Four years ago, the Assistant Commissioner in charge of football officiating sent out an e-mail to all the officials in the state. He advised that teams are not to be penalized for bands playing during a live ball or when the ball is about to be live.

The officials were instructed, when the opportunity arises, to seek help from the game administrators with regards to bands playing. Games were not to be stopped or delayed for this.

If the problem was not corrected, then the Referee or crew chief was instructed to contact Columbus by a game report or e-mail to advise on the situation.

Columbus would take the matter up from there.
