  1. Yeah, I got that. I thought he was talking on a grander scale, using maybe less successful world class corps as feeders.
  2. That's assuming that the same corps are always in the same spots, which is clearly not true. Using the two corps I mentioned, Spirit and Crown, Spirit was 10th in 2002, and Crown was 16th. If you want feeder system in place, that's fine.
  3. Um, mlb to milb is not about superior to inferior quality. One (milb) is about player development, and the other is about professional quality. A corps (say, Spirit) is not about training its members to go march another corps (say, Crown).
  4. humorn.1. The quality that makes something laughable or amusing; funniness: could not see the humor of the situation (like someone right now).2. That which is intended to induce laughter or amusement3. The ability to perceive, enjoy, or express what is amusing, comical, incongruous, or absurd.
  5. Anyways, how about that drum corps thing? Ain't that awesome or what?
  6. How do you think the fans make the ultimate decision? What is this based on?
  7. You got me. I also wish I had your ability of mind reading. That would be awesome. Besides, it's not arrogance if it's true
  8. Who's forcing you to go to a drum corps show? The Gestapo?
  9. Probably because they've been a lot less since 2007, obviously, with West Coast inflation, venue issues, certain fan's creative issues, etc. Not a huge stretch of the imagination. Who wants to broadcast bad news blatantly?
  10. 1. I got your point, it's just not a very good one. I don't see how staging implies the importance of an instrument group. Seems like a flawed perspective. 2. Threats of leaving due to instrumentation? Really? Short-sighted much? 3. There are many who think it wouldn't either. It seems like many people on DCP think that if many people agree with their opinion that it makes their opinion that much more meaningful. Not really.
  11. Do you have any indication that drum corps is moving beyond limited rock genre instrumentation? I'm guessing not. Who cares what Joe DCP wants for the instrumentation? It's the corps who decides, and there's nothing to suggest the hyperbole suggested here.
