I have 4 hockey grandkids ranging from first year mite to Pee Wee. I’m retired and go to as many games as I can and there always seems to be the one parent that is “that guy” At a girls u10 game 2 weeks ago one parent on the opposing team was so upset and so loud that I thought the veins were going to pop in his neck. Another parent from his team asked him to settle down and his response was “you want to go”? The other parent didn’t respond but I noticed a police officer standing at the top shortly after keeping an eye on things. One, how sad is we have to involve police because someone wants to fight at a U10 girls’ game and two I feel so sorry for that parent’s kid because his tirade was focused more on the players than the ref.
