Re: Dum Major Audition Judges
I agree with you 100%!!! But its been my experience that football coaches and band directors are held to completely different standards in the community. I've seen a coach completely cuss out a kid in practice and the parent say nothing, while I get called on the carpet for accidentally saying "Damn" in rehearsal (same kid as football, same parents). I think everyone knows the mentality that football can do anything they want and band is a little less-than. I also think that administrators will back you up if you appear that you're being impartial by bringing in judges. Do I agree with it? No! Is it a big pain in the butt? Yes! After all, public school is just a football factory with a little bit of academics thrown in, right???
