It is a shame because it is fun to actually listen to the game. Too bad there aren't some soccer parent noise cancelling earbuds to drown out their constant droning on.....

The parents on my kids team think they know everything about soccer and are constantly critiquing the kids and making excuses for losses, etc. They count down time and remind their kids how much time is left. Joystick the kids around the field meanwhile kids are trying to think for themselves and listen to their coach. I can't imagine the pressure they are putting on their kids. Games are not enjoyable being around them.

I always think of one harmless soccer mom that drove me nuts ..... every time anyone besides her kid touched the ball she would say "Why don't they pass it?" or "Switch it" (when her daughter was on the other side of the field .... her daughter never passed or switched the ball.

Thumbs up

we have one mom that loudly criticizes kids BY NAME to everyone around her. It's maddening, esp. because I wonder if the kids can hear her too.

We had parents like that on our daughter's team too. They lived in Weston.

On my sons team I always enjoy when one of the loud parents who played soccer will coach them from the sidelines and then a few of his minions around him will just parrot the same thing. So we not only get the annoying parent coaching from the side but we get it thrice.

To hear the best stories, you need to speak off the record with a Referee.
