The Damn band got to the game late in Laredo because they took them shopping at the mall! If your not going to contribute during the Rams Playoffs just stay home! This is aimed at the directors of the band!

We were leaving the mall at 3:30 and saw band kids & parents still walking around shopping. That band should have been there way ahead of time. Like at least an hour so the excuse about Lubys doesn't fly. Then to top it off they weren't paying atention to what song to play during game. The started to play touchdown song when it wasn't even a touchdown. All during the game you would see band kids passing back n forth in front off the stands not even playing. To top it off after the game whoever was in charge of the band was on loud speaker getting after the band telling them everything they did wrong. I think the directors comments to the band should have waited until the bus ride back or in the classroom. After the GRAND entrance you made. At least the Del Rio Boys shined & the fans were there!!!

Shut the f*ck up! If you're going to complain you should go and say it to the directors not here on topix.
The only one who should shut the Fu ck up is you! Your either a parent or one of those kids who wouldn't sit and contribute to the Rams Victory! The Parents,Directors, and any other adults that traveled with the band to laredo failed the team! Plain and simple! If your not there to contribute we don't need you in san Antonio next week.

Donnas band was ready and in the stands and played the entire game. They were in the stands for the national anthem and when the announcer asked them to play their school song they were on point. Then the announcer asked the del rio band to play our school song and our band was getting off the bus. It was embarrassing for our team who was standing at attention. It was our cheerleaders and drill team and all the fans from del rio who made it to the game on time who sang the song for them. I'm tired of hearing all this talk about award winning triple star rated non sense. Your job at that point is not to be shopping for a new feather in your hat at the mall. You get your act together and be there on time!

By no means is it the band kids faults its whoever is in charge of them that didnt have their act together. A major game like this one you would have thought they would have had their act more together than they did. This playoff game is NOT about a shopping spree!! I can guarantee you Coach Hoffman didnt let his boys go to the mall before the game. Get the priorities straight!! Whats the purpose of your trip to shop or support your team!! Again its not the bands fault. Its who's in charge.

I would like to take a minute an give a big Thanks to the student council students,who last night, at the game when the time came for Del Rio to play its school song,they all stood up an started singing the song without music because our band had a previous an more important pressing issue to handle at the mall,{shopping},if not for this group of students we would of been totally humilated,but once they took control all the fans then joined in, I was very proud of these students, Thank You so very much an for being loyal to your school, town, an most of all our Ram team

Typical ignorant response. The budget to get the band to Laredo for the sole purpose of going to the game was probably $10,000. If they are having their way payed to be there and expected to be there at the game in a professional capacity then they need to be there on time. No excuses!

Listen! If. Your not out there in the practice field under the hot sun practicing! Then stfu, those kids have don't a lot! &&to drresident you probably can't last in 5 mins of what they do, those band kids&directors deserve to have a. Little fun, they start practicing even before school starts and continue practing through out the whole year, they have gone through a lot! Especially in this past year! Your son or daughter wasn't the one on that bus that crashed&&still had to come home and start practing once again, so keep your mouth shut!

Stupid! In that case have the boosters schedule a trip to Laredo n the bands own time! They went to support the football team not to go shopping!!!! And what the he'll does the accident earlier in the ear have to do with Saturday's trip!!??????? No one questioned the efforts the band members put into practice idiot! As far as the band directors being out in sun practicing, that's what they pay that(those) idiot(s) for!

GOOD save the money and give more to the teachers! In the sun practicing. Please. The football players practice in the heat with pads. Get rid of the band if they can't show up " in a professional capacity". But who cares. If they show up or don't. What do you expect. It's Del Rio. You all suck

Dont tell anyone to shut there mouth, it was there responsibility to be there they went so they should of been there on time,working hard in the heat, an the wreck had nothing to do with there going to the mall an not being relieable. They had a responibility to be somewhere an they werent there simply as that so stop making excuses for them, thats a great thing to teach your kids dont worry about it kiddies its ok to leave your team hanging an the fans because you worked hard in the heat an we had a bus wreck thats a crock Stop making excuses for what happened, you were wrong an you know it if shopping is more important then stay home, an as for working in the heat dont even go there the players were out for 2 a days since the begining of Aug also

It's not the "touchdown song" you idiot it's the school's fight song. There's a short version which is the one "they started to play when it wasn't even a touchdown". It's played when the football team makes a good play. So shut your mouth and know your shit before you start talking!!!!!

Oh and one more thing.. The "band kids passing back n forth in front of the stands not even playing" were going to the restroom, you stupid idiot!! Unless you'd rather have them playing in there too, haha. So again get your shit straight before you open up your mouth and make YOURSELF look like the biggest dumbass. If you don't have the facts, dont talk. Plain and simple.:)

OH! and learn how to spell, you grammar-lacking dumbass!!!

All of you are acting like fools to post comments likes these here....Maybe boom is right, Del Rio sucks because sometimes sh*t happens but it is how people react that counts....Making fun of our children and showing disrespect is not the way to to do it. Dear parents, act like parents and not like fools...
