  1. It is currently available to watch on demand. The link is on their FB page.
  2. Those things are happening because the salary cap made the NFL incredibly competitive and created unprecedented parity. There are anomalies like Patriots and Brown who perennially excel or suck, but the percentage of teams that change year to year in the playoffs has been dramatic. When fans believe their team can win any season, it creates a rabid environment. NFL viewing is through the roof and stadiums fill up even with high ticket prices. Fair competitiveness is what is driving their massive growth. How much change has their been in the Top 8 in the last 10 years of DCI?
  3. Here are the official Coronavirus guidelines for those that get might get mixed messages: 1. Basically, you can't leave the house for any reason, but if you have to, then you can. 2. Masks are useless, but maybe you have to wear one, it can save you, it is useless, but maybe it is mandatory as well. 3. Stores are closed, except those that are open. 4. You should not go to hospitals unless you have to go there. Same applies to doctors, you should only go there in case of emergency, provided you are not too sick. 5. This virus is deadly but still not too scary, except that sometimes it actually leads to a global disaster. 6. Gloves won't help, but they can still help. 7. Everyone needs to stay HOME, but it's important to GO OUT. 8. There is no shortage of groceries in the supermarket, but there are many things missing when you go there in the evening, but not in the morning. Sometimes. 9. The virus has no effect on children except those it affects. 10. Animals are not affected, but there is still a cat that tested positive in Belgium in February when no one had been tested, plus a few tigers here and there… 11. You will have many symptoms when you are sick, but you can also get sick without symptoms, have symptoms without being sick, or be contagious without having symptoms. Oh, my.. 12. In order not to get sick, you have to eat well and exercise, but eat whatever you have on hand and it's better not to go out, well, but no… 13. It's better to get some fresh air, but you get looked at very wrong when you get some fresh air, and most importantly, you don't go to parks or walk. But don’t sit down, except that you can do that now if you are old, but not for too long or if you are pregnant (but not too old). 14. You can't go to retirement homes, but you have to take care of the elderly and bring food and medication. 15. If you are sick, you can't go out, but you can go to the pharmacy. 16. You can get restaurant food delivered to the house, which may have been prepared by people who didn't wear masks or gloves. But you have to have your groceries decontaminated outside for 3 hours. Pizza too? 17. Every disturbing article or disturbing interview starts with " I don't want to trigger panic, but…" 18. You can't see your older mother or grandmother, but you can take a taxi and meet an older taxi driver. 19. You can walk around with a friend but not with your family if they don't live under the same roof. 20. You are safe if you maintain the appropriate social distance, but you can’t go out with friends or strangers at the safe social distance. 21. The virus remains active on different surfaces for two hours, no, four, no, six, no, we didn't say hours, maybe days? But it takes a damp environment. Oh no, not necessarily. 22. The virus stays in the air - well no, or yes, maybe, especially in a closed room, in one hour a sick person can infect ten, so if it falls, all our children were already infected at school before it was closed. But remember, if you stay at the recommended social distance, however in certain circumstances you should maintain a greater distance, which, studies show, the virus can travel further, maybe. 23. We count the number of deaths but we don't know how many people are infected as we have only tested so far those who were "almost dead" to find out if that's what they will die of… 24. We have no treatment, except that there may be one that apparently is not dangerous unless you take too much (which is the case with all medications). 25. We should stay locked up until the virus disappears, but it will only disappear if we achieve collective immunity, so when it circulates… but we must no longer be locked up for that?
  4. And you would be wrong. Several corps are keeping $1500-$2000 of the tuition already paid in, and billing for the difference if a member had yet to pay that amount.
  5. There could many other ways to have a season and tour without what we currently know as DCI. Individual corps could take on more production of shows. Smaller regional bodies could re-emerge. Possibly even an entirely new entity could be born to do what DCI once did. The member corps basically govern themselves. DCI is a show producer/promoter. Others could fill the void.
  6. That does not make it an airborne transmission. That is a person to person transmission. You were wrong.
  7. It's either airborne or not. You are the one who does not understand the difference. Maybe you could actually admit you were mistaken? Doesn't seem like that happens much here.
  8. And that research created an artificial laboratory environment in a rotation drum designed to force droplets to stay suspended in air indefinitely to measure if they degrade. It used a nebulizer to create the droplets which are smaller than those created by humans and hang in the air more effectively. It does not replicate anything closely resembling what actually happens on planet earth.
  9. But saying it is airborne is more than semantics. It creates fear and panic by falsely having people believe they can contract it simply by breathing air in a public place. I will call out false statements about this virus everytime I see them. Details DO matter when we are fighting something this serious.
