Father Pulls Gun on Youth Coach, Police Say
AP
PHILADELPHIA (Oct. 23) - A father pulled a gun on a youth football coach because his son wasn't getting enough playing time, police said.

Wayne Derkotch, 40, was arguing with the coach Sunday morning during a game of 6- and 7-year-olds in northeast Philadelphia when he pulled out the gun, police said.

No shots were fired and no one required medical treatment, authorities said.

Derkotch was charged with aggravated assault, simple assault and reckless endangerment. He did not immediately return a telephone message left at his home Monday.

A referee who allegedly threw a punch at a man was also arrested on assault charges, but it was not clear if that fight was related to the first altercation, police spokeswoman Lisa Rotolo said.

I'd be mad if my kid was mad to sit out a lot, but it depends on the leagues rules. I use to play baseball and one time the coach sat me out 2 or 3 innings in a row. The limit was 1 or 2 and my parents complained to him about it. I'm not going to pay money to sit on the bench all day.

That sucks.. the only solution to that problem is to blow the coaches head clean off!

Why are people so goddamned obsessed over these games? Greedy, deluded parents gambling on the chance that their kid will be a millionaire all-star player?

Man, this seems to be a growing problem. Parents need to stay on the sidelines where they belong.

This is exactly the kind of news thread that does NOT belong in P&N.
