I’m afraid that a new generation of Sport Jerks is being cultivated. The only cure for it is for officials and coaches to dissuade unsportsmanlike behavior by calling appropriate penalties and benching offending players. If the parents object, tell them to leave and take their sons with them.
I doubt the lesson would take on the offenders but the rest of the team should see that behavior will not be rewarded or accepted.
