1974 - Anaheim Kingsmen should have won DCI.  Bottle Dance, Shmottle Dance.

We need technology to upgrade old drum corps video to modern standards.

Maybe for some but most are serious. Someone was ROBBED in 1989. That was a quote. Even though the "corp" that won in 89 only lost once....and not to the 2nd place corp. 

I was the one that said Regiment got robbed. It’s all in good fun. You obviously stopped after that word and didn’t see the smiley face at the end of the post nor my subsequent replies.

Nah. It's all in fun. There are a lot of years where there was simply more than 1 great performance/show. Plus many of us are more knowledgeable in one area (i.e. brass or percussion for music majors/minors or those that work in music education) than another (I know nothing about color guard) so when a show that we feel is stronger in our more knowledgeable area doesn't win we might get a little salty.

BUT there may have actually been robbing, rioting and pillaging in 2012 if this call wasn't reversed.

Easily, 1988 was the worst decision.     Madison was 4.6 points behind on July 31.

I cited 2 shows that I thought SHOULD have won and many others that COULD have won. I never said the other corps didn't deserve their ring. Plus I said (also in the case of these 2 years) that there are often more than one championship caliber show in a season.

...then I went on to say, which applies to 2019 in particular, that I am a little salty because being not as knowledgeable and/or more careless about visual aspects of the show I heard and felt that the Bluecoats were better (but not in Percussion).  But I didn't necessarily SEE which corps was better and visuals are a huge factor especially when both corps are so close. As for 2007 there were clear show design issues.

Before this thread I was thinking of starting a thread about other shows that COULD have won a ring. Worded a bit different to keep the language that implies keeping the linguistics of something such as "1980 27th Lancers were robbed" and saying "wow the 27th Lancers were great in 1980 and certainly championship caliber"

Sour grapes. That's all I read. Thanks.
