    Another classy parent.

    This an example of what is happening all over our country with lack of respect towards police, teachers and coaches.

    By the way this happened at a Catholic school.

    That father is a moron.

    That being said, respect is a two-way street.

    This type of behavior, of course this a extreme one, is one of the many reasons why no one wants to coach sports or teach.

    helicoptor parents came in all shades I guess...yes I agree with cr, what a jackass, however this really is no different than a parent in an affluent town strong arming the administration for jr's grades. The bottom line is both types of parents are doing their children no favors.

    When I coached (and I coached both of my sons in baseball and football for almost 10 years), any time there was a draft for choosing teams, I picked kids considering what kind of kid (not athlete) they were, what kind of parents they had and what kind of families they were. If the kid was a superstar but acted like an entitled little sh:t, or if the parents were known jagoffs, I wouldn't take the kid. Got some strange looks from the other coaches at the drafts a lot of times, but I always had decent (and sometimes very good) teams, and no problems. Wouldn't change a thing if I was still doing the coaching thing.

    Try to understand not everyone lives on LI where there are a lot of unemployed Wall Street types who think they can coach and teach better than everyone else.
