Why band parents????

I have a question for a lot of the C Falls band parents. Why do you leave after halftime on Friday night? I can understand you being proud of your kids that are in the band, they are very good, but don't you think it's kind of an insult to the kids on the football team to see a third of the stands empting out after halftime? How would you like it if at halftime every person at the game, that weren't a band parent, stood up and turned their backs to the band until they were done? That would be pretty disrespectful, wouldn't it? That is basicly what you are doing when you leave at halftime.

Also, if I see one more person with a t-shirt that says "It's all about halftime" I won't be responsible for my actions. Think about the stupidity of that saying. Would there even be a halftime if it wasn't for the football team? No!!!! The band is an important part of the Friday night FOOTBALL GAME, but let's get the pecking order right. Can there be a football game without a band? Of course. Can the band play without the football team? Sure, but who besides the parents of the kids in the band are going to pay a dollar to park and six dollars to get in to see them? And, if it is just a band show, is there a "HALFTIME"? I don't think so. It's not really all about halftime is it?

I know all the band parents don't leave at halftime and don't wear those disrespectful shirts, and to those band parents I say thank you for supporting ALL the kids, not just the band kids.

Maybe the team would play a little harder in the second half if when they came out of the locker room they didn't have to see so many people leaving, so if you can't help your self and you just can't stand to support the team as well as the band try to be completly out of the stadium before the boys come back out so they don't have to see the mad rush for the doors. Thank you!

Band Supporters

This has been going on for years and it is a disgrace. Imagine what would happen if some of us started wearing shirts with anti-band slogans on them to the games. How fast do you think you would get tossed out of the stadium ? Do you realize that they sell those shirts next to the home concession stand ? This is just another example of what a soft and sissified school system we have. Face it, sports are just not that important in the grand scheme of things in the CF schools.

I wouldn't blame the poor play of the football team on the band people bolting at halftime though. This current team has some serious toughness and aggression issues of their own. Maybe we need to get some of rough characters from the M&Ms and Goldtones to slap our football players around a little and let them know who really dominates things at Falls High.

Buckeye29, Let's face the facts. 90% of band members are nerds. Therefore probably 90% of band parents are nerds. Nerds do not relate to football. Therefore by halftime without even knowing the score they are ready to go home and have some hot cocoa and read a book before retiring. You are correct. This is very disrespectful.

Time out.
I understand your frustration. But I played football all thru high school and have kids in the band too. So I love both.
Please don't classify "me" as a nerd because of the combined loyalties (I must be part of the 10% you're talking about).
Also I don't leave at haftime either but I know many communities, Stow and Hudson in particular, experience the same phenomenon.

I feel your pain. But to pigeonhole people as "nerds" because they're in the band, what does that solve and what stigma are you perpetuating? It's just not true anymore.

I guess I think in general it would be cool if the band actually supported and cared about the football team and the game, and vice versa. But that's shangri-la.

Would this even be a topic if Falls was 2-0????? Everyone knows the goofy things that the band people and parents do, but there are some goofy things that football players and teams do too. Look at Tallmadge last year?

They've won just as many at NF as they did together at CF.

I am not talking about overall idiot. I am talking about this year. I was just saying that Newton Falls being 2-0 was no big deal and not to get your hopes up for a great year. I bet if C. Falls played in the league Newton Falls is in, they would probably do pretty good. I am shocked NF won even 2 games but then again not. They didn't play anyone good the first two games

I think it is the most discouraging thing, i play for C-falls and it sucks to see that half of our "fans" have left after half time. I hate it and there iss no excuse for it. If u only come to watch the band play just wait until their concerts and go to them!!!!!!!!!!

simple start playing together and the football fans will come out in groves to all of your games... we can see a change in some of your teammates out there... but until all of you buy into a team concept the same result will follow

Are you saying it's okay to totally "Dis" the football team because they aren't winning? Anyone with that attitude is not a fan!!! A TRUE fan sticks with their team though good times and bad.

you can find me at the twenty yard line at section F every home game and have only missed two away games the past five years... don't tell me about being a faithful fan please... We stay through the entire games no matter what.... until the entire community pulls for the program in the same direction then the same result will follow

I never meant to say that you weren't a fan, but your attitude that seems to be, that it's okay for the band parents to leave after half time because the team isn't winning I totally disagree with. I do agree with you that the entire community needs to show support though, even the band people, because after all, if there's no football team there is no need for a band. It's that simple.

They've been leaving the games at half for a long time. Its to cold to stay didnt u know. We dont win anyway so why stay right. Thats the attitude of all the band parents leave. But all i have to say is THANK YOU to all of the people who stay anyway....bigticket.....we need more people like u in the stands.
