    Kick that parent off the field!
    It’s actually worse - a lot of the youth games only have a youth referee with no adult. And they have to deal with these adults all by themselves. Kudos to the young refs.

    I was never into sports myself and never pushed my son into them. He may have missed out on some good things, but he also never had to deal with “Sports Parents”.

    Doctor Toon! In the grand tradition of the Great Tank MacNamara I must correct you. That’s properly “Ports Sparents!”

    When I was league president I used to patrol the sideline of our 25 fields all day long. The minute a parent opened their mouth I handed them an application for our ref class and said thank you for voulenteering. I also made a 40 year old man come to a board meeting and explain to the board why he thought it was appropiate to scream at a 13 year ref until she started to cry before I would let him or his kid back on the fields.

    fbjsr, Bravo to you! What did the father have to say to the board to explain his behavior?

    Well done, fbjsr. I too want to know the end of the story.

    Since his wife wanted their child to keep playing , he came and said he was sorry and signed a contract pledging good behavoir. She came with him and gave him “the eye’ the whole time. I actualy felt sorry for him by the time it was over.

    Funny thing is, this would be tame from what I’ve dealt with at my soccer club.

    Sometimes it seems that sports is the spit valve for the insanity stored within us.

    C’mon people, that’s what dreams are for.
