wow...that was the worst half-time show ever!!!
good job whoever makes these decisions...
theory of a dead man...who cares?
it's in Montreal, the Grey cup this year, so you'd think they would get one of the hundred or two successful Canadian artist or musicians that are good and two would come from Montreal, at least.
honestly, i don't say this often , but last nights Grey Cup was a serious inferior product.
i think i cracked when i saw those trapeze children make the Pepsi logo, i shed a tear.
I knew it, people are complaining about the halftime show... :roll: :roll: I usually do not watch the shows as I know it will be a disappointment. They need to come up with something different that people will want to watch. Instead of a live act, why not have a half-time contest of some sort-- maybe select 2 people for a QB challenge of sorts.. winner gets season tickets to the team of their choice.. it will be far more entertaining than watching a band that few have heard of, or don't like.
Yeah, definite shades of "Hooray for Everything"....I also found the idea of having the cheerleaders (none of whom seemed overly cheery) in the front row and then to have a bunch of fans who weren't in teh "Theory of a Deadman" dempgraphic looked really stage and awkward, no one in the that crowd seemed into ToaDM
I wouldn't say it was bad, besides those two things i mentioned it seemed alright. It was no Lenny Kravitz though, but hey, some years are diamonds some are stones I guess.
Why does the CFL insist on bringing in acts outside of the demographic of the vast majority of fans watching. I am willing to bet that until they announced the show, most of the people who attended the game had never even heard of Theory of a Dead Man and than 99% of them as well as the TV audience couldn't name a song of theirs today even if they watched the show.
This has been shown here before but it is worth seeing again, hands down the greatest Grey Cup half time show ever! This is where the bar should be set. And you didn't even have to be a Trooper fan, I was there and there were grannies and little kids screaming "Raise a little Hell" throughout the show.
Why can't the CFL seem to understand it is not bad for the crowd to enjoy the show! Stop trying to feed us crap and bring in an act the fans paying the freight can enjoy.
It's not too early to talk about next year. The best act by far to bring in for next years Grey Cup would be ,The Stampeders, (the band) although I wouldn't mind seeing the team as well. It's a natural and trust me, the place would be rocking!
I was at the Grey Cup and thought Theroy of a Deadman was ok, but their sound system was poor. Last year in Toronto with Lenny Kravitz for the half time show, he was great and so was the sound system he had.
And in regards to the sound system at this years Grey Cup. I thought almost eveything on the P.A. was too loud. I could not even here the person sitting next to me speak sometimes.
I would have thought with the Grey Cup being in Montreal they would have done something with a Montreal flaovour, such as Circus du Soleil. That would have been great.
I have only been to 5 Grey Cups and for the most part I think most fans do not really recall most of the half time shows unless it is really good or really poor. SO I will always remember watching Lenny Kravitz last year and this years Grey Cup as well as being very poor.
2002 Grey Cup in Edmonton; the same year Shania did halftime. It was a promotion they did to commemorate the lottery's 20th anniversary. Qualifiers from across the country won a trip to the GC that year with one person amongst the qualifiers walking off with $6.49 Million. Around the time of that promotion, if not soon after, they doubled the price of the lotto tickets. :roll:
Obviously you know absolutely nothing about music. Motley Crue is the biggest band in the land right now if you didn't know that. TOAD is way better than Nickelback.
Your problem is that you are unwilling to try anything. TOAD was good but you classify them without ever knowing anything about them.
I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR WHAT KIND OF MUSIC YOU LIKE?
This is why people don't come on here anymore. You have an opinion and it gets shot down in 2 seconds when jerks like this don't agree with it.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinions but get your facts straight please. BTW, TOAD is a very popular band among the youths of today. Once they go out from behind NB, they have proven that they are a worthwhile band.
