Anything can happen in a sports game – an underdog team can pull the rug from under a powerhouse squad, a star player brings his team to victory, or a coach engages himself in a fight against a spectator.
Sports do not just revolve around wins and losses. The acts of violence still remain even in the modern days.
Resorting to Violence
According to theories, there are two main reasons why violence exist in sports.
The first one suggests that it is already present in human instinct, which was developed out of our needs to survive. The other deals more about our sociological aspects as we view sports as mock battles, which can evolve into an actual fight because of the level of competition.
Many athletes of the modern day are now less tolerant of brutality. But there are still players and coaches who cannot keep their composure, which may lead to unwanted fights.
In the video below, a fuming coach confronted and attacked a parent after his team absorbed a loss in a baseball game. Whether it is something driven by instinct or sociology, this coach’s act is not something young players and aspiring coaches should imitate.
The coach of a losing team in the Little League baseball tournament was fed up with the comments made during the final round. The game was very crucial that he lost his cool after absorbing a sorry loss, forcing him to pick a fight against the athlete’s dad.
According to the description in the YouTube video, the uploader described the losing team as shame, sick, and pathetic.
“Zad closes the Championship with 10 STRIKEOUTS IN THE LAST 4 INNINGS to ice the victory. But…. this is DISGUSTING. I will see to it that this video is posted everywhere so everyone can know what kind of garbage the MONARCHS are. What a shame. Sick. Pathetic.”
“The Monarchs 3rd base coach actually called our catcher a “dumbass”. The police did come out and view all the videos, interviewed the appropriate people, know the name of the SICKO and hopefully will make the arrest shortly. Charges have been pressed. What a sorry excuse for a man.”
Finally, he insisted that such action in sports is ‘truly sickening.’
“To act this way at a youth sporting event is truly sickening. The Monarchs Moms and the foul language is so disappointing. I feel sorry for the players. I would NEVER allow my son to play for such a pathetic team!”
