Change.org petition to air DCI World Finals on Network TV
In light of Jim Rome’s recent kerfuffel with band “dorks,” a Change.org petition has surfaced calling for the DCI Finals to be aired live on Network TV.
After recent twitter remark by Jim Rome, a CBS Sports employee, it threw the marching band and drum corps community into a riot. Calling band kids “dorks” and insulting them to over 1.3 million follwers is not how we would expect a grown man to act. In response, we would like a chance for Drum Corps International’s World Championship Finals to be aired on CBS this fall. We believe that helping promote the marching arts is a step forward in the right direction, with both sports and the arts being supported.
As of this article, the petition is still 5.7k short of the required 50k signatures, but it looks possible the petition may succeed!
