The Football Team Shouldn’t Win All Those Games. WTF?

September 22, 2016

Today CC comes home and informs me that a band parent came to him and complained about the lack of seating available in the stands. Her issue was that the football team wins too much which leads to a lack of seating available to band parents/families because people are crowded into the stands to watch the game. Her argument was then that people don’t come to the games to watch football, they come to hear the band.

Um, no.

I was a choir nerd in high school, one of our coaches was a band geek, and even he called bullshit. I love the musical entertainment at games, it helps to liven the atmosphere. But people don’t come to high school games just for the band, regardless of how many awards they won. People come to football games to watch football. 

Even our cheer coach needed a mind reset on this popular topic a few years ago too. She tried to argue that people come to see the cheerleaders. Again, integral part of the experience, not the whole reason. 

When your team on average puts up 31 points in the first half, that’s why people are coming to games. People are coming to see you win games and put on a good show. When your defense is running over people and holding teams back, that’s what puts butts in the seats. A great band is awesome, but that’s not why I am there, and I’ll bet that isn’t why any football parents come either. 

Don’t get me wrong, I love our band, I love the support, but this parent has got to be kidding me. If there wasn’t a football game, your kid wouldn’t be out on a Friday night parading around with their trumpet in front of 3,000 people. I’m just saying.
