Go to Post For We Will Rock You, we quit counting Saturday morning when it got to 12 times. Gary Dillard Billfred

Go to Post In my book the team building experience of the kids training the engineers in the operations on the field would be invaluable. It might not get a trophy but you win far more in the long run. Wayne C. Bharat Nain
Go to Post The highest seeded alliance is always placed in the red zone by the computer. In fact, its a great communist conspiracy to mold the mind of teenagers into equating Reds with winners. Btower Daniel Brim
Go to Post If an alternate is used, all four teams are equal members of the alliance. (Trophies, trips, bling, book tours, custody of the children etc.) Btower Billfred
Go to Post I suppose you need to let the kiddies (including Copioli) win a few now and then. Andy Baker Jay Trzaskos

Go to Post They truncated our conference title. We are not showing the movie "Finding NEMO" RoboMom Billfred
Go to Post People aren't getting angry at teams who play defense. They are getting angry at the teams who play BattleBots in the middle of a FIRST match. dlavery Billfred

Go to Post I love how these contests always seem to find their way to go back to Dave Lavery and (pick one) Krispy Kreme/Heidi/Photoshop DCA Fan Billfred
Go to Post I'm still trying to find a way to get FIRST to dump the Chicken Dance song. :p Koko Ed Daniel Brim
Go to Post I was watching the webcast when that score was posted and thought to myself, "What did they do, steal a donut from Dave?" MissInformation Koko Ed
Go to Post "Defense wins qualifying rounds, offense wins championships." Paul Copioli Koko Ed
Go to Post FIRST is again mirroring real life. And in real life, when we build and design robotic and automated systems, it's safety first. Hitting a human in real life loses a lot more than 30 points. Fred Agnir Kyle
Go to Post I'm not worried about the amount of Segways at a regoinal, I'd rather see them out in the real world than at a robotics competition. Joe Matt Billfred
Go to Post If something on your robot isn't working, then why don't you take the responsibility to fix it? Isn't that what being a TEAM is all about? dlavery Billfred
Go to Post Successful teams - in almost any aspect of life (i.e. not just robotics) - don't make excuses and assign blame when something goes wrong. They improvise. They adapt. They overcome. They correct the problem and move on. dlavery Billfred
Go to Post They really should put warning signs at all entrances: "WARNING! FIRST IS CONTAGIOUS!" KenWittlief Alex Pelan
Go to Post There's no feeling quite like that one you get when you're behind the diamond plate controlling a metal beast that you've put your blood (literally), sweat (more literally), and tears (probably literally) into, and it working. Undescribable. scali Bharat Nain
Go to Post What has happened has happened. Humans were involved, mistakes made. Clarification will come... Wetzel Billfred
Go to Post What's the reason for having a rule if it's not enforced? jpsaul7usa Billfred
Go to Post Temp wiring is always bad but it is made worse when dealing with a $1000+ part. You wouldn't try to lash a makeshift power source to your PC. Al Skierkiewicz Billfred
Go to Post I love it when there is someone that obviously "gets it". dlavery Billfred
Go to Post I also hate it when I keep seeing this message: "You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Andy Baker again." dlavery Billfred

Go to Post People... chill. It is week 1. Recall week 1 last year when many teams said "no one is capping with the 2x ball"... "only a few teams are hanging". Andy Baker Billfred

Go to Post That's some sexy use of aluminium Bharat Nain Billfred
