    Again dodging facts thrown back at you that doesn't fit your very narrow minded view point

    if you find Boston 2009 extremely suggestive in a sexual manner, I think maybe you should avoid all forms of mainstream entertainment
  4. despite the bad press, the removal of Hopkins opened more doors than had been previously opened.

    but your answer doesn't fit his agenda and just means you're ok with sexually exploiting kids as part of a show design

    to him, if a uniform shows any piece of skin other than face or hands, it's exploiting the kids.

    seems to me you're missing so much more of the premise of the show than sex. And considering what passes for mainstream entertainment today, sold to kids in fact, that show was down right ####### tame.

    and the example presented, Boston 2009, was a huge hit with the crowds all summer long. I heard nary a person mention a thing about being offended by the topic, or attire.
  9. again, don't forget...having the Cadets at YEA shows here adds butts to the seats, and the ties the Cadets have in the region and along the east especially could have helped save them a lot of money in ways going out west would not have.

    actually fan expectation is to be entertained...and being entertained can be viewed a zillion different ways

    Now darn you using facts and logic and reason

    No...showing neither are right. But in your absolutist views, you refuse to consider all options. you just hammer away at one with blinders on

    tone of voice, inflection, facial expressions...so much more missing. and i am not justifying anything on the show design. While I personally wasn't offended, you're trying to justify your viewpoint by only giving parts of a story to satisfy your end result. Again, I appreciate your attempt to wordsmith in a way to further your agenda, but when you fail to give everything in the proper context, you'll get #### flung back at you
  14. its cheaper to be in the midwest and east coast than California. just think of the cost to get everything and everyone out there. staying closer to home, they were able to network and leverage connections to have lower costs and drive far fewer miles

    well if i walked by buses and a bunch of young women were in various states of undress, i can see the pervert comment. there's so many missing details here it's impossible to put their reaction into a proper context...tone of voice, delivery, facial expressions you name it. I do appreciate your attempt to put a spin on it but there's a ton of details you're missing to help paint a true picture.

    interesting that someone who paid upwards of $150 a ticket, plus travel, motel and meal expenses will sit there and ##### the whole time and then go home and complain online too. And then continuing to do it year after year.

    New show announcements request

    A wise man in the activity once watched a staff come into critique and take their entire time to describe their show. Said wise man looked at them and said "if it takes that long to explain your show to me, you've already lost me, the audience, and most judges." And he was right. Thank you for that sage advice Mr. Hershman
  19. actually they did get the hammer...sweeping changes or you're done, and still on probation. At least they made the sweeping changes. Hence some red carpet treatment. if YEA hadn't removed Hopkins and the old board, they would be done, that much was made very clear. Not very public, but very clear. and what has helped YEA has been their very above board and pretty transparent actions since....the C2 guy gone, a staffer this fall removed when discovered dating a member.....Hell people with YEA that hadn't done anything wrong except relations via bloodline got removed.

  21. so awesome he brought Joel Moody in and defended him, even with his well known past! Human Being of the decade material!

    most kids mock the reaction. If you read what I said, parents are more affected by what they see. I've said it before, I'll say it again, in no other activity does the past #### on the present and future like in drum corps.

    i remember at age 7 people in the stands complaining about them. I thought they were the greatest thing ever
