As soon as the game starts, parents lose any semblance of class. It's incredible.

Vancouver parents who heckle opposing players or referees at their children's hockey, soccer or basketball games could soon find themselves doing 100 push-ups or lugging oranges to the next game as a form of punishment.

Considering some of the size of the parents who attended my soccer games growing up, that's essentially a death sentence.

maybe it's over due for CA and USA to require parents of participants to attend a Good Sportsmanship / Grow The Fark Up class pre-season or their child does not play.

Yeah that seems about right. I remember my coach on my youth hockey league was sentenced to coaching us as a community service. We were a rag tag bunch of misfits but lovable. Our convict coach did some recruiting in the local ghetto and we even got one of the best players from the championship team re-zoned so he had to play for us. We even beat the those champions who by the way were a bunch a-holes. Ah! Good times! Good times.

That's just ducky. They must have shown  a lot of plu

in all seriousness, if a parent misbehaves they should be forced to become refs if they want their kid to keep playing,

Maybe if the kid is punished, he will demand his parents behave?

You can:

(A) tell the guilty parents to leave and if they don't have their kid's team forfeit.
(B) Taze them
(C) Have all the kids from the opposing team wipe their buggars on their sleeves

Is this some sort of Canadian thing?

Judge:  "I find you guilty of aggravated moose-farking, eh.  I sentence you to lug these 2 cases of oranges aboot.  Sorry."
Criminal:  "Sorry to be a bother, eh"
Judge:  "Not a problem, eh.  Have a nice day."
Criminal:  "You, too, eh.  Have a good one."

Yeah!  Make the parents do pushups.  Show those kids that physical exercise is a punishment.  That'll point 'em in the right direction.
 
2013-04-10 08:47:44 AM
You want to stop this kind of thing?

Video the abuse, post it to youtube then link it on the facebook group and tag the parents in it. Nothing like letting the entire community know that Mrs or Mr Sucesses thinks calling a 9 year old a cock sucking whore is a normal thing to do.

/Then ban them from the side lines.

Maybe they will just allow them to do pushups.

Maybe this is a big misunderstanding and the offending parents would just be required to supply the bullied kids with 100 tasty orange push-up frozen dessert treats.

You misspelled "spiffy" in that tag there, subby. Kids only learn good sportsmanship when the coaches and parents model good sportsmanship.

How about throw their ass out?

We've managed to argue them down to a booting.

mortimer_ford: How about throw their ass out?


This.

I'm a little league coach (well, assistant coach).  The president of our league has no compunction about banning a parent from games.

Usually we don't have to take it that far, though, because any parent that is so wrapped up in the game that they step over the line isn't going to risk not going to them once they've been warned.

I and the guy I coach with won't stand for it.   We're the coaches.  You are the parent.  While that kid is on the field, he is to listen to us, not you.  If you start telling him to do stuff, that's confusing him.  It's like having two different bosses, often telling you two different things.  If you don't like that, fine.  You can take it up with the president of the league, and if you still can't keep it under control, you can leave.   No refunds if you quit or are asked to leave for cause, either.

Also, not every kid can play first base.   We have your kid playing where he is playing for a reason.  Maybe he's better at throwing than catching, or maybe his reflexes aren't as fast and he needs extra time to decide where the ball is moving to.   If we have to place the fat kid who can't move that well, but who can catch really good, or the tall lanky kid who can catch but who can't throw worth a damn at first base, that's what we are going to do.   Every kid has their strengths and weaknesses, and for most games we're going to put them where we can capitalize on their strengths and minimize their weaknesses.   We'll change them around every so often, of course, especially if it's against a team we think we can beat handily, but a kid who can't catch playing first is going to more demoralized by losing all the time than if he were in the outfield of a winning team.

I'm Canadian, and I have no idea what that means. Maybe it's a West Coast thing?

Agreed. IMHO I'm in decent physical shape and go to the gym regularly, but there is no way I could bust out 100 push-ups at one go.
