Last time I checked, the kids preferred it when all their parents brought loaded firearms to their soccer games.

Hockey Canada did a great set of public information commercials targeting parents.

What the fark is wrong with people? Why would they possibly need the threat of deadly force at a children's soccer game?

I see you were never a scout.

Why, to defend themselves from all the other armed parents, of course!

Wait a second, what's that? She ended up being killed by a firearm after attention-whoring to the media about how she needed to carry at all times, including children's soccer games "to be safe"? Wow. Shocking.

Through grounded theory analysis, three parent "roles" emerged from the data-supportive parent, demanding coach, and crazed fan."

I am personally a split of supportive parent and crazed fan. Cheering all good plays by both teams but if there is a close play that goes against my "team" my knees go unhinged until I can recover and cheer the good play and comment on the arm cannon that is on the other team.

I used to coach/ref youth baseball games. We used to joke that next season we where going to coach the orphan league so we didn't have to deal with the parents. It's amazing how nobody wants to help with practice and then will show up for the game and act like a complete douchbag.

One parent was being so foul and obnoxious when I was reffing a game that I held the game and told him to leave the field or play would not resume until he left. He looked shocked (even after I had warned him twice) but he left and we didn't have a problem with him again.

The point is, stop trying to live vicariously through your child who you wont even help with practice.

I had a few problems with parents when I coached my kids but it was nothing compared to the crap I got running my son's cub scout pack. The real psychos don't let there kids participate in sports.

When did this start happening? I played little league in the 80s, and this was never a problem... except the occasional drunk father or what have you.

Parents came, cheered, bought the kids a hot dog after the game, and left.

Reffing youth soccer made me want to bring a stun gun or cattle prod to deal with unruly parents. Dear Goddess, the U10 league was the worse. Muscle control is pretty established, so there's actually, you know, soccer being played. And it's the first taste a lot of these parents have of their child's competitions. Freaking animals.
