Recently a soccer ref, died after being punched by a player. I just read where a track team was disqualified after a member upon winning an event "gestured to the sky" as thanks for the one above. Then a swimming polo member pushes one into the during handshaking after the event. All this adds-up to some poor athletes or conduct at a sporting event. All those governing bodies should really look over the consequences that any of this involves, to include removal of athlete, banning, scrub record(s)or outright criminal procedure process started. Label any way you want, its gotten too common.
If the conduct is so allowed it can only escalate as time goes on. These are the athletes not the parents I'm referring to. I would think that criminal proceeding are started if parents get too wound-up. If athletes are allowed to get away with this and governing bodies take too long to address it, then a major incident is sure to happen, sooner or later. "You're outta here..." -----Willy
