If you think about it, what the Career districts are doing makes a lot of sense. Training up Tributes to volunteer means that 1) you can control who gets chosen (something tells me that there's hell to pay for Career Tributes who are expected to volunteer but don't), 2) the kids who actually do get sent have a pretty good chance of winning, 3) you avoid the whole 12-year-old-in-the-arena thing, and 4) you can get rid of troublemakers pretty easily (bad grades? bad attitude? general mischief-making? Welcome to Tribute school!)

There are some fic ideas there...

EDIT: So if you think about it, the Career districts are the first to exert some measure of control against the Capitol, albeit in a backhanded sort of way. And the Gamemakers probably turn a blind eye because it makes for a better show...
