For that they could specify the music to be played at all games.

Is music a directly used game tool used by both teams? This is an absurdity.

Are the writings on a football a game tool either? They have no effect on how the ball bounces. But the music is going to be more noticed by everyone in the vicinity who isn't deaf.

They were already getting ridiculous with things like this that have no effect on the game when they started meddling with face painting.

And I've noticed the same when it comes to governing bodies of all sorts of games. The rule books keep growing as they keep specifying more details, which is OK when necessary but silly when it gets into matters extraneous to the play of the games themselves, which unfortunately it often does.

"Face painting" is not always innocuous. At the NFHS level (Interscholastic athletes, and younger) it can easily lead to trash talking, which can often lead to bigger problems. Considering there is no possibility of out-imagining" what the average American teenager can think of, specific restrictions and definite limitations make a lot sense and avoid a LOT of needless arguments.

Music is no exception.

I hope you know I wasn't serious about the music, but was using it for reduction to absurdity. But you are serious about music issues?

So could tattoos and that was once a rule from the NF addressing issues with tatoos. I am not sure this was also a football rule, but I remember it in another sport. Thank God that went away very quickly.

Peace

The only reason NFHS addresses such items is because somewhere, at sometime, a problem arose from players' misuse of said items.

It's a shame that we are portrayed as the spoilsports when we act as the Fashion Police.

I agree, so let those places deal with their issues on some level. Advertising is not a big issue every place.

For example, we have had had an issue with logos in the middle of the field. Many logos do not have the line going through the logo properly. Well our state said to just report it and that can influence if a school hosts a playoff game. Usually solves the problem and if there is no line going through the logo, somehow the world functions.

Peace
