For Crown supporters, just about everything we put out here that in any way offers a modicum of support or optimism for what remains of the ‘19 DCI season, is invariably met with push back, skepticism, and on occasion outright hostility.

No walls on DCP, and I embrace posters’ rights to express their thoughts on whatever thread they wish.

Dunno. Been a fan of the activity [DCI] since it’s inception, Crown fan for 10 yrs, and a seasonal denizen of DCP for the better part of that. Not once in that time, have I felt compelled to rag on another corps. Hell, I recall being on both the Tilt and DS Up bandwagons and totally blown away with Felliniesque. My loyalties are with Crown, but I’m mindful of why I was drawn to drum corps in the first place: the insanely talented folks that produce and execute a musical production on a football field that rises to the level of an art form, unique in its own right.

 I’m sure this Polly Anna(ish) diatribe will open me up to broadside or 10, so sound General Quarters and standby for incoming.

And, as always, Go Crown!

On 7-18 you said:

We have three shows in a row to see how things stack up; and
Let’s see where we are on Sat night.

On 7-19 you said:

Thinking Crown and SCV will be battling for third.

On 7-16 Crown was 0.4 further back than on the previous meeting with SCV at Memphis.
On 7/18 Crown was 0.25 further back than on the previous meeting with SVC at Broken Arrow.
On 7/19 Crown was 0.05 further back than on the previous meeting with SVC at Denton.
On 7/20 Crown was 0.123 further back than on the previous meeting with SVC at Katy.

Always have hope, but Crown needs more than hope.

They need to improve relative to BC BD and/or SCV.  Maybe even pass one.
 

The objective data (which, of course, reflects subjective impressions of each of 7-12 judges) suggests that Crown is getting better SLOWER than SVC is getting better.
 

This is the type of response you get in CrownLAND, when you miss one of our staff meetings.

MMNJ, PN’s gonna hold your feet to the fire ‘til Brandt Crocker cries uncle...

Or this recap is all over the board...which it is. 

 

I'll see what Atlanta has to offer.

Why do I feel like I am one of the few CrownFAN straight shooters?

Straight shooter who thought Crown would take SCV and ended up almost 2 points behind...?

I agree about this recap.  Was hoping for the judges in GE1 GE2 and MA to be a bit closer to each other.  This is a mess.

I see the sheets all over the place, but 6th in overall GE is not gonna get it done. Hopefully more polishing and maybe a couple of addition can boost GE.

Simply amazing tonight Crown. The ballad rocked every one of my cells and changed me as a person. This is the best brassline easily.

You’re the sensible, moral center to this outfit.

Others may go a bit rogue or gorilla from time to time.

BUT, they mean well😉
