Are the parents comments worse than the players at High School sporting events?
Sometimes, parents act and talk worse than the athletes do at sporting events in high school. Some parents never grow up.
I don't know about the USA; however in England I used to have to open up changing rooms for children's Sunday league football, ages between 5-11. It certainly was an eye opener seeing the parents openly arguing with the referees, and an ear opener hearing them cheer on their little dears, exhorting them to kick their oponents, even 'break his leg.'
I've seen that too, Mick. It's really quite embarrassing, not really setting a fine example for the kids to follow. I always look at it as the parents trying to live their dreams through the children, which is really quite sad. I think it goes on in America too, I've heard the term 'Soccer Mom' thrown around quite a bit. I think it goes on everywhere to be honest.

Is it just my eyesight getting worse, or do the profile pictures on comments look smaller now?To me, it seems that the profile pictures on comments look smaller than they did before, or maybe my eyesight is getting worse looking at the computer so much.
