Can you imagine that level of toxicity coming out of the choir or drama club?
In our area, public high schools compete to lure football coaches from other schools.. There have been fights at area football and basketball games. The coaches' salaries compare with the highest other teachers receive - presumably the coaches teach PE classes. And the football budget surely outpaces the band/theater/art departments combined. Not to mention coverage of high school sports - compared to other HS activities - in the local papers and on TV.
I used to be disgusted.
Now I try to be amused.
