Someone sent us this story from the Nashua Telegraph of some of the worst sport parenting you’ll ever see. But since this newspaper we’ve never heard of has a paywall they could only send us a picture of the physical copy of the article. Here it is:
Just to sum it up, here’s what happened:
- Dad thinks his son is going to play football at a Division 1 college
- Son elects to drive his truck onto Nashua North High School’s athletic fields during the summer and destroy them
- Son gets suspended from sports for one year, is facing legal charges, and Dad claims he made him do 32 hours of community service
- Dad is suing the school district and was quoted as saying that he is going “balls to the wall” because they won’t let his son play football and baseball
- Dad says he’s not trying to let his son skate and claims that he’s taking full responsibility, but thinks the district is violating its own policies because son destroyed the fields during the summer and not when school was in session
This is the Dad, Joseph Priore:
And you know he’s serious about the lawsuit because he’s going “balls to the wall.” This is a common legal term that lets the defendant know just how much trouble they were in. I mean, the school was fucked either way. But now, they’re super fucked. Once those balls get stuck to the wall, all bets are off.
Dad also claims that he’s not letting his son skate. Except…..that’s exactly what he’s trying to let his son do. The kid destroyed a field that probably cost the taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars a a minimum to fix. And he did so because as a jock, and a big guy, he felt like he was king kong of Nashua North High School. So good for the school for actually holding a kid accountable.
But of course in today’s everyone gets a trophy generation, kids are being enabled by their parents. Dad wants him to get a reward (the right to play football) even though he’s done nothing to earn it. The best lesson a father can teach his son at this point is that your actions have consequences. And I’m willing to bet this isn’t the first incident involving is son, which probably led to the school having zero tolerance this time around.
Dad seems to be the ultimate helicopter parent, who spends a significant amount of time turning his son’s football highlights into memes:
Oh, and this isn’t Dad’s first time being a nuisance. It’s basically what he does. Like that time he started an unfounded rumor on the Nashua, NH Civic Sounding Board Facebook page that a kid brought a gun to school and was chased out of the building by the cops. A completely made up incident that was debunked by teachers, and which he was using to push for metal detectors in the high school:
Then there was the time in December when he threatened to sue the parks and rec department in Nashua for not making big enough shirts for his son:
His son is indeed a big boy:
But obviously the situation could’ve just been resolved by making a couple phone calls. Instead of, ya know, threatening to sue everyone on Facebook.
The bottom line is, the kid fucked up and now he’s gotta pay the price. It’s the best life lesson he’ll ever learn. And guess what Dad? If your kid is good enough to play Division 1 sports in college, they’re gonna offer him scholarships anyway. Just ask Randy Moss or 90% of D1 athletes who enter college with baggage from back home.
