The funny thing is, outside of the Dallas scene and this message board, nobody really cares about what's going on in the world of DCC. Don't get me wrong, it is enormously entertaining to read these threads and I get into the discussions sometimes too, but in the grand scheme of things is any of this REALLY important? You can't be a DCC forever and the organization is run like a private company. The rules aren't always fair and they change on the fly. A small percentage of cheerleaders move on to bigger and better professional endeavors but really most of them just go back to studio teaching or get married and have families. What is *really at stake? It isn't as if anyone couldn't do those things on their own. If a girl gives up her life to devote herself completely to training camp, that is her choice. It's a cheerleading squad and there are a lot of hens in the hen house. None of what I have ever read on here surprises me.
