Got no hate at all. Scott Chandler knows drum corps.

A dropped piece of equipment that travels 10 yards from your spot is more than skin-deep - in my opinion.  It's like saying car crashes shouldn't be considered against a person's driving record.  

good one....lol.......actually in the defence of that. With the height and speed of equipment and hitting turf, it literally can bounce several yards out of control

...or the design. I got no problem with excellence, but that's just me.

Everyone enjoy your fabulous shows!

To be fair, I think some of it is genuine dislike for BD's approach to show design, which is fine. You can't please everyone, and trying to usually results in mediocrity anyway. I certainly don't enjoy them any less because it's not someone else's cup of tea.

But I agree, an awful lot of it does come across as pure contempt/hate, and those are usually the ones you seeing trying to tear BD down while simultaneously trying to prop up their corps of choice. Personally, I find it somewhat amusing. Fans get way more bent of shape than a lot of the members do. Most of these kids have friends in multiple corps and cheer each other on. It was the same when I marched. I tended to appreciate most of the shows we did get to see and rooted for my friends that marched in different corps. I now see that with my sons too.

I have heard that the Bloo run wasn't very solid last night with some music issues.  So if they tighten that back up they should be right there with Crown fighting for that 2nd spot

 

Eight brass out is a lot. Would impact music and drill.

As you know, I have never agreed with the basic concept of DCI scoring. It is in fact a self fulfilling prophecy.

I have unapologetic contempt for BD. Won’t hide it. But it’s not because of their success. It’s from personal interactions with corps members when I marched. Specifically how they carried themselves when they weren’t winning. Extremely classless. Maybe things have changed. I dunno.
