Cut: Brennan, Hannah, Lily and Meredith

Current team (likely):

From Cassie 

She gave approval to post it... I asked her opinion about everything that was going on.
~~~~~~~

I’ve been wanting to speak on it, but I didn’t think anyone cared about my opinion haha. Soooo... my biggest frustration is that the girls who were cut kind of made it seem like they were forced to go in the bubble. They actually had a choice. They 100% did not have to go. Their cuts had NOTHING to do with their opinions on the whole situation.... it was regular dcc stuff- dancing, attitude in previous years as a dcc, look, etc... that’s the name of the game! I just hate that Kelli and my mom are getting a bad rap because they were just doing their jobs! And when the girls who were cut claimed that the bubble was “unsafe”- CMT shelled out hundreds of thousands of dollars to hire a health group to regularly test the girls, they had a Covid “coach,” they rented out an entire tower of the Gaylord, and every single person had to test negative 3 weeks in a row to enter the bubble. It’s insane to accuse them of putting their lives at risk The test that came back “positive” that shut down production on the last day, turned out to be a false positive. 
I just feel that they are being scrutinized because a couple girls have a bad taste in their mouth after being cut. My rookie year, they cut 5 vets.... it happens.

I also find the accusations of them putting people their health in danger ridiculous. I for one find the hate they recieve also unfair. If the ladies had a choice to enter the bubble or not that is their own decision and responsibility

OMG, that post is absolutely pricless... 

A) Kelli, Judy, and/or Charlotte are so 'bothered' from comments on IG and/or this forum, that they have a response sent from THE choreographer daughter, who is ALSO a legacy cheerleader. (Notice I said 'sent' because I can see Kelli standing over Cassie's shoulder telling her what to type.  I had a manager like Kelli, lol, so I know how this kind of thing works.) Really???

B) So, Cassie, does 'regular DCC stuff" like NOT smiling & forgetting the combination @ semi-finals (during your first audition); and not smiling and getting lost in the combination AND falling out of turns (during your last audition) the kind of things that TCC get cut for? I guess Breelan, Ashley Pro, Kat R, and Hannah W, to name a few, can relate. But it didn't matter for you because you must have been a great leader.  Oh wait, does that leadership include completely embarrassing a TCC, until you bring her to tears like Taylor. Maybe tattling is an unwritten DCC trait or maybe you had just rewatched Mean Girls. 

Maybe this kind of stuff "just happens" to TCC unless your mom is the choreographer and there is nepotism that guarantees your position on the team. How convenient for you to try and set the record straight. Try again. Better yet, just keep your mouth shut unless you can 'walk the talk.' And YOU can't. You're making the whole situation look worse because DCC mgt is "trying' to defend/spin something that is not defensible.  

I can definitely see Kelli instructing Cassie on what to say as Judy is perched on her stool. 
 

This may be an unpopular opinion but Cassie seems to have struggled moving on from DCC. Her profile pic is still her in uniform. Didn’t she retire in 2012?

I am reading this to mean Kat isn't the only one fraternizing, so if she goes down she is taking others down with her.

So who are these golden children that she could take down with her?  Only “golden child” that comes to mind is VK and you know mama Kalina wouldn’t allow that.  Or could Kat play the race card?  Any WOC cut this year?  I have a feeling she’ll be outdanced this year.

Maybe by the time her daughter is old enough, someone with some integrity will be in charge of the DCC — someone who refuses to use the team as a platform for glorifying the untalented daughters of friends and family.

Alanna deserves a better photo. She's the only one looking over her shoulder to the point where you can't really see her face. 

I'm sorry, but I call BS on Brennan having COVID twice. I'm just guessing here, but my guess is that she came down with it one verified time and was sick another time and just guessed it was COVID again (or reflected back on a previous time she felt sick and determined it was COVID as well). 

I do love that Lily spoke up about her cut not being COVID related. 

There are cases popping up around the world were people have had it twice but different strains. So it is possible. As of yet it hasnt been report that anyone has had the same strain twice.

If I were Hannah and wanted to give TBTP a major headache, I would sue for reckless endangerment. I would allege, that TBTP were the only team that did tryouts this year, with inadequate safety protocols (that weren't even enforced), because they wanted to produce reality TV. According to one poster the TCC were supposed to quarantine in the two weeks prio to them entering the bubble, but many did not do it. Kelly and Co. can claim plausible deniability for those that did not post about them breaking the quarantine on the Instagram-accounts, however DCC-Lisa and her post about teaching a dance-camp in Arizona is a major liability for them. I read on this board, that all DCC and TCC have  to follow a certain account, that monitors their posts, so it should been known by TPTB, that Lisa was breaking quarantine. Honestly, I do not know, why they let her enter the bubble. Does she have so much influence as BFF of VK? If I were in Kelly's shoes I would have cut her for that stunt. (It would have even made good reality TV 🤣)

But they weren't the only team. Someone on here about 20+ pages back was saying the raiders did in person tryouts over 2 days while resulted in multiple girls then testing positive. The rumor was some went to try outs knowing they were infected.

100% agree. I don't particularly warm towards the typical Barbie blonde girls but always find the 'outside the box' women much more striking. Hannah fits that for me. She doesn't look like a traditional DCC, which is probably why I like her so much, Meredith too! Hannah doesn't have to try too hard to be sassy and sexy, she just is, yet she has a beautiful yet intense quality to her when she does more of a lyrical/contemporary style. 

Every woman is beautiful in their own way, that's why they have a bouquet of cheerleaders so there's something for everyone! That means more than hair colour, FYI Kelli.

I found Cassie's comments fair. The fact that the test was a false positive really does change everything for me.

The bubble clearly was secure because no one got Covid. I loved Hannah but I employ people who are constantly whining that things aren't Covid secure when they are just because they want to make a fuss and don't want to try and make things work. 

CMT/DCC went to extreme precautions to give the girls the opportunity to pursue their dreams - it sucks that Vets got cut right at the end but maybe those vets would have been cut at finals if they'd had the typical structure. I can't see Hannah getting cut at finals but maybe if she had a less than great attitude last season Kelli would have cut her like she cut Keyra for being late. 

I'm open minded about how this panned out and keen to see the CMT version so we can piece it together... 

I totally agree re comments on Tess and Maddie - I like them both so much but wish they'd retired so some of my favourites had the opportunity to shine as GL/triangle.

Thank you...I'm a nurse in a hospital with several covid cases, and yes...it is very possible to be infected twice.  We have a person who is on their second hospitalization in fact...first time in May and now.

They would be assured of a spot in TC, but no guarantee they would make the squad.  They could be cut out of revenge for deferring the year.

Yes, thank you. We all know Kelli is vindictive so why exactly do we assume she would be fine with people practically declining their position? Jaycie was a rookie hopeful so it wasn’t as bad as a vet deferring, but it also sounded like she was sick herself or wasn’t able to make the move, not that she declined because she was afraid.

12 hours ago, EricaShadows said:

Hmmmm. . . . that doesn't sound like what was said previously.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but the only veterans who weren't required to show up for the bubbles were those whose jobs absolutely couldn't be done from home or wouldn't give them the week off.  This would mean Taylor J. and one or two others.  Even if they weren't required to go into the bubble, Kelli seems like she would be vindictive enough to cut a girl for "not trying hard enough" or "not caring enough to show up".

Exactly... I think even Shelly confirmed the one day audition was offered to those who weren’t able to get different working arrangements. Which was practically just Taylor. Hannah is a student, she can’t justify not going. 

And I’m sorry but you can’t tell me they’ve offered the girls to just be done with one day of auditioning, without fear of repercussions or some kind of “strike against them” and yet they’ve all chosen to attend. It’s much easier to perform well on one specific day than being there for a full week if not more -same with tccs, how could they only do one day exactly?

And it wouldn’t be fair to the other girls anyway. Plus, while most of them don’t really work or have completely flexible jobs just because they’re dccs, I’m sure girls with professional jobs would rather not use up any goodwill they have within their workplace just to go into the bubble when there’s a better alternative.

Cassie, girl, shut up. I bet she will now make another post on her insta playing the victim and saying she doesn’t understand why mean people keep bullying her years after she retired. I don’t know, maybe because you can’t move on? Yes dcc is all you’ve accomplished, but considering most fans don’t even like you, you should stop getting in the middle of conversations that don’t include you in any way. You’re not management, dcc or dcc employee. You can’t possibly know why they were cut, unless your mama doesn’t know how to be a decent manager and keep these info within the actual team.

Aaand last thing, are we seriously claiming that all current dccs and recent retirees support these 2 girls even though they were lying and badmouthing dcc for getting cut? Really? I mean, Erica asked for her owed paychecks and she got the whole “we don’t do this for pay” speech, so it’s not like dcc are known to be supportive of their own no matter what.

So many thoughts on Cassie's comment she really thinks people would be like oh right, of course Cassie, you're right. I would say the organization started losing credibility when she made the team. As Kelli always says, she didn't have the DCC look, how did Cassie make it? She always had resting bitch face and she just wasn't DCC material. Isn't it convenient the only year they did the stunting at the halftime show was when Cassie was on the team. Were they trying to prove to people that she had talent? And as someone else posted, she has nothing going on besides DCC and probably never will... she's just not a nice person & probably never had to be...

Of course Cassie is going to defend this organization that has quickly turned into a joke and laughing stock in the NFL.

1.  They took her as a "legacy" when she was, IMO, the weakest dancer in her rookie class. (Fake Asthma.  I took that personally because I have asthma and what she had was no endurance.)

2. They put her on show group because the only contribution she could give was tumble.  But did we ever see her tumble outside of show group tryouts?  Nope.

3. They made a WHOLE DCC:MTT episode under the rouse of multiple "Brides" to show case her tacky wedding, which I am sure that CMT paid for.

4. They made her group leader and tried to show what a "sacrifice" she made when she stepped in for another DCC that was injured.

5. Now that she is supposedly retired, she still manages to show up on some of the episodes, and have her kids take photos with the team.

I wish she would just shut up.  Her voice is like fingernails on a chalkboard.

I wonder what it would take to have Cassie speak up about things that are not right at the DCC. I thought a long time about it and I cannot think of anything. Well, genocide perhaps.

That does follow typical human behaviour, no one would say anything that could hurt their parents.

And what are we talking about? Unfair, even cruel treatment of employees, not genocide.

Also, I think that Cassie looks a whole lot better than Amy L (=my low bar benchmark).
Cassie was a thankful recipient of nepotism at its purest form, that’s all.

(First time poster here, so forgive me if I'm not doing this quoting stuff right.) 

I'm confused as to why Maddie is getting comments over the uniform when it seems like practically everyone associated with the team spouts bible verses and references their religion in various ways.  Like...shouldn't they all basically be seen as hypocrites/in moral conflict, in that case?  I'm not sure what's special about her case, aside from the fact that people seem fascinated that she's a Mormon.  (I've had several Mormon friends, so I don't regard that as particularly interesting, but other people's experiences may be different.)

 

For me personally, I think it's because she looks like she's 12.  

 

The moral stuff came from a previous comment someone made about her saying she wears stuff with "grace" and that is something religious

Kelli-Sam/Judy-Cassie. Who is the smartest of them all? I vote for Sam. I know that she was an intern CMT/DCC show, but it is not uncommon for parents using their influence to get their child a job. She did not try out for DCC straight of high school, but went college instead. I do not recall any negative comments about Sam.

The fact that no one got covid (& the incubation period isn't over, so there could still be a case), does not in any way prove the bubble was secure. How many times have people been out and about and not gotten covid (grocery store, parties, etc.)? There was certainly no secure bubble in any of those situations.

No one testing positive (not false positive) & hopefully won't in the next couple of weeks, just means the DCC are extremely lucky -- not that the bubble was secure.

And that's not even taking into count false negatives if any of them do start to feel sick . . .

Training Camp Timeline

New TCCs check in at Gaylord Texan

First official day of Training Camp in bubble

Uniform Fittings

Guest Choreographer Evan Miller, Amelia cut

Guest Choreographer Charm La’Donna, Claire D cut

28 Veterans enter Gaylord Texan Bubble

Guest Choreographer Denise Dicharry, Shannan cut

Field rehearsal at AT&T Stadium, Annabelle Kelly and Sheridan cut

Guest Choreographer Travis Wall

Show Group Auditions

Show Group Announced, Show Group: Maddie, Tess, Gina, Rachel A, Lexie, Amber, Ashlee, Caroline, Daphne, Erin, Rachel W, Amanda, Chandi, Kelcey, Victoria, Claire W, Melissa. Meredith cut

Vet Day for Taylor J, Cassie cut

Media Day, Thunder Storm-TCCs leave bubble for storm shelter

Show and Sell, Dancers selected to dance again-Jessica, Alora Rose, Tori, Kristin, Briana, Lily, Hannah, and Brennan. Caroline included in this group to gauge other dancers. Positive test result later discovered. Production suspended

Canceled stadium rehearsal, isolation of group 1 and those in close contact with positive participant. Individual virtual meetings-Lily, Brennan, Hannah, Ashlinn, and Tori cut. Remaining women told they are not officially on the team but should consider relocating to Texas. First team rehearsal in September

Bubble concludes

-

Meredith and Lily were only told they were not top 36 dancers

Hannah was told she was not top 36 because of her pom technique

Brennan was told she looked winded and not ready game day ready

Filming  scheduled to resume at future stadium rehearsals

One Day Vet audition was intended for veterans who were unable to take 10 days off from work or who could not work remotely. Safety concerns alone did not qualify a veteran for the Vet Day option.

The unofficial leaders are Maddie and Tess. No groups

After going through all the trouble to make a bubble are they just going to turn around and have regular practices? How can that possibly make sense to anyone? And to not make the team official but to tell them to relocate is equally ridiculous.
