  1. I agree so much. Her hair always bothered me. She looks more unique now and short hair makes you notice her face more. She doesn't meld into Molly etc. She does seem stronger this year and happy.
  2. Kat may truly be missing some traditionally expected dance skills, knowledge and DCC world ties. Her candid off-the-cuff comments may grate a nerve or two. But what can help is to see her genuine gratitude for the forgiveness, opportunity, and space to improve she is being given. Kat seems like she is willing to improve in all areas including how she represents herself. Kelly struggles a bit because she is unfamiliar with how some cultures lack exposure to the information she takes for granted, that everyone should know a-z without realizing the alphabet some use is entirely different to begin with so the expectation is wrong as well. Kat will improve in all areas I believe. Doesn't mean Kat is acceptable in all areas, but she will earnestly try. She is quick to admit shortcomings as well and not excuse them. She never whines why she didn't or can't. She works towards without false promise. That, I like.
  3. It's one thing if it's voluntary, but another when it's forced upon you like that. Employment laws here in my state forbid that type of activity.
  4. I noticed that too. Made me think the complaints and rumors may be true that she behaves entitled. Maybe all the early praise caused arrogance in locker room? Was that her who messed up the first kickline we saw? Love Kelsey! Love Bridget, love Caroline.
  5. Are there any pics of Meredith dancing at games? I don't hate her at all, even if all she does is cry. But can't understand why she ever made the team. So confused. Why bother. 😕
  6. Me too!! Like, aren't these ladies also expected to work and or go to school???? Do those count as stepping stones?? A high school graduate has experienced so little everything is a stepping stone in comparison. What would happen if Harvard university told students we get offended by those who see us as a stepping stone. Geez comon. Kelly barks out each season about ladies going on to do even bigger things having been empowered through being a DCC. WTH???? What happened to Madeline should be a lawyer...that's not better than being a DCC? Uggggg, just ugg!
  7. Would someone please 🙏🙏 pretty please catch me up on a couple things. #1 Have there been any post camp cuts? #2 Is either Kat or Meredith not performing on the field? Do they dance at all during field performances or hidden? #3 are there new people managing images that are uploaded? I am sickened by the deformed waistlines being peddled. And further warp young ladies minds of beauty and health.
  8. I may be alone on this entire post but.......I absolutely love Caroline!!!! She should have been point over all others.....to me anyway. How did k ignore Kash's recommendation. To me she is far more glamorous and camera friendly. Honestly it makes watching the pregame routine less fun. Geez, I give up. I barely remember the episodes air most weeks. Blah.....at least we are seeing some of the suggestions from this board come to life. More side by sides, more dancing, more group interactions. One gripe, and this may have been hashed out weeks ago. But it rubbed the wrong way for Kelly to ask about TCs Ancesty results. Like what business of theirs is it. I smell need to claim diversity so desperately.
  9. SO glad you expanded on this. Because diversity is not the same as diverse looks. Lawd knows they find much less significant and completely fictitious reasons to place or cut people anyway. So this is nothing to avoid, because...reasons...(cough limited scope of human value, and devoid of what real people want)
  10. I am coming back from weeks of being gone having my 12-year-old in hospital from a heart attack. So this really made me laugh hard. What's so funny is I deeply feel K&J&C lack true clarity. SO up each other's backsides poo doesn't smell like poo anymore to them. Geez....thanks for the laugh :)
  11. Just thought I would chime in after being away a bit for boring business stuff. Throwing this out there. We may see during the show's fitting episode, VK being given her last year fitting uniform and when she comes back in, her beaming and them going crazy how it is "too big", whoops, 'Way too big" for her this year to amp up how great she looks, and how much more fit she is. We know she looks better for now but geez. Hmmm, I wonder...
  12. Sorry guys here is my mini-rant- I am just going to say it. I feel distressed for the ladies that are the most vulnerable within the TCC/DCC environment. I never thought they would go this far. The DCC world inner circle may be tiny. But the extended world goes way past to include people you would not necessarily think of. TPTB and motley crew. To go as far as trying to discredit those who speak out on what they are witnessing as wrong. To make it a campaign to silence those who are suffering under such a toxic, favoritism geared rule, is sickening. Leadership and staff often stop even seeing it for what it is. It's their normal, I guess. Knowing that there is an expectation communicated to "support your teammates and protect each other from bullies", under the guise of social media education, but really meant to caudle VicSidious upsets me. I don't hate the girl and have no motivation to make her life difficult. But it appears there is zero awareness of how she makes others lives hard. TPTB only amplify that. It's actually not fair to VK. That is NOT the story we will get in Aug. We will hear how she overcame negative attention through the support of her teammates who love her, kinda thing. In the beginning, I had hoped she would be gracious towards others. Or at least fake it better. Every excuse in the world is being given to her. Oh and expect a major spin for the show. I had said Kelly was defiantly protecting and "showing" off VK. For me, it is not as much as whether there is talent present. Clearly, there is, but I could care less in some respects. It's the behaviors I can't stomach. I have had to help large health care corporations "re-educate leadership" when the sense of reality is so contrary to the facts, that turnover became a major financial loss. It never failed to amaze me how intentionally blind over-indulged leadership can become. It is not something that happens overnight. Whole boards have been removed because they end up reinforcing eachthers false realities. And I end up looking at the faces of 18 executives baffled as to why a 2nd nursing strike has happened. This DCC summer is like that to me. Just imagine being in camp, hearing all the specially crafted wording on "protecting, shielding, and wouldn't you want the same if it were you" speeches. Dealing with personalities who can cry and manipulate those around by "being hurt"..., or imagine watching a forever growing list of people mentor someone who already has an automatic in while you struggle and are under secret gag orders or be banished, type of emotional environment. They really have gone too far if hardcore persecution is what you face if caught speaking in any manner other than what you are expected to parrot and/or makes the DCC appear as a demiGod. As I listen to people it reminds me of brainwashing. Isolate young girls in intensive hours of evaluation, barely time to breathe and it won't be until they exit that abusive relationship that they realize too much was sacrificed at points. (Not everyone has the same experience, obviously). But I worry. It is the minority of girls that leave having had a great total experience? Some have it all while a DCC, most do not, or it appears to be something along those lines. Has it always been this way? Did I really miss it during the former years? okay working on 2 hours sleep, so this may read funny to me in the AM.
  13. Well, to each their own. I think what most are saying when expressing not watching anymore, is not so much as "NEVER" watching an episode. But setting every record reminder or protected DVR space. just is no longer a priority. Will not purchase the season etc. The hype has evaporated when we used to be more excited and happy to share the experience with the gals...etc, etc. People getting disenchanted is kinda normal for any show 14 years long. People stop watching all kinds of things based on ethical differences. That is the sticking point here, Doesn't mean we don't stay informed. But I hear ya. Tiresome...and as a viewer, my lack of viewership is one way to communicate. There is a reason why so many areas stopped including CMT shows. But I get your point, I do.
