My mum doesn't allow my sister to play rugby because she didn't want her to get injured.
Tyler Callum Owen's comment, August 17, 2014 9:22 PM
This article is true because parents really do wrap their kids in cotton wool. I think that kids should be free to do what they want, and parents should stay as the spectator because its the kids choice not the adult. I read the quote 'soccer is more skillful than rugby', which is completely untrue both sports have their merits and required skills. Soccer is just a craze because its the biggest sport in the world compared to other sports who pride themselves on being different. Kids are just joining in on the craze to be quite honest.
Todd Davies's comment, August 18, 2014 6:37 PM
This article does tell us how parents wrap their kids in cotton wool but with all the harmful injuries such as head injuries, parents do have the right to protect their child from the danger of head injuries. This isn't to say not to let them play rugby or other sports but maybe start them in another sport to see how they enjoy sport and if they want to play rugby in the future let them have the choice.

This article is true because yes our bodies have not fully adapted to the life style we live in where junk food is around every corner. And yeah for future generations life expectancy will go down to counteract the junk food which supply more energy than our body can cope with.

Having aggressive parents on the sideline took the enjoyment out of the game and ended up making the players aggressive as well , it also made the game all about winning.
Todd Davies's comment, August 10, 2014 6:48 PM
When on the field the worst and most annoying thing is having parents on the side line telling you what to do. Its so bad at the hockey turfs that they have put up signs say these are kids. umpires are humans. coaches are volunteers. This is not the world cup. This shows what kids sport has come to.
Tyler Callum Owen's comment, August 17, 2014 9:03 PM
This article is completely true as parents are the main influences in our adolescent lives as they encourage and discourage all kinds of activities but when they are on the sideline the beast comes out, From personal experience I can remember my mum yelling and screaming at the referee and players, which is totally uncalled for and destroys the point of playing sport which is to have fun and be competitive compared to just being competitive.
