  1. So, if this season is canceled, is the creative staff going to scrap this year’s concept?
  2. All I hope for is a show that the members enjoy to perform.
  3. That narration ruined the best performed show of the year and robbed a magnificent membership of a championship.
  4. Exactly! I have become far more skeptical of the Cadets hype machine in the past few years. I want to see positive results in the competition field like they’re accomplishing with rebuilding the corps’ reputation.
  5. This is a winner, and it screams Cadets. Thanks for sharing it.
  6. The members should ask for their money back. They’ve been victims of a bait and switch.
  7. I’m not going to fuss about the show design. It needs work. We will be in the 7-9 range this year. Hopefully, we’ll be seventh. I don’t want to hear the excuse of lack of talent. There’s plenty of talent on that field. I’m surprised that after the black unis from 2015 we’re using such a dark color palette again. It makes the good foot and leg technique look muddled.
  8. EXACTLY what I thought when I watched it. There should be players up and down the stair the entire show. It is underutilized in the ballad.
  9. Take sixty pictures during the weekend with a smartphone. Post two a day with clever text. Takes two minutes daily. Let’s see. What would you do? Oh, that’s right! Nothing.
  10. I have professional obligations that preclude camp visits. My customers come first in my professional life. Cones of silence aren’t communications. They’re death in today’s media environment. Ask any business owner.
  11. It wouldn’t take much effort. If they don’t want any show music leaking then that’s fine. As a Cadets fan, I want to know what’s happening with the members. How long does it take to do an Instagram? A tweet with a pic? Seconds...
  12. I can understand the need to wait in order to secure licensing. I can even understand waiting to announce themes until the season starts. What I find inexcusable is the nearly complete media blackouts from corps. There is hardly a whisper for nine months. It’s not like they’re reinventing the wheel, for the real innovation in pageantry comes from WGI. Honestly, if I didn’t communicate with my customers for nine months I would be driving a Ford Pinto and eating ramen every day. This practice has gone to an extreme.
  13. I don’t see why a show is unable to use props and have cool drill.
  14. Honestly, it’s a lawsuit waiting to happen. We’ve seen some gruesome injuries occur on the field before these contraptions and acrobatics started. I’ve seen the most safety conscious companies have accidents. It’s not a matter of “if”; it’s a matter of “when.”
  15. 1. 87 Do I really need to explain this? 2. 93 Best ballad EVER! 3. 92 Tenors, baby! 4. 84 Rumble! 5. 90 Knew it was going to win from first viewing. 6. 91 PRF! 7. 09 Sacktig’s drill in the ballad...MONEY! 8. 00 Battery, baby! 9. 13 Sanford, baby! 10. 05 Drumspeak! 11. 86 On the Waterfront 12. 03 More cowbell!
