In soccer most teams have rivalries that tend to get very physical. I think generally, the players have a respect for each other and the game. However, it is the parents that are the problem and often escalate what happens on the pitch up in the stands when they disagree with the official.

While these games are often "playoff caliber intensity" they are also more physical and officials need to call them tight early in the match, rather than later. Rivals like Brigton - Alta, Bountiful - Viewmont, and Park City - Wasatch are no different.

The frustrating part for me is that we don't give any blame to these referees. I 100% understand that the parents should act like parents. They need to keep their composure and act like adults. But is this game going to be looked at by the state? Normally grown up's can keep their composure for the most part. Especially in rivalry games refs need to be on their A game.

Soccer brings out the absp;ute worst in parents. I don't know what it is, but soccer parents have more problems than any other sport. It is sad. I am not a fan of soccer, but these athletes deserve their parents to act like adults.
