Really? A death threat?? 🤨🙄 What are you, nine?? Oh wait, even normal nine-year-olds don't do that!

This dad also couldn't keep his cool:

Thanks, Reddit, for the entertainment and showing us how NOT to behave during a match. 

It's just sad to see sports parents lose their dignity (and their kids' respect) over some youth sports match in an unknown town. Parents, youth sports is supposed to be fun. Don't be the adult that ruins it!

AND WE'VE GOT A BONUS FOR YA! ENJOY!
