If in fact, they are putting their members in danger and not supplying a safe and healthy experience that is one thing  and  DCIs business IF it's the opposite NO DCI does not have a right to tell them what kind of a corps they should have. imo

Now if you are talking should they be a WC corps that's another story

Ok I’m talking about unsafe conditions which you say is DCIs business and I agree.  But that does not answer my question of what can DCI actually do.

It difficult to come up with a one size fits all solution. If your worth your weight then they could be placed in an advisory position and let the person they been grooming take over to have a younger face directing the MMs. dci is a business and in business everyone over 50 is looking over their shoulder not that it is right or good but does keep one on their toes.

I wish that were true and maybe in a few cases sure BUT I have always said some 20 year old should be knocking some off the pedestal and easily do it. BUT for some with longevity and I do mean successful longevity, it doesn't happen. I get together yearly with some staff and we kinda laugh about it. Successful longevity in this activity doesnt just happen. Some young staff ( as I did at 1 time ) don't get that

Oh forgot to also write. There is a place where the kids don't age out...DCA....lol

This is not the only account I've heard concerning these medical issues...Interestingly enough it closely parallels details that were quite similar yet were from a completely different source and therefore has only validated the account I was aware of about 3 weeks ago concerning the medical issue...

According to my sources DCI was aware of this medical issue at San Antonio...which has me even more concerned...thank goodness tour for Pioneer is over for this season...

sadly at that point, there may have only been so much DCI could do in the remaining weeks.

That seems to be what a number of people are saying.  And some people are also saying he is so enmeshed that he can't be gotten rid of without ending the corps.  Not that I know anything.  I don't even know why a guy with an italian sounding first name and a polish sounding last name always wants to play irish music.

that was said about Hopkins too
