I've railed against idiot parents at youth sports forever. But THIS........ takes the friggin cake.
The Dad didn't like the move the opponent made on his kid (which I admit - did look damn dangerous - dropping the kid on his head like that) - so the got up a running head of steam and TRUCKED the kid off the mat!
He was promptly arrested and charged for the incident.
Funny thing, though - I remember several years back the subject of youth sports came up on the show and I asked- "Which sport has the worst parents?" (meaning the parents who are the most out of control at games).
I fully expected the answer to be hockey. Hockey parents are known for screaming stuff and losing their cool (and if you're a hockey parent - don't get your panties in a twist. You know you've seen it!). But to my surprise- the number one response we got? WRESTLING parents. I was shocked. I had never heard of any incidents like that, but man - I did that day. Because of that- I wasn't that shocked when I saw this story.
And the fact that I wasn't shocked- might be the saddest part of it all.
How do we expect our kids to act like adults, when the adults act like kids?
