The parental attitude that feeds this insanity is that, "My kid is the next Michael Jordan, and this game is my meal ticket to a comfortable retirement." The refs are depriving these parents of their God-given rights to watch their son or daughter play professionally on national TV. The ultimate fear is that their kid is actually just like any other kid, and probably won't get a single headline in their entire lifetime. That possibility seems unbearable. The only thing worse than how they treat the refs, is how they treat the kid. It's really, really sick.
