The judge should be censured by the association for that comment, regardless of intent. There should be no room for that nonsense.

Besides that, I'm not partial to the whacking style that has become so common. Prior to Kevlar heads, finesse produced volume dynamics that are rarely heard by lower grade players anymore. Exaggerated arm movements and consistently loud playing produce a rather boring rattle. If playing like a girl means having some musical taste, discretion, and variation...play on.

How do you stop an army on horseback charging at you at full pelt? With the Pipes and Drums, of course! I have told youngsters in my care to play with more aggression.
The battle is now o'er but we still want to make the audience jump out of their seats when the drum corps comes on.
