More Bad Press: Fight @Eclipse Game


What happened at the Girls Eclipse Soccer Game between Greece & Attica on Sunday?
  
From rochesterbuzz.com:

Pat spoke with Greece Police Lt. Steve Chatterton about the incident. He said Greece Police responded and arrived as the fight had come to an end. The referees essentially told police that both Greece and Attica parents were in the wrong. No one was seriously hurt in the fight. No arrests were made as both sides admitted to wrong doing and walked away peacefully. A police report was filed to document the incident.

When will parents learn to control themselves? This type of behavior is a black mark the whole community. Stop living your lives vicariously through your children, let them be kids and you be the adults. Lead by example and not the bad example exhibited here.

I wonder how frequently Greece cops are called for fights at Greece sports events. Anyone know?

Way to go Greece parents! This story made the top headlines on the noon news.

I was there. The confrontation could easily have been avoided had the couple Attica parents not walked across the field and started fiercely yelling at the Greece parents. The Attica parents clearly started it. If you were not there, then don't say things that you don't know about.

If the parents can't control themselves, how do we expect the students (their children) to?

To MF @2:48PM ~~ What a ridiculous remark!! I do NOT have to have been there to know it was THE Top Story on the noon news today!

Sounds like YOU are making excuses for the Greece parents. They COULD HAVE WALKED AWAY, right??? It takes TWO to argue and they CHOSE to escalate it ;)

@SCATS

The news apparently said that is was Greece's fault. The news was incorrect. Both sides were at fault when the incident escalated to fists. However the Attica parents were the ones who came across the soccer field and brought the fight to the Eclipse parents. If you notice in the video, the fight happened on the side that the Eclipse players were on. There wasn't any walking away.

All stuff you would know if you were.....THERE.

To 1:11AM ~~ Sorry, but I'm NOT buying your claims that they couldn't walk away. I notice in the video it's a BIG OPEN SPACE. Walking away was an option. They weren't trapped inside a fenced area with no escape if they didn't engage in the fight. As I said before, it takes two. Maybe Attica "brought the fight" but Greece decided to enter it.
