    A former soccer player, Barlow had to make a tough call when a knee injury and several surgeries left him unable to play. Wanting to stay involved with the sport, he decided to become a referee for youth games. Eighteen years later, the attitudes of parents whom he dubs “cheeseburgers”[url=http://www.buyusacigarettes.com]Newport Cigarettes Suppliers, all Quality Newport Cigarettes[/url] have been fouling not just his experience on the field, but also that of the young players and referees. “Ninety-eight percent of the parents that are out watching these sporting events are supportive … cheering and loving their kid, and doing all the things you’re supposed to do,” he clarifies. “It’s the 2 percent that are causing all the chaos and the toxic to enter our game.” To Barlow, a “cheeseburger” is the latter 2 percent: “It’s typically the person sitting in the chair, eating the hot dog, eating the cheeseburger, drinkin’ the drink, in the shade.”

    Barlow’s first brush with “cheeseburgers” was early in his officiating career at a children’s soccer game [url=http://www.buyusacigarettes.com]Newport, the top cigarette brand for black Americans, is aggressively targeting youths [/url] with players under the age of 10. Unruly parents on both sides of the field were verbally harassing each other, and the coaches were starting to become physically aggressive. He recounts, “I’m in the middle, and I start hearing curse words. And I’m not affected by curse words, but I see the players. And the players are now not just playing soccer, but they’re looking over at their parents and their coaches.” As the situation became more intense, Barlow yelled out to the crowd, “What are you guys doing? This is a kids’ game. You guys are acting like children. Let the kids play!” That made the situation worse: After he warned the adults not to continue yelling lest he abandon the match, one parent told him to “f*** off.” That’s when Barlow ended the game: “I told the kids, ‘Sorry about this, kids. This game’s over.’ As he walked away, parents and coaches followed behind, yelling insults and threats. “That’s when I realized I was either an idiot for becoming a referee or there was a real issue. I think it’s both.”
