Sometimes it apears good to be in the squads. then you hear someone is holding up a sign that says"My son gave his life for the squads". Rays father was squaded.

The glorification of the squads is supposed to emphasize the horror of the sport to the reader. It is meant to intensify realization of how horrible humanity has become due to the Squads to the point they find the murder of men honorable. The reader is supposed to be disgusted by the unnecessary killing of men for the sake of entertainment. It is like modern-day gladiators.
