As a fan of BYU football, I just have to say that offended parents are TOXIC
If you’re son or daughter plays a sport at any competitive level, they’d (and you as a parent) better learn to have some thick skin. Fans, teammates, coaches, etc will all bring a level of positivity and negativity based on their performance.
Rick Majerus used to chew his players out and use every name in the book. Jim McMahon used to grab receivers face masks and tell them to catch the ball or get off the field. Deron Williams used to yell at a used-to-be skinny Gordon Hayward. Fans show up to games with paper bags on their heads when they are frustrated with their teams performance. That is what happens when passion gets involved.
Whether a player, fan, coach, administrator, etc., all tend to have passion when it comes to sports. Are there other things far more important? Yes. But do all have a right to express their feelings, good and bad? Yes.
Many are invested at very different levels. Fans pay for tickets to be entertained. Donors give money to give back and receive perks. Athletes give time, effort, and their bodies and receive an education, friendships, and many experiences . Coaches give their time and reputation, but receive a salary and benefits. All are invested and have an equal right to share their opinions of the product, team, univerity, brand, coaching, etc.
So, when you come across a fan board, you’re going to find passion all across the spectrum. If you’re a parent and you choose to come to a fan board, especially CB, be prepared...
