Yeah this seems very nasty! Just because fans asked for more footage? Ok!

I don't see where the fans asking for more footage is a problem.  But I guess Tiffany and staff got tired of the ongoing demands!

It's over the top. Well to be honest,  they had slacked up on the highlights videos anyway. So....

I could understand why the Staff would want to utilize the media team more. And if they feel that if they stop producing videos all together thats fine also... But talking down to people isn't cool... it take a lot less energy to just not respond. I think people that this response wasn't intended for (like myself) would be offended, simply because the over all tone was nasty and belittling... omg 

I wonder if this is miss Tiffany herself stating this?  Because if so, that is very unprofessional and nasty of her! I'm very shocked that they would literally act this way over something so little!

Ok I was thinking.  It can't be miss Tiffany. She has more professionalism than that

 Dr Lawhorn Instagram story stated  pay for a ticket if you want to see lol. Whether she wrote it or not, I am sure she is aware of the statement and stands behind it. Folks have chimed in about it on the NCAT golden delight Instagram before it was taken down. I would be frustrated too after Homecoming. 
As many shows as they do and all the planning and preparation she may not have the time as stated.  When reading the comments, the fans referenced the SWAC teams are doing it. I have an issue with those comments.  The SWAC always have independent popular videographers following them as well as the teams such as Showtime Web, Trin T, SmashTime, Killa Kev, Marvin Price, McCool-the list goes on as well as their own teams. Folks should take that into consideration before making demands. I just hate that they mentioned cutting the highlights out all together. Maybe they aren’t and that’s why they took it down

So here's the thing... the "fans" aren't asking for anything, that they aren't used to. For years the Golden Delight staff (Mrs Tiffany) have provided highlights, photoshoots and stands clips, it was something that most people came to expect for the Golden Delight Staff ask Mrs. Tiffany.  Tiffany also has a great rapport with the "fans"/ supports, and even when she had to let loose on a hoe, she was always professional. The tone used in this post use completely out of character, nasty and unnecessary. Mind you these are fans of Delight just asking to see more of the "hard work the squad puts in."  Tiffany has cultivated a relationship with GD fan that not only allowed fans to fall in love with the sqaud it has also brought respect for Tiffany, her staffs work, and GD captains in and outside of the MEAC. So with that said, its a shame that all the years that Tiffany put in to shaping Delight's reputation ,fans read "if you want to see the squad buy a ticket". (Da Ell)

Dont get me wrong if the Staff needs to focus more on the squad we can understand that, if the BGMM media staff is going to share most of the GD highlights fine we can deal with that too. Its not the message, it the tone.

It's not that "folks" is not taking anything into consideration,  concerning the staff. But they literally got their butts on their shoulders. Because fans wanted to see more footage!  Really though?  When I  could vividly remembering the staff posting highlights after highlights,  photo shoots, try out vids, etc etc. Now they seem to not have time or make smart, undertoned comments! Whatever the SWAC teams is doing is great. And I'm sure the fans was just merely stating  that because of the footage that is posted regularly.  GD is the only MEAC squad that has more followers/fans than the other MEAC squad.  And some cannot get to the games for geographical reasons etc. So if the fans is asking for more footage.  Then just provide it. Or go about it a different approach. It's not like there is going to be other media teams there recording them. That's why there is a GD platform and BGMM platform,  specifically for those things.  It's just distasteful imo to come off on fans like this!

Well they said they aren’t and considering not doing it at all so....And since it is at their discretion what they do with their time what are we really talking about then? I guess we will have to return to being the fans we were before social media. 
Also, nothing stops anyone from being independent ex. Killa Kev etc if they wanted too. Invest in cameras, tickets, flights whatever.  I am sure the staff will not mind if you communicate with them.

I'm simply talking about the tone of the message. Nor the message itself. It simply could have be worded a lot differently. And Going back to the age before social media really isn't an opinion because as so you know if you dont post you don't exist. If people can't search Golden Delight and find content easily people lose interest. I dont care how good you are. The BGMM media team does a great job producing content for the band. However, Golden Delight has their own fan base and the consume media differently. The BGMM media team doesn't do a good job providing media for that fan that are only into danceline because thats not their focus. But if thats the route A&T's band wants to go, Thats Fine and Dandy too. But there is a better why to say it, or simply make the transition and dont say anything at all. Sometimes silence is Golden.
