Weird on many levels. Not sure those girls knew what they were signing up for.
And perfectly suited to be a mod.
People suck today.
Just curious, is this all-star tournament or still regular season?
So sad for the kids
That was a strike?
The high school at which I teach had state champion basketball teams in the 70s. My co-worker, who was on the teams, said his first name was "you son-of-a-bitch" for the four years he played. Coach was a maniac but nobody cared because they won.
How often has that happened without the jackass parents. Kids playing by themselves , figure out their own rules. I'm a big fan of disorganized sports. But, I don't know how many sandlots games go on nowadays , so I might be some old guy talking about how things used to be better. Seriously, I love sandlot baseball.
The price of weed must've gone up the day before around there.
Out of control manic maniacal weedheads...whatyagonnadowidem?
Throw em in jail!
Big parent fight at a LL hockey game here about 10 years ago... One parent stabbed another to death.
I coached LLB and Tourney ball for 12 years and I can tell you at least one time get the parents to take kids to the car at tourney in Reading Pa ...we were playing a team from Brooklyn and went we went ahead things it got really ugly ...
Doesn't surprise me at all.
CO is a nice place, IMO, but full of entitled PARENTS, teaching kids to be entitled.
It keeps getting worse around here. People think they're better than everyone.
Clipped from the article: Police said coaches and parents who were "unhappy with a baseball game" -- played by the 7-year-olds and officiated by a 13-year-old umpire.
There's the problem right there. Officiating by a 13-year-old? This kid simply CANNOT know the rules of baseball or is he anywhere NEAR qualified as an umpire OR to officiate a game.
Just an unbelievable outcome for all involved. Some of those folks need to go to jail. Simply disgusting how some people behave anymore. And their kids had to witness them behaving this way? Yeah, way to go, Dad. Your kids will grow up to be punk thugs, just like you!
I umpired Little League baseball for a lot of years. Never, EVER witnessed anything remotely close to this at a game I officiated. Kids played and had fun, parents behaved and nobody got hurt, cops were never called and nobody went to jail over a call on the field or the outcome of a game. Just WTF is WRONG with people that sucker punching people in a melee is the norm anymore?
I watched a video on Facebook the other day where several adults called a high school player a piece of s**t for a bad play. When his grandfather intervened on his behalf, he got kicked out of the game. I knew some of the people involved as they work for a nearby law enforcement agency. I was ashamed to watch this video and wondered just what they were thinking. Maybe I'm the one who doesn't get it, but I thought this was a game and I thought it was for the development of team spirit and cooperation amongst youth for the benefit of their futures. Apparently, it's about vicarious competition amongst adults whose last major accomplishment was years ago. Sad.
I think it would be nice for the local professional sports teams to join together and ban any parents who are banned from any league. You are banned from little jonnies 5-7 little league? No Rockies games for you.
The biggest problem in Pee Wee and Little League has always been the parents, but now its getting really bad. The problem, basically, is that former athletes want, oftentimes, still have their competitive egos to satisfy. No one cares, but a former athlete, and I have been guilty before reflecting on it, wants everyone to remember them and how good they were and the big win and they absolutely want their children to keep that attention on them. Its pretty sad. I was athlete of the year my senior year of High School and my degree is in Phys ed. Having put my son in wrestling for one year, it was a general embarrassment to me to see parental behavior. After the season, my son switched to music and theater full-time. It was his decision but after reflecting on my experience with sports, I was thrilled he was leaving them behind. I still like some sports, but its far less important every passing day to me.
Goodness knows what the aliens thought when they saw us perform that little spectacle!
I can't tell you how often people can't do anything because their kids have a game. I'm like so? They will probably do better without you there, and it will be great for them to be on their own. But the parents rarely miss. So is the sport for the kid or for the adult? If your child will have more growth in a game without parents there, why go to all the games? If your child competes better without dad making him nervous, which is a LOT, then miss a few matches. Its good for the parents. Its good for the kids. But parents can't stand the thought of not being able to somehow control their children's lives anymore.
True story: I got out of coaching because of parents. Too many dumb ones that want total control even over the coaches. Too many kids that don't want to play but do it for the parents.
Attack during the game, when the protectors of the youth are beating the heck out of each other probably.
