Very proud - they are hanging in there with the heat. And amused by all the folks going ga-ga over their relative standing so far. Certainly pumped that they're doing better than last year, and enjoyi

For as progressive as Boston is with some elements of their show (costuming, props, etc), they had probably the most straight-forward raw drum corps show of the night. Insane drill, challenging music,

Prior to BAC's show, lots of folks chanted  "Eat em up Boston." Well I would say they didn't eat, the DEVOURED!!!! Amazing show!

well we can disagree. I for sure know the difficulty in it and IF and I do mean IF it is done well reward should be granted

Honestly, it’s not a matter of opinion. You see in the scores it being rewarded when designed and executed well, and debited when not.

There are many examples of crowds applauding (even standing O) for great (and risky) drill moments.  Never have I witnessed a scatter jazz run get such a response.  

Well, sure. Scatter drill is used a lot as transitional material to a climax.

that is not true at all. Ive seen corps spend literally days doing it...there is way more detail with every member than looking at a line and telling one person to move here or there

What does "hard to teach" have to do with " deserving to be rewarded" ?   Conventional drill is easier to teach because the designer has done ALL the work before a member ever sees it.  Scatter drill is taught ad hoc and far more difficult to teach because the designers didn't do the work BEFORE the members sees it.

or to set the mood for the climax. 

Absolutely! Not be insulting to Edirker, because I know it’s not what he is driving at, but scoring is not an applause-o-meter. Does crowd reaction matter? Of course! It’s one part of the equation, but not the only factor.

Has nothing to do with reward nor does the conventional drill. It has alluded that scatter drills were cheating of some sort or easier to do, which it is not. Again, a misconception is that the scatter or random movement wasn't planned out, maybe with some but those who do it successfully, simply not true.

 YES, and if everything was about standing Os then they wouldn't mean anything would it. Usually, even with conventional drill is the build-up to that moment which makes people stand.
