I see nothing wrong with boosters

The Blackman High School Football Booster Club has caught the attention of the Tennessee Comptroller.This is not a good thing for Blackman.In a report released last month, the Comptroller determined there was more than $96,000 in coaches supplements and other questionable spending that came from two bank accounts operated by the football boosters. This is a major no-no, the Comptroller says, about payments that took place between June 16, 2011 and March 27, 2015. Perhaps not so coincidentally, the Blackman football coach resigned March 27, 2015.Some of the questionable transactions included checks written to “cash” and marked with descriptions on the memo line such as: “coaches supplement,” “summer $$ #2,” “summer $ - final,” and “gift cards.”
