    I completely agree. I think people forget to take into consideration that there's a lot we don't see and there's a lot more to a situation than what is being shown to us.

    You are probably right, te show is definitely editing a lot, but some things cannot just be created by the magic of video editing. I have a problem with the fact that either Cassidy openly lied when she said she was getting someone's spot or Cali is trying to do damage control now by saying it didn't happen that way. Both cannot be true. Either she lied on camera or someone is lying now. You cannot "edit" or "not show" enough to make "someone is going to have to be moved down, and I feel sorry for them" sound like she was an alternate and never intended to take anyone's spot. It is clear that she is saying someone will be moved down to make room for her. i dont see how that can be interpreted any other way? She said it so either it was a lie or she was told she would be back on the team and knocking someone off. It is one or the other. Someone is being less than truthful and that bothers me.

    i cant see them telling her before hand, before the injury that she was going to be back on the team, considering she came back so suddenly. she probably was just very cocky and made an unfortunate statement, and then the injury occured. idk

    I don't like the sound of this part: "If Kassidy was in a bad mood, the team was in a bad mood. If Kassidy was in a great mood, the team did well." I have both coached and cheered on teams where there may be one person who dictates the mood/tone of the team each practice and let me tell you, it's not easy to be the coach or the other athletes in that situation. I have also been on and coached teams where that kind of personality was not on the team for that season. I am not talking bad and it is fine to have a "strong personality", but I hope this does not end up bringing drama in coming episodes.

    I did wonder if Kassidy said 'someone will be moved down' because SHE knew, after discussion with coaches and possibly Tylen that she would take Ty's spot as she was injured, but it hadn't be announced publically.

    Like, here's the scenario.
    1. Ty gets hurt.
    2. Eddie asks Kassidy back/tells her she won't be an alternate, but competing.
    3. Eddie tells Ty that as she's hurt, Kassidy will step in.

    *At this point they have not made a 'formal' announcement to the rest of Smoed or the wider world.

    4. The camera crew ask Kassidy why she's back. She says she's on the team (because it has been decided that she will take Ty's spot whilst she's injured) but because it's not public knowledge, she fudges it a bit and says 'someone will move off', because it's not her place to tell.

    I know that on occassion when changes have been made at MY practices, the coaches discuss the change with the relevant athletes BEFORE the full team announcement, out of courtesy. That way, too, the athlete that is being 'moved down' or changed can take time to get their thoughts together and get their 'game face' on before it's announced in front of the team.

    I really hope Tylen gets better so she can compete at worlds:( (not to kick Kassidy off just because that's a sad situation.) To be honest I'm indifferent about the whole Kassidy situation that really wasn't a situation in the beginning as we're finding out.

    The whole situation was very crazy. I'm Kassidy and I quit in September before the season had even begun because of PERSONAL reasons, school as well but there is alot more to it. On October I realized how much of a mistake I had made and begged my parents to let me come back after about 2 months of that they finally agreed. I didn't come back to take anyone's spot I came back to either be an alternate or be in a spot of they truly needed me to. That interview was my first day back which was 2 weeks before spirit sports so I came back about a month and a half after the bid was given. It ended up being that Tylen got Hurt unfortunately that was made me get put back on the team. I would've rather been an alternate and had Tylen stay but that wasn't the case. They would've had no one if I hadn't decided to come back so luckily it was an easy fix. I just want to thank everyone that has seen me out and given me a chance I have been with this team for 3 years and I love them all more then anything in the world. All I want is to compete my best with them and make them proud! Keep watching cheerleaders and enjoy more Smoed!! :) thank you!

    So did you know when you gave the interview you were replacing Tylen who was injured? Because what you said plays a lot differently. It sound like you were already back on the team, but didnt know who you were replacing, and Eddie apparently said here that at one time you were an alternate, but that wouldn't make sense if you knew the first day back you were back on the team. Did they edit what you said? Because I am really confused now that there are 3 different versions.

    Aren't you the person who has been calling her a liar? Not sure why you are being so aggressive about it. I certainly wouldn't want to respond to you if I were Kassidy. You being an adult (at least a mother) and her being a kid. You seem to have a pretty serious bee in your bonnet and I have all confidence Eddie knows what he is doing in his gym.

    No I ave not called her a liar. I have said that there is no way 2 opposite versions of events can both be truthful, and I would love to know WHO is lying.

    True. You did not use the term "liar", but you tossed out lied, lying and lie. Oh and less than truthful.

    Yes, I said EITHER she was lying OR someone else was. That both could not be the truth. I don't see the problem with stating that fact?

    Ackward. I would imagine the people who are actually involved in the situation can question things. Random mom, not so much.
