What is it with the bands?

This is the forum for those who don't want to talk trash, don't want to bash teams, etc. Just for people who want to have serious conversations about high school football.

I heard a coach one day say this:
He finally agreed to go to a band competition because all of the band members asked him to go, since they DID play music for his games.
He went to it, giving up a Saturday and showed his coaching pass to get in.
They said they didn't honor it and he would have to pay to go in.
His argument was, bands get into free for every single game they attend, yet, coaches, players and other game personnel have to pay.
It might be more football personnel going to the competitions if all of them allowed their own teams to get in free.

I jumped over here from the 4a board....interesting topics.

Personally, i see the bands running amuck. In my hayday...bands supported the sport teams...in today's climate it seems the bands are there for its own benefit.

The band plays a piece to get ready for its "war of the bands". After half time they are gone.

During football game "rarely" does the band "fire up" the crowd...more focus on their own "pitch".

I here in some schools like Wando the band controls the posting of signs at the stadium...and the football team gets no $$$. And I am not whistling like a pig!

I personally enjoy the band's performance and appreciate all the hard work that goes into it. Having had kids in the band. I know it is almost impossible for any band member to have a part time job or accept weekend invitations from friends because of their schedule. I absolutely think that the band adds to the excitement of the team coming onto the field and the other pre-game rituals.
As for the half time show, the people who are not interested usually go to the concession area, etc. anyway.
For those of you who miss the variety of fight songs and involvement of the band to get the fans fired up, etc., I can see your point. Perhaps a good solution would be to have a pep band in addition to the marching band and that way only the students who are interested in the football tradition would be involved. Frankly I would like to see a similar group of pep band students at basketball games as well. It seems to me that anything to get more student and fan involvement would be a win, win situation.
Actually I have heard the same type of comments made regarding the cheerleaders and I have to admit that I love it when you see the cheerleaders following the team up and down the field and having the actual cheer relate to what is happening on the field---hold that line, block that punt, whatever. I noticed that Sumpter did that a few years back at a playoff game and I was a little jealous.
Just my two cents on the subject......

Please note that I said a pep band IN ADDITION TO the marching band, not in place of it.
