Should Annandale Coach Scott Apologize?

Refer to the online edition of the Annandale HS newspaper:
Coach Scott tried to force the Band off the field.
From A-Blast: "Coach Mike Scott and a few other coaches as well as some players began yelling at the band and Band Director Adam Hilkert to “get the band off the field.” According to the game clock, we had about 4:30 left and halftime wasn’t over. The screams from the fans and coaches became more intense, and Coach Scott resorted to his own measures by shaking the podium of junior Assistant Drum Major Douglas Nguyen, and then yelling at the other Assistant Drum Major, senior Noah Wolfenstein, to stop conducting and get off the field. Yells came from the stands and the coaches to the press box and the field.- See more at: http://www.thea-blast.org/editorials/2013/11/... ;

Not only should the coach apologize, the administration should also apologize for allowing the horrible comments and attitude to even occur! Any of the spectators who were yelling should have been kicked out of the stadium and the team should have received a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct! The coach should also be formally reprimanded for physically endangering the Assistant Drum Major (Douglas Nguyen) when he shook the podium. It sounds like a good housecleaning in the administration and coaching staff needs to happen. This coach and the administration are setting a terrible example of respect for others and they should be sent packing!
And congrats to the band for their accomplishments!

I am a band parent for over 10 years, and our son and daughter are both now band directors. I was outraged that this coach felt the football team deserved the field above the senior band members as
well as the Director,Mr. Hilker, and the band. To shake the podium was dangerous and out of control.
The parents in the stands who shouted profanity and to 'get off the field' should be ashamed. How would they like band parents to yell at their children because they don't win? They all should apologize publicly to the band and director and make sure this never happens ever again. How about the band not show up ever again to support the team? No spirit, no music, zip. Sit in silence. Shame on all of you. I am glad our children were never treated so abominably.
