Post-game conduct no big deal

Letter to the Editor | Monday, September 14, 2009

Dear Kale Frank,

You are a member of the band and a supporter of the football team. How this leads you to believe that you “win and lose, live and die” with the team every Saturday is beyond me. You dress up in a funny costume and play an instrument. Nothing more, nothing less. Please do not feel like you have the authority to berate the football team because they decided to leave the game early. They, not you, suffered a crushing defeat. Quite understandably, they were not in the mood to stand on the field and sing a song. Big deal. They already devote more than enough time to representing this school, so please refrain from your trivial demands on their time.

Very Respectfully,


Corey McNeilly
