  1. There's definitely been some kind of shift in judging. BD was absolutely dominant until 2016.. which makes a streak of four years they haven't won guard. I'm wondering if their tendency to perform all of their features without moving underneath them is a fad that is on the way out.
  2. I marched Cavaliers 1995 and this may sound odd but if there's any show I would like to see from the stands it would be that one. I remember our horn sergeant getting injured on a free day mid season. He got to watch us perform a few times and I was so jealous lol.
  3. Crown played his theme from "LOST" in their space show. Probably my favorite thing they did that year
  4. The Cavaliers ballad was a showstopper and my musical and emotional highlight of the summer. When they reached the climax, with the guard spread endzone to endzone performing some truly incredible flag work.. well it was just stunning.
  5. How long has that been an option? We used to get the yellow carbon paper copy of judges sheets that had specific #'s and comments on them.
  6. The judges have given BD 10's in rep a few times in the last six years even when they performed second to last. And Boston got a 10 in guard rep going on 6th to last this year. Makes no sense, but that's DCI judging for you.
  7. First time I've seen them in person but some of the flag work was a little sloppy :(
  8. Better to get the heads up tonight instead of Saturday I guess
  9. Is it the yellow line? Cause one of the Crown guard girls definitely toed it at the end of their show
  10. We have sat in the Phantom block (141) the last two years, but they were sold out by the time we bought tickets so this year we're in The Blue Stars block (139). Kind of glad since a couple of shows (Cavaliers and Crown specifically) are side 2 focused :)
  11. Cavaliers were so dirty in Detroit that they didn't even get a score.
  12. After what happened to Crown at 2017 finals I don't think any corps would pass a motion to prohibit recorded vocals. Live singing was a huge trend for a while but that epic failure pretty much killed it. Bloo was one of the only corps that had a vocalist last year and now they've followed suit and are using pre recorded tracks like everyone else. The crazy thing with Crown is, that while it was super risky to devote half of a show to a featured vocalist, the fact that her mic went haywire on the most important night of the summer didn't effect their music scores at all. It makes me wonder if vocals aren't a factor in the minds of the judges, and if so why not?
