    Well if you take out all of the time the football is NOT in motion, there is really only something like 12 minutes of football anyway.

    In HS (in No. Virginia) We NEVER played when on offense except in timeouts and MAYBE a tag between plays.

    My older kids were in the band in North Carolina. Same deal. The Coaches would raise hell if the band played while they were on offense.


    I come to Texas, the Football Capitol of the Country, so some will say, and I see our band, and others, constantly playing through snaps. The directors/drum majors seem to have total disregard to what is going on out on the field, with exception to playing the fight song after a score. And even then they play through the extra point attempt.

    If a coach from Wylie HS is reading this thread, will ya talk to the band director?

    (my comments are my own and should reflect negatively on my daughter, a member of TWB).

    the really good band directors will play loudly when the other team has the ball and not at all when their team does. Some call it unsportsmanlike, I like to call it total team effort.

    We have tried and tried to explain this to our band director. He does not listen most of the time.

    Personally I think the band is an extension of the crowd so it should not be a big issue. However I can understand the view of being unsportsmanlike on some levels, specially when playing At Allen. But that is a different beast all together.
