My calculation was based on 273 to 253 = 20!!! (Prelim)
And then 279 to 271 = 8!!! (Semis)
So I saw SKIFFLE as closing the gap by 12 POINTS.
ok. Improved they did but not by such an amount.
How did you or how do you compare Invaders and Supernovas performances with Desperadoes. Are you in agreement with the disparity of points given - 5 more than Invaders; 10 more than Supernovas?
Ces I place marks before positions since marks determine the positions
Ray Aware and appreciated.
I use it as a guide. All performances were improved yesterday.'Tis whether improved performances were justly or aptly awarded; that's my interest. For the record, I do not think so at all.
Very interesting discussion about the judging!!! But there is just so much complexity in everything in life, sometimes you just have to live with THE RESULTS and move on!!!
I am NOT A KNOWLEDGEABLE PAN PERSON -- but I don't think about THE JUDGES (or blame them) anymore although I could see the argument that has been put forward.
DESPERS was 13 points behind RENEGADES after the PRELIM!!!
And now they are 3 points behind RENEGADES!!!
So through my lens they gained 10 points ... so I see what MR. A.L.Nunes is saying given all that was explained.
That is much more dramatic than the SKIFFLE JUMP to anyone who has been reading the DEVELOPMENTAL POSTINGS. And listening to the four performances (Desperadoes and Renegades) that BIG GAIN is hard to justify on many levels.
But in the FINAL ANALYSIS -- As HILARY CLINTON famously said: What Difference does it make anyway -- DUVONE is going to IMPROVE on FINALS NIGHT and win his SECOND STRAIGHT PANORAMA.
DESPERADOES and SKIFFLE are going to be in a DING DONG BATTLE for SECOND PLACE.
Actually, I think when it all shakes out the JUDGING will prove to be QUITE FAIR!!!
Really did sound much better in the semi than they did in the premiums. Trying to judge these bands in different yards really can't be done fairly. Some bands have two walls surrounding them - some have three. Trying to compare these band in their yards is like trying to compare great sports players from different eras. It can't be done. Only when the bands come together under the same conditions can we really compare them. I felt the judging was very fair so far in the large category.
