Look at Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark and tell me heroes don't make irresponsible financial decisions all the time. /nerdcorner

It wasn't like BD won by a squeaker like 1 or 2 tenths. More like a point and a half. There is a difference who you liked and should have won.

Heroes don’t make irresponsible financial decisions.

<shrug> I liked Cavies more than BD (post-opener) - *and* I think Cavaliers should have won.  Those don't have to be mutually exclusive.

Lol. Fictional characters can do whatever they choose to do with their own fictional fortunes. That’s part of the fun. Poor Peter Parker, he’s a pauper.

I was just stating factual events. Quarters..BD wins by almost a point. Semis..i think 1.2 points...finals..around 1.6 points. The "should have one" just flew out the door.

Um... that's not really how this works.  See, me saying "I *think* Cavaliers should have won" means, to me, the judges got it wrong.  Margin in that case doesn't matter.

I've got no issue if you think BD was the best - clearly the judges did too, and it's a hell of a show.  As I said before, I think the opener belongs on the Mount Rushmore of DCI openers.  However, I still think it was the wrong call to have them in first.  I think Cavaliers had a better overall program and executed at a top level as well.

I'm not quite sure why this particular argument has become a thing?  I'm happy to agree to disagree.

I agree.  Guess I've never watched this show using HC.  Some of the best drill the BD have ever done.

So scores are supposed to dictate ones opinion? Weird. When I marched Madison in 1997-1999, our scores didn't reflect what audiences always thought should happen, and for years prior, and the audience voiced their opposition to the scores with boos. I guess they were wrong in having their feelings on the show/placements, and should have understood that the numbers being handed out dictated human thought and emotion.
