Now can't speak to the Friday game because I wasn't there.

In the grand scheme of things, this was not a big deal; however, opponents of DTS should not have to "turn their backs" and ignore classless behavior either. There is nothing wrong with shining a light on unacceptable behavior by parents. I'm just surprised that this episode didn't lead a DTS dad to challenge someone to a fight in front of 11 year old girls.

Not trying to downplay it...really I am since its been almost 24hrs since the incident but...

Look it up on YouTube "parents argue after kids soccer game" I'm sure it's at about 2million views by now. I even saw a special on 60 minutes about it.

Or better yet, does it change your opinion about our group? Let me answer that for you...Nope. You felt that way about us before the "argument" that's why you had your cameras ready. 

Me honestly, I think domestic arguments are more critical to your child's psyche than a public verbal dispute. You can put your kids earmuffs on an walk them away...at home they are in their rooms wondering are their parents gonna split up.

But I come from a different place in the world where I don't condone the behavior but there sure are much bigger issues in our lives I'd rather shine the spotlight on. This is small talk for beauty salons and practice.

The title of this thread should have been broader...

"What is a field Marshall?"

Like forreal...aren't there preventative measures for incidents like this? Queue the sarcastic, facetious answers...but seriously. Outside of the obvious, meaning maturity and restraint...what are the preventative measures for safety and order?

Kix...You just don't get it.

Would a domestic agrument be more harmful to your kid, I don't know, but I do know that a mom cussing/yelling and apparently a dad challenging another parent to fight does NOT help your child's psyche. Why do any of it?

That's a good way to put even more pressure on your little 5th grader.  Not only does she get to hear you on the sideline all game and probably on the ride home, but now she has to worry about how she won't get into college because she had a bad game.

DTS has been in and around this age group with many of the same players for years. I can't see why this is a big deal to some of you.

You act as if this is the first time you have witnessed a DTS parent scream, cuss, jump up and down, whine and cuss at the officials, speak to opposition players and challenge others to a fight.

I am with Kix 100% on this - there really isn't anything to see here - at least anything we haven't seen already. This is pretty much the rule with this group in any game against top competition, not the exception.

Edmund Burke once said "All that is needed for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." While I don't intend to incite religion or morals into the conversation, I do think there should be an acceptable standard of behavior (regardless of moral or values) that is maintained by all parents at all matches. I can't imagine how a parent or adult could feel that swearing in anger or threatening to fight adds any value to their DDs development or the overall experience of these 11 year olds. More than likely, it is reflective of the lack of discipline and self control by these parents and the values/morals they maintain.

I do have a problem with the way the DTS parents acted on Friday (and Sun as well, from what has been shared). While I can voice my concern and use it (as I have) to teach my DD about the behaviors that lead to success (and those that don't) in life, I will always voice my concerns when adults start acting like children in front of children. No value ever comes from this...ever...for anyone. I would hope that those parents on DTS who do not act this way would help this parent / these parents understand that this behavior is not appropriate ever.

Ron White once said "you can't fix stupid."

There absolutely is an acceptable standard of behavior on the sidelines but just like laws that are set in our society, there will always be those that just don't think they apply to them.

You are free to use any incident you wish to teach your children valuable life lessons...and I agree that this was probably a good teaching moment.

In the end, it isn't our job to try and manage other teams parents behavior. The only way their behavior is going to change is when someone within their own group has the balls to stand up and tell them it is unacceptable.  In most situations I would think this would be the coach, but obviously he doesn't take much issue with it since its been going on for years now.  It is a black eye for their team and in the end all these parents do is take the shine away from their own girls that are a pretty good team.

There are always going to be people like this and contrary to popular belief not everyone can be fixed, nor do many of them want to be.  Your approach is the correct one in using it to teach your own kids and that is the value that comes out of it.  Our kids are going to have to face people like this throughout their entire lives and the sooner they can learn to ignore them the better off they will be in the end.

You should voice your concerns. My point is that voicing them on a soccer forum is not going to yield the results that can make a difference. Take the appropriate action and call NTX Soccer, Dallas Texans, Tournament Director, etc and let them know what happened. These organizations do not take kindly to this type of behavior because it hurts their brand. You have to go through the process, but in the end if one moron can be removed from the sidelines we are all better off.
