  • Kids Football Canceled, Unruly Parents


    Here's a sad commentary.
    Pop Warner cancels football season for 3 CNY teams due to bad spectator behavior - newyorkupstate.com

    There's also a major shortage of high-school referees in this area. When that was reported, reasons weren't given besides the general shortage of people wanting to work, but no doubt it's more of a thankless job than ever before.

    Same scenario over the years at every level competition breeds bad behavior from little league to pro sports. Been there ,player , parent, coach seen poor behavior from parents ! I have be threatened attacked both verbal and physically but I learned quick . Keep any association with the parents to a minimum , parents think with emotion and that’s never good. I dealt with it by no favors to the kids and every kid counts , over a decade it worked . Still run into the kids I coached and they tell me they had a great time . Many went on to play college , it’s the ones who ended it up in drugs that’s the saddest thing . One of my best kids /athletes sits in jail because of drugs . Breaks my heart that kid was as clutch player as I ever met, the kid was amazing right up till a bad crowd and drugs took over! Trouble with youth sports is parents , it’s that simple

        Nowadays bad behavior could be anything. Using the wrong pronoun, wearing the wrong hat or tee shirt. Media report what they want to report, reality be damned!

            I wonder if they play musical chairs anymore ? If they do I’m sure if there are eight kids there are eight chairs ! No kid left out !

              Tee Ball and HS Rodeo!
              Some parents are absolutley "cut throat".
              I disliked those "win at all cost" types.
              Did get to see some parents I would like to wear out a bat on! ...and they were talking to their own kid! 🤬
