A ban on booing at high school athletic events???

So the initial reports that the commision that oversees high school competition in Washington state was considering changing its code of conduct for spectators to include a ban on booing was erroneous, it does present an interesting concept.


The commission does acknowledge a concern about the increase of unruly and profane fans degrading sportsmanship at the high school level, but apparently banning the boo is not on the agenda.
If it were, would such action have an impact – positive or negative – on spectators’ behavior at games?
Would it even be possible to administrate the rule?
Or has booing, in some form, become such a fixture at high school or any athletic event that now it’s just a matter of accepting it and moving on?

    who gives a fuck if someone boos? Isn’t that the ultimate sign of respect? All these pc people need to pull the cock out of their ass and worry about things that matter like Cal baseball. Come out and root for the boys.

    If they do decide to ban BOOING at the high school level I hope CIF lets everyone of Cal Highs staff and administration know the complete rule so they dont try and pass the buck when they claim ignorance of the rule.

    Maybe well get lucky and theyll all bite their tongues next year when they play SF in football..ya right!
