    I do not think that any of the staff is going anywhere. As long as Harloff is there, Klesch will be too, and vice versa. They are what made this corps great by creating a brass sound that nearly untouchable (minus this year with SCV being absolutely incredible across the board). The design team needs to sit down and thoroughly think out a concept and come up with props that can be utilized to the fullest. When it comes to drill, the design head tells Sacktig what he envisions for the show, so it is not all on Sacktig. I give the staff one more year to figure this thing out and then we might see some changes. "Beast" sounds like and was a show that screams Crown. The design team just did not fully flesh out the show to where it could have been very effective and probably medaled. IF there are any changes this summer, I do not see it being with the the brass staff or visual staff, but strictly design (primarily Subel as artistic coordinator who seems to have been the mastermind behind this show after watching the Flo Marching specials they did for Crown). Only time will tell, and we will not get a first glance until around the Dec/Jan camps as to what they look and sound like next year. Overall a great year by the members, especially that drumline. As always, Go Crown!

    After watching videos again, could it be possible that the horns are actually fangs/teeth instead? Just now noticed this because I don't think that Sacktig would make horns or ears look like a teddy bear, but after a better look they kind of look like fangs to me now.

    Agree, but it probably won't happen. They hardly ever change the drill in the opener (even though they could stand do fix a few sets this year).

    I said kind of the same thing earlier. That semi-circle drill set right before the beast horns/ears in the opener has never been clean, but yet they insist on keeping it. Hoping that the next few days will be cleaning and then the rehearsal days in the Liberty Bowl will be when they add the changes (most likely the closer). Still some time, but it's running out fast. There is so much they could have done with this show, but failed to capitalize so far. We don't know what they have planned for the rest of the season, but there seems to be a lot of little things that could have made this show a very serious contender.

    A few observations after watching some of the Texas shows on youtube. The set before the beast horns/ears/whatever it is in the opening has never been clean and they have yet to change that drill for some reason. There has to be another way to get into the beast set without that weird semi-circle set that is not clean. Also, I noticed some messed up visuals from the brass while watching San Antonio on Flo's multi cam (kind of odd). Their feet in the closer are....not good. They are marching fast at some points and slower at some points during that movement, but when they are marching fast it is a mess. Other than guard I think that these could be things affecting their visual scores. Just some observations I had. Go get 'em tonight Crown! Close that gap some more!

    Anyone know if Crown had a rough night tonight based on scores, or are the other corps just that much better than Crown?

    Great score tonight Crown! Keep pushing!

    Those ballad changes sent chills down my spine last night, and it was that low brass at the end that did it. If they keep those kind of changes coming, they will silence the haters that have been putting them down since the first competition

    I have only been on DCP since 2013-2014, so I wouldn't really know what people have said about BD, but have been watching DCI since 2009. And when I have been on DCP it is just to come to the Crown page and follow show threads

    I wasn't saying that they were more or less murky, but simply that Crown's is equally as murky (to me at least) and people are giving them the shaft for it, while the Bluecoats are getting praised out the @## for what a great show they have and all I can tell is that they end their opener with fast drill and they play loud jazz, and their ballad is amazing. I have only seen the Blue Devils once on Flo so I can't really comment on their show this year, but I was referencing past shows that they had done that were off the wall abstract yet people loved it. What I am trying to say is that Crown seems to be getting a lot of the heat for not having their show make sense and that is why people don't like the show (not all people say this) but yet they corps itself is extremely talented this year and is in contention to win brass and percussion with how their scores have been lately. I also don't know why people were so quick to put Crown down. It seemed that it was right out of the gate, and it hasn't stopped. Sorry for the long post and it was more of a general comment to everyone towards the middle and end.

    I've seen it live a few times and that brass is something else, and the drums are phenomenal this year. The thing that is really holding them back, as you alluded to, is how clean they are. They need to clean up the drill, especially in the closer and the end of the opener right before the ballad, and I think they will see a significant score boost

    While Crown's show idea is a little murky right now, there are other corps' shows that I just do not get at all, Blue Devils and Bluecoats being two of them. Blue Devils always have the abstract show, and now it seems that the Bluecoats are going that same direction judging by the past 2-3 years, but yet they get all the GE, and I do not understand why they do. Downside Up won GE, and I could never figure out what the show was really about, and I feel the same way about this years Bloo show. It's jazzy (not my favorite) and they are loud, but the show does not appeal to me. Crown's show is about a Beast of some kind (does not have to have fur for those of you who are complaining about the lizard uniforms) and while the show is a little hard to understand right now, it is easier to understand than other corps' shows (this is my opinion so don't jump on me for being "wrong"). I am definitely not counting out Crown yet. This seems to be the first time this season that Crown can use rehearsal days effectively instead of trying to finish the show like they had to do in Muncie. I am excited to see what they perform on Sunday and expect some changes to the music and maybe some effects to depict more "beastly" things. And as always, go Crown!

    I love Crown, and still stand by this show, but they have a lot of work to do. Last week was okay to say that all they need to do is clean and layer, but it is getting down to crunch time. Boston tied them tonight, and that has been a result that has been coming for the past few days. Not sure if they just had an off night with the weather delay, but they need to kick it into gear after their free day tomorrow, which seems to be much needed as some people pointed out that they looked tired. With that being said, I love Crown and this show has medal contention written all over it. Time to unleash the real Beast!

    Why do we always have to slot corps in the middle of July? It's just silly to do because we all know the season can change over the course of a few practice days. Do BD, Bloo, and SCV have good shows? Yes, but that does not automatically put Crown at a disadvantage. Let's just see how the season plays out and enjoy it in the process. Nevertheless, this is going to be a dog fight come Finals week. I will add that having Bloo beat Crown by .3 in brass is odd, and that is why some people will claim that it was an off night, especially since Crown has been consistently beating Bloo in brass for a good portion of this season when they go head to head.
