Wah Wah Wah! I felt bad for the soccer team at P H , but you know I see you are a bunch of jelly spreaders just like Dulaney ! Face the players on the field win games not bands! let the kids play enough of the politically correct bull! Next you will ban Santa from Baltimore County! The City may have to much crime,but Baltimore County has to many stuffy parents who can't loose fair and square!!! Go Poly Go! Class Of 1975!

Yes it was inappropriate for Poly to have the band sit in the visitors section and play everytime Perry Hall had the ball. But anyone who knows anything about football will tell you when you have home field advantage you take any advantage you can. It may not be right but that is not the reason Perry Hall's football team lost the game. They came out flat and once they fell behind to a good Poly team it was going to be difficult to catch up. ALL Perry Hall football parents, family and fans should be proud of the team and what they accomplished this year. That is the real story! It's about the efforts of the young men and what they accomplished this year. Stop the crying about another teams band and be proud of YOUR TEAM and thank every young man on the team for a great year. I for one and thankful for there efforts and all the enjoyment thet gave me this year. THANKS GATOR FOOTBALL TEAM! You are still NO. #1 with me. Jack

I was in attendance at the game and feel that it is necessary to address these inaccuracies. If ever in attendance at any Poly football contest, the band sat where the band always sits. Is it a challenge to have one sided seating for both the home team and visitors perhaps but this is nothing new. It is open seating people and the fans had a choice of where they sat. Are there cultural or generational differences in regards to the bands music selections or routine choices? Perhaps but to attack them and call them "lewd" is a bit much. It was also reported that several Perry Hall fans used profanity in addressing the students and the band staff, if that is the County class you are referring to....spare us! The main event was the football game and although lopsided, the players were not disadvantaged due to the band. Fans could have contacted one of the many police officers if they had a problem they could not handle. Continue to take the elitist perch and attack City students because you don't approve of the manner in which they show spirit and support for their team.
