25, it's because the parents want their little boy or girl to do well at something the parents themselves may have tried to do and failed. That's how it tends to be. If they can't do it themselves, next best is their offspring.

12. Yes because driving an SUV is basically like piloting Arnold Schwarzenegger in terminator.. Doesn't matter what you drive, it's the driver not the car that kills people, and most people can operate a motor vehicle but can't "Drive" a motor vehicle.

#35 That's the reason why I was "highly encouraged" To Graduate High School, get a Double Diploma in I.T from technical college and currently study at University. So I can understand what you are saying. My parents never graduated from High School and had to go to night school so that's why they encouraged me go do what they couldn't do. On topic though I guess the parents were over protective of their children and thought they couldn't do anything against the rules lol

I remember reffing at a juvenile wrestling tournament and it was the final match. You're usually supposed to get down on your stomach to check if it's a pin, but it was obvious cause the kid wasn't moving so I called it. After the match all the people supporting the kid who lost kept saying I was a failure at life and I'm lucky that my coach is here or they'd beat the shit out of me. Needless to say I've never reffereed again lol. I feel your pain OP.

48, Yeah who wants their kids to learn about fair play, ensure safety and generally learn how to play a game properly? Its much better to just be a badly dressed on field security guard, its the best way for kids to learn. 50, SUV's ARE more dangerous because of the design of the car. Whether the individual is a bad driver or not, there is a lack of visibility and functional impairment that comes with driving those things.

it's still fucked up that parents blame the ref for their child purposely fracturing another kids wrist and getting punished for it. This happened at my sisters soccer game once.

Sure refs know people are going to hate them but it's not right for them to do that! They are fucking 7, people need to calm down when it comes to sporting events

Very true. I play hockey on Saturday nights, and before I play, there are youth games I usually watch. How some parents act during those games, it's just flat out embarrassing.

sigh!... Unfortunately, at hockey and soccer matches, parents have beaten other parents to death. At least football games (that I attend) have two bleachers, one set for each teams parents. Unfortunately, there's no way to control what happens after the game. The best a ref can do is get a real close parking spot an leave quickly and quietly.

Like cape cod. Every single one of my cousins plays hockey! It's bizarre! Then again, the place is seasonal. Not much to do if you're there year round but swim and play hockey. Basically I agree and have a tendency to ramble

I've played basically every major sport at a competitive level aside from baseball, but I've noticed that hockey parents are the most ridiculous when it comes to freaking out but having no clue what they are saying lol

Don't worry about it, ref's are never loved. Just keep doing your job the best you can, but be sure to hide your car so they don't slash your tires.

I'd bring a blow horn next time. If you piss off the parents again, at least then you'll have something that hurts their ears. You could even duct tape the button down, leave it and run.
