Here's a question: if you personally had to leave out two of the these four corps --Blue Devils, Boston Crusaders, Carolina Crown, and/or Cavaliers-- from a list nominally identifying the best performances of the 2010s, which two would you pick?

My non-answer answer...

I think if you leave any finalist Corps out of the mix you are losing something. Every organization possesses some style qualities that are unique to them. While the Blue Devils and Carolina Crown may be a step above the the Cavaliers and the Crusaders this decade, excluding them from the list causes it to lack some depth of character.

I love non-answer answers! So maybe this whole follow-up poll is poorly constructed, and I should have asked people to sub out non-finalists. Then again, maybe that would be too easy.

Alternatively, I could perhaps have run the polls not by placement but by corps, asking everyone to identify the best BD, Crown, Bloo, SCV, etc. show of the decade.

I figured that was going to be an inevitable series of posts - "Rank and Rate XYZ Corps Shows of the Decade"

Giving this poll one last nudge for anyone who missed it and wants to chime in before we call it done.

Eh that would be fun too, but it’s not wrong what you did. This final poll doesn’t show the 12 “best” shows of the decade. It shows the result of what you asked.
