Soccer mom goes wild............

    First she goes after the 14 year old girl referee.

    Then, when the girls' father intervened, she punched him in the face.

    And then when an off duty copy intervenes, she assaults him.

    And THEN the husband tries to yank the cop off the wife.

    Both husband & wife were charged.

    All I can say is: This thread is useless without pictures.

    $10 says that guy has a mullett. :)


    And some of you will go nuts with this:

    Though they won the game 3-1, the Hillcrest coach decided to withdraw the team from the tourney.

    The kids were presented with participation trophies anyway. "Just because of a parent's frustration shouldn't mean the kids should be penalized," said Augustin.

    It's not uncommon at the lower levels, simply because the parents don't understand the game and get more frustrated/angry. They haven't had enough experience as 'sports parents' to know the game and the expected behavior. Absolutely no excuse, but it's a factor.

    Disappointing there were no photos of the women's mug shot or a reaction shot as she was being dragged off the field. I bet it would be priceless.

    Seen the same thing in baseball. The parents were at each others' throats at lot more in 7-8 year old tournament games than later.

    I think most came to get a little perspective (for a lot of them it was that their kid wasn't very good so no sense blowing your aorta).
  9. Damn.
    I was hoping this would be soccer mom goes BUCK wild.
