Just this past weekend, I one again experienced a youth sports phenomenon known as “Silent Sunday”
If you don’t know what this is, basically once a season, spectators are requested to stay silent. No loud cheering, no singling out any one player for accolades an certainly no derogatory comments aimed at the opposing team.
As I sat there, doing my best to accommodate this unique “rule” I had time to observe the other parents and I found it fascinating to watch their behavior when they weren’t allowed to hoot and holler.
I thought it would be a great idea to dissect this concept on this Saturday’s show.
I want to hear your own individual stories from Silent Sundays present and past. What are the benefits and pitfalls of Silent Sunday? Should we try a “Silent Season”?
Very anxious to get your thoughts so please go to our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Hey-Coach-Tony-on-ESPN-Radio/137140103045901 and let me know what you think. And remember, if you like the page, you will you’ll get up-to-date information about the show and various other topics.
Look forward to hearing from you.
Personally, I think that’s a dumb idea! I’m sorry, but what exactly is the point? What message are they trying to get across? Is this for the parents to learn self-control or for the kids to learn to play in total silence? It will not teach parents any self-control, and it would freak me out as a player to have totally quiet stands. Who comes up with these crazy ideas anyway?
