Parents lack of sportsmanship

I do not do football, but work basketball with a lot of friends who do work football here in St. Louis. This is horrible sportsmanship on the part of parents. What a poor example for these kids!!!!

To my mind, the folks at the game were lucky there was a police presence at the game. What might have happened if there wasn't an officer there to restrain and remove this unruly parent?

One reason why the perfect gig is officiating games at an orphanage.

Even better are games involving juvy camps. I worked a few of them, and there are more security personnel present, than fans. They surround the field, and NOBODY comes out of the stands. The players are FIRMLY told, that if they cause trouble on the field, they're immediately benched, and off the team.

That one ranks right up there with the video of the dad running out of the stands and shoving the young player who made a big hit on his kid
