Calling what he was doing "data analytics" is being extremely generous.

It was pseudoscience at best. 

I was being ... polite.   I had enough of the “panel is stacked for Bluecoats ... Bluecoats are going to win going away”.   Come on. It was going to be super close. And BD on finals night = clutch.

Now now.   We all won tonight.  These are the best kids In the world and why I go to shows year after year. 

FUN FACT: The "Crown" set at the end of Carolina Crown's 2019 show is a subtle nod to their 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007,

The neighbors must think that I'm abusing some poor woman by the name of Flo.  I hope they don't call the police...................

Brass Placement:

1. Crown

2. Bluecoats

3. Cavaliers

4. Blue Devils 

 

 

So weird seeing Cavies up there in brass.Finally! They need to do whatever it takes to keep Kevin. Missing pieces in the visual end. And maybe an addition or subtraction to the design team and I think a medal is possible.

No you don't. It artificially inflates the corps that go on later. If you have to "leave room" for other corps, the only one that can possibly get a perfect score is the corps that goes last. That's not fair. Why not let judges set their scores after everyone performs?

Actually, they can change their scores, so we don't truly know whether or not JP gave Vanguard a 20 before seeing BD.

Looks like what did it for BD were the 3 judges who flip flopped from BC to BD since their last head to head.   Stone (GE1), Chumley (VA) and Sturgeon (Guard).  I think Stone was the most questionable, because all the other 3 GE judges had BC over BD.

And? BD had two GE judges put them on top the night before. I thought the math had this panel overwhelmingly in favor of the boys in Canton?

You have no idea what's coming.

No, I mean literally, you have no idea what's coming.

I would suggest everyone hold their 2020 predictions for a couple of weeks...

A well-known drum corps superfan sitting behind me at the Open Class finals, who based on many other of his comments is not very knowledgable at all, predicted that DCI and BOA would merge within the next few years.

So when I see a comment like this from someone a trifle more informed, my mind goes in all sorts of crazy directions.

What's most questionable is your now thoroughly discredited insistence that judges always score corps essentially the same relative to each other regardless of the quality of their performance on a given night, regardless of changes to content over time, etc.  I recommend you revisit your assumptions and find happiness that they are not correct, as they are disrespectful to the judges and to the corps who they judge, and I would hope you would at least want to think better of the activity.
