Crazy Parents

Recommended Posts

I helped ref some little kids matches at an ISWA tourney once. The parents who were allowed to be matside that day should have never been taught how to procreate.

 

I was talked into reffing a Jr High dual between Jimtown and Concord back in the early eighties. My thinking was that I would make a few extra dollars and it was a Jr High match, no big deal...

 

WRONG! By the end of the dual, I had parents from both schools, one being my own, threatening to whip my ass out side. I decided then and there that reffing was not my calling and parents were nutz!

Back when I flopped around on the mat for a certain HS in #TheCounty (not named Brownsburg), we were wrestling at the '93 or '94 Mid-State Conference meet in Mooresville.  A head coach (from a school where a really big IndyCar Racetrack exists) had his son wrestling in the championship and lost on a last second score.  The coach got so mad that he picked up his coaches folding chair and threw it as far as he could across the gym, ala Bobby Knight on steroids.  As I watched the chair fly over my head it landed on a poor wrestler who was taking a nap in the bleachers and had to injury default his final match.  Luckily, a couple of Dad's escorted the coach outside until the cops came.  Never sure what happened to him, but he wasn't around for the rest of that season.

That's bs some poor kid had to injury default...That is lawsuit worthy lol

Now a days it would be lawsuit worthy, but not 24 years ago... Things have changed...

 

Agreed... 24 years ago, it was an a$$ whippin' that would teach a lesson.  Today, it's all about feelings and not getting punched in the face.

So the kid who got hit in the face with a chair thrown by a grown man is the wimp in this situation?

Ha... never!  I meant the coach needed to get a butt whoopin' to teach him a lesson about how stupid of an act it was.  I'm not sure who that kid was, but I remember he was a begging to wrestle.  They iced his knee up, but he could barely walk... a horrible situation all around.

I agree with you on that one! I figured that's what you meant!
