Classless behavior

Postby heimer » Thu Jan 16, 2020 6:49 pm

Just witnessed some of the worst behavior out of parents I've ever seen.

C-squad game, parents come unglued when an official calls a turnover by the team with a lead out of press by the team trailing in the game. Final minute. Coach of the leading team was trying to call time out, the other official saw it late.

After the whistle, the second official blew his whistle, and attempted to come in and communicate with his partner that the team with the lead did, in fact, call a time out. The time out would have prevailed.

The coach of the team with the lead decided to throw a fit and takes a technical foul before the officials can fix the problem.

Parents are all over these two young refs, and they are young, standing and berating these guys trying like aytch eee double-hockey sticks to get the call right.

It's sickening. This team has a fan base that is a real problem at home and on the road, and, of course, they are used to getting their share of favorable calls "down" there where they come from.

Grow up. It's a C-squad game. The refs are likely in college trying to work their way up.

Your kids learn this. No wonder we can't find coaches and referees. Fans need to settle the eff down.
God is bigger than football.

Watched a fan get kicked out of the Stutsman County Boys Tournament last weekend and would like to see more of it. Unfortunately it is a very difficult thing for a referee to do. Would love to see the AD's and people in charge of the venue start removing obnoxious fans and maybe after some were removed the behavior would at least diminish. Heimer is 100% right that this is one of the major reasons we struggle to find referees or coaches, especially at the sub-varsity levels.
