For example the first half of last season shooting stars looked pretty bad and wasn't hitting. People kept it really positive and stayed optimistic. Tsu looks really bad and I agree but people seem to be so much more harsh on Tsu. I would think it would be the other way around since Tsunami just got good and shooting stars has been good forever. Just something I have noticed. How do you pick who gets a pass on looking bad?
I think if they have a history of being amazing they will get a "pass" especially this early into the season!
When teams have rough weeks, you have your positive comments and your negative comments no matter who you are.
I think that some teams are given an advantage over other teams. Is this fair? no, but I believe that this does happen in the cheer world. A name is more than a name: it identifies who you are and what prestigious gym you are from and it can even remind them that this team and their gym have a history of doing well and scoring well in the past. The unknown teams must prove themselves because they are not a recognized team, but they can create a name for themselves by hitting a great routine. This doesn't happen all the time at all events, but I think some do favor the well known teams, and not neccasarily the teams from the smaller or newer or unknown teams.
