In the sense of this connection between the documentary and the piece that Martin Luther King Jr. wrote, Barry Switzer had accepted the penalty of losing Marcus Dupree after a year.

Ted reacts to the situation by sending a letter to the White House pleading for his father, the president, to come and persuade the coach into allowing him to play varsity.

The coach may leave the child out from playing so that their team can win without someone that would prevent them from winning.
