Yip, the system is wrong. The club or more often the coach of the team is held responsible for player and parent behaviour, as it's his team. How is this fair? A coach, regardless of age/ experience should be responsible for the coaching staff and players only, he has the ability to deal with either of those 2 parties by subbing/ telling said person or people not to return to the team for the forseeable or ever depending on the relevant circumstances. However, are coaches able to deal with either a parent or indeed any other "passer by" who decides to shout abuse, given that most parks etc are public property? It will only stop when parents themselves are fined, which would involve police at every grass roots match, never going to happen. The player enjoyment is being robbed out of the game, not just refs!I was a youth coach and later a club secretary, no matter how much you spoke to other coaches or parents the abuse continued. I honestly struggle to see a solution to it because even after explaining that the club got fined and could potentially be expelled from the league it didn't stop.
