Chris Komnick fired Jim Mason. Let that sink in. An egregiously stupid management decision. 

Yup.

I’ve questioned Chris and I have been critical of him in direct communications and he has always responded well to me... Look, I don’t like a lot of decisions that have been made either, but to say that Chris and/or Dann are awful goes too far. They’ve had huge positive influences on hundreds of Scouts in the last 10+ years.

The results are awful. The Madison Scouts are no longer a destination drum corp. Failure like this should result in a quick firing. There is no defense for this regimes results.

What was the motivation for firing him? They finished in 11th in Mason's last year - I guess Komnick thought they could do better? 

I really haven't looked at the trajectory of Madison's finishes lately. Mason's five year average placement was the best since Sal Salas.

I’ve not said anything of Dann, just FYI. As for positive influences, I can agre with that on DP, CK though, not so much.

Definitely disagree with you about Dann.  Dude is super hypocritical and a terrible leader by example.  At least he was in 2008 and 2009.  He was a fine visual tech in 2007, but not a good corps director in 2008 and 2009.

 

Also CK and DP seem to be two peas in a pod.  As I see it, they are one in the same when it comes to the administrative issues with the corps right now.

Please do not make personal attacks on individuals. That is against the DCP guidelines.

Noted.  Can you provide some clarification?  If I had qualified my claim regarding hypocrisy and leadership-by-example, would that have mitigated the issue?

Not aimed specifically at you.

Read back and you will see personal comments on the people involved. I am leaving it at that for now. 

Everybody needs to read what they write prior to posting. If your comment can be perceived as a personal attack....change it before posting.

It was a control thing.

Wilco.  Did not think so, but wanted to be sure!  Thanks for responding.
