Yeah that is a very good point.  It comes down to the AD's and the Band Directors's working TOGETHER to ensure that doesn't happen.   :tiptoe:

SOLUTION: Have the visiting band perform either just before the game or immediately after the game.

Seeing this for the first time yesterday. .  this rule can be problematic.  Both Shaw's band and NCCU's band played very well; but both shows seemed rushed.  NCCU left the field with 2+ minutes left and without performing a 'breakdown' segment.

I truly wonder if HBCUs had any representation on the rules committee to argue on our behalf?  Like KHawk said, I think this was about the big boys on TV; so why impose this rule on the lower divisions?

Also, would visiting bands purposely try to lengthen their shows to help out their football team?

It worked well at Duke.  NCCU must be intentional not to schedule commercials during halftime.  Shaw band didn't get on the field until around the 16 minute mark.  Central could have done more but they decided to end close to 2 min. early.  Still, I don't like this rule.

Sponsors are going to win the battle between commercials and the bands every time.    They're investing in the program, while visiting bands aren't.  The visiting band performing at halftime is mainly an HBCU thing; so I doubt we were  considered in the rule making.

I wonder how much Durham County Health Department contributed?  Those that contributed still don't need that much time during halftime.  That video from the Health Department really didn't get its message across because the fans that paid, wanted to see the bands.  I am included.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
