Prolly once year for me. But when they look I am waving play on...

You think I would not longer be amazed at how much a parent is willing to accept for their child to win.

State Cup game and players from each team clunk heads. I stop game and we get the trainer. Very clearly I let the coaches know that both players will return at same time due to only one trainer. I was not going to allow a team to play man up for that 5-7 minutes of evaluation. Sure enough...6 minutes later the trainer nods and player one races to touchline and she begins on player 2. I ignore sideline. Soon, parents then coaches begin yelling that she gave him permission to begin playing. I remind coach what I said... and the parents are losing their minds, because... win at any cost is the important thing. Yeah, these days my patience is pretty thin with the adults...
