Obviously by now everyone has probably heard that Airport tore down their unsafe light poles at the football field. There has been a lot of talk about whether they should replace them or just play on Saturdays.
While High School football has been traditionally played on Friday nights many schools have played on Saturday afternoons. My thought is does it really matter?
I realize that there are practice and scouting implications involved when teams play on Saturdays but are they really going to have a negative effect on any of the teams involved?
Monroe CC played on Saturday nights for years. Whenever Monroe High had a Friday night home game CC would move their game to Saturday night. For me it was always a chance to see another game.
I think the price tag is a little high for the light post they are talking about. They can probably find quality lighting for a half of the cost from companies that are looking to move product and keep their employees working.
It is tough economic times for everyone including school districts lights at the football field should be the last thing on anybody's mind.
I say let Airport play on Saturday's if they have to or even if they want to.
