Troy mentions multiple times throughout the novel his discontent with his son playing football, and as it comes to light that Cory reduced his job hours in order to play, Troy’s opinion of Cory playing sports degrades even further. As soon as Troy learns of Cory’s decision to lessen his work hours, he commands Cory to beg for his job back.
