Shame

Do all the referees around here cater to Alleghany teams? If you can't go out on the Field and conduct yourself in a fair manner then you have no reason being out there. You hurt the Kids when you allow certain teams get by with all the illegal playing they do. I been watching and supporting Little league Football all my life and now Im 65 years old and The game calling was said not to mention what happened at the end of the game. Those kids need to be suspended from alleghany for cussing and tauting after the game.

I'm a parent on Alleghany side..I wouldn't go as far as to say that the refs cater to us, cause that' def not the case. We have played several games and it seems we have more flags thrown when playing Covington than any of the games put together. I don't believe our team was out there cussing and taunting as you say. They are a great group of young boys. I can however say I'm ashamed at the way some of the parent's on our side act..but just because you have a few loud mouths around doesn't mean you blame a team of kids. Seems to me your a little upset that Covington didn't win.

Where were you "sad"? Definitely not at the same game I was. Our boys were instigating fights the whole game. After the game parents, coaches, and our players tried instigating a fight. Ridiculous. I'm ashamed to be apart of such an organization. The calls will begin pouring in this morning, and I don't blame Covington one bit for being upset.

I'm proud to say but the Alleghany deserved that win and they were not instigating anything they were just protecting there friends and family and it's pretty sad Covington can't take a loss like the rest of the teams he'll when they beat Alleghany you didn't see us trying to run on the field start stuff so like I said it's just loss take it with a grain of salt and move get over yourself

Ok here is the way i see it,if you think that the titans started the argument last night ,then you was sitting in a different section of the bleachers than i was,most likley on covingtons side!Here is the truth,while our team,parents,and coaches was on the feild celebrating our victory,covingtons crowd started yelling TITANS SUCK! Do you all remember any of that?And do you remember which team had an adult run across the feild to start a fight?Oh by the way the fine police force came in and made the best tackle on the feild that covington had all night!!!Lets think back a little maybe 2 years back.Oh thats right our boys was on b-leage at that time when covington had won the super bowl.Do you remember how they celebrated on the feild back then? Well I still do! It wasnt much different.Lets face it,they have been the super bowl for the last seven years.Good for yor boys.You should be proud!Now let us be as proud of our boys while you sit this one out!!!It is our turn!!!

I am a parent of a Covington player. My son played basketball, baseball & football this year. I am appalled at how football was conducted by the parents. Both teams were out there acting ridiculous! I try to keep him in sports to keep him busy and not out here finding things to do that could lead to trouble. This was supposed to be FUN this was supposed to mold him for upcoming life events. Teach sportsmanship, leadership, how to be a team player. This sport did none of the above. I feel terrible for all of these children that the parents on both sides acted in such a manner. These are your children they are our future. We should be teaching them better. I came home with my son and apologized to him for the events he watched. This was not any fun for him an I felt like a terrible parent for even letting him play. I hope that you all went home and hugged your child and told them they were a winner to you just for the simple fact of being out there and playing. I would like to think that you also told them that what happened was unacceptable on both sides! This is just a game and they are only children. I hope that enough parents come to their senses and can be adult enough to realize the action's on both sides were wrong. All the teams played their best and I hope that the winners of the Superbowl are proud because of hardwork dedication and because it was fun and only a game.

You people must not understand. I was taking up for the boys. Alleghany side has a good group of boys and I dont believe they started anything. I think covington is a joke. Everytime we play them there are flags thrown the whole game. So I dont know where the hell anyone got I was taking up for covington side.

Everyone just calm down. This is only about the fact that yeah Alleghany celebrated their hard fought victory over their rivals.Had the shoe been on the other foot covington would have done the very same. Need I remind everyone when Covington would harm one of our players they would cheer about the thing that they had done. I was at the game and I saw every thing. The young man that charged at the Alleghany fans took it way too far. Another fact of this matter is sportsmanship, harming children on purpose and coaxing these young men in harming the other teams "star players" and chanting on the side lines that west was a "one man team" is as poor a sportsmanship as I've seen in all my years. If you people want to complain about the celebration take it up with all the higher level sports like varsity football or the NFL or college football. This behavior is common practice among this level. It seems to me we have forgotten that this level of sports is supposed to help the kids get ready for the higher levels and teach them morals. One of these morals is how to take lossing and failure and learn from what they did wrong. Those boys from covington are some of the hardest playing athletes in the area and just needs to let this sit in the back of their minds

As I stated it was poor sportsmanship on both sides. It was a lose lose situation. I watched a young man get escorted out of there in the first quarter because he was on the Covington side screaming for the other team just to antagonize. I also watched as people cheered when a child was hurt that played on the Allegheny side. It was absolutely the worst thing I have seen. I can only hope that these kids have better conduct then their parents did.

I wasnt there and have nothing involved but here is my take on what i have read.

If the kids were behaving in such a manner as stated start with the authority. That would be coaches. If this is a, b, c leagues then they are volunteers and can be removed and reprimanded. If the coach allows such behavior they dont need to be a coach.

If the coach didnt know he should be informed. When we screwed up as youngns we ran. Little league, middle, high school , and college. Coach ran our asses in the ground. Big punishment? No, but it solved to problem. If a player continued acting inappropriately they were suspended. Coach should have enough authority to suspend any kid who acts like a dick.

Parents and spectators have to self govern. When i coach my kids teams, if parents push it too far I stop the game and ask them if they are finished. Most do not like being singled out and shut up. If they choose not to stop i inform them that they are setting a bad example and either it stops or ill forfeit the game. As a coach i feel i have that authority. Lets just say i havent had to forfeit. Other parents get involved and help tone down the problem.

I know who some of the Covington players parents are. Oh my God- on behalf of Covington- So sorry you had to experience these really ugly people! The kids act like they have more sense than their parents. Little league is about learning the game and sportsmanship and learning how to lose gracefully. Blaming a referee for a game is just SAD. These are all children. GET OVER IT.

Both teams have busted their rear ends this season to get to where they are today. Yes, Covington lost to Alleghany. In my personal opinion, Covington took the loss quite well. It was definitely a great game! We ALL have a long way to go.

Remember, we're discussing children here. The actions of the parents on both sides, and Coach Chris Hall was totally uncalled for. I personally seen Coach Chris Hall give Covington's A-league football team his middle finger. There's no denying that.

The complaints have been turned in, and I'm sure there will be more to follow. Just let it go already.... They are children!!!!!

They didn't teach the kids on either side any true sportsmanship. when you let kids pick up a kid and slam them in from of the ref is uncalled for no matter what team you play for. they need to give a public apology for letting the kids down

Chris Hall did no such thing. I am an elderly man and was at the game and watch Mr.Hall the whole time while he was exiting the field and the whole post game period. Alleghany Mom you need to go get your vision checked or stop attending football games, I know you may not like Chris but don't go making false accusations about a man that did no such thing. Chris Hall is a good man and he takes care of his kids. Rick Rice I agree with you 110%. That goes for you to
a football dad, a football mom and Titans. Superviser I could care less about the men that gave up on officiating. If they can't take criticism they can go do something where there is not people around. It just goes to show you what kind of joke we have for "Supervisors" at the Rec department.I will end this explosive rant with you all need to shut the hell up, get over the fact that your little boy won or lost and get on with your lives. This time next year you will all be bitching about another game with other stupid circumstances. Now if you will all excuse me I am up way past my bed time
