I'm glad to see SCV making a run for it!

Of the top 12, it's interesting how the top seven from Thursday went up in scores, while the other five didn't.

I watched the stream last night, which before anyone says it, I know it is not the same as being there. But, how in the world is Phantom pulling the visual numbers they are getting?!

Don't get me wrong, the show is wonderful and one of the best out there this summer. . .but it boggles my mind that they are only one point behind Cavies.

It should not be that close.
Just because your hate is masked by "free thinking" or being "open-minded" does not make it right.

This doesn't happen very often, but I have to AGREE with TX. I have seen PR twice, and while I think they are exceptional musically, I really think their visual package is NOT on par with the rest of the top 5. I do NOT understand their Vis numbers either. (And that color guard.....UGH!)

Both BD and Cavies ARE exceptional, and either can win, imo.

Right. . .and their guard is coming in 3rd!

How is that guard doing things better than SCV, Crown, and Cadets (Bluecoats guard I find a little dirty).

I really like that Cavaliers show a lot. BD is looking great as well. I also think that PRs visual is pretty effective in that part where they run march across each other. Those uniforms work well for that on the green field ( well it looked green in the theater at least.).

Prs visual seems decent enough to me but I like Cavies a lot better.

When I saw both in Allentown, you could feel the energy Phantom Regiment's show was producing. It reminded me a lot of the intensity of 1996. They are on fire and want to be in the top 3. The only thing visually that bothered me was their rifle line. Yes, they can chuck the rifle in the air but they have no technique when it comes to catching it. The flag line isn't that bad. No way should their color guard be beating C. Crowns!

I agree they exude a good bit of energy and "attitude" on the field. I even think they deserve to be top 3, but that is where it stops. They should not be close to the other 2, especially Phantom. For the spread to only a point or so right now is just plain wrong.

As far as CC's guard, I could not agree more. . .I think their entire show is completely underrated.
