Players are bullying teammates and their competition in a multitude of ways. Coaches are turning a blind eye to what these young men are doing. Also society makes excuses for these players such as “their just kids” or “boys will be boys” It seems the intolerance in high school football players have for others is becoming part of the culture in today's world. Many times when a player or coach breaks rules it's team that gets punished when no one but that player or coach committed the infraction.
