rolling around on the ground and faux emoting, sure is super awesome.
