if ever a group could recognize with the underdog Rocky Balboa it would be the Madison Scouts ---

I guess the "We never attack the members, just the staffs and admins" spouted by some doesn't apply here.

Hey Queenanne, I think your observation is fair but maybe not complete. You need to consider many things ... one of the things that both groups had in common was maturity/talent. With Star in 88 &

Ive been a life long fan of Madison and need to pipe in as a fan,  not alum, and not alum from any corps. Ive spent thousands on shows, gear and travel to see the scouts spanning back to 1985. This is

Or they could do an "underdog" theme. Music from Rocky, Rudy, Hoosiers, and Miracle.

I think it's aimed at the staff and BOD, but I understand what you are saying. I feel for the members. They must be relieved, in a way, that the season is over. I know I was the year I finished 7th. LOL.

Obviously people don't purposely try to insult the members but they still do with every single word they say. All this talk about ruining the legacy of the Scouts. Those members may not have made the decisions, but when they read stuff like this, in their heads they are going to be thinking "I contributed to this supposed ruining of the legacy of the Scouts"

It's a shame that some of their alumni on DCP are some of the worst in DCI.

Scouts should do a jazz show. 

I'm enjoying so many corps introducing Jazz music back to DCI. Would love for Madison to join the movement

Well their alumni are angry and I completely understand why. Hopefully the members won’t be thinking that because they had nothing to do with it. They did the best they could with the poor product they were given. That’s the staffs fault, not theirs. They performed and gave it their all every night. They should be proud of that.

That brings up a question that I was wondering about. On the "sheets", did the Scouts max out performance numbers while being dumped in content? I must admit that I'm not up to speed with the way scores are accumulated, but if what people are saying is true, it seems the performance numbers would be high while the product itself would be low since the MMs were given a poor show to perfect. Does this make sense??? Or is it like in diving where you can perform a really simple dive flawlessly but you're not given a high mark because the dive was not challenging, whereas a harder dive performed with minor flaws can yield a higher score than a perfect low technical dive?
