  • 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

      Entitlement mindset run amuck. Kids lose out but it was the other guys fault.

        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! 🤬
