Two words: Debbie Torchia. 

She either loves or hates a guard.  She loves Blue Devils and she put The Cavaliers in seventh.

Then why in the hell is she still allowed to judge?

So the only show you connected with was about being stranded, lost and needing help?

I didn't realize she was Norwegian.

Bluecoats - going on after SCV and BD was certainly going to be a challenge, but they rose to the occasion and blew us away. Definitely not a dull moment in this show. Vocalist wasn't as loud as I was

Crown is most definitely on the same level as BD (beating them in Brass and in several shows percussion as well). I would not be surprised to see Crown medal. They have work to do but it is possible. Certainly the hardest musical book. From a drill standpoint I do not see anyone moving as much as Crown. But this no longer seems to be rewarded which is too bad. It does seem the name of the game is big movable props and keeping everything down front. Not saying I do not like props (actually really like SCVs this year) but the days of a visually demanding drill appear to be a thing of the past (in my opinion).

Every judge this year disagrees with you. I’m not trying to be rude, but it is that simple. They certainly do not have the hardest music book. Visual scores also don’t depend on the distance that members travel. For god’s sake, they do a FTL for half a movement, then stand and jam for the last half.

 

Drill being demanding for the sake of being demanding, I agree with you 100%. That’s mostly going away.

Judges cannot make up their minds on BK GE. No other corps has such a great degree of variation in the 4 subcap scores.

If you look at it closely, the GE 1's are separated by the smallest margin possible.

The GE 2's, which are judged differently than GE 1, we're the same score from both judges.

As soon as I saw Torchia, Kuhn, Saucedo, and Phillips on the panel I knew it would be a rough scoring night for The Cavaliers.

I like judges that aren’t afraid to be bold.

This attitude is why people make fun of DCP.

I could ask that question about half the judges!

to clarify, I was referring to the rankings, not the points.
