On the other hand

On the other hand, the dispute between Cory and Troy does reaches its peak when the latter goes to the A&P and learns that his son has been lying on him for three weeks and did not return for his job as he has promised. Troy sees Cory’s insistence on playing football as a disrespect for his authority and power as father and breadwinner and he will not allow such disobedience. Therefore, he decides to impose his decision on his son by going to Mr. Zellman, Cory’s coach, and telling him that he must dismiss Cory from the team. With this act, Troy prevents his son from achieving him dreams and the bounds that gather them collapse. Cory for the first time in his life unleashes his wrath against his father as he feels that his father is jealous of his prospective career in football and fears that his son might achieve what he has failed to achieve. He bursts out his anger and utter the bitter truth, “Just cause you didn’t have a chance! You just scared I’m gonna be better than you, that’s all” (Fences 58). Troy tells him to watch out from the consequence of his deeds or otherwise he will see something he has never seen.
