PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania (Reuters) -- The father of a young football player pulled a gun on his son's coach because he didn't think the boy was getting enough playing time, Philadelphia police said on Monday.

Wayne Derkotch, 40, was charged with aggravated assault after getting in a fight with the coach over the amount of time the boy was getting on the field at a game for 6- and 7-year-olds on Sunday morning, said police spokesman Officer Raul Malveiro.

"There was a physical altercation about what child should play or not play and then he pulled the gun," Malveiro said.

There were no injuries and Derkotch fled before being arrested after a complaint was made by the coach, whose name was not released, Malveiro said.

1. He's a Philly sports fan.
What else would you expect from him? Next they should just put jails under the bleachers at the peewee football field.

9. They got rid of Eagle's Court

It seems we Philly fans have gotten a little more civilized with the move to the Linc

4. sure
Dolo has been a cub reporter for me in the past. Don't see why you can't.

The pay isn't great and I allow smoking in the office and sometimes you might have to do 'things' for me but other than that it's a great gig!

:D

from the end of the article:
<snip>
Parental behavior at children's sports events has come under scrutiny from groups such as the Citizenship Through Sports Alliance. The group's study gave parents a D grade for their conduct and involvement at kids' games.

An Internet straw poll of nearly 3,000 by the Center for Sports Parenting found that 85 percent of the participants had witnessed parents or coaches becoming verbally abusive during games. Forty percent had seen physical abuse.
