Most parents who watch their kids playing are great but unfortunately there are still a lot of foal-mouthed tools out there. I wish these idiots would just shut up and let the refs and linos do their job. In most cases these guys are volunteers and are doing a decent job. So to all you lazy loud mouths who in most cases don't lift a finger to help just keep your mouths shut and let the refs and linos do their job so the kids can enjoy playing. And if you think you can do a better job then why aren't you doing it instead being on the sideline hurling abuse.

Probably because they either still don't know the rules of the game (even though little Jonny or Susie has been playing since they were 5!) or because they're the ones that have the 'win at all costs' mentality. 

I think the clubs really need to start taking a tougher stance with these types and just start telling them to pull their heads in or go play somewhere else. I'm sure if there was a concerted push from all clubs working together, this type of behavior could be stamped out pretty quickly.

As long as it's not the coaching staff that are leading by example and doing the same thing....only worse!!!

It's not just the refs and linesperson that needs to be taken into account. What about the development and enjoyment of the players? You hear so many stories aroung the grounds, in actual fact around the world regarding parent and coach behaviour. You only have to check out the web and you can see the behaviour of some parents and coaches. Some countries have even put together a respect campaign which includes videos. I also agree clubs need to take some responsibility, it has to start somewhere.
