Chain of Command in sports, in the workplace, the military, in governments, or most any organization is not to be trifled with, because without it there can be no order and without order there will be disorder, and/or dysfunctionality!

So individuals should be prepared for consequences & repercussions if they decide to inform on, or to circumvent the Boss for any reason which might be looked at as being insubordinate or disrespectful! It is the law of the Bush!
