Just wondering because over the last couple of weeks I've heard enough to last a lifetime..
You should have heard some pathetic grandparent 2 weeks ago when my daughter was playing her U11's rugby game...!! Quite pathetic it was... he was pacing up and down the sideline - but 5 yards ON the pitch, and when he was approached and asked to step back off the pitch he was abusive and confrontational.Just wondering because over the last couple of weeks I've heard enough to last a lifetime..

I hate comparing Brass Bands to Football as much as anyone else on tMP, but we have to look at the attitudes (for want oof a better word) of football supporters towards rival supporters/teams. Comments such as 'that Ref/Adjudicator doesnt know what he is doing and 'we should have won today' are commonplace in all competitive fields. We should be thankful that 'Brass Band Hooliganism' doesnt exist and the worst it gets is 'bitchiness' and 'controversy'. There will always be someone who questions the judgement of those in a position to judge (generally those who do not benefit from the decisions made).
I know you're talking about the movement but I have noticed alot of nasty comments on here, particually in the last couple of weeks. However if you think this forum is bad for bitchy, argumentative comments you should go on the teaching forum called the staffroom on the tes website. It is unbelivable I don't post on there because it's too scary!
