    Oh for F'in sakes!!!

    (CNN) -- An overcompetitive parent gets into an argument with a stubborn coach because he thinks his child isn't getting enough playing time -- it's a familiar scene on youth sports fields across America.

    Now, a Rhode Island senator wants the state to step in and create a formal outlet for the "concerns and objections" some parents have.

    Democratic Sen. John Tassoni Jr. introduced a bill that would create a youth sports oversight council on the state level. The council would act as mediator in disputes between parents of youth athletes and sports officials.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    My idea is better: video the game and send a copy to the parents (who are forbidden to attend). :)

    I have an even better idea - remove sports from the schools entirely and allow private clubs to form. Parents want in put - the can give it to the clubs.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
