At the kids football today. Ten year olds.
My kids team got hammered in the first half. 4-0. But in the Second half turned it around and they completely wiped the floor with them to win 8-4
As the other team were getting beaten the players started getting nasty. One of the boys went in knee high, studs first and our player took the studs all down his knee. Left a nasty bruise.
These are ten year olds.
At the end of the game, one of the fathers was heard encouraging his kid to do it harder next time as he deserved it.
It wasn’t an isolated incident. Constant egging them on to ‘go in hard’.
What is it about kids football that turns some parents into complete arseholes?
I’m only just started to get involved in it but I presume this bollox is commonplace?
