Yep.  Friend of mine is an AD in Massachusetts, between the PC BS and the whacko parents he simply describes his job as brutal.

The OHSAA just issued a statement that might be indirectly related to some of this:

https://delphosherald.com/Content/Sports/Sports/Article/OHSAA-issues-stern-warning-to-parents-and-fans/192/1187/210823?fbclid=IwAR1Eg5OWbzbOpg-9fhciA2ot0FIf9GAtMUnEOspIrK2fLwJfCv9rzX1hEJE

I have to wholly agree with something like this.  Let the refs ref.  Let the coaches coach.  Let the players play.  Stop living vicariously through the players and/or trying to handle any team or coach issues for them.


 

There is a big push to stop the arm chair quarterbacks and soccer moms from acting up.  There are fewer and fewer officials.   That's the main concern

From someone who has coached various sports for 16 years and refereed (retired) for 18 years, I can say this.  The fans and parents are terrible... but AD's don't do anything.  They don't want to lose the revenue, and they don't want the uncomfortable conversation/confrontation.  So they let it slide.

I cannot imagine this happening to anyone else if it were not about President Trump.  Why do we do these things?  To the people who do these things, do they seriously look in the mirror and say, "This is exactly what I would want done to me if I were doing what they were doing, except in support of my 'side'..."

So contrived; you’d think the dems and their media could do a better job.
