If you say the size of some of the marching bands and the fact that they travel well and do perform at halftime at all games, even road trips, you would have the answer to that. The band facilities for most of these schools are top notch. Halftime takes forever here as you have to watch a show. They get their time as well.From one perspective this sounds brilliant. But for kids without...athletic dispositions, let's say...this sounds like hell on earth. Can those kids seek their opportunities equally in music or arts programs? Because the right-brain people might actually provide more entertainment than sports do, (i.e. think of how many hours of music that young people listen to everyday vs. time watching ADS and a game), and helping them develop those skills can reap tremendous rewards for communities.
