    The Cadets 2019

    I think the Cadets did a good job of analyzing their weaknesses from last season and they made changes as needed. Given the extreme situation last season, I feel the current design staff did a really good job and deserves another shot. I'm excited to see what this staff can do with a normal off season and no George Hopkins!
  2. I work with a women who worked on one of the upper floors of the building that sad day. She was lucky enough to escape the building just before it collapsed. A box was sent to her containing a few items from her desk that were found in the rubble. I will never forget the fear and sickness I felt on that sad day for America.
  3. Baseball is like watching paint dry. That is why Baseball is losing popularity.
  4. Boston Crusaders literally remind me of a college band. Yikes!
  5. Did DCI release the Cadets score for tonight yet?
  6. The Cadets will be on fire tonight. And their score will stay the same or drop. Slotting in DCI is real.

    Cadets 2018

    Cadets have best show of the year tonight...and their slotting holds. I know I will get grief for this but I really question DCI judging sometimes. Anyhow, congrats to the Cadets for not letting up this year...very impressive group of young adults!
  8. Where can I find a list of housing sites for the Allentown shows? Specifically SCV.

    The part of the show where the vocals add the most to the ensemble, you have to struggle to hear them. Doesn't quite make sense.

    The State of Drum Corps

    Having a bad day...are we? I'm pretty sure everything you mentioned was actually in the rules of competition. I must have missed the part in the current DCI rules that mandate every corps must do the same type of bass drum feature, do the same body moves, and wear sleeveless uniform tops! You need to chilll Bluzes!

    The State of Drum Corps

    My gripe: Bass drum features that sound like someone is falling down steps. And many times they are completely random and unmusical...and almost every corps does them! And don't even get me started on the copycat body moves that every corps does...almost like it is now a compulsory element. And sleeveless uniform tops...oh my.

    I knew you were right Jeff. I was in denial and reacting from emotion...not reality. It was painful to watch this great corps fall.

    Thanks for the response and your optimism George. And I am really proud of the Cadets and their determination this year. It just seems like the judging in DCI becomes more subjective and predictable every year. Really becomes frustrating hoping for the Cadets to make a move...and it rarely happens in the current judging system. I honestly believe the Blue Stars will beat the Cadets Saturday night...and I don't think the Cadets can do anything to stop it.

    It appears as though the judges are saying it is just a matter of time before the Blue Stars beat the Cadets. This season has turned into a typical Cadets season of late. They continue to work harder only to see their score stagnate or go down. I will be shocked if the Cadets are able to hold on to 7th place. The yearly slotting has predictably occurred.
  15. Is this CNN? This is similar to the nonsense they discuss!
